    I'm 31. I'm not 13. I'm an adult.

    Why doesn't my parents allow me to stay overnight with him?! He wants to celebrate my birthday in Natural Bridge, just me and him but my parents doesn't want me to go there with him. I don't know what should I do now. I haven't felt freedom when I live with my parents :(
