    I Need Advice

    Me and my bf have been together since 9th grade. We were both pretty smart and nerdy i guess, so you can assume his parents are strict, but mine arent. When we first started going out it was a secret because he wasnt allowed to have a gf. We didnt go on a date for more than 6...

    My boyfriends parents are very protective,
