I'm 13 and my parents keep me caged up!

Visitor's Question from a 13-15 year old Male
I don't want to give out my e-mail adress so if anyone has an answer please visit:


I'm the one who submitted "how can i deal with not seeing her throughout the entire summer". Thank you for your advice but I'm sorry but i guess i didn't put in enough information (sorry). So what I left out was my parents are strict almost to a fault, so going to the beach they would have to know who Iím with and why it's so important and when to pick me up and thatís if Iím lucky they might even want to stay there...I don't know if thatís babying me or a lack of trust (which I wouldn't know why because I never disobey them) And if I said we are just friends that would be just the same as saying Iím madly in love to them, itís almost like they want me to be gay. I donít have aim just e-mail and she has aim not e-mail so that wonít work. I donít know where she lives. And Iím her only guy friend so if we went to a mutual friend Iíd have weíd explain to our parents about 2 girls or sheíll have to explain about two guys. Do you think 13 is to young to actually love someone? What should I do to deal with this? I know it sounds ridiculous but I keep having a feeling that were going to end up together as adults, is that just a fantasy because I think that she is almost exactly like me..I love her sooo much

Thanks for you support and time
Your sight is awesome itís one of the main things that gave me the courage to ask her

Parents are worrywarts because they care. They want to make sure you're safe and you're not in a situation that's over your head. They want to give you a good childhood, not one you look back on and say, "I did -what?!-" Yes, it's a big pain in the neck right now, but (yuck i don't believe i'm saying this) it's for your own good. They'll let up over time, but it may take a while. Just keep proving to them that you're worthy of their trust and that you're mature enough to handle the new situations. Parents don't let go easily, you may just be stuck with them for a while.

I don't think that at 13 you love her yet, but you can certainly be in love with her. There's a big difference, but since you haven't loved anyone romantically yet, you won't know it for a while. But who cares? This is a lot of fun, very intense and overwhelming you right now. Enjoy it and as you get older, you'll grow into loving her. And if you grow apart, then you'll have wonderful memories of your first real relationship.

I wish you the best!
