He's Hiding Me from his Family
Visitor's Question from a 13-15 year old Female
My boyfriend does not want me to meet his family, do you think we are in a serious relationship or do you think that he is trying to keep a secret relationship and why? By the way he said that we are in a serious relationship... But I feel that he is still hiding something...
On one hand you could say maybe his family is really nasty, and he wants to try to keep his world with you safe from their prying. Maybe they drove away every other girlfriend he has had, and he wants to try to shield you from that.
But in the end, a relationship is about accepting a whole person - and their family is a BIG part of that. Hiding parts of yourself is not healthy at all in a relationship. So even if he is nervous about how his family will act, he needs to have you all meet. If they're strange, so what! They're a part of his life, but they're not *him*. And definitely, the more he tries to hide you from them, the more it seems that he isn't being fully honest and trying to hide something on purpose for deliberate reasons. So I would be gentle but firm in saying it's really time you met them.
