Mother found out...I just feel horrible. (12)

1 Name: Secret Admirer : 2009-01-31 04:30 ID:v/YnAsa8

I've been in a long distance online relationship for several months now. I'm seventeen, and the boy is nineteen. My mother has expressed an EXTREME disapproval of internet dating, and because of this, I've played our romance off as a friendship.

Your mother is dominating you. Depending upon the legal age for moving out, which I think you should have passed, move out. Now, don't be hasty about marriage. I strongly advise against it. I'm against marriage in the first place, but that isn't directly relevant to this. Move out and start working part time to support study if you study, otherwise get a job, and try to have a physical close distance relationship with this guy first if you really love him. See how things go.

we... patience is the key, if ur parent dun want u to have a internet relatiionship, then dont mention ur relationship in the front of ur mother, wait until ur boyfriend back to ur side, and then u can disscuss about it.

I am also have a long distance a relationship for 6 month, and I`ll have another 6 month before I can back to my country, and my parent doesnt care about it, we re both adult (21++) and we know which best for us.

OP here, it's really starting to become a problem...

Every single day since this has happened, I have been insulted and yelled at by my mother. She hasn't hit me since the incident, but the verbal abuse is more than enough to nearly cripple my enthusiasm for life in general.

I would suggest that you reach child abuse help lines. They will be able to provide you with useful advice.

Your mother is clearly being abusive, and probably the best way to adress this is to use a neutral intermediate. I think a professional psychotherapist would help, as it would remove her from the dominating position (older, legal tutor, etc).

Get the fuck out of there. Call a child abuse help line and ask them for help. Explain the situation to a friend, and ask if you can stay at their house. Your mother's behavior is unacceptable, and you aren't safe with her right now.

Agree with >>5 and >>6. It's child abuse.

>>3 seems not to have read the entire post. Terrible advice.

Unless you live in the same city or even state I can almost guarantee he is using you.

What makes you say such a thing?

your mom want's to make sure that the boy you're dating right now is a good boy with prospect or not...

see... i even don't know you all just from internet, and vice versa... you don't know me either.

Because your mom is being physically abusive, and you say the verbal abuse is really terrible, you should call the child abuse hotline and try to leave, or at least as soon as possible.

But, as a 17-year-old, you're young yet. Your mother may be harsh and possibly abusive, but online relationships CAN be risky. Your mom does have somewhat justified concerns.
