Hi, my name is Reka Morvay. I'm a psychologist, and I'm going to talk to you about how to tell your parents that you have a boyfriend. If this question comes up at all, I think it becomes obvious that you have parents who might have some kind of problem with you dating. So the first question is to figure out what exactly this problem might be. Why are you worried about telling your parents that you're interested in somebody? Is it because they think that you're too young to date, or maybe they don't like the boys that you chose to be interested in? Find out what exactly it is that their problem is, and only then, can you try to figure out a solution to how to introduce the subject to your parents and tell them, let them know that you are interested in somebody. Generally, if you want to avoid a big scene, it is best to give them a chance to get used to the idea. So don't try to dump all the information on them all at the same time, but maybe try to give them some hints that there might be somebody that you're interested in. That way, you can see their reaction, you can see...or you can have a conversation with them to find out what it is that they might object to if they do object to something. But maybe you'll be pleasantly surprised and you'll realize that your parents would be happy if you had a boyfriend.
