You've obviously shown that you are responsible and the fact that you're 21 you shouldn't be even needing your parents' permission. I left home for a week to California when I was 19 without my parents' permission. My mother knew about the plan and wasn't fond of it, but she also knew that was considered an adult and couldn't hold me back.

Whatever your parents' reasonings for not allowing you to go is stupid. However, you can set up a certain time that you and your parents can skype (or whatever) so that they know how your doing since you're close to them. If you can get that, they may be more lenient.


wow that must have taken alot of guts! yeah thats a great idea they have no problem for me to travel within the states for a good reason like california cuz i have family there but i never traveled overseas so they will get scared... ill defiantly do with the skype anything as long as i goo! lol

It is all about their comfort with whom your going to see, spend time with and ultimately if something goes wrong who will be calling to let them know what happened and how your are doing. Eg. I grew up just south of Whistler, BC my parents had no problem with the 30min(as a teenager drives, 140 on a highway meant for 80) drive to go skiing, but they would not let me go to Vancouver. And if you think thats bad, I used to make trips to Kamloops via the back roads (about 7hrs driving) every other weekend, but they wouldnt let me fly to Calgary for a convention! So I can understand your frustrations over this, but now that im older I understand what my parents were trying to do. My sister is 3yrs older than I am, but I had more freedom because of the maturity I had shown, my brother is 18 months younger but he never made the trips I did because of his lack of maturity. Dont take this as an attack on you personaly, I dont know you. But let this put some perspective on their views and most the time you can alleviate their misgivings and you will get to make the trip. Even offer to take one of them along, just I advise the more liberal and open minded one of the two as culture shock will cause problems.


I know i agree with you thanks so much for the input if i am not allowed to go by myself ill try to make it a family trip everyone can agree on

Option A: Send your look alike instead while you stay at home.

Option B: Let your look alike take your place while you secretly leave.

Option C: Take your look alike with you and make your boy very happy.


Option B please!!!

Sweetheart, if you are over 18, you are considered an adult who should be responsible for his or her decisions. Honestly, you won't understand how your parents feel until you become a parent and have children of your own. If anything were to happen to their kin, I'm sure they would be very heartbroken, more heartbroken than anybody else in the world because they will always see you as their little baby girl. You will be flying to a far, far away place where they will not be able to do anything to protect you from harm's way. You may find their caring and loving ways annoying or irritating but rest assured, they are just doing it out of pure love, dear. In my young years of dating, I did learn a big lesson; to never let a boy get in between you and your parents especially if your parents do not fancy the boy. I say that because parents are older, they have gone through relationship phases and they also have a better sense of picking out who's a better partner or not for you. Anyway, I hope things work out and your parents and boyfriend get along.

I Guess the idea here is the fact its not because shes about to be 21, but she doesn't want to put a rift in her relationship with her family?

It was a mix of guts and annoyance with my stepfather. I do have some family members in Cali, I just don't know where they live.
