>:[ I really wish I lived on my own.

I moved back in with my parents after graduating in May b/c of a recent break-up. Now, I wish I hadn't and just found my own place, even if I'm saving money currently. The story is not that simple. I met a guy over the internet and have been talking to him for 2 months (texting, webcam chat, the equivalent of e-mailing, facebook poking, we don't like talking on the phone but have left voicemails for each other) but have yet to meet him in person. He and his brother are in the middle of a cross-country road trip, and the guy decided a while ago to make a stop to meet me. Now, my parents are a bit old-fashioned, esp. my dad. (They never gave us kids "the talk".) And my dad has decided not to let them sleep in our house; they will have to help with backyard work to be able to eat dinner Fri. and lunch Sat. (that's all he's offering) at our house and use our shower/facilities. Here's where I have stronger objection. In addition, he's told me just a moment ago that he doesn't want the two boys here past Sunday morning, "here" being in our neighborhood I'm guessing. He wants to be able to celebrate my mom's and my birthdays in private. (Our birthdays are within 3 days of each other.) His reasoning is understandable - he doesn't trust how I met the guy on the internet and don't know him in person, and they're two guys. Maybe I should be speaking up about how much I've talked to this guy (I'd be amazed if I had been conned with a several years old fake Facebook profile connected to 600+ friends and family, plus pics). There is also the fact that not all questionable people you meet through the internet, and not all people on the internet are completely questionable. Then again, I can't help but feel like my dad would actually worry more if he knew details about my contact with the guy - taking on the mentality of "what I don't know can't make me worry". It's just really frustrating me right now, esp. since the guy is coming tomorrow afternoon. I just want to be able to enjoy his presence when he's here. Now I can't stop thinking about the stubbornness of my dad. neutral
