First of all I'd like to say I am not a mom, Im so sorry! I am a teen girl looking for opinions from moms to see if my mom is being unreasonable.
I'll start from the beginning: I am a 14 year old girl, 15 in March, I think I am quite mature for my age- but also a little stubborn sadly. There is a boy I like who turned 17 the other day (about a week ago), he also likes me but neither of us have told each other, just out mutual friend(s) talking to us both about it lol I have been out with him twice (once to the beach and once to the theme park) without telling my mom who I was going with (I know I shouldnt have!! I just knew she'd react the way she is now, Im sorry!!) but anyway she found out and grounded me for a month. Now 2 months since I last saw him outside of a club we both do I have asked to go to the town centre with him and my mom said no, I left it at that but asked again a few weeks later if I could again go to town with him. Again she said no, but this time I didnt just leave it at that. She has refused to let me go anywhere with this boy because of the age gap (2 and a half years). I have tried to tell her that he is the sweetest boy I've ever met, hes got a job, hes polite and so on (all of that was true, about him being really nice and stuff) but she wont listen. I have asked if she would like to meet him, maybe have dinner at ours or something, again she refused.
I guess I just want to know if you all share the same opinion as my mom or if I'm being stupid or something. Please dont say he just wants to get in my pants, Ive known him for 3 or 4 months (and we talk pretty much all the time) and he is really not that sort of person, trust me :) Also, I think mom is over reacting by never letting me go to town or anything with him, because we're not even dating- I mean in the future maybe but not right now... I dont know I just wanted some other opinions on this I guess, Thank you all for reading this even though I know its really long sorry xxx
