I have met my fiancee online and we have been going out for nearly a year now. We are planning on meeting up really soon. he lives on the other side of the world. He/ we plan to make this work out and we even already sorted visa plans and wedding dates.
my family haven't met him and at the early stage of our relationship they have been criticizing and judging him. We talk everyday online and other forms of social media. and my family just keeps butting in and making me feel bad about being with him. What do I do for them to understand he is not that bad? **judging meaning- my family doesnt like tattoos and all that and he has some.
he also is straight to the point once someone accuses or judges him he defends himself to the point that my family thinks he is being disrespectful.

You really can't judge your family too harshly for not approving of him... you haven't met the guy either. I have met tons of really great people online, met a previous boyfriend online, but it's very unwise to actually get engaged to someone you've never met. If you're on circle of moms, it's pretty safe to assume you have kids, so I can easily understand that your family is just trying to protect you and your children. You can be anyone you want to be on the internet, your family probably doesn't want to see you get screwed over by someone who isn't the kind of person you think they are. Chances are, he's a good guy, but it would be really smart of you to slow down.
