I am despondent. What do I do when my sophomore tells me she wants to live with her boyfriend (or my sister who live in the same town),,,,but she wants to get "away from me"

first of all, if he's 20, she's underage, and that's statutory. Unless she's 18, in which case...

But, she needs to be able to give you coherent reasons why the move would be beneficial to her, were you to allow her to move in with your sister. She needs to give you pro's & con's, and rationally argue her stance.

If it is because she doesn't like your rules, consider maybe having her help modify one or two. Don't let her set the rules, but have input on modification.
