My online fella is being freed from jail but my folks may not let me meet him

DEAR DEIDRE: I HAVE booked time off work later in the year to finally meet my boyfriend, but I know if I tell my parents they will do everything possible to stop me going.

I am 23 and he is 27. We met two years ago online but after six months he told me he was serving time for a petty crime. He lives in the US and is due for release next month.

We have fallen in love and talked about marriage and kids. I can’t wait to finally meet him and his family.

My parents know about him but they have never shown the slightest interest. They think he’s using me. I don’t want to let him go but I don’t want to lose my family either.

DEIDRE SAYS: You don’t need your parents’ permission but do tell them about your trip and listen to their worries.

Online relationships are a sort of fantasy. Maybe chatting with you has helped this guy through serving time but the reality of his life afterwards may not be right for you.

If you do go, keep an open mind – and check the issues around Covid and travel to and from the US.
