  • 15 years old but my boyfriend thinks im 18

    I've recently been cut off by my parents due to getting in trouble, I told my boyfriend who lives in a different state that I had gotten in trouble and lied to him that my parents were kicking me out.. I know this was wrong to do but I just can't take living here anymore. My boyfriend has a job and can easily support me the only problem is that he doesn't know I'm 15 and that I'm actually running away not getting kicked out. I've been really weighing my options here and I know I would be a million times happier living with him than staying here but I just don't know how I would be able to keep my age a secret and hide being a runaway from him. I also would be dropping out of school and I only just started 10th grade.. my mom would be heartbroken and I would miss her terribly but all in all my family is so different from me. I suffer from bipolar depression, suicidal thoughts, and self harm/self image issues. My mom and dad fight constantly about me and my brother is always forgotten by them I feel so guilty and I just think they would be sad for a little bit once I'm gone but soon will be happier. I want to leave and have a good place to go where I will be safe, loved, and happy I just don't want to be found and forced to come home.
