          re: dont know what to do

          Hi and thanks for reaching out to the National Runaway Safeline. It seems like you are really having a tough time with your parents. From what you are saying it sounds like the religious or spiritual expectations on you from your parents have caused some tension and stress. Have you tried talking with your dad about how you are feeling with all of this? Sometimes it can be helpful to have a supportive person there with you and if you want to call us, we can always discuss the option of a conference call with your parents where we can be on the line to help you have some of these difficult conversations.

          It’s totally understandable that you might not be sure whether or not you should go or not. At 15 years old, your dad does have legal responsibility of you, so in order to stay anywhere else you would definitely need his approval. If you were to leave and stay with your boyfriend, do you think that would be a long term option? If you did end up going and needed a safe place to stay, you can always call us at 1-800-RUNAWAY 24 hours a day and we can connect you with information for shelters or other resources. We are also available from 4:30-11:30pm CST through our live chat at 1800runaway.org. If you would like to talk more about your situation, please don’t hesitate to contact us again.

              Re: Runaway with MY TRUE LOVE?

              Hello,
              Thanks for reaching out. It sounds like you’ve got somewhat of a plan to leave home at some point and live with your boyfriend. Also, you’re worried that your folks will come and find you after you’ve left. Those are some serious concerns and you’re doing the right thing by informing yourself with what rights you have.

              If you’re 17 and from what we gathered, leaving home after you turn 18, there’s a good chances that no one will be able to make you do or go anywhere you don’t want to go. If you find that you’re parents come looking for you, you have the right to file a restraining order on them with the police department.

              What makes you think they will come and find you to hit you? Is this something that has happened before? That’s probably a scary thought to have when you’re trying to take care of yourself.

              If you’d like to explore options that might be available to you, please call us at 1800-RUNAWAY (786-2929). We’re anonymous, confidential and available 24/7. We’re here to talk about way we can support and advocate for you. We are here to listen, here to help.

                Running Away With My Boyfriend

                Hi everyone,

                Well my story goes like this...
                My parents dislike my boyfriend dearly. I am 21 years old and my boyfriend is 26. He have been planning to get married however our only obstacle are my family. Recently, my brother and him got into a big fist fight. My brother told me to leave my boyfriend and if I did not end my relationship he said I has dead to him. So did my parents, they do not want me to speak to him. I guess they did not like him since the beginning since he is my first boyfriend. Now, I want to run away with him and start a family. My question is that I will be losing my family because of him. Yet I love him. I mean he is the guy I will spend my life with. Do you think is worth running away with him.

                  Hi,

                  Thank you for reaching out to us. We're sorry to hear that you have had to experience so much stress between your boyfriend and your family. It sounds like the situation has gotten pretty complicated. You asked our opinion regarding the current situation, and we'll do our best to answer.

                  We do our best to support you in whatever decision you make, and work hard to make sure that, whatever your decision, you are as safe as possible. It wouldn't be right for us to give our opinion given that we don't know your situation as well as you do. The best we can do is encourage you to consider all of your options. Sometimes it is helpful to make a list or write down the pros/cons of each scenario to come to a decision.

                  Something else that might be helpful to think about is the reasons that your family doesn't like your boyfriend. What are the reasons that they don't approve of him? Are there ways to address their concerns? Thinking through these questions might be a way for you to be able to find a balance or a compromise between your family and your boyfriend.

                  If you're still struggling, you are always welcome to contact us by phone at 1800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or by chat from 4:30pm-11:30pm. We look forward to your call or chat.

                  Best of luck to you,

                      Thank you for reaching out to us here at the National Runaway Safeline. It showed a lot of bravery to post your story. It sounds like you're in a difficult situation, with your family not accepting your relationship. We're sorry to hear that you're in this tough situation.

                      You asked where you might go and what you might do. If you do decide to leave home, there is support for you. We are here to support you in whatever decision you make, and we can also help you find a place for you and your boyfriend to stay. This might include a friend's home, supportive family, or a youth shelter.

                      You also mentioned considering committing suicide. One resource we'd like to suggest for when you're feeling this way is the National Suicide Hotline. Their 24 hour number is 1-800-273-TALK (8255). We are also available 24/7, and here to listen whenever you're feeling suicidal. We hope you'll reach out to them or us.

                        is it legal to runaway with your boyfriend at the age of 19?

                          Hello,
                          Thank you for reaching out to us. We aren't legal experts but we can speak generally. Typically at 19 you are not a minor anymore and it would not be considered running away. You can always contact us directly to find out more. Good luck.

                            I want to move out of town with my boyfriend

                            Well i used to live 18 hours away from where am at now. I lived there with a relative because i was going to school and my parents lived out of the country. So i lived there for a couple years. When i was 16 i met this guy and we started dating. When I introduced him to my relative she liked him, until they found out that he had tattoos was when she changed her mind and all my family started to judge him for his appearance. Although the only one that met him was the relative that i lived with and that was only once! So my family hated him and didn't want to see me near him. And when the school year was over they decided to switch me states and now am 18 hours away from him. I haven't seen him in a year just texting and calling. In a week am finishing high school and want to move in with him. But i don't know what to think, am really scared of my parents reaction but then again I want to be happy with him

                              I have to run away with my boyfriend

                              Hello,
                              Thanks for contacting the National Runaway Safeline.

                              We would like to assist you and try to answer any questions you might have about your situation.
                              It sounds like you are having a tough time with your family and their objections with dating your boyfriend. We understand that it can be very difficult being in such a dilemma.
                              You seem to be afraid of how your parents might react should you decide to move in with him after graduation. What actions do you think they might take?

                              You are right in wanting to be happy. It also might be good to consider what your plan is long term if you do move out to be with your boyfriend.
                              Does he have a stable place to live and have you thought about how you will survive?
                              Are you planning on continuing your education?

                              It great that you are reaching out to NRS and giving yourself an opportunity to express your feelings.
                              Good for you.

                              You stated that it’s been a year since you have seen your boyfriend have you thought about making visits to see him before you decide to move out altogether. This might give you two a chance to get reacquainted and discuss just what your plans are. Perhaps you can sit down with your parents and try to come up with a plan for them to meet one another.
                              How does that sound?

                              You are welcome to call 1-800-Runaway to talk about your situation and discuss some possible options.
                              NRS also has live chat at www.1800Runaway.org

                              We hope to hear from you soon.
                              Take care and good luck,

                                Im 19 and i want to runaway with my boyfriend to get married

                                Im 19 years old and i just finished college. 99% of the times im home cleaning, cooking, ect and my boyfriend is 24 and we known each other for 3 years however i break up with him 2 times cuz i thought i didnt love him but i realised that i do. But the problem is my parents want me to get married with someone else cuz he comes from a good family and his a good guy and that he has money... I tried to see if we could work out for my parents sake but when i went out with him and everything i didnt feel anything for him. I felt nothing for the guy and the guy is madly in love with me cuz his telling everyone is his family that im his wife which pissed me off cuz i told him i dont have the same feelings. I told my parents that i ended it with him cuz i dont see myself with him and they went crazy! My mum said some very hurtful things and everything which i couldnt believe what she said. I feel like im being forced to marry a guy that i dont love now that i stop talking with him and everything i started talking with my boyfriend who i love very deeply but i know my parents wont accept him cuz he has stammer(stunting some words) i dont care that he has that cuz he makes me happy and i accept him just how he is. My parents still dont know that im talking with him cuz if they find out they will kick me out and not give him the blessing to marry me. So im planning to runaway with him to a different country and get married but im still two minded cuz i was bought up with traditions which i have to have my parents blessing. I love my parents very much but they seem to not understand anything and i need help
