    Re: wanting to runaway with my boyfriend

    Thanks for reaching out to the National Runaway Safeline – we’re glad you found us. It takes a lot of strength to seek support and speak so openly about this tough situation you’re in. It’s clear you really care about your boyfriend and your mom, but the restrictions she’s put on you from seeing him are causing you to consider your options outside the home.

    Running away is a big decision, so it’s good that you’re thinking through the risks and are seeking support as you make your plan. It’s important to think through where you’d go, how you’d support yourself, how you’d continue your education, how you’d travel, and what you might do if the police were to find you. Running away isn’t a crime, it’s a status offense, meaning if the police found you, they’d simply bring you home (the exceptions being if you are on probation or if you are doing something illegal when they found you). You may also think about bringing a school counselor or family crisis worker into your conversation with your mom to mediate an arrangement where you can reach a compromise about you seeing your boyfriend. We have a database of resources that are low or no-cost which may be able to assist with this. We also offer a conference call service in which we act in this role which you can utilize at any time if you decide that is a good option for you. We are non-directive here at NRS, so we’ll never tell you what to do, but we would be happy to talk through your plan with you in further detail to make sure you feel confident in it and have a plan to stay safe. Please don’t hesitate to call us anytime, 24/7, at 1-800-RUNAWAY or reach out to us via our live chat service.

    Again, we’re glad you’re reaching out and are thinking this big decision through. We’re on your team, so don’t hesitate to reach out to us at any time. Stay stong!

    Best of luck,
    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.
