  • I’m 21 and my mom is not letting me talk to a girl who is 2 hours away

    I’m at a standstill in life at the moment. I met a girl in a college town 2 hours away, and I ended up telling her I want to start try and start something with her. She has graduate school a year from now and has already said she is moving to my area once she is done. I’m 21 and she is also 21. When I told my parents, mainly my mom, she freaked out, saying I’m not dating someone 2 hours away, and she started telling me to just move out and do everything myself. The most frustrating part is I have friends who are in long distance relationships and they are allowed to see them, stay with them, have them stay over with them, and are supported through it all. The girl knows about the whole situation and is still here with me, wanting to make things work, even saying she’s willing to wait until things are different in the future. She has told me she loves me, and I do too. The whole thing just feels different, like it’s meant to be and I cannot just simply let it go because my mom said I can’t. I’m in college, and so is she. She lives in a house at her college, and I am still at home because I am able to commute. I am pretty financially dependent on my parents, which is a big reason why I know I don’t have any kind of freedom. She has threatened to kick me out and cut me off because I told her me and a buddy were starting a small business on the side to make some extra money, and she went off the wall about it. She doesn’t know I still talk to this girl, and I am at a breaking point in my life.
