ive been talking to this one guy for a couple of months and he makes me feel better mental health wise and stuff like that. we end up talking late in the night tho and my parents found out and don't want me talking to a guy because they think i'm getting distracted. i don't think i am though? i've always been getting good grades and i just think talking relieves stress? we have been talking everyday now so it feels kind of weird if i just stop all of a sudden especially since it just makes me feel better. it felt nice just having someone to lean on and talk problems out with. do i just stop to avoid conflict with my parents and learn how to be alone again?

follow your heart, and find some way to explain to your parents how it's good for you. if they cannot understand, that is on them, you can still find some way through it

hmmm… perhaps your parents cause for concern comes on how you know this guy? is he a classmate or someone you found off the internet? i’m pretty sure you should be aware by now that the internet could be a dangerous place and that people lie and lure people into their traps. i would advise that you tell your parents to talk to this guy and get to know him that he is who he says he is and not some sick psycho killer or something. then prove to them that you can manage getting good grades and doing homework without the stress because you talk to this guy. you are right talking helps stress levels but it depends on who you spill to….if hes the good guy you think he is or if hes just going to hurt you with the information you provided him. again, dangers of the internet. also, another thing to consider is limiting the time you talk to him because maybe you aren’t getting enough sleep and talking would cause you to wake up later than normal or from doing any homework. also, be aware one day if you keep spilling your guts out he might get bored of it and not talk to you anymore, so yeah…something to consider. let’s just say ive been there, done that. good luck and hope i helped. hope you proceed with caution and take your parents concerns.
