Hey there is this guy who I really love but the problem is that he lives in another country. and I know my parents wont approve if I go there to live with him if we get married. But next year i will be 18 so I can be able to make my own decisions and get my own life. I want to prove to them I'm responsible though. For some reason they keep trying to spy on me. and I would tell them when its the right time but nows not. i am very serious of our relationship and so is he. I'm ready to put my past behind me and start looking to the future. I was going to visit my family every Christmas and so we could still keep in touch and i could call everyday. I am very confused if I should follow my dream or just not hurt my parents. Its only a year until i turn 18 and I need to get my own life and everything. I feel like a hampster stuck in a cage when I am at home. I need some advice. My cousins says I should go with what I want to do. But I just dont know.
