My Parents Think my Boyfriend is not Good Enough for Me

I am currently a uni student in Asia, and my bf is in the states. I wanted to transfer to my bf’s uni, not only because of him, but also because I wanted to switch my major and I like it better the way education is in the states. But my parents think that I wanted to go to the states just because of him, and they strongly disagree with it. They also hate my bf now, and they say that they will never agree and be happy with our relationship.

I have been in a relationship with him for 10 months now and I really love him, and want to have a future with him. I don’t know what I can do to make my parents happy with him. I don’t want a bad relationship between my bf and my parents.

I’m still not giving up on the idea of transferring to a uni in the states, but probably a different one. However my parents still think that I am going for him. My bf and I have talked about it and we decided to work hard together on our studies so that my parents would one day agree and be happy with our relationship.

It just seems so difficult to make my parents be happy for our relationship. They think he is not good enough for me… Please help me out, I am really lost and don’t know what to do! Any advice will be appreciated!!

I have taken the quiz, and the answer was that I am not ready for it yet. But I feel it’s really difficult for me to break up with my bf, or leave a even further distance in between us…
We are trying to support each other to study hard and do what we are supposed to do now.
I just hope that my parents would at least be okay with our relationship, not strong disagreement…

Feelings always trouble humans. You can only see it clearer many years later, so it’s difficult for me to give you any pleasant advice right now.

I have the same trouble with my gf, too. Her mom won’t allow us being together. So we decide to break up now and hope her mom would agree us after I graduate. But I really don’t know what it will be in the future…
