He'll be turning 17 in december and I'll be turning 15 in January. I've never had a boyfriend before and don't really talk about guys in front of my parents. I'm a good girl, good grades, stays out of trouble. But I just have a feeling when they find out how he looks and how old he is, that they'll freak out. I think of myself mature for my age though, and I don't see our age difference as that big of a problem.

Let me explain to you my parents and my boyfriend who've I've been with for a couple of weeks.

Mom: Doesn't want me to have a boyfriend. Only because she had one [same one] thru all 4 years of high school and he made her life a living h*ll. He'd never let her hang out with friends. But she needs to see that not all guys are the same.

Dad: Knows I'm not one who likes to give hugs or be touched. ;] Based on the way my bf looks he'd probably have major deja vu. His first daughter, my older sister, had a boyfriend who looks sorta like him, and lets just say he wasn't that good of a guy, and she had a kid with him.

Finally My Boyfriend: His personality over me is protective but not controlling. He's very sweet and opens up to me. He'd never pressure me into doing anything I didn't want to do. He really really likes me and is so sure that our relationship we'll last a long time. He really wants me to tell my parents about him. =]

His Looks&Habits: Okay so he's a lil taller than me, skinny but muscular. He has a total of like 5 tattoos. One is going to be very noticeable because its on his wrist. I like them, and dont see anything bad about tattoos, just a way of expressing yourself. He has a very bad habit, smoking. He knows its bad 4 him and he says hes trying to quit. He also has a tad of a drinking problem, again going to quit.

Please don't judge him, I know his true self. He's not a bad guy you just have to get through the habits and tattoos. He's been through a lot and trying to put his life back on the right track. My parents won't be knowing of all his habits, but I'm pretty nervous about the tattoos.

How do I tell them!?

Thank you so so so much.
