One of the things we get asked the most is how to get your parents on board with your long distance relationship. It can be hard - most of the time parents are just trying to keep you safe, and they’re afraid you’ll get hurt or worse if you just fly off far away to be with someone you’ve never ‘met’. One of the best ways to show them things will be ok is to have them meet your partner. Although it can, and probably will be awkward at first, arrange a skype call between all of you. Once they recognize your partner is a real person it can make all the difference, and they’ll probably feel a little more comfortable with letting you go see them.
We wish you all the best!
