Two years ago I met a boy online through a friend. We became best friends within a week or two and we never get bored talking to each other. In fact, I can confidently say we've been in love for the majority of our two years and that we're soul mates. The problem is that he's nine years older than me, and lives on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean. I would love to see him face-to-face in the future and perhaps establish a firm relationship with him, but I'm terrified of telling my parents because they would probably flip out. I'm not quite sure what to think or do.
