Allow your parents to share in the process of communication with these guys online.
In other words, as you begin to get to know a guy online, let your parents know about who you are talking to and give them some insight into the guy’s personality and background.
If you find that there are some similarities in both your background and that of the guy that you met on the online dating website, you should also share this with your parents.
If you are an adult and of age, your parents may simply be acting this way because they worry about the danger of meeting guys online that you don’t know nor do they.
Hence, they will tend to approach this online dating topic with caution because being your parents they are protective of you.
If you are interacting with a guy that they don’t know, they will naturally worry to an extent about whether this guy is good for their daughter and whether he is a dangerous person.
Being that your parents aren’t familiar with this guy that you met on an online dating website in any way, their minds can easily come up with the worse case scenarios as far as what this guy’s character and background may be like.
They would also feel as protective of you if you were talking to a guy that they didn’t know in real life who you didn’t meet through an online dating website.
It is how they will process this because naturally as your parents, they feel a strong sense of responsibility towards you.
Some parents hold on to this sense of responsibility long into their child’s adulthood.
In other words, it can be very hard for some parents to understand or come to terms with the fact that their child is now an adult and can make responsible decisions for themselves.
Hence, you should try using the angle of keeping your parents informed about this guy or guys that you may be meeting on online dating websites.
The more you talk about these guys, the more your parents will start feeling a sense of ease.
As long as you are giving them information that is promising about this guy, they may start getting the sense that they know him already even without having met him.
If they find out from you that there are several similarities in your backgrounds and life experiences, it may make them that much more open to liking this guy and thereby feeling that he is a safe online dating option for their daughter.
As long as you do this consistently over time, it will be easier for them to get to the point where they are willing to let you meet up with this guy or guys.
As you talk about this guy that you met on an online dating website, be sure to talk about some of the benefits of being on an online dating website.
Talk about some of the safety measures that the online dating website has in place in order to protect the identity and personal information of their members such as yourself.
Talk about how you are able to use several of the online dating website’s safety measures to either block someone that you don’t want to communicate with or the ability to send a complaint to the administration of the online dating website about said person.
In other words, by speaking in this way to your parents, giving them the time to learn more about these guys as you get to know them online and also informing them of the safety measures that the online dating website has, you will be able to get them to let down their guard over time and let you meet these guys.
This is how you convince your parents to allow you to meet up with these guys that you met on an online dating site.
Give your parents insight into who these guys are and find things about these guys that your parents can easily relate to.
