How can I tell my family I’m dating for the first time?

I’m sure other girls Many Have Gone through with this in Their Lives. Recently I started dating a close family friend. We’re the same age 14 years old. We have always beens very close and Decided to call Ourselves boyfriend and girlfriend. What can I say to my parents, That we’re dating? What do you think? We’re Both Jewish if That is a difference in the question.

  1. Mazel tov! That’s so cute. Well, first you could just tell them that you two are dating. They already know the guy really well, so it may be a relief to them that it’s someone they know. If they give you a hard time, tell them that you’re over 13 and considered adults now. 🙂 Or you could just not make an announcement and let them figure it out by the fact that you and he do stuff together a lot, like stuff that looks like you’re dating and see if they notice (which I guess they didn’t yet, huh?) At some point, maybe your parents and his parents will put 2 and 2 together. But it sounds like you’re kind of excited about it and you want them to know. They might be really happy, you never know.

    You didn’t say if you were Orthodox. I know the rules can be stricter depending on how religious your family is, in which case I’d keep it quiet for now.
