I don't know why you got negged for that. I have liberal opinions on sexuality and I agree with what you said. She should have checked with her parents in advance, so that they were prepared and wouldn't be stressed out. I always check with my parents about having someone over, whether they are a friend or a boyfriend. Her parents might have felt overburdened and disrespected because she did not ask them beforehand.

Is your boyfriend a girl? Why cant he respect the fact that your parents are not happy with their daughter sleeping with a guy under THEIR roof. I say good on your parents. My parents would have done the same.
I also think that the boyfriend should not have reacted badly, at least for his girlfriend's sake. I would expect anyone I was dating to show respect to my parents. I love them and I'd be really pissed if I was his girlfriend. If he cares about her, then he has to care about getting on with her parents, no matter how old-fashioned they might seem to him.
Age is irrelevant here. If you're living with parents, you have to abide by their rules whether you agree with them or not.
He sounds really quite emotionally immature. He isn't worth if he's going to get passive aggressive and indignant about it. I hate it when guys pull that one on me. I want to tell him to grow up! If he's ignoring you, stop contacting him. He's trying to provoke a reaction from you and guilt trip you into being accommodating with his moods. Don't fall for it, honestly. Set the standard that if he wants you to know how he feels, then he has to communicate with you. Ah men complain about mind games but they are apt to play them too. I don't blame MancBoy for making that comment.

As for arrangement, we're nomore as far as I'm concerned. We can't possibly come back from this and I don't think it'll work. And furthermore he's gone into ignore moody mode! Not spoken to him allday!
^ That too.

but if he ends it over that then he is a bit of a tart.

On the 1st count, don't they care they've caused you such unhappiness!?

I know, and I'll never forgive them for ruining my relationship, but I honestly saw no problem with it. They got their wish, and are now happy, whereas I am the complete opposite. But hey ho - I haven't heard anything from him since Monday, so it was prob. a sign that it's not meant to be.
On the 2nd, you're probably right. Any guy would be majorly hacked off in that situation (found myself in that position once with a gf when we were around 16, her old man insisted on getting me a taxi when she'd said it'd be fine to stay over - funny thing was she was notoriously promiscuous and I'd already lost my V plates to her!) .. but you'd expect them to get over it and to understand if they really cared about you
