he lives 200 miles away form me, so fair enough, i would have to stay over at least one night. he's teetotal, doesn't smoke, is intelligent, trustowrthy and nice. his mum's a librarian and his dad's a barrister. not exactly dodgy, eh?
i am old enough (nearly 18) to get around myself, and i'm going to uni in october, so how do i persuade my parents to let me go to his, on my own? his parents and sister will be there.
my parents are victorian and prudish, as they have only two daughters - my dad especially is bad like that.
As long as you're sure you know the guy as well as you think you do and you genuinely trust him. One of my friends had a particularly bad experience staying over at an apparently very good friend of hers. Being 200miles from home and desperately needing to get back isn't a great position to be in.
If possible, get him to stay at yours first. Let your parents meet him, make sure he's a model version of the "youth of today"
Alternatively, the white lie about going to see a girl (my parents are similar to yours, but were always funny about me sleeping at a guy's house).
Also, if you do tell the truth, and ask them if you can stay at his, mention all that you said in your first post, plus the fact that he's obviously a hard worker (and an Oxford applicant!!). That should go down well
