    I'm 16 soon to be 17 and my parents aren't allowing me to have a boyfriend. I'd looveeee to have one and I'm truly a hopeless romantic (i love romance books/films/poems, they're my guilty pleasure eeep) but my parents keep saying I have to wait before marriage to get one (their not really religious at all tbh). I'm SO tired of being lonely and I'd love to have someone due to the fact I'm constantly frustrated.. if you get what I mean. Coming from a Colombian/Brazilian background my dad is hella strict and isn't afraid on threatening me if a boy even talks to me on the phone!! I'm seriously clueless and all my friends constantly cuddle with their bfs while there is me . Anyone have any advice for me? Also any Colombian/Brazilian girls out there who faced this or know what to do? Thank you

    If there isn't any boy at the moment you are interested in I wouldn't worry too much about it. It's just thinking about imaginary scenarios. If there is a boy then you can start thinking about it more.

    As far as the frustration goes, have you tried relieving it yourself?

    Will you be going to uni? That could give you more freedom. I guess you have an option of hiding a relationship, not having one, trying to convice them or just going with it against their wishes and dealing with the consequencs. It all depends on your family and your desires really.

    I hope somebody has some better experience with this and can give you some more specific advice.
