    So about a year ago I became friends with a guy on Fb...and obviously we started getting to know each other on other social media platforms.We got to the point where we literally told each other everything and talked almost everyday. He is from another country but I came to realise he lives in the same area as my grandparents and where i go on holiday so thought I had a chance to meet him. We supported each other through a lot of things and ups and downs. I really like him and he is such a great friend. Dw it's not like a relationship cos he had a gf recently but did break up with her.. anyways, i told my mum ,she was supportive but my family found out and told me i shouldn't carry on becuase he is a stranger and that i should focus on my A levels,etc. My mum doesn't seem to want him and i to keep talking either & I get that he is a stranger but i practically have talked to him on the phone, know how he looks like and have sent him a gift to his address so i'm damn sure he is not a fako... I have so much respect for him and still want to continue my friendship with him in future...he said he won't give up on me/our friendship even in worst situations but I am not allowed to talk with him....i have told him this briefly and I do miss him a lot but don't know whether to catch up with him in the future when we r a bit more older and make our own choices in life...

    What if you told your mum to come with you to your grandparents' house? Then you go to see him, but that way she is in the local area in case you need her.

    When you're older you'll probably barely remember him!

    How do you know he is definitely who he says he is? Have you spoken on facetime? Talking on the phone it could be anyone at the other end.
