what should i tell my parents so theyll let(not mentioning to them that im going w/ a guy) and how should i tell them?
That's a great idea! You could ask casually like "Hey, you wanna go to that Jambo Juice or something?"
I'm sure he'll go, because those are places your both familiar with, so it won't be awkward.
As for your parents are they over-protective or something? If you feel they'll freak out, but you want to be honest, you can tell them afterwords. Before, you could say just before walking out the door "Alright, I'm going to go meet friends down the street, bye!" Say it kind of broad, so they don't really know too many details, but they feel they know enough to feel safe. And since it sounds like those places are walking distance, you could probably go there any time you want, maybe even after school.
Good luck, and keep up posted!
