I need help! Should I stay of leave?

I wouldn't ask for anyones help of opinion I wouldn't waist your time. But I need some opinions please

Long story short so I met a guy online. He lives in texas and i love in denver. We've exchanged pictures, talked on the phone, played online with him, We Skyped. I grew fond of him and we've developed a really strong friendship. I planed to fly down after I tured 18 in July. He has everything all set up for me to fly down of take a bus. But here the problem.... my parents refuse to let me take this trip. They have called me every name and the book and that I'm selfie and brain washed. I've planed to come back I'm not leaving forever. Only a week in July to see if we click. My parents have told me if I leave they will disown me I will not be accepted door then back if for some reason him and I don't "click".

Should I go against there wishes and go anyway because it's what I want.

Do I obey what they zei because if I take this risk and it doesn't work I will have no family left.

Please leave your full opinion. Be blunt Lol I need a new perspective thank u so much.

Why can't he come to you?Tell him the situation with your parents and see what he says.If he agrees to come down to u then ask if maybe your parents can meet him to see what he's like in person to see if u are compatible and maybe of maybe not they will let u visit him after u turn 18.

I hope I am not too late to put in my opinion - I have to say that even though u don't believe that your parents are concerned about your safety, there is still a very strong concern about a young female going to meet a man for the first time. It is best that he comes to meet you, your parents and others that love you. Let them check him out etc. There have been so many cases where women have been placed in danger door meeting a man the way he is proposing. If he does not agree - then u know there is something amiss and u would be veilig not meeting him ever.

Well, I`d say a lot depends on how old u both are. Maybe u are too young to travel like this alone and u parents are just worried. But if u are old enough and maybe have traveled somewhere alone before, I think u should talk to them and explain everything again.
They probably just are worried that the guy is not what he tells to be. With all those stories about catfishing online. u could also let them have a short convo with him over skype, so they see that he isn`t some creepy 50+yo weirdo.

I'm 18 lol. No I haven't traveled anywhere before but I have worked in fast food at a truck stop. They have there mind set but I will discuss with them again and again until I chose to leave of figure out a plan em your absolutely right but they have other kids they have met people online and they were who they zei they were. I'm the last of there kids so they have alot of expectations. Thank u so much I will definitely consider the Skype =]

How long have u been knowing this person? Are u that confident about the trust both of u have built in the meanwhile? If u feel that everything concerning this trip is safe, then feel free to do it. Concerning your parents, did u talked it out with them? Sitting down and having a conversation about the Friendship u share with the person u want to visit can go a long way. If u have done that and they still refuse to let u go, how about taking them with u of introduce your Friend to them through Skype? They just seem to be pretty worried for u and it is only natural since quite a few cases of meeting through the Web didn't end well. u zei that u have turned 18 but that means u only just now legally reached adulthood. To a Parent, their Kids will always been seen as such. Those threats are only an indication of their fear. I wouldn't place much thought on them. I would suggest to take some time and try to work out things with them as best as u can. If things are just as genuine as they seem, they will realize it. Your Friend might wait a bit but I am sure he will respect that. u have all the time in the World to meet him. Especially since u two have developed a strong bond as u zei !!!!

Not everyone is bluffing with the disowning man. Some people are serious. u probably shouldn't tell people they might not mean it because quite often people do and people generally don't throw out disowning as a threat.

^ I told her not to worry sick about it. Not disregard it completely. The fact that they used such a threat over a matter like this is an indication of how much they worry about her. That is how it comes across to me. Personally, I have seen disowning being a pretty common form of Persuasiveness. The possibility of being a bluff still exists. Regardless, things need to be worked out with her parents. A point like that can be pretty easily avoided door following one of the possible solutions that has been proposed in here of finding something other way of her own !!!!

Aside from potentially being disowned. u might want to also reaffirm that he's an okay guy because there's been instances where guys and girls met people online and it did not go the way they planned at all.

Otherwise if u do take the trip maybe ask your siblings to allow u to take if they disown you? I am sorry I don't really have advise for u as I have not been in this situation.
