well try to tell her that your boyfriend is not yogyakarta town, not every one in that place is the same, and also talk to your boyfriend that if he really love you then he should fight for it and try to impress your mother and get its permission.

okey, maybe you are right, i'll try to tell my mom that he's not from yogykarta. but sometimes, i feel afraid to be a lier. she'll be more more and more angry if knwing the reality. huft, however, i'll try this. thanks xeoeight, God bless you

xeroeight did not mean you to tell your mum that your bf is not from yogyakarta town. you will be lying to your mum. he meant that your bf is NOT yogyakarta town. he wants you to explain to your mum that she should not associate whatever bad things she experienced from that town to your bf. I can't agree more with xeroeight, this is the most ideal yet not the easiest solution to a problem such as yours. you must be truthful and honest all the time. lying to your mum will just make things worse. I would not suggest that you even try. good luck to you and your bf.

Explain to her calmly that you love him and you want her to give him a fair chance. If she starts in about the town remind her that he is not the town, he is a human being who just happens to have come from a geographic location that she dislikes. Respect her feelings, but let her know yours as well. Be honest with her and be firm in the fact that you expect her to give your boyfriend a chance.

opinion are the best parents,parents know what is best for their child but,if you truly love him then try to explain slowly at your parents, if people can not be assessed from where he lives
