As the wife of a retired military officer let me put a different spin on this. Young military guys have one thing on their mind....I think you can guess what it is, well two. Sex and parties. Your young OP, have you EVER been around other military members? Ever been on a military post? I have and believe me, I can tell you stories of what I have seen and my husband has had to deal with when he was in due to the young soldiers NOT thinking. I can see where your parents are coming from, as I wouldn't want my own daughter going to a military post alone and several hours or states away.

IF you really want a relationship with this guy, give it more time. Let him come to you when he has leave, get to know one another, write letters. You sound like a very smart young lady....

Greysorrel is right. These guys do nothing but talk sex so when the girlfriends show up, so do babies nine months later. This is what your parents are concerned about altho may not be saying so. Are you prepared to deal with a pregnancy at this time and stage of your life? And don't kid yourself that you can fend him off. His hormones are raging which can trigger yours and you're both out of control. He may be a great guy now but by the time you finish college you will likely have found another. Go with your parents, they've been around the block a few times and see the writing on the wall.

Unless she has had a BD....she is 18...will be 19 "soon"....but is still only 18.

And just how are you getting there? Plane, car, train??? Who is to pay for that?

If driving? How far have you ever driven away from home? Do you have street smarts? Do you have any idea on how to get there, how to read a map, what to do if you run into trouble?

News is full of girls your age disappearing...I'm from AL and you know what happened to the Holloway girl in '05...still haven't found her body...and if she is LUCKY??? She was dead that first night...hate to think what is happening to her if she isn't.

Girls and women traveling alone are sitting ducks for perverts which may be why parents are not happy happy happy about this.

And they may also be privy to some of your other decisions that haven't turned out so well too, which makes them say they are not for it.

Last I checked you have to be 21 to rent a hotel room? And a rental car...

I did something similar. Nothing happened between us, I was very cautious and whatnot.. but the difference is I payed for everything...ticket AND room.

I think that's the main difference. If he buys it, his name is on there and technically you are HIS guest. If you buy it, your name is on there and you can kick him out if need be.

I live with my parents and I contribute to paying for food and gas and stuff. I pay for all of my "luxaries" myself. But I'm also very smart in having 5 backup plans incase things go bad with my guest.

You may have dated for 4 years but that doesn't mean you can just completely let your hair down. You're still young...he's probably still young. Your parents are right to worry.

If you can't afford ticket and hotel then you shouldn't even go IMOP. Just wait, and if your bf can't wait then that says something about him.

Sorry, I went there.
