If they ask if you are dating him, tell them that you are in a relationship but you don't want to categorize it.

Dear Amy: I am in my early 20s, and I have recently started seeing someone from a different race. My parents were OK at first, occasionally asking if we were dating (to which I answered no).
Even if it never turns into a long-term relationship, I feel like I've found a good friend.

Each time she moves it is because she has had major problems with her neighbors.
