Lip Service question – How do I tell my parents?  Please help our friend by leaving your comment.

I could use some advice. I recently started seeing a guy from work. I am having a hard time trying to figure out how to tell my parents about it because I know they will not like it at all, and they can tend to try to be a bit controlling. The guy is black (I’m white), and he is 10 years older than me (I’m 26).  I need to tell them soon because my dad works at the same company, and people are starting to talk because they suspect. Please help!!
