hey! I say you tell her about the guy and see if you can go on group dates with him. (If no one wants to go on a group date, just bring some of your friends and have him bring some of his) then after some time (like a month maybe? or until you're comfortable with him) ask your mom if you can go on a date with him just the 2 of you. If she is still uncomfortable, bring him over your house one day so he could meet your mom. That can be nerve-racking but if he's worth it do it! And your plan sounds good but you could probably ask it all in one conversation and it wouldn't be as awkward to bring it up 3 different times.

First if all, be mature about it. If your mom says no, just say something like ok, I understand. I think before you bring up a real date, you should go on a group date with him. Maybe go to the movies with him and one of your friends and her boyfriend. When you get back tell your mom how fun it was and how much you like him. Your parents will be much will willing to let you go on real dates if they like the boy. Then say something like "we really wanted to go to that new restaurant on Saturday, but I can't date til I'm 16, right?" if they say no just sigh and act kinda sad that day (but be mature). The next day bring up another conversation with your mom. Ask her who was her first boyfriend, and how old she was. Then you could say "I really hope (name) is my first boyfriend, but I guess not till I'm 16. (sigh) it's gonna be hard to wait two whole years, because I really like him. Why do I have to wait until I'm 16 again?" Respect her answer, and be mature. This will let her know that you are still thinking about it. The third day, your parents should be warmed up enough to pop the real question. plan out what the whole date would look like. Where you would go, what you would do, who would drive you and pick you up, what time you will get there, and what time you will be home. Write it all down. Make sure the guys parents approve before you show it to your parents, they are more likely to approve if other parents have approved it. Make sure everything you are doing is totally safe. Start out by saying "mom, I know you said i need to wait two more years before I can date, but (name) is really realy nice and we both want to go on a real date. Here is all the information about what we would be doing. It's totally safe and his parents already approved, so all we need is your approval." if they say no, again respect their decision and be mature. If it doesn't work try the whole process again in 2 weeks-month. Hope this helps, and hope it works!! Post back!!
Lots of love,
