A guy at my school really likes me, and i really like him back. The thing is, my parents dont approve of him and they refuse to talk to him whenever we happen to meet up (which is happening a lot now). the thing is, its not even his fault that they dont like him! it was something that his mom did that was really rude, and now they are holding it against him. what should i do? i really want to make this work. any suggestions as to how to make them understand?

but be warned in taking Packer's advice *no offense to him* but this path will require alot of lying disception and if caught it will be a high price to pay. I'm not saying no, I'm saying be careful

Sit down with them and talk to them about him, make sure you let them know that he isn't rude like his mother. When you talk them you have to make sure that are calm and never get an attitude. If your parents don't approve of him though, then respect there decision; however that doesn't mean you have to give up without trying to put forth some effort.
