My parents are telling me things that they assume with out letting me tell them the truth, when I do get a word in, they don't listen and won't trust me to tell the truth

Are there any situations in the past that would lead them to not believe you? If not you may want to calmly tell them how you feel. If they still don't listen try to get a trusted family friend to help you.

You didn't say how old you are...that may make a differecne.

Trust is hard from both ways.

Keep trying to talk to them.

i've been through the exact same thing you have...actually i dated this guy behind my mother's back and i began to have problems with my controlling boyfriend...i had nobody to talk to. I asked my dad but he was not compassionate enough..in fact he didn't want to linger on the subject. So i talked to my mom and i told her everything...she was very mad at first. She didn't trust me for about a year...I think it's a trust thing. Show your parents that you are responsible and trust worthy....offer to bring your date to your house to meet your parents (depending on how old you are...) Just do simple jobs that will make your parents happy. When you go out let them know a specific time you will be back at....and if you know you're going to be late call and let them know...that's all i can think of for you.
Good Luck

mcatherine is right on...it is som much easier to trust and let go when the person is honest and open. Most of parents "no's" come from worry about what will physically happen to a child. I still worry about my adult kids!!!

Our love may be warped but it's love!!!
Try meeting them at least half way.

If they are abusive or overly controlling it will be tough but be aware of who you are and what you are doing...try not to be manipulative...
