what to do

so my boyfriend and i have been dating for around 8 months (we’re both 17) and recently i’ve been getting the vibe that my parents and grandparents don’t like us spending time together that much. we usually only hang out maybe 3 times a week so we get space. they like him, but they just don’t want me getting too distracted and heartbroken at a young age and i can understand that. but he’s honestly like my best friend and i don’t know what to do. any help??
