: Sounds like you found someone that interests you. The key word is "her parents won't let her date". This is not unusual in strict Greek households, although more greek families are becoming more understanding. The problem is not with her, but with her folks (most likely her dad). He thinks he is the master of everyone, including his daughter and will still try to control her for many years to come. One can only imagine the "control" a parent has today if a girl can't date when in college. This control is mostly by fear.
: You might want to just start a conversation some time and see where it leads. Some greek parents are more concerned about themselves and not necessarily what is best for the kids. If she is not careful, she will end up with someone the folks like, but not one that is best for her.
: This is a tough one. Is she is a commuter or reslident of the school? If she is a commuter, it is a good bet her folks are "grilling" her and looking for independence which they don't like.
: You sound like someone who cares, and I hope you can at least find a way to talk with her.
: Good luck! Nick
