How do i tell my dad
My bf and i are getting engaged soon. We broke up 7 months ago....but have been back together for almost 5 months.

The problem is, my dad thinks ive been single single since the break-up.

Before we get engaged, i HAVE to tell my dad we are back together.

I am so nervous. I do not know what to say, where to start.....
My dad used to hate my bf. I am afraid he will reject me and never speak to me again if i tell him. (as he has done this before)

I dont wana loose my dad, but I am happy

Start at the beginning, and stop when you gert to the end. He may want, understandably, to know why you didn't tell him earlier, so have a simple and calm explanation for that.
Good luck with the session ; and do come back to the forum tomorrow and let us know how it goes. Maybe he'll surprise you and take it well ?
