I'm not sure what's to be gained by telling your parents, whereas you fear that the downside could be that they take away the only way you have of talking to him. It's a gamble you have to get right, and if you've not needed to take it for the last 3 years I wonder if it's worth the risk now. Without knowing your parents it's difficult to guess how they'd react....but why should they be interested in anyone you met once ....and when was that meeting anyway...years ago ? ?As to how much control you allow your parents to have over who you talk to, now that you're 20 years old....well that's for you to decide, but personally I wouldn't tolerate too much interference.

I think you should meet him once.?

We can only assume that Lorraine means 'Once more' or 'Once again'....although she doesn't give her reasons.
