Can you still see this person if you remove a restraining order?

My parents put the order on him. I want to drop it when I turn 18 and see him again.

There are several types of protective orders, none of which are issued for no reason, and all of which are specific to the situation. Your desire to "drop it" has nothing to do with it. Your parents are trying to protect you. You might give that some thought.

As a general rule, domestic relations restraining orders either have an expiration date built into them or are limited by general laws or rules to particular lengths of time. If time hasn't expired, you might be able to intervene and seek dissolution of the order when you come of age.

There are different kinds of protective orders, none of which can be put in place without good reason. It is not up to you whether it is "dropped." Consider your parents' concern. You might get some counseling.
