Seymore Posted July 23, 2008 Share Posted July 23, 2008 When I was single, I used to go to my parents' after work for dinner. We'd talk about the day, etc. Sometimes, we'd go for coffee after. So pretty much every night we'd go out together. I'm 29, so yeah, that's kind of weird. When I started dating my girlfriend, every night with the family became 2-3 nights a week. My girlfriend loves that I love my family, but wishes I'd pull away more and be my own person. I've been helping her move for the last week. Yesterday I told her that last night I would go to have dinner with my family and meet up with her after to help move. She was fine with that. This morning she asked what our plan was for tonight. I told her that maybe we could have dinner at my folks', since it's by where I have to pick her up from, and then we could go move more stuff. She made a comment saying "I didn't know you were going to have dinner every night with your parents still - you're going to the movies with your dad Friday, to church and brunch with your family on Sunday - you've got to let go a little". Does this sound normal or crazy? I mean, I brought it up at dinner once and my mom said that once my dad hit 25, he went to visit his parents once every other week to do laundry. They've both always told me that I need to have a life. Link to comment
