musiclover23 Posted February 27, 2017 Share Posted February 27, 2017 My boyfriend and I have a one, almost 2 year age difference. We have known each other for two years. We met in band, and he became my best friend, he and I did track together, in which we became really close. And the summer after he graduated, we hung out a lot. And we decided to wait a few months before anything just to make sure we still wanted things between us. I made the first move to ask him out. His family however, is kinda different. His parents are very judgmental people, who are quick to assume things. When we first hung-out they had zero trust in him. And even though he is 18, they treat him as though he's a little child. When we began dating, I was optimistic and was hoping they'd be a little more open, and optimistic as well about the idea of him dating someone almost 2 years younger. However, when he asked them to meet me, he was given a very crude, and nasty response. I take standing up for myself very seriously. And I messaged his mother, saying how I was hoping to meet her, to get to know her, because I know she is probably a really great person. However she called me some nasty things, and said some things that were very, very disrespectful. I said, I understood where she was coming from. However she doesn't know me, and she's already decided that she hates me, and that I'm all these things, which I'm far from. Is staying the wrong thing? I don't want to lose him because of his family. His family doesn't dictate my feelings towards him, but is it worth putting myself through the emotional stress, of trying to forget about this women and pretends to know me when she has only seen a few pictures of me. I can't lose someone that means this much to me. I just don't know if his mother is going to interfere with my relationship with him. Link to comment
