kisca Posted June 26, 2017 Share Posted June 26, 2017 So... my boyfriend of 2 years told me his parents are visiting in October. They live in Europe so visiting means they are coming for 3 weeks! I've met them, they are nice people. But... as all adults they are particular and the dad is a bit of a "mans man". So he'll expect women in the kitchen which wont fly with me. But i digress... They are planning to stay with us for 3 nights, then a hotel, then want to travel all together for a few days. Hotels are super expensive where we live so they are kind of breaking it up, which i understand. The rest of the time isn't planned yet but i suspect they will stay with us more the following week. I know it's only 3 nights at first but i'm freaking out. We live in a TINY 1 bedroom apartment with an unruly cat. Naturally we'd have to give up our bedroom for his parents and my bf expects us to crash on an airbed in the living room. Look, i'm not a princess but i'm so uncomfortable by this situation. Being somewhat a traditionalist i'd maybe be ok with it if we were married and had to "make do." But i'm "just the gf" and getting displaced out of my own bed is really upsetting. Not to mention uncomfortable getting up to work and being super quiet. And i wont even be able to get in my closet so i'll have to plan what to wear in advance. Then, i'll have to probably kiss ass for the next 2-3 weeks and put up with his dad who will undoubtedly try to reverse all the amazing work i've done on my bf in teaching him to help clean in the kitchen and be a partner not a diva. Ughh... How do i get through this without a meltdown? Or better yet how do i explain to my bf how uncomfortable this situation is and ask him to talk his parents into staying at a hotel longer. I can suffer through 1 night, maybe 2... but 3 nights is really a bit much, isn't it? Thank you! J. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
