Seymore Posted December 1, 2017 Share Posted December 1, 2017 I’m nearing 40 now, and my parents are driving me nuts. The last three girls I was in LTRs with, my parents hated. Granted, they had their reasons but those girls were special to me. My folks didn’t seem to care and were rude or mean to them, which caused a lot of issues in those relationships - things like not even speaking to them and walking away when my gfs would talk to them, to my parents banning them from family events. I never faulted them because everyone feels how they feel and I never broke up with them because of how my parents felt (moreso because the GIRL was more obsessed with how they felt, despite me still there by her side) but it was the cause of a lot of fights. Now that I’m single, my parents keep telling me “I wish you could find someone/have you tried such and such dating site” and it makes my blood boil. I want so badly to tell them that I HAD someone but they had to make it difficult, and that they have zero say in my dating life and to butt out, since no matter who I pick they have a problem with. They’ve said “you can date someone just don’t bring them home to us for a year or two” and IMO it’s insane - what girl would be fine with a guy they’ve been dating a year and won’t introduce them to his parents by that point? I meet girls I like and I think to myself “they’re never going to go for me not introducing them to my family for a year” or “when I do introduce them, my family will find something they don’t like and the girl will attack ME with them not liking her, like the others did”. I feel like I’m going to be single forever. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
