Wiseman2 Posted March 12, 2018 Share Posted March 12, 2018 Unfortunately since you live at home and your mother supports you and fiances things for you you'll have to make some compromises. "Pointing out she's wrong" repeatedly is rebellious and extremely argumentative. You are shooting yourself in the foot with that. Your mother isn't the problem. You need to ask yourself if this pothead badboy would pay for your food, housing, college, car etc. You may not want your mother to dislike him, but she may not want to continue to finance your lifestyle. After 18 she can kick you out on the street and cut you off financially, she doesn't have to spoil you AND put up with your argumentativeness and rebellion. Are you prepared to live with this guy, work a full time menial job without a car or college education for your grand love and blind faith? You can do that anytime you like. Just walk out the door, you are over 18. You don't have to convince her of anything, including the perceived merits of dating this guy. I simply try to point out where she's wrong she CAN shun me and take my car away if she wanted. As for the last statement, I don't try telling her how amazing he is or anything I mostly just point out her wrongs and how she exaggerates certain things. Link to comment
