Well my parents are not crazy about him. Since I live at home i feel like i am burdening them when I ask if he can stay and hang out with me. As soon as my mother hears his name she quickly stiffens up and becomes a complete bitch n hag of a time. She says hes not well mannered.
Okay so yea I get it. he CAN be a little obnoxious at times and overly friendly. For example on the first date at dinner he put his arm around me. He watched movies with me at my dorm after and it was like 2 am. He asked if he could spend the night and I said ummm no. But he ended up staying anyway. Nothing happen that night believe it or not and he took me out to breakfast the next day. Since then we have been inseparable. He is a blast to be around and spontaneous. He can make any boring moment into a fun moment. I understand my mother may have my best interest at heart but I just wish she understood she raised a pretty level headed daughter who has had her share of assholes and knows a good guy when she has one. I am not lying when I say this boy has done everything and will do close to anything to keep me happy and by his side.
I was trying to weight out the pros and cons on this situation. I love my family and my boyfriend as well. But my family will always come first. I was at the point where I felt "Bad" that I was happy with my boyfriend. Almost like a guilt trip I suppose. My mother has even told me she has no interest in getting to know him. Please tell me how mature that is. However, fuck I have been depressed for four years over my ex boyfriend use to be love of my life and now i am finally happy. Should'nt that be all that matters? Well I was about to end it with my boyfriend. Not through any fault of his own because he has been wonderful lately. But only because I wanted things to be okay between my mother and I. And then in the midst of bawling over what I was doing, I realized how stupid it was. I am not in any way wanting to let go yet. There's no reason to. Yea things are not easy or served to us on a silver platter but those moments we do get together are like nothing I've experienced recently. So he talked me out of it by telling me how he is willing to do whatever is necessary for us to work. He even got me laughing by the end of our otherwise despondent conversation. The boy deserves a chance.
I really hope my parents come around one day because this boy... he is what keeps me sane while being at home in their ever loving nagging presence.
