This week, problems with daddy…
Father’s Day Dilemma – what do I do?
Emergency! It’s father’s day and, seeing as my boyfriend’s connection to his family is stronger than what I have with my family, he has invited me round to his parents’ place for lunch. What has been a whirlwind romance, and one that’s been getting better as each day passes, has suddenly hit the brakes, after 7 weeks of dating and some pretty damn amazing, well… you know. Earlier this week I found out that he still lives with his parents??? A 31-year-old still lives with his parents and now I am about to go to his house and have a family meal. I don’t know what to expect? Will mother be cutting his food for him? Is his bedroom that of an adult’s? He’s told me that he and his father share everything… not me they aren’t, and what’s also creeped me out is that the pet name that he has for me, is also the one that his mother calls him, Starshine.
He seemed so mature and independent but now I know why he always had to leave my house or a date at a certain time… he has a fricking curfew!? And he was telling me that he had to let his dogs out etc. Come to think of it, that’s why he’s never invited me to his place before… So, what do I do? Am I being a diva? Should I invite him over to mine more often? Do I try to coax him to leave the roost?
Help! He totally has the potential to be the one!
Right, listen up. If you really say that this guy could be be the right one for you, then why not stick it out. I’m not saying, ‘just let this problem you have with his situation slip’, but rather embrace it for now and see what comes of it. So, it sounds like this will be the first time you meet the parents, right? Well, who knows maybe you’ll warm up to them quicker than you think and you’ll understand why your fella is hanging around. But I do understand where you’re coming from, having a bloke that you’ve been batting your eyes at for 7 weeks has suddenly become a lot less independent and you’re worrying about future shenanigans. It’s all very well getting naughty on the parents’ bed when you’re in your teens, but getting hot and steamy in a room with family photos and memorabilia of past memories is going to be a massive turn off. What if the parents try to rush things along? And, whatever you do, DON’T LET THEM CONVINCE YOU TO MOVE IN AS WELL? A huge no, no! Then, there would be problems with the father and son sharing everything. Eurgh.
I say, give it go. Put on your Sunday best and see what the situation is like. It may take sometime for both parties to warm up to each other but, if you say he could be the one, don’t give up just yet.
