Dear Dish-It: My Mom Hates My BF

Dear Dish-It,

If my boyfriend is acting weird because my mom don't like him and he knows it, what should I do!!

Dear worried,

If you think your mom isn't giving your boyfriend a fair chance, why don't you try and set something up so the three of you can spend some more time together, getting to know each other better? If that's just not possible, you can at least try talking to your mom and communicating to her (in a calm way) why she should be more open-minded about the guy you're seeing and why you feel he's really a great person.

Your other option is to listen to your mom. Parents usually want the best for their kids, so maybe your mom has some legit concerns about the guy you are dating that you need to be aware of. Ask her why she doesn't like him and see if any of the things she says seem true - she may be trying to protect you from getting hurt, in which case you should take her advice!

Okay, I've NEVER posted anything about my friends before, so bear with me. I've known that me and my BFF have the same crush since we met in 5th grade. But it always seems that my BFF is closer to him than I'll ever be. They went to 2 school dances together while I'm still in the friend zone with my crush. I pretend to not care but I really do care. I've never been in this situation before and don't know what to do about it. Should I tell my BFF how I feel or wait this whole thing out? Or even forget my crush being my crush and find a new crush? HELP!!!!!   :love :confused

Maybe that's the only line that needs to be said? You don't have to write down a whole paragraph explaining about how you feel. Sometimes, one word or one sentence can be enough. :p but I don't know. Maybe I have no clue what I'm talking about. :p

You'll have to remember, your parents love you, with that being said. If you feel like you can talk to them and they're reasonable, go ahead. But if you feel like waiting it's up to you. I think your family will support you, because they do love you. Maybe they'll be upset at first, but they'll come around, everyone does eventually. Is there anyone in your family that knows, like a cousin? Maybe you can ask for their opinion if you should tell your parents, and family. However, it's up to you. and remember, your parents care and love you.

You doesnt have to come out to your family until your ready and until they is ready too.  If you blurt it out it could be the shock.  You says that you think your Mums side of the family will be more supportive.  Has you got an Aunty or Uncle what you could discuss this with?  An adult member of your family what is most likely supportive  could probably give the best advises on how to tell your family and when and how and prepares you for how they will react. Good luck mate and takes your time :angel

I think my mothers side of the family would be fine with it. It's my dad's side I'm most concerned about. My dad says some dreadfully terrible remarks about homosexual people. I think I'm not gunna tell him at all. Ever...  Either way. Thanks for the advice!
