What are you looking for?
2 months ago · · boyfriend,
So, I have a wonderful boyfriend who loves and cares for me. We've been together a year.
My family is very close. We love each other and if anyone new is going to be part of it, everyone must get along with him/her. However, my boyfriend is not good with social exchanges. He is blunt, which makes him seem rude when he means something else entirely that's not rude. Also, his family are not super close, so mine isn't something he's used to.
My mother just got done explaining to me why she's started not liking him. She says he doesn't try hard enough to get to know everyone and that she thinks I have settled for him. She has also said the same things of my sisters' past boyfriends whom they are now married to.
I love my mother. I love my family. And I love my boyfriend.
Should I tell him what she thinks of him or keep quiet about it?
This really bothers me. My boyfriend and I hate drama and do whatever we can to avoid it, but I don't like her saying stuff about him she doesn't know about.
Should I try to push my own family into doing things my boyfriend likes, try to push him into doing what they like, or just let things develop without saying/doing anything?
