A netizen shared how she was visiting her boyfriend’s mother for Chinese New Year and the mother kept trying to set him up with the neighbour girl, in front of her.
Here is the story:
I visited my boyfriend’s family for the first time on CNY and it was so awkward. I was literally just sitting there and his mom starts talking about how the neighbor girl is single and pretty, and she was going to invite her over.
I was sitting there like…. WTF. It felt like she was trying to “put me in my place” or something and despite my boyfriend declining he was being very unassertive about it.
So I got up and headed out. Drove home to my place. And texted my boyfriend “Not here for this reality dating show drama lol. Is your mom always like this?”
He asked me where I was and I said I’d headed out, I’m not into the trashy reality TV drama vibe. He asked where and I said I was at home.
He said he didn’t want me to get up and leave just like that and I said “Come on by then!” And he felt conflicted because his family was already tense after they realized I’d left.
I said, come by or don’t, just tell me when you figure it out.
But then I drank a lotta wine, and fell asleep.
My boyfriend was texting and calling a lot when I was asleep but I missed it all. He had apparently decided to leave and spend the night with me but when I didn’t answer he ended up staying.
The next day I asked him if he sorted things out with his mom so she doesn’t go saying that crap anymore. He said he’d said he wasn’t interested when it was happening. I asked if he could have a serious talk after the fact because I was there when it was happening and I don’t think she got it.
He wasn’t sure (???) So I just made other plans because even though he’d invited me to his I wanted a good time and not to be dealing with pettiness.
My boyfriend was frustrated and it’s been an ongoing argument. I think he should have chewed out his mom for being petty and weird.
