My mom told me the guy I’m seeing is “too hot” for me and she’s “positive” he’s seeing many woman because I’m “too fat” to score him
She told me this about a week ago and it’s been eating away at me every day. Like not in the sense that I believe what she’s saying but because she said it.
Who in the world speaks to their child like that?!
For reference though, I’m 26yo and I have put on some weight since quarantine and haven’t really tried to lose any of it.
The guy I’m seeing is 34 and very fit. He’s actually my ex from many years ago and we rekindled almost a year ago. I never talk to my mom about my dating life for this exact reason.
Ever since I was a kid she body shamed me and would tell me how she wouldn’t want to be seen with me because I embarrassed her.
She’s always told me I’m not a real girl, and I’m not a pretty one and she only will claim her pretty daughters.
Last week she was throwing low blows at me saying I don’t date, I’m going to die alone if I don’t find someone to date, and that I need to hit the treadmill so I can find a husband.
I told her there was no need because I’m already seeing someone. She didn’t believe me so I showed her his pics and she REALLY didn’t believe me after that. She told me I’m either lying or that he’s just using me and has 7 other pretty girlfriends who aren’t fat like me.
I wanted so bad to just break down when she said that but instead I just walked away from her. I guess I really just came here to vent but holy crap I’ve been feeling so down about this lately.
