    my mum is on facebook and she reads like my status's sometimes (she thinks i don't know) so when i got a new bf and my status changed to *in a relationship with. . . .* i was just waiting for her to come to me and ask who he was :p:

    My mum has facebook - we're not 'friends' on it though.

    But anyway, OP just try the whole name dropping thing. I've never really felt comfortable discussing these things with my parents but they always seem to find out somehow. My dad is worst though - If I say "My friend {insert male name here} said such and such..." my dad's reply is always something along the lines of "Oh, your friend " :rolleyes:

    I have never discussed boyfriends with my mum before EVER because I had this whole obsession with secrecy when I was a teenager but since I've met someone I really like at uni and it could potentially be serious, I want to tell her but how do I?! I can't just say 'oh mum by the way, I have a boyfriend!' because this would be really strange for me!
    IT may be that you would just have to bite the bullet, so to speek, but as a possible alternative, do you email your mum? Perhaps you could drop in into an email?

    Mums usually just figure it out by themselves. When they hear you talking on the phone late at night, going out more, smiling for no reason

    As for facebook... My mother can hardly turn on the computer, internet is way too big of a deal for her

    Name-dropping works, I did that :P Because he was already my best friend and I'd been in denial for like a year...it would've been weird...

    Why would people hide the fact they have a partner or find it embarrassing? :confused:

    Am I missing something here?

    My Nan (74) has facebook. My Mum doesn't.
    My Nan, whose age I don't actually remember, has MSN, that always scares me! She seriously can't have many contacts...she claims its something to do with emailing...

    I think name dropping is the way to go! Subtle hints, she will get it eventually

    name-dropping sure worked for me, seeing as my mom eventually accepted things as they were.. I couldn't just tell her
