    I made a thread earlier about a horrible problem I was going through with my boyfriend because of the lack of manners he was being taught at home (his mum did things like leaving underwear on the washing line and ashtrays in the kitchen). I brought it up with him earlier on the phone, and was quite direct, just saying 'I just need to know that you're not going to turn out anything like her, because if you are then we can just end it now'. We had a massive argument though because he said I was insulting her. That was not true, I was just saying I felt she was ill-mannered. He hung up on me anyway, and hasn't responded to various texts. I feel like I'm in a dead-end relationship at times, as evidenced by tonight, and know that I could get a much better looking guy (and probably one with a more bloody classy mother :mad:).

    How would you approach this?

    1. You're not dating his mum; if he's worth dating you'll deal with his mother
    2. Ash trays are better than not using an ash tray
    3. What's wrong with leaving underwear on a washing line?
    4. I would not date you if you insulted my mum for no good reason
    5. If you think you can get a 'much better looking guy' why don't you do just that?

    How the hell is having underwear on a washing line and having ashtrays in the house "ill-mannered"? You sound ridiculous.

    Glad I'm not the only person confused about this underwear thing. But if you're saying you could get a "much better looking guy", it sounds like you don't value him very much anway.

    I don't really know where you are coming from, love, him mums sounds pretty normal to me and i would have gone ******* if you insulted my mum like that. I don't get on with my boyfriends mum, but none of my reasons are so petty. Other that that she is completely tolerable person. His dad is another story.
