Does anyone else have an awkward relationship with their parents? Watch

    My dad gets irritated easily and is quite defensive, whilst my mother isn't the greatest at making conversation. We're not close, which leads me to be unable to talk to them about personal things - it's just too uncomfortable. It's also tense when my boyfriend comes to stay with us (LDR), as they've hinted in the past that they don't approve of the whole thing. We're constantly on edge whenever my parents are in the house, as they overreact at the slightest 'inappropriate' things we do (like me laying on his airbed whilst he was in the shower lol).

    Does anyone else not like/not feel comfortable living with their parents?

    Your dad sounds like mine. Over the years he has mellowed a little, but on the whole it's still very difficult to predict whether he's in a good mood or a bad mood on any given day. My mum is pretty judgemental. I don't think she means to be (it's probably just how she was brought up) but I'm not close to either of my parents either. Can imagine my situation will be awkward when I get a boyfriend.
    Glad I moved out to go to uni. Are you at an age where you could do the same maybe?

    Hopefully will be going to uni next year, don't know how I'm going to cope with another year at home tbh. Did you find that moving out helped to improve your relationship with them at all? I'm hoping that once I live far far away that we'll learn to appreciate eachother better
