Hi everybody,

I'm a 20 year old girl and my mother doesn't like it if i meet up with my friends once every few weeks. Why on earth would this be?? Is she jealous or something?? Surely she must be jealous, because why else would any mother have that kind of weird attitude???????????? Oh my mum is 60 by the way. Perhaps it's because she's past her prime?

Ask her? Maybe she is worried about you going out or doesn't like your friends.

She's clearly being protective over you. You say you're 20 but don't seem 20 by the way you write.. Could be an indication as to why she's so protective..

She probably just cares for you and her being 60 , she wants you to be by her side in her 60's and 70's?

No, because if i approached the subject, she would just deny it and say ''i haven't got anything to be jealous of, I don't know what you're talking about''

Then do not start by accusing her of being jealous in the first place.

Ask her why she does not like it when you go out with your friends every few weeks without assuming things.

However, to be sincere, I can already see why she is so reluctant to let you go out. Based purely on the way you write and on what you write, you seem rather immature and childish in thinking for your age (honestly thinking she is jealous? Seriously?). I would have guessed you are 13-15 (16 at best) based on how you write and think. Of course, do not take offence since I know that might be false; I am just pointing out how your writing sounds like.

Do you even have any reason to believe she is jealous? Why would she be jealous?

Either way, talk to her.

Well to be honest, I can't think why else she would act the way she does, other than the potential idea of her being envious of me?? Why would a mother not want her daughter to have a friend?

I think she is just trying to protect you, sometimes parents or even grandparents can be a little overwhelming. Try to talk to her one more time and if you get nothing out of it just forget it and move on. It's what I do
