    My family has always believed that you need to laugh at yourself. I hate it. They have always made fun of me, but they never stop. When I told my mom about my boyfriend, she told a lot of people. My boyfriend's name is Felipe and I think he has a very unique and special name. My family clearly thinks otherwise. I need help, how do I deal with this? It is really embarrassing. Please help!

    Not going to lie, I chuckled at his name too. Just don't get too bogged into the jokes that your parents make.

    tell them to politely **** off and if they keep on doing it just act as if your not bothered and they will stop , personally i think that theyre being immature basically don't give them the reaction they want just laugh it off eventually they will stop

    Seems normal to me - families love to tease and joke together. Its a sign of closeness that you can be teased and be vulnerable in front of someone.

    I would hate it, if I my family had to walk on egg shells around me, worrying if their jokes are going to upset me.

    The advice above, to tell your family to **** off.. is just immature teenage nonsense. They are your family - the chances are that will be with you, loving you and caring fro you - far far longer then your current boyfriend will be around. (unless your in your mid-late 20s)
