Super strict mum re: datingWatch
I'm 19 and in my first year of college but I still live at home. I've met a really nice (21 year old) guy and we're secretly dating, but I'm so scared to tell my mum. She never once had the talk with me, and acts like birth control and sex and all that doesn't exist, but I plucked up my courage and asked her a couple weeks ago what the minimum age is to date (according to her) and she said 25. She 100% wasn't joking - she said it's not a good idea to date or move out before then because you're only mature enough to do those things once you're 25. I tried to go out with a guy (and tell her that he was just my friend) a few months ago and she got so angry and would hardly talk to me for a week. How do I tell her that this new guy is my actual boyfriend and we've been dating for 2 months behind her back?? Ta...
Yes I live only with her. My dad passed, and siblings are almost 10 years older than me and have moved out.
In practical terms, invite your BF over more frequently, be natural and don't feel the need to tell her he's your boyfriend. Just be natural and let her be used to his presence. A big hug x
