Dating dilemma: Nobody likes your mate

My new beau (I know, I’m shocked too) has invited me to attend a wedding that will have loads of his relatives. I’m not all that worried because I’m something like a Mom Whisperer. Mothers love me with their sons, what can I say? It’s a blessing and a curse.

I thought about the men (uhh the one guy) that my parents met and how awful I felt when things didn’t go that well. Dad thought he looked like an inmate because he had a scar on his face. My Father, the comedian still jokingly asks me “What ever happened to Scarface?

I digress. The point is, it can be problematic when your new relationship is tested by disapproval of family or friends. If you are from a close knit family, you are forced to become a mediator. You feel stuck in the middle and you never want to choose between the two. The question is, should you have to?

What happens when nobody likes your mate? How do you handle it when everyone around you has negative things to say about your relationship?

Should you take heed and pay attention? Do you think what they say is true, “Love is blind” and you have to listen to the opinions of others?

Have you ever dated someone that caused a serious challenge in your other relationships?

You know when older, much older women do that pelvic thrust dance, well, older men have a similar one that makes you sit in the corner saying “awwww, bless his little heart.”

I know, I know way too many commas…

Ut oh…..in this movie there are identical twins…one good one evil and both in love with the same girl. Well the evil brother just made mad intense love with the girl whereas she thought to be making love with the brother. He said I love you and she said I love you too, (other brother’s name) and he’s is NOT a happy camper. Not sure why he’s mad, he went in pretending to be the other brother. He’s a nut job

He’s mad because he wants what his brother has and when he actuallys fools someone, he’s mad because he’s an IDIOT! Why get mad if your plan is working?

Single and Happy you’re fifty right? You’re just now asking about sunblock? You mentioned the other day getting your tan. You’ve been tanning all this time with no sunblock? I personally don’t use it because I’m not sunbathing but I don’t know. I only buy sunblock when heading out for vacation and I just buy whatever someone tells me to buy
