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?

Celisea I haven’t been tanning to get a tan, it just happens but last year is the first time that I actually burned. I think my cousin jinxed me, cause she told me to get some sun block and I told her black folks don’t burn

Ut oh….he’s got a gun now. He started choking her and screaming I love you. She knocked him over the head and got away…now he’s caught her again but this time he has a gun. She’s saying what he wants to hear now.

If so, he may have the mindset some women have…if he impregnates her she’ll stay (after finding out the truth).

Single and Happy – Oh, okay…

Leggs – End of that…he shot her. The real meaning of I love you to death.

Leggs – Yes, she’s dead. She was trying everything and he was agreeing with her (in all her sweet nothings) but he shot her anyway. Right now he’s visiting his dad and his dad is telling him somehow killing his mom was an accident but he knows better. The dad is aged and living in a retirement home.

Okay I’m going to need to watch this all over again. I fell asleep for a few minutes and apparently I missed some important stuff. He’s recalling some of the deeds in his life and he’s now talking (or thinks he’s talking) to his brother.

Ohhhh snap, there isn’t a twin brother. He conjured him up…ohhh snap

Danggit – He killed himself…at the voice of the other person. Okay I’m soooo confused now. Shelly was making love to him thinking it was the other brother but when he went to look at his birth certificate it only showed one birth. His dad told him to go look at the birth certificate. The imaginery brother dared him and he killed himself.

Okaaaay, I’m going to have to watch this all over again.

Single and Happy and Leggs – I’ve probably mislead y’all…lol I’m totally confused. But yes, he’s dead. All the other stuff I can’t concretely answer until I play it over. Yes, I apparently missed a lot while I napped.

Glad you took that in stride.

Thanks everyone for letting these last 30 mins fly by. Have a Happy 4th and do something good for a stranger. Buy them a soda, burger, something. Don’t mean to imply all strangers are homeless, but you get my drift!
