Untamed Heart Posted December 11, 2016 Share Posted December 11, 2016 I've heard it from a few strangers, who usually say the good old 'you haven't met the right person' line (OK, I can't discount the possibility 100%, but right now I don't really want to meet anyone). I haven't had anyone be really rude or aggressive about it, though. My mum hasn't said it in those terms, either, but she has hinted now and again about thinking it would be nice for me to find someone to settle down with. I have told her I'd prefer to be single. There was a guy I hung out with for a year or so (I did 'like' him, but it wasn't exactly dating), and mum tried to guilt me into carry on seeing him when I said I was fed up of him, because he was treating me like crap (I could write a novel about that, but what killed it for me was stuff like him always wanting me to ferry him to the pub - even when I felt sick - so he could get drunk, when he knew there were alcoholics in my family and that I was fed up of seeing that shit all the time, plus a fuckton of other red flags). She also got angry when I let my boyfriend go earlier this year, saying stuff like I was making a rash decision and my best friend was making me do it (??), when she A) was also good friends with him and B) has a stable, long term boyfriend, and also C) the main person I was actually talking about my feelings with was my boss! OK, I had told my mum I still liked him, but I was hiding my real (non) feelings out of blatant confusion and fear - if I'd told her the truth she'd have been angry anyway, and would have asked why I was with him.
