Black Sesame Posted December 19, 2020 Share Posted December 19, 2020 (edited) Recently I've been feeling my family's (especially my father's) expectations regarding my dating life, which ideally is supposed to lead to the birth of grandchildren, getting stronger. I'm 26 y.o. and I guess my family is getting worried, because others are starting families of their own and I have yet to even introduce someone to them. Just a few weeks ago I randomly used a guy from university as a reference, when talking about my courses (don't even really know the guy) and now my family is always asking about him as if I had a crush on him, bc. why else would I have talked so enthusiastically about a guy for like 10 seconds. *A(g)ro me really wants to flip the table on that* Every time I look at a guy on tv for a few moments longer, they're like "Is that your type?" I was just wondering about Aquaman running around with wet hair all the time, alright? *flips table again* ... It's a sign how starved my family is for learning about my (non existant) dating life ... "We just want to know your prey pattern ("Beuteschema")" my Dad says, but firstly, "prey pattern" sounds really weird (putting it nicely), secondly there is none, and thirdly, even if there were, why would I tell them? Sorry for making this so long and ranting like that, but it just makes me feel kinda frustrated sometimes. I can tell that my Dad is really looking forward to me bringing home a boyfriend. That's unlikely to happen, like ever, but I just can't burst the bubble either, because he wouldn't understand. I know that I have no obligation to fulfill their expectations, but it still troubles me. How are you guys dealing with things like that or is that even a concern of yours?
