Keith Posted April 15 Share Posted April 15 I just talked with my mom about romantic relationships... 😨 She asked me who am I planning to go to prom with, so I told her I'm not sure yet, because my prom is in 3 years (😨), but I wouldn't mind going with my friends. I don't know why, but it made her genuinely so mad. She screamed at me and told me that going to prom without a date is the most humiliating experience that a highschooler can experience (which in my opinion, is the most untrue statement ever). After that she asked how come have I never been in a relationship (for the record - I've had a girlfriend once, before I realized that I'm aro, but I never told my parents about it because I was afraid they wouldn't accept me). I answered, that boys in my surrounding aren't exactly boyfriend materials and I don't want to force myself to date, or to like any of them. She didn't like my answer. In her opinion getting a boyfriend in highschool is an absolute must. I tried explaining to her, that even if it is a must for some people it's not a must for me, but she cut me off and didn't let me finish. I just don't understand why she can't accept the fact that I simply don't want to date. That it's not my priority. And even if hypothetically it'll change in the future, she can't force me to change now. 1 2 10 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
