When Your Parents Don’t Like Your Boyfriend or Girlfriend

They always say that mother (or father) knows best, but does that include your choice of boyfriend or girlfriend? You they have a right to meddle with your love life, or you need to listen to their opinion about their impression towards your partner. Let’s evaluate your situation…

Ask your parents why they don’t like your boyfriend or girlfriend – Of course, they do not have a negative impression towards a person for no reason. Ask your parents politely on why they do not like your partner. Their complaints may range between the obvious physical (she’s older than you) to how he or she behaves (he’s too clingy).

Ask your friends – Talk to your closest friends and ask for their opinion about your boyfriend or girlfriend. Do not argue with them and instead listen to what they would say. Surely they have an opinion as well, and if it is similar to those of your parents, then there is a problem with your partner.

Evaluate the problem – Gather the information you have received and evaluate whether or not to continue the relationship based on what they think. If your boyfriend is perceived as too shy, maybe he needs more time to get to know the people around you. If the girlfriend disrespects your parents, you probably need to dump her. In the end, it is you who is to decide whether to continue with the relationship or not.

Evaluate your relationship – You need to determine why you like him or her in the first place. Was it a case of first love? Were you forced by peers to be in a relationship? Do you feel that you have to have a boyfriend to "fit in"? Was it purely sexual or do you see yourself getting married with him or her? You can use this "reason" to evaluate whether to go on with the relationship.

Evaluate his or her attitude towards you – Does your boyfriend treat you with utmost respect or he considers you as "his slut"? Has he ever harmed you both physically and emotionally? If the answers are not on the positive side, may you need to end the relationship.
