This guy and i have been seeing each other everyday, except for today. Earlier today my mum asked me this question which I thought was kind of weird knowing i only know him for a very short period of time
mum: "who is this guy you've been seeing?" me: "you know who he is" mum: "yes but what are you guys?" me; "idk mum. We've only known each other for what? Less than a week. I don't know what are we. Right now we're just two people enjoying each other company" mum: "what if you fall in love with him?"
i didn't answer that question of hers cause i never really think about it that far yet. All i know now is that i like this guy and i really enjoy his company. I like to just go with the flow and see what happens and not think about these things too much.
Is it weird that my mum asked me that question? Is it too soon for her to asked me it?
i think she's afraid that I'll really like this guy and get my heart broken knowing that he's a foreigner. But its just too soon for her to be asking me stuffs like these dont you think?
People usually project their own faults and insecurities onto you. If your at college studying she probably means if you fall in love it'll distract you from your future. She probably made the same or similar mistake with a man when she was younger and is trying to avoid you doing the same. Parents get a consensus about kids. The more you try and tell your kid to avoid something the more likely they will do it to spite you. Human nature. Maybe that's why she's so vague about what she means.
Your mum is doing nothing than, paying an interest in what your doing. She is simply asking you questions about a guy. You are her daughter, and she is just interested what you are doing, and maybe if you fallen for some guy.
Nothing weird about it all, whether its too early or late. Parents worry and are interested in their children lives.
Don't read into things, just take them at face value. People are either just being nosy or being curious about your life. As for parents, they will always be nosy and curious about their kids.
Seems your mum is very protective of you. The question is obviously too soon, but not weird. Mums like to know what is going on with their offspring. I suspect most mums are holding back most of the time, trying not to seem to anxious or not to seem to pry. You have to allow for the occasional question to escape early. It is must mum being your mum.
i think your mom is just looking out for you. she might of just been making conversation and wanted to know more about what you think about this guy. your mom is just trying to be nice and dosent want you to get hurt. i would just forget about it and move on. hope this helps
I don't think it's weird at all, your mom is just curious. Even you yourself start by saying 'I've been seeing this guy everyday' only to later add 'it's only been a week', which leads to very different conclusions.
Your mom probably didn't know how long you've been seing each other, and people these days are very quick to jump into relationships. Anyway, I don't think it's an odd question at all, maybe just a misunderstanding.
Your mother must be prone to anxiety sometimes? Are you the youngest or the only daughter in the family? It's lovely she cares but watch that she does not try to control your life. Some parents have a hard time letting us grow up.
