honestly I did it until we were engaged... the reason is I wanted to make sure it was real before I told everyone. I didn't just want to tell everyone and then have him be gone, they would be like... where's your boyfriend?

kind of sort of. i used to just not really tell my mother details about my social life. mostly because she was insanely judgmental. hated every girl i ever mentioned i liked (even when the entire family loved them) and was convinced that i was some sort of slut. so just to avoid the inevitable arguments and nasty words from her i would usually keep her in the dark. she'd know i had a girlfriend but i wouldn't really tell her anything beyond that about it1
