Mother trying to get me to date someone.
Recently, a good lady friend I went to high school with (went to prom and WPA - Women Pay All as friends) reentered into my life. This is one of those girls who like one of the guys. She enjoys sports (we go to ballgames every once in a while) and plays them as well.
Now, she's cool, which is why I like hanging out with her but my mom has been bugging me to ask her out, that we'd make a cute couple, etc.
The thing is, I have no romantic interest in her. None. No chemistry but she's a really great friend, like one of my boys. Also, she's been back and forth with her boyfriend which her family doesn't like so my mother thinks that won't last. Plus, she has told me many times that she 'loves me like a brother' so to me, that's an obvious sign that she's not interested in me as well.
How can I tell my mother nicely that I have no interest in this gal? She refuses me to date other girls. I realize I'm in my mid-20s and should do whatever the hell I want but I love my family too much to ignore them.
What's Your Opinion?
