I am 18 and Im currently a college student and I've been dating this girl for 5 months. Honestly she is the nicest, most caring, and unselfish person ever and I truly love her.
Being in college, we sometimes sleep together, and unfortunately my parents found out about this. Like any parent they were shocked and disappointed, and I admit this was a mistake. After a few months, I talked with my dad and he said he fully supported my relationship and said it was my choice to date whoever I want and suffer any consequences because I am an adult. He realized that I knew my mistake and knows that we have turned around as a couple.
On the other hand, my mom hates my girlfriend. She thinks that my girlfriend is selfish and a slut for what happened, which I understand. She fails to realize her good qualities and completely disapproves and says that I am not to date her. On top of all this my girlfriend and my mom only met once.
I respect my mom's opinion, but I think that as an adult, it should be my decision, not hers. Ever since, I think our relationship has been healthy and strong. We study together and we truly enjoy each other. My only problem is that I wish my mom would give me a second chance to show her that my girlfriend isn't what she thinks she is.
Any thoughts on what I should do? Any advice is appreciated!

I despise mothers like this. You need to shut her down. If you don't, it will lead to her getting in-between you and your girlfriend and eventually cause fights and lead to break ups. Not to mention, your girlfriend will end up hating your mom.
I dated a guy.. we were religious and went to the same church as his mother. She hated me because we lived together. I was with him for 2 1/2 years... and she got our pastor to come to OUR house (in which I was paying the bills) to tell him I wasn't a good girl. I was a virgin. I think, I was a good girl. And, later she lied and said she saw me out in a see-through top in my car. haha I don't even own a see-through top. She was so crazy she got her sister to threaten me at my work and then told everyone I was cheating on him. We loved each other VERY much. But, the crazy mother which led to crazy family, caused us to fight. And, caused problems in our relationship. I couldn't go to family outings as she was there and didn't want me. It was ridiculous. I miss him sometimes, but I am SO glad to be out of that relationship, as she was crazy and it was too stressful.0
