Okay so, my boyfriend and I have been talking since October, and officially started dating in December. Before me, he was in a relationship for a year and half, with a complete psycho. She was abusive, a bitch, and two faced. When we started talking, all she would do is send me rude stuff, stalk my Facebook, Instagram, and was still in contact with his mom. His mom on the other hand, didn't like me because he was out late, and wasn't always home (he's 18). She called me rude stuff, didn't want him with me, and just always complained. Now his brother has a girlfriend and she's trying to be friendly to me, invite me to do things, but I'm not comfortable at all. I'm scared that I won't be living up to their expectations of me, because of his ex. I don't feel welcomed to the family, and I don't think I ever will. What should I do?

Getting along with each other's family is ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL for the success of a LTR. Make the effort. They may have realized that their initial reaction to you was a bit unfair.0

You can't help what his mother thinks of you, but it wouldn't hurt to try and impress her a little. She's not wrong to be upset that he was out late and not home often, 18 is a legal adult but he's still dependent on her and living under her roof so he should answer to her.
His brothers girlfriend is trying to make you feel welcome and you're pushing her away why? Have you considered that maybe she feels the same as you and that she wants to have someone in a similar situation to talk to about it? It doesn't sound like you're making much of an effort.0
