Time is the only way you'll know. If he continues after several months, he's for real. True romantics just keep it going.
My guess is that you're talking about a pre-teen or a teen. She's being very protective of her mother and is also concerned about you "stealing" her father. Just be patient and kind. They usually come around. Some take longer than others.
It could be that she just wants both of you to learn proper etiquette, or it could be that your manners aren't exactly great. Don't overthink it. Just go and have a good time together. BTW, people will absolutely judge you on your manners.
Denial is very strong. Unfortunately, there's not a whole lot you can do if the family is not willing to face reality. It is regrettable because they are playing Russian Roulette with his life. The two of you can try sitting down with them again.
You can explain to your bf that you do not ever want to be at any event where his cousin is present. You have the absolute right to set that boundary. You don't say if anyone else has made racist comments. It may just be this one person.
Yes, but it takes a commitment from both people to work really hard. And it will take time to trust again. If one or the other person is not fully committed, therapy is a waste of time and won't work.
When you go out with someone, you are also dating that person's family. You are going to have to talk this through with your parents.
Some people just want to take things more slowly and are much more private about their lives. Respect what she wants, and you will be much happier in the long run.
Ah, yes. Weddings!! They are supposed to be such a wonderful time. Either the two of you need to take control of what you want, or you need to tell both sets of parents to meet and figure it all out since it's creating too much stress.
You are just going to have to wait. If it's really in his nature to be romantic, his gestures will continue. Enjoy.
This is very common. She looks at it like you are stealing her father, so she's fighting you for him. Get some professional help with someone who has experience with this. It will make life much easier.
I don't know her or your circumstances, but don't assuming she's judging. It just may be that she wants others to see the two of you as classy. Think positively.
If his bro is under 18, they can commit him. If not, it complicates things. The best thing to do is contact an interventionist. That's a person who specializes in exactly what you're asking for.
Yes, but both parties have to agree to commit 100%. It takes a lot of work to rebuild the trust.
Hell hath no fury as a woman scorned. Believe it!!!!!!!!
Dude, take her word for it. She's the best judge
Yes, it's rude. You can blow it up by telling them to f o or you can just look and say absolutely nothing. That would be my choice.
If both of you are satisfied with just going 50-50, then that's good. Just talk it through. Whatever the two of you decide is the best answer. It's really no one else's business.
No, not every guy watches porn. However, adult entertainment is available to men and women. It really depends on how much he's watching. If it's just occasionally, it's probably not a big deal (unless it goes against your beliefs). If it's a bunch, he may have a porn addiction. Get some professional help to sort all this out.
Yes, perfectly normal. You are just going to have to give her time. My guess is she's a young teenager. That's when they get really pissy because, in addition to the change in family, she also has her hormones starting to swirl. Just be patient, but expect it to get worse before it gets better.
Since you've taken over the parenting job, you have to be a parent. Usually grandparents let kids get away with much more. Your granddaughter needs to know that she can't get away with things with you.
You need to create a compromise. Let her know how long you are good to shop. She can then decide how to spend her time. It's got to work for both of you, otherwise you'll get upset, and that won't help your relationship.
If he is that freaked out just from dancing, you are going to have a difficult time doing much of anything in the future without him looking over your shoulder. It's time to dump the chump! Jealousy usually doesn't go away.
This is something I deal with all the time. Basically, it has to do with childhood issues. The best thing you can do to help yourself is to get professional help. You will learn that you are actually advertising for these losers. Get help!!
Your bf does not respect you enough. This is an indication of what he will be like in your future. Some people are more modest than others, but if the lack of modesty bothers one's partner, it should stop.
