I find it hard to enjoy talking to her. Every time I have a conversation with her, all she talks about is nonsensical crap.
I'm serious. I was talking to her just now. And she was like what kind of guy do you want to date and she talked about her friend's sons who did not want to date anyone until they were really old. And they chased this girl away by making fun of her the way she dressed (?)
I have to pose the question: is what she's talking about even real or did she just make it all up? And then she goes on about what if your husband takes your money once you start working? Then...uh...he would not be my boyfriend? WTF?
And then she rants about short men. I mean how lookist can you get? She says she can't imagine marrying someone who was shorter than her. And I replied, it never crossed my mind that height was a problem.
As you can see, I don't enjoy talking to my mother.
Thanks for sharing, but I've never met your mother.
Just change the subject and talk about the weather or Dancing with the Stars
Clearly, it's genetic, OP.
Well, OP, it does sound like your mother accepts you being gay and wants a good boyfriend for you. Many of us don't have that.
Change the subject and talk about the Royal Family, and the new eventual heir to the throne. Now you know why Americans follow Royalty. It gives them something to talk about besides the weather.
Some older women will always have romance fantasies about others. It's part of wanting others to have a happier life than they did. Note the frau threads on young, gay male celebs and how cute they look with their girlfriends. Now wouldn't you rather focus on the new Royal and his name?
I just tune my mother out.
She goes on and on and on and I just want to say "get to the point". But I don't ever say it, because if I do, she'll get angry and I'll have a physical reaction like I am somehow going to be smacked right thru the freaking phone.
There are specific topics she *knows* I do not like to discus: ie, bowel movements, gas, urine. So of course she needs to work them into every. single. conversation. For example:
Me: I saw an indigo bunting
Mom: Did it poop, every time I fill the the birdbath the first thing the robins do is get in there and poop....on and on
Me: How is my niece?
Mom: She had to have her urethra widened because she was peeing the bed and your sisters when they were little....on and on
Me: How are you?
Mom: A. Constipated B. Have diarrhea C. Peed my pants the other day.........
Me: Want some juice/vegetables/pork/etc
Mom: They give my gas, I was farting.....on and on
If I have to be in the car with her for any extended period of time, I need to take a Xanax first.
(Of course I have been diagnosed with PTSD stemming from my childhood.)
lol, R6. very realistic!
OP why do you lump all mothers in with your own? Mine is perfectly capable of having a normal conversation.
Your post was pretty nonsensical by the way, so I guess the apple doesn't fall to far from the tree.
LOL R6 -- you should take this on the road as stand up.
OP, you need to educate her on the things that matter to you: water-based vs. oil based lube, collecting used underwear, stretching your hole to accommodate double penetration, and meth. Moms are glad to converse if they know that the topics mean so much to their baby.
I wish my mom were still alive so I could listen to her nonsensical crap. Appreciate your mom while you have her, OP. She won't be around forever.
