DAE feel really pressured by their parents to find someone, anyone? (self.ForeverAlone)
submitted 1 year ago by DerpyGrooves
My younger brother just recently proposed to his girlfriend, and my folks have really been putting the thumbscrews on to find me a girlfriend. I haven't dated in years.

My mom constantly tries to set me up with her friend's daughters
[–]patchkit 2 points3 points4 points 1 year ago
Is there a reason you don't go for it? I would love an opportunity to meet some people. I seem to be a rarity around here in that I do occasionally have a date. It just never sticks. One of them has to eventually...
[–]mikethepwnstar 1 point2 points3 points 1 year ago
only because that just would be weird to me :s
[–]vaustin89 6 points7 points8 points 1 year ago
Well I guess my parents just gave up. They pressured me a lot of time when I was in Highschool up to college, then I constantly tell them, "how could I ever get a girl when I can't even make friends?".

My mom keeps dropping subtle hints that she'd be OK if one of her children was gay.
I'm not gay. I'm just foreveralone.

I just graduated from college and have been in a bit of a rut since I moved back home.
My parents keep saying they don't care what I do, just that I'm happy and am doing something. However, on more than one occasion my dad has mentioned getting married and starting a family would be a perfectly acceptable option. I just turned 22 two weeks ago. My parents are also very on top of my brother and whether or not he's dating (hasn't had too much interest in girls in the past, very picky) and I'm afraid it's only going to get worse. We had a conversation at dinner today about my second cousins (late 20s, early 30s, all geniuses but single and kind of career-obsessed) and my parents seemed to be of the opinion that they were failures because they were alone. Sorry to rant, this has really been bugging (and kind of depressing) me lately :(
TL;DR, my parents are giving me the same shit. Had to vent because it both frustrates and depresses me :\
(apologies for any typos, on my phone)

Thanks for commenting, man.. TBH I'm a bit in the same boat. Just about out of college, just turned 22, etc...
There's nothing shameful about being single is more or less the conclusion I've come to. Still sucks, though.

Holy crap...Do you happen to be Asian?
[–]PrancingPudu 1 point2 points3 points 1 year ago
Erm no, why?
[–][deleted] 5 points6 points7 points 1 year ago
Parents dead, rest of family hates me. So no pressure...
[–]Sibzter 4 points5 points6 points 1 year ago
Yep, my mother constantly tells my that by her age she was already dating... I don't even know any girls...
[–]ForeverJabroni 2 points3 points4 points 1 year ago
My Mother was already married and had produced me by the time she was my age. I've never had a girlfriend.

My parents actually pressured me all my life to not find someone until I had a steady job and have my life fixed (which still didn't happened btw, I'm finishing my degree this year). When I was 16 they forbidden me to see a female friend that I liked (and she liked me too), I'm sure that she would have been my first girlfriend if there wasn't any interference/brainwashing involved (she once came to my house asking for me and my father told her not to do that again, ever). I'm 23 and I still haven't been in any relationship.
As long as your parents don't become extremely annoying about putting pressure on you I think it's actually a good thing, at least they don't have a medieval era mindset.
[–]TehRootPhiladelphia 1 point2 points3 points 1 year ago
Same. My parents put huge emphasis on school and work, and not socializing or dealing with females. Both of my parents still have the same attitude about college too. It's become normal, and I actually agree with it now.
[–]nononao 4 points5 points6 points 1 year ago
My parents probably think I'm a lesbian, and just want me out of the house.
[–]chelko 2 points3 points4 points 1 year ago
My mother has been doing that to me since I was thirteen and she first started to fear that I might be gay!
[–]AngryLittleEndian 2 points3 points4 points 1 year ago
No my family has never asked or pressured me into getting a gf. I always been the black sheep so I think they just chalk it up as "oh he has always been different".
My cousin just got married last year at 24, and a few relatives made some subtle comments to me. One went out of her way to tell me that she has no problem with gay people.
[–]KaiserZeroBerlin 2 points3 points4 points 1 year ago
Not sure if this is relevant, but my mother is always asking me about girls and all that, and if she hears about failure she starts making up bullshit excuses about how the girl liked me but is to shy as well as a plethora of other crap. By my understanding my mum had quite a lot of boyfriends before my dad. My dad on the other hand was the FA type himself when he was in high school, he got his first girlfriend when he was 21 and that girlfriend is now his wife and my mother. I can see my mother escalating the extremity of this in the future unfortunately.
[–]UnsightlyBastard 2 points3 points4 points 1 year ago
They used to, I think they've given up though which is good because it used to really piss me off...
[–]sampearl1 2 points3 points4 points 1 year ago
My mom likes to hint at it, she thinks i'm some kind of pimp or something. Yeah flippin right.
My parents keep telling me to do online dating. I'm ashamed to admit that I have been for years and still can't find anyone. So I just tell them that it doesn't feel right to me and blame my career for not allowing me to meet a lot of women.
[–]Massive_Unit 2 points3 points4 points 1 year ago
My parents know I'm kind of a quiet loser so not really...
[–]taylorm6707City 1 point2 points3 points 1 year ago
My mom hasn't surprisingly.
[–]PurpleZoombini 1 point2 points3 points 1 year ago
I don't talk to my parents enough for them to pressure me into anything.
[–]disposableacc12 1 point2 points3 points 1 year ago
My mother drops hints from time to time that it would be cool if I met someone, but noone in my family got married before 30. So there's that.
[–][deleted] 1 point2 points3 points 1 year ago
My folks ask me about girls all the time. They don't know that the guy I live/argue/fight with isn't technically a roommate.
