Boyfriend's Mother
Nov 24, 2012
My boyfriend and I have been together for four months now. I know that is a kind of short time, but we had been best friends for a few months before that. We have helped each other through break ups and found our way to each other.

In all honesty, we met a year ago and had a little bit of a thing then, but I had commitment issues and a few weeks in, bailed on him. I had met his mother then and she seemed to like me. I can perfectly understand her disliking me for that. However, she has a whole bunch of reasons for not liking me now, that are coming from the source of someone who dislikes me. She listens to everything this person says because it is her best friend. To her, I am an unambitious, bossy, insensitive, gold digging, ****. None of which I am. She knows that I am graduating from college earlier with the intent to go on for professional degrees. I ask her son to do things for me, but I don't ever tell him to (he is just a nice guy and helps me out when I need him to). I am probably one of the most caring people in that I want everyone else's happiness before mine, including her sons. He will be making more money than I will in the future, but right now we are both just college students, if I was a gold digger wouldn't I be going for someone with the money now? And I have discussed with her my past history and she conceded that she was wrong about me in that respect, but now is back to that opinion.

I have no clue what to do to get her to like me. My boyfriend is getting more and more frustrated with her due to the way she is treating me. He wants to know why she feels the way she does, but she doesn't ever actually talk to him about him and I. He lives with his parents and siblings, and I used to enjoy going over there to hang out, but now I just feel very uncomfortable and unwanted. She has even made comments about me being over right in front of me. It is a very hurtful situation because of the way that she acts.

I love my boyfriend very much, and even though it has only been four months, I can see he and I having a future together. By the way I am 20 and he is 23. What can I do to address the situation?
