Here's what you should do if your parents can't help meddling in your love life!
There's no doubt that we love our parents. But we can admit that they can sometimes be a bit insufferable, especially when it comes to our love lives. Even though it's incredibly sweet that our parents are so invested in making sure that we find love and settle down with the right person, the pressure can end up becoming super intense. To be honest, having them constantly cross the line is just plain frustrating. Just because we're single doesn't mean that we aren't actively looking (or that we need the help). Now, convincing our mothers that we're happy with our lives (not to mention saying that without it coming across in a really negative way) is the hard part.
When Dr. Karin Anderson mentions ways to deal when our parents' concern for our love lives goes overboard (especially our mothers), we definitely couldn't agree more. For starters, it doesn't hurt to know that our mothers don't mean to bug us about being single; that's just their way of showing how much they care about us. That's why it's so important that we let them know that we are really happy with our lives right now, even if they seem a bit skeptical at first. Reminding our mothers that they taught us well and that we won't settle for less than we deserve is a step in the right direction.
