are my parents rushing me? - July 2nd 2010, 06:07 AM

i went over to my friends house and he told me that he over heard his mother talking to my mother. my mother is starting to think that i am gay. i am not. i have had a "crush" on this girl for about 3 years. at the end of the second year, she liked me back but i didnt do anything about it and i lost. my dad, is trying to get me to go to these lake concerts so i can meet some girls. i did go to this pary and i was talking to this one girl but it didnt go as much as my parents would hope. i dont text/ i.m. people becuase im not online enough to im. im also not a big texter. do you think my parents are asking too much of me? maybe rushing me? i also am not too comfortable telling my parents that i liked her becuase my mom askes way to many questions and my dad is always on my back and it might get awkward with him.

Do you feel like your parents are rushing you?

If so, then yes! They are!

Writing a letter to your parents about this and reading to them is a great way to get it off your chest. Just telling them you don't want a relation, or you're looking for the right on, should be enough for them to leave you alone!

But only YOU can depict if they're rushing it or not.

Feel free to pm me if you want any further help!

There is absolutely nothing wrong with not being in a relationship with someone, I didn't get into any kind of relationship until just before I turned 17. My big cousin is 26 (I think ) and he's never had a girlfriend. I think it's an adult thing since my grandfather thought he was gay too. If you feel pressured to find a girlfriend then chances are you'll end up in a relationship with a girl you don't really like, just to appease your parents and that's not fair on you or the girl.
If you feel you're being pressured then sit down with your parents, or talk to your dad if he tries to take you to a concert or whatever and just tell them that you are straight and you have had interests in girls. It's not their place to try and force you into finding someone if you're not ready.
Good luck with it, I hope things get better for you
