7 Ways To Deal With Your Boyfriend’s Family

When I was a kid, I was constantly hearing from my parents and every other adult about how annoying in-laws were. I always thought, what could be so bad about your significant other’s family? I wondered, could they really be that annoying? I was very skeptical of this, for some reason. I couldn’t wait to meet a guy and get a second family of my own. It sounded great!

These naive feelings lasted until I started dating a guy who had one of the most annoying families ever. Suddenly, I understood why everyone complained about their in-laws. It’s one thing to be stuck with your own sometimes annoying family, but it’s an entirely different thing to be stuck with a family that you don’t even have to be stuck to. At least your family is flesh and blood! 

Okay, so not every other family is annoying. I’m sure there are plenty of in-laws or soon-to-be in-laws out there who are perfectly lovely. But if you’re dating someone who happens to have the kind of family members that make you bite your tongue, there is help. Here are some tips on how to deal with your boyfriend’s family, from the pain in the butt little brother to the over-protective mom:

In the end, keep this in mind: you really can’t change your boyfriend’s family. They are who they are! The best thing you can do is learn how to deal with them and accept that they might sometimes annoy you. Remember: you’re dating your boyfriend, not his family. If he’s worth it, then that’s all that matters.

    Well me and my boyfriend have been dating for 2 years now. His family is very annoying from his mother calling everyday him having to explain everything that goes on in our life to her all the time. She’s so judge mental of everything. His family away want something from him . They call almost every weekend wanting you to drop everything your doing to come help them. I’m just tired of the bull I wish he would say no to them. And I’m tried of hearing his mom dog him out like he’s not a good person or father. But he’s good when he’s cashing out for them. I need help because I don’t wanna say something fucked up to them people. But I am not with that this how the family is. Why can’t I be me and say how I feel. I told him lots of time how I feel but nothing has changed. So I just avoid them till I feel better about them.

    Okay well first off they speak a totally different language and they know English but they still choose to speak the language that I don’t even understand I just feel like he needs to realize that he’s in a 3 year relationship and that it’s me and him now not him and his parents he has a new life and a totally different agenda but he’s one of those guys that you have to cut off everything as in stop having sex change your passwords so he can be curious about what’s going on in my life instead of being at home waiting on him go with your friends constantly just for him to want to spend time with you I just want him to spend time with me every day not nobody else

    My Boyfriend and I been together 2 years now . It was sort of “love at first sight”. I was in school when I met him. I went to a school out of my county so I was basically here and there to get to school.My mom and I were having issues so I decided to stay with him and sister for school . Its his sister house . Being here I haved experienced a lot . It get annoying sometimes dealing with them. So they have this thing where theytalk abour their fights. He have two sisters I meam they are good people but living with them can be difficult for me . We really dnt hve privacy like I want us to have , His sisters can get annoying when they fuss , his nieces and nephews can be grown as fuck. He have this one sister who always stare at me when I’M dress up . That makes me uncomfortable . She just stares all the time . Well both of them . I mostly be in the room so when I’M walk out its like thet just stare . Both of them are noisy. They can be very fake at times . They will text each other oreither talk about me . The kids listen so they repeat things they say . Which is wack . Their 34 and 31 and have kids . Once I got in an agurment with his sister because she claim I got smart with her . I can just go on and on about this . Its like at times he can get rude in front of them . Then they always claim they can fight so good and their so tough . And he sometimes threaten me to go get them to fight me . He sometimes get loud just so they can hear them. Its no “strings attach ” so I already know their on his team . It was one time we were tussling at a party and his sisters and this girl they call sister broke it up. And they were saying shit like “if she wanna go let her go” “more females in the world ” ” you better get in the car before I get mad ” like shut the hell up . One of his sisters even told him “he better hope I’m worth it ” … Now he works nights so he sleeps all day. But I understand he tired but I have “My Needs” .I’m just so fed up . He tells them everything where he going , make , etc . Im just tired of feeling like I’m dating them all . Please give advice !
