Unhappy Problem with Boyfriend's family

I'm not sure what to do in this situation....... My bf and I have been living together for a few months now and so far it's been truly wonderful. But there's one single, agonizing problem - his family. I don't like them AT ALL. What on earth do I do? Everytime any one of them comes over to our house, well....I go for a walk or lock myself in the bedroom until they're gone. That's bad, but I can't help it. I just can't. I don't like any of them. It's like they were dropped on their heads at childbirth or something. My bf seems to be the only one who inherited any smart genes. The rest of them, dear God....

You don"t have to like them. What you have to do is respect them and your BF. Locking yourself in a room is immature. To get a relationship to the next level, both of you need to deal with each other"s family, work, friends........

Re: Problem with Boyfriend's family

Can you give us some more information? What exactly do they do? Do they disapprove of you, or are they rude to you, or are they just stupid? If you and your BF get married, they will be your family, and it wouldn't be too prudent to hide in the bathroom every birthday, Christmas, Thanksgiving, Mother's Day, etc. etc. Can you tell us more about the family dynamic?

Re: Problem with Boyfriend's family

I'm with Hiya, do you have more specifics? I could understand this if they're rude to you or disrespectful... but if they're just low on the braincell count it's pretty weak to hide in the bedroom.

No one's family ever seems as easy to be around as our own - and believe me I have some major differences between mine and my SO's - but you just learn to be more accepting and do your best to adapt and respect that they ARE your loved one's family. I know my parents can have weird quirky moments but my boyfriend just smiles to himself (as I do to his family).

It's just one of those things you have to deal with unfortunately
