When my boyfriend and I first met, we hit it off instantly. We would spend up to three hours on the phone every night talking about anything. After the second date, we decided to make things official and start 'dating'. So then, my parents, of course, wanted to meet him. They did and instantly I could tell my dad wasn't in favor of him. My boyfriend was a complete gentleman! He was nothing but nice. I asked my dad what he thought and he said there was something he didn't like about him. He just seemed not to 'mesh well' together. My mom sided with my dad. My sister expressed her opinion saying that he wasn't good-looking enough for me and that I could do a whole lot better. After all of the hints and gestures that my family were throwing around, I got tired of everything and broke up with him.

For almost two weeks, I wasn't happy. I cried all the time, lost weight, couldn't sleep. I wasn't myself. Then my (now ex) boyfriend called me and we talked and we both want to get back together. We are back together and my family kinda knows, but they haven't said anything. They keep saying that they want me with someone that fits better with me and can take care of me. My boyfriend has been nothing BUT good to me. He treats me wonderfully, takes care of me, and is a total gentleman. And then my friend tells me that he bought a RING! And now it looks like he's going to propose and my family hates him. What do I do to make peace? My boyfriend said that he is staying and he doesn’t care what my family says, but I’m still worried that I’m going to loose him. And I don’t want to because I love this man and I do want to spend the rest of my life with him.
