So let me preface this by saying that I love my boyfriends mother and she tells people all the time that I am her future daughter so I know her intention was never to hurt my feelings….
That said. Today SO and I went to his parents for the afternoon. Friends of the family were down and altough I met the husband and wife a couple years ago their college age daughter was down this time and I had never met her. As my SO mother was introducing me she said this is Nicole…Ryans FFF (she started to stay fiancee) then stopped herself. Her friend stepped in and said Ryan’s girlfriend, then my SO’s mother said yes Ryan’s girl. Ryans s#@% or get off the pot girl. Now she tells him all the time I’m too good for him and he should s#@% or get off the pot. I just smiled and laughed and shrugged it off at the time even though it cut to the bone. I told SO later and he can’t understand why I am upset. His response it’s not my fault she said that… I told him it’s his fault he hasn’t proposed.
Oh well just had to get it out. Now time to do some hoemwork.

I think it is lovely she is so accepting and keen for you to be her daughter in law! Those coments werent aimed at you – they were aimed at her son. Hopefully he understands that!

True! Don’t get me wrong. It’s wonderful that she loves you do much. But I understand how when it’s like his family is more eager for the two of you to get married than HE is it can really hurt.

Oh wow, I admire your strength.
If it were me in the PMS mood that I am in since this weekend, I would definitelly punch him LOL

ITA that the comments were aimed at her son and not the OP. I think it is a good sign that the mom has gone into nagging mode, LOL. Maybe he will listen to her and finally get off the pot.
Good luck, OP!

I agree, she didn’t mean to hurt your feelings. It probably hurts the most that she and everyone else think of you as the future wife but your Boyfriend or Best Friend hasn’t proposed yet. Stay strong!
