Stop telling your parents everything about your love life. Stop giving them information to make their assumptions off of. I went through your old posts and you state that your parents don’t like your boyfriend because of various things you’ve told them (moving in, not getting flowers, seeing a movie, getting baking materials), so stop talking to your parents about him. 

You can’t force your parents (or anybody) to like your boyfriend, but you can stop giving them fuel to keep their fire going.

koalaboo:  I’m confused about why your parents know about a dentist appointment. Do they work at the office?  If not, why do they need to have that information? If they are this petty and uneasonable, I would tell them the least amount of information as possible!  If they don’t like him based off the information you are offering, then stop offering it.  Not saying it is your fault for them hating your boyfriend but if he is a genuinely good person and your parents have some weird vendetta against him, then just keep it on a need-to-know basis. If they keep bringing it up, ignore and change the topic.  If they don’t get it, that’s their own problem.

Honestly, if this is as big an issue as you mentioned, next time you are with your parent/s and they say something negative out of nowhere about your SO, just tell them that the next time they do that. you will just walk away. Make sure they understand that they are not allowed to act this way unwarranted. Tell them you refuse to listen to it and to respect your wishes, or you will avoid them altogether. Then stick to that! If she says something, get up and walk away! Eventually they will get the clue and stop their petty behavior.
