I need help. I feel like im stuck in mud. My boyfriends mom doesnt aprove of me. She acts super sweet to me in person but says all these mean things to her son behind my back! She told him to break up with me because I act too much like a princess and I will end up cheating or leaving him if I get bored. My boyfriend and I have been together for 8 months. He trusts me to know that I’m not at all the person his mom is describing. She isn’t allowing us to see each other at all now. Pls help.

You can’t control another person’s opinion of you. It sounds like this mom has her own issues - she may be projecting her own fears onto you, she may feel threatened by how much time her son spends with you, she may have seen him get hurt by other girlfriends in the past.

In the grand scheme of life, 8 months is not a very long time for a relationship, though it can feel that way at the time. And if she’s not allowing you two to see each other, it sounds like you two are still young enough that most relationships formed in this period of life end, for whatever reason. But you deserve the chance to develop that relationship and see where it goes.

Ultimately, there’s nothing you can say or do to change this woman’s mind, and I don’t have magical advice. The magic of technology means you two can still communicate despite her controlling behavior. In life, we all meet roadblocks in our relationships and deal with difficult people - if you two can overcome and learn from this, it’ll only strengthen your relationship, and hopefully someday she’ll be able to see how much you do really care for her son.
