It’s time again for “Dear Wendy Updates,” a feature where people I’ve given advice to in the past let us know whether they followed the advice and how they’re doing now. Today, we hear from “Dying to Meet His Mom” who was frustrated that her boyfriend of eight months still hadn’t introduced her to his mother, despite her mentioning several times that she’d like to meet her. She updated us once here, and now that it’s been a couple years, she has a new update.
In regards to my relationship with my boyfriend’s family, I have good and bad news on that front. The bad news is that an immediate family member passed away very unexpectedly just as I was starting to get to know her. Obviously it was and still is incredibly devastating. But, my boyfriend and his family kept me extremely close during that difficult time. He kept me by his side every step of the way. The good news is that his mom really likes me, and I really like her too! They are not a very social family so I can’t say I spend all that much time with her, but he’s told me a few times that she would be very, very happy to see us get married and start a family.
So, thanks again Wendy and DWers. This site has been a daily part of my life for over two years now, and I’m really glad to be a part of the community. — Dying to Meet His Mom
