“Free Communication Weekend”

Backstory: My boyfriend and I have been together 4 years. My mom feels he’s an underachiever. My mom feels that even IF he did propose, he wouldn’t be able to give me the life that “I” (read: she) would want. Also, my 30th birthday is in mere days and this to her renders me a lukewarm commodity in the dating sphere.

Mom: Hey, I just heard it’s “free communication weekend” on eHarmony. Just saying…
Me: uh…I’m not single. Isn’t that like false advertising?
Mom: Can you say “it’s complicated” like on Facebook?
Me: Uh… I don’t think so… I think if you’re on that site, it’s pretty much like you’re single and looking for a date.
mom: Well, he said you could start looking if he didn’t propose by June, and next weekend will be July;-)
Me: true… but I have a problem with looking while we’re still together.
Mom: Ok, I just thought “free weekend”.

      On the one hand, super lame of Mom. On the other hand this:

      “he said you could start looking if he didn’t propose by June”

      Is a bit confusing. Shit or get off the pot, dude. Do you actually want to get married or what?

      Mom’s handling this very badly, but I suspect she’s right about the BF.
      He “gave” you premission to start looking if he doesn’t propose by June??? UGGGH.

      Ouch. My bf and I have been together for 11 years and are very happy unmarried. I understand a mom wanting whats best for her child, but at the same time, if the child is happy, that should count for something.

      I didn’t take this one that seriously – it was pretty funny.

      “he said you could start looking if he didn’t propose by June, and next weekend will be July”

      Whaaa?? If this is true, I think this dude is trying to send you a message: he don’t wanna get married, dude. A guy who is into a girl would never suggest that she “could start looking” any time.

      Definitely imagine that which you said. Your favorite reason seemed
      to be at the web the easiest thing to understand of. I say to you, I certainly
      get irked whilst other folks consider concerns that they plainly do
      not understand about. You managed to hit the nail upon the highest
      and also defined out the entire thing with no need side-effects , people could take a signal.
      Will likely be back to get more. Thanks
