Gain Insight: Parents Won’t Stop Matchmaking Efforts
This Article Brought To You By:
I am 42 years old. I have been married twice and both marriages were disasters. My parents have always tried to set me up with this nice woman and that one and I am sick of it. I am a grown man. I don’t need them constantly setting me up on dates. They have always tried to tell me how to live my life and they say it’s my fault that I have been divorced two times now. How do I get them off my back?
Stop letting them tell you how to run your life. Critical parents seem to never back off. You will have to be firm with them and tell them you are not interested in them match making on your behalf. Regardless of who’s fault it was the marriages didn’t work you don’t have to continue to listen to the blame game being played with you. It takes two to play these kinds of games. So, Dale, stop playing.
