Today, I asked my mom about signing up for an online dating site. She took one look at me and said, "Why get rejected online when you can just go outside for the same?" FML

:( That's harsh, especially since it's your mom.

Why? B/c people are lazy and there's no easier rejection than when you're sitting down in the comfort of your own home...

Tell your mom you got your looks from her.

That's so cool! I love chips and salsa :)

How does online dating make OP lazy? If you are looking for a partner than why not look in a place where there are people also looking for the same thing? Chance meetings with your life partner don't often happen in real life, leave that for the movies.

:( That's harsh, especially since it's your mom.

Sometimes hearing the truth from your mom may feel worse but it's actually out of love and a lot better than from another person.

Wow #53, I bet you're all kinds of fun at parties. That's clearly the best way to boost someone's self esteem. OP, FYL. If you have the means to pay for membership on a dating site and that's something you would like to do, then you really don't need to ask your mom. That was a shitty thing for her to say.

Why the **** did you ask your mom before signing up to an online dating website?

She wasn't asking if she could. She asking for her mom's opinion if she thought it was a good idea or not.

#15, nowhere in the FML does it say OP was asking for an opinion.

The third word in the fml is 'asked'

She probably asked to get some advice, and she got a different answer.

#15 'About' implies it. If it were 'if I can' I would agree that OP was asking permission.

Don't let it get to you OP. There's loads of people out there like you and if you keep your chin down instead of up, you'll never see when they're in front of you. So keep your chin up :)

Yeah why include your mom in this decision?

She probably just wanted to know her opinion on it.

And why the heck we ask those questions in first place, it's their family and they got their own way of life.

Well maybe she's just kidding, go give it a shot I know a lot of people who have found someone they like on those sites, just make sure it's eHarmony because they ranked number 1 in online marriages ;)

creepy old guys on commercials never lie

oh come on guys. FML is the perfect site too!

Chin up OP! Some people meet the love of their lives on dating websites. Show your Mumma what you've got and go find yourself a partner! :)

I was lucky and met mine online. It can work as long as you're smart and safe.

I did too. it's helpful so you know a little bit about the person before you decide to talk to them, you don't have to waste time figuring out if you're both looking for the same thing and all that good stuff.

Aww I'm sorry don't listen to her. I say go for it. You never know who you may meet. You'll never know unless you try. People go on there to find someone worthy of dating, and I hope you do too. Good luck!

Your mom is a bitch. You will find your true love eventually, keep your chin up. :)
