Today, I had to tell the third guy that my mother set me up with that it wasn't him, it's me. Apparently my mother thinks if she sets me up with enough guys, I will "date the gay out". FML

You need to tell her to her face that she needs to stop. It's completely disrespectful to not only you but also to the people she is setting you up with. She won't change until you confront her.

I'm sorry your mother can't accept you for who you are, I have the same problem. :(

Hook ups by anyone never works out, you'll find yours Op, don't worry:)

The problem isn't so much the fact that her mother is setting her up with random "hookups" - though that isn't good by any means- the problem is that op's mother is purposely setting her up with a gender she isn't attracted to in order to force her to be straight.

I mean, if her mom would hook her up with GIRLS, it might work out. But forcing a lesbian to date a man will never work.

Two questions....Why do you keep going on these dates, and how the hell does your mother know so many single young men?

They're probably mostly sons of her friends or coworkers. Somewhere along those lines.

which gay will you date out?

The happiness form of gay, if her mom keeps this shit up.

I exactly know how that feels being put in a similar situation. Don't worry OP, you will eventually move out and be able to live the life you want to live!!

I'm sorry your mother can't accept you for who you are, I have the same problem. :(

no matter what your mum tries, be yourself. She is bound to accept that she can't change who you are

You need to tell her to her face that she needs to stop. It's completely disrespectful to not only you but also to the people she is setting you up with. She won't change until you confront her.

Easier said than done. Maybe OP isn't in a position to do that.

I just don't get how some people are still so ignorant to how sexuality works. She can't change you to be what they want, so she should just accept it

Sucks that your mom does this. From experience: it took a while with my father to accept it, but eventually he did. I hope your mother will do the same.

Just compromise with her, say 'Mom I'm bisexual' but never date any girls

You mean boys.

Bisexuality is already so misrepresented... I'd like people not to lie about it, it's only going to create more dumb stereotypes and confusion ; and people shouldn't have to "compromise" about their sexuality

That is not a good idea, in my opinion, because that is hiding who op really is and that is not okay.

21 good point :P

I've seen people saying its "selfish" to be bisexual or that they need to choose. From both sides. It's very sad..
