Today, I was supposed to talk to my girlfriend's mom to ask permission to date her daughter but I chickened out. We've been together for almost a year, but have not been on a real date because I am too damn scared of her family. FML

no I actually agree with the OP. my parents are the strictest people in the world. all my friends are scared of them, that's why my parents don't know that I have a bf.

It has already been explained several times, they're not really from France, they've been sent from a mobile phone. When this happens, the site sets the location to the default, which is France, because, well, the site is French.

Though if the location had been "US", I doubt you would have said "what's wrong with these Americans"...

that happened to me. my boyfriend was scared of my parent and he got mad cuz I broke up with him. I told him if he's scared of my family then how was he supposed to come over for parties etc.

hate to agree with the masses but if you don't "man up" then soon enough the fml will be "today I found out I got my girlfriend pregnat, her parents never knew we started dating... a year ago"

It's fucking ridiculous, American jumbo. Why just don't date, fuck and do whatever with anyone you want, since it's none of the parents business.


that's a crying shame old stick, perhaps your tendancy for traditional politeness and manners is frowned upon, but in all honesty sir, YDI for fearing a young ladies mother, take a bottle of champagne to her family and prove your gentlemancy! x

Actually, I've come across several young adults (eg. college aged) who will ask parents permission to date a girl. Not common but it does happen, it's just a respect thing.
