i find it funny and strange that the same people who weren't bothered by the abusive "teabagging" fml are feeling so bad the op's not so shocking problem? how is the fact that some1's bf keeps a picture of his ex on the fridge worse or more pityworthy than a poor girl who's bf sat naked on her face and slaped her with his penis?? someone please enlighten me??
58, the teabagging FML wasn't "abusive" in that, nowadays, a large majority of couples jokingly do this to each other. I would find it hilarious if my bf did (and he has done) this to me, though I'd still think "sigh... FML" because I was being... erm, 'conquered', for a lack of a better word. :P It's almost like creating an inside-joke. A similar principle. It's something within the relationship, involving the two people who care about each other :) Conversely, in this one, the bf is humiliating her 'stance' in the relationship by keeping a photo of someone else, someone outside their relationship. And outside the OP's knowledge. Something that could potentially ruin the relationship. If this makes sense. But also, it's probably the mum keeping the photo, not the bf; from the FML, it seems like the bf doesn't live there anymore and has no control over how the mum decorates the fridge. /long explanation
So your boyfriends mom liked his previous girlfriend, she hadn't met you yet. Just be cool and soon you'll be hanging there :)
my bf and I were together for 7 yrs and I am still welcome at his parents home. I always make sure he's not there so he's not uncomfortable. you can't take away 7 years of being treated like family.
