She Mail: Woman Tired Of Parents Setting Up Blind Dates
Julie Fisk is here to help. If you’ve need advice or want us to hash out a problem on the air for you, let Julie share some of her wisdom.
Here’s what our SheMailers and HeMail are asking this morning:
“Tony & Julie, I need your help.
Over the weekend, my parents went out with some friends. They kept texting me throughout the evening about how cute their waiter was and that they were going to set me up on a blind date with him.
I actually have someone that I’m already interested in, and I’m happy exploring the potential there at my own pace. However that doesn’t seem to be good enough for my mom. I’ve never been comfortable with others meddling in the affairs of my heart, and I feel like this blind date thing is overstepping.
What should I do? I don’t want to go on the blind date, but I kinda feel obligated. How should I tell my mom that I am happy with seeing guys at my own pace without making her upset?
“I’ve always stayed close with my ex-boyfriend James. We broke up about two years ago and have had a “friends with benefits” thing going whenever the two of us weren’t with anyone else. He’s a great guy and I truly think we’re meant to be in each other’s lives … just not romantically.
But my new boyfriend, Robert, hates the idea of James and me being friends. He even said if I don’t cut off contact with James, he’s going to break up with me.
Do you think that’s fair? Can’t I keep James in my life without Robert being jealous? Or am I not giving this thing with Robert a real chance if I know I have James on the backburner?
“My best friend Melanie has been leaving and then going back to her emotionally abusive husband for two years now, and I’m not sure how much more of this I can stand by and watch.
Just as recently as last week, I helped move her out of the apartment they share, only to be told today that she’s moving back in. I want to be a supportive friend, but this is starting to eat me up inside and I don’t know how much more of this I can take.
How do I tell her I can’t watch this anymore without losing her friendship and losing her to this jerk of a guy?”
Check out the advice Julie gave our SheMailers this morning!
