    Hey Heather,

    Would you feel able to actually let your mum know how she makes you feel when it comes to your relationships? Honesty really is the best policy and being able to sit down with your mum and have an open conversation with her about this would be a really mature approach.

    I remember my mum and my ex had a terrible argument once and for days I was completely torn with the situation so I decided to go to my mums and have a chat with her and explain how I was feeling about it. The next day they sorted their differences out for my sake.

    Maybe if you feel able to sit down with your mum and let her know exactly how you're feeling, she may put your feelings and your happiness before her own because this is your life? From the things you've said before, am I right in thinking you and your mum have a pretty close relationship?

    From the way you've described this guy, it doesn't sound like there's any real reason for anyone to judge him. The most important thing is that you're happy so if he makes you happy then go for it. Whether your mum likes it or not, it's completely your decision.

    I'm sorry I don't have any tips on how to make telling your mum seem easier, I think this is just one of those things you simply have to bite the bullet with. I'm certainly aware that's easier said than done though. Maybe you'd find it easier telling her over the phone if you decide you definitely can't do it face to face?

    I hope this gets sorted soon for you *hug*

    Hi Heather *hug*

    So sorry things didn't go so well with your mum - were you able to tell her how she makes you feel when she reacts like this, as butterfly123 suggested?

    As you expected she didn't react in the best way...and of course it's upsetting as it clearly matters to you what she thinks. However it's also important to note what you said earlier;

    What is it about him that your mum didn't like and made you want to end it?
