TL;DR My family always used to be optimistic about my love life, then grew concerned as I got older and now assume that I’ll be forever alone. I bet I’m not the only one on here who thinks this, and I’m sure anybody else would also agree that it makes them feel worse. When I was in high school and through my early 20’s (almost 25 now), my parents and other family members would ask me if there’s any girls that I like and ask me about girls at my high school, and also encourage me to ask someone out when school dances were coming up soon. I always made excuses and quickly changed the subject whenever they would bring it up. As I got older, it turned to them asking with a more concerned tone and my sister straight up asking me if I’m ever going to get a girlfriend in addition to having my sexual orientation questioned by a few different people in my family. Then last year, my mom tells me that statistics have shown that a lot of millennials end up staying single and that maybe I fall into that category. Then just yesterday my mom and grandma were talking about my sister hopefully changing her mind about having kids when she gets married and then saying that I can be around to take care of her after my sister has a family. They assume I’ll be forever alone and its fucking harsh coming from my family.
