This past week a friend of my boyfriends was in town, I met him, & then I asked CJ what his friend thought of me. “She’s a girl you can take home to Mom.” For some odd reason that struck a chord in me, probably because this is NOT the first time I’ve heard it. The ex-New Guy I dated briefly months ago said that I was just right to meet his mother. I never did but he used to say it. The Mess too used to always bring me around his mother, grandmother, & other family members even tho he had tons of girls on the side. What does this all mean? What does it mean that I’m a girl you can take home to Mom?
I’m not sure why this saying is bothering me so much. I know I’m not a hooker or look like a call-girl but I wear eye-liner, sometimes my tops are a lil too low, I will drink, perhaps smoke a hookah, I’ll wear high leather boots, & once in a blue moon I won’t realize that the skirt I’m wearing is just a wee bit too short. I guess it’s how I carry myself. I mean I’m polite, respectable, I don’t talk with my mouth full, I say please & thank you but hmmm….
Perhaps it means I can successfully be a blend of all the things needed to be a good girlfriend? Be appropriate with a parent AND still be a secret Pretty Woman girl?
Maybe it's bothering me because all the relationships have failed & I’m scared of hearing it again that it will put a damper on my current relationship. CJ is such a good guy that I’m ever so lucky. I don’t want him to think I’m dull or boring or frumpy. I gotta take it up a notch! Or just be myself. Yeah I like that plan. Just be myself & try to show him how much I love him. I hope he thinks that’s a good thing that he could brought me home to his mother and have her like me. I think his Mom likes me a lot. She actually invited me and my mother to a Party Light Candle Party this Friday. It’s all so promising.
I’m probably over-reacting to this lil statement. I just want the relationship to work out so badly I’m picking at straws to make sure there are no flaws. Forget the past because this is new. CJ is so new to me with a successful serious relationship & I’m loving it. I just have take it one day at a time…
How do you interpret the whole “Girl you can bring home to Mom” saying? Good or Bad? I’d love to hear.
