I’m not saying I want a boyfriend. It’s just sometimes I’m in a position when I would like one.
And my mom said I can’t have one until I go to college. College! Just because she was 21 when she had her first actual boyfriend. And that was only because she had strict parents and lived in South America when she was young, so her parents were protective. And my dad just follows along with whatever she says.
I know she thinks she’s losing her little girl. But she isn’t. I’m still me, and getting a boyfriend wouldn’t make me love my family any less. I just feel I could use one sometimes. Someone to comfort me and tell me I’m beautiful. Not them, because they’re my parents and probably just say that to make me feel better.
