Ask Marilyn: I'm So Embarrassed by My Parents!
J.B. in Cincinnati, Ohio, writes:
Marilyn: This is really hard for me to write, but here goes: I am really embarrassed by my parents. They want to meet my girlfriend, but I just can't do it. Do you have any bright ideas for me? If it matters, I'm 18 years old, and I live at home.
The next time they bring up the subject of meeting your girlfriend, tell them you're not serious about her, and you don't want her to think you are. So you want to postpone a meet-the-parents event indefinitely. That should scare them enough to not bring up the subject again for a long time.
