Honest and OLD, Ever since my Marriage falling apart surrounded by sorted lies I have committed myself to being completely honest. Sometimes I am blatant (depending on the situation) but I just can't stand lying about anything ...
I met my SO on OLD I have tried to be honest about it but I knew deep down my family (Mom, Brothers and Sisters) wouldn't take this well - As my mom is in her early 90's and my brothers and sisters are much old then me also. I believe it is a closed minded generation thing amongst my mother watching too much drama tv and she quotes me "judge Ju#y" all the time. about this woman met a man online and was scammed out of a large sum of money. So now my brothers are calling me telling me about our mom and trying to tell me that I should break this all off.
There is no reason for any of this, in fact, I have throughly checked SO out ... I really believe that no matter where you meet anyone that you could be scammed. But now because of me trying to be honest with my mom and because of her being so paranoid no one in my family is going to give SO a chance ... My life will now become their (my families) new stirred gossip of drama!
So my big mistake is I tried to be honest and I told my mom that I met SO online but she started to have a panic attack and blow a gasket. So I quickly back tracked to we met through mutual friends and then emailed at great length. So now my mom is on a "witch hunt" and telling all my brothers/sisters that I met him online and that he is going to take me to the bank or I am going to end up dead ... etc.
I just don't know what to do ... I don't want the drama and I want to be honest but it is going to just makes things worse.
Any advise would be great as I just want to crawl into a hole for trying to be honest with her and now for her stirring a mess about her fears of me meeting him online ... Grrr I love family but yet there are moments like this when I didn't.
