My overly persistent mom keeps pestering me about going out with a foreign guy. I don’t know what her deal is but she’s starting to piss me off. It might stem from the fact that my dad left us when I was just a kid. Now that I’m old enough to date, she has strict rules with the guys I choose. It would’ve been okay if it doesn’t seem so racist but it kinda does no matter how you look at it. She probably wants me to date foreigners instead of local ones since they might be like my dad. She’s deduced the entire population of the guys here in my country to one type of standard. How can I possibly deal with her trauma and perspective on this?
