I CAN'T STAND my BF's family! His parents are divorced & he has 3 siblings. He's different from the rest of them. He has more depth, integrity, sensitivity, & compassion than all of them put together. His mom & grandmother are nice, but the rest...eh! They're the smuggest, unfriendliest, materialistic, egotisical a$$es I've ever met & it would be just fine if I nev saw them ever again. See, normally, I'd never want to associate w/ people like that, but being that they're my BF's family, that's a little harder. When they hv family functions, I dread going, which is why I haven't gone w/ him to his family's things in yrs & I hate when Thanksgiving & Christmas rolls around for this very purpose. This Thanksgiving, I finally went w/ him to his mom's & this Christmas Eve, I finally went w/ him to his dad's. Being at his mom's was OK I guess, but I wish I never stepped foot at his dad's, which I really didn't want to go there anyway. Then New Year's Day is my BF's b-day along w/ his twin brother's. The last 5 or so yrs, my BF & I did our own thing for his b-day, which I'm so glad about. I could go on & on, but I won't. My BF knows how I feel & he doesn't like how they are either. OK, now onto much more pleasanter things! It's nice that we can vent here!
