I just met my girlfriend’s parents on Saturday. I was short on money, because my boss told me I had to wait till after Chinese New Years. I bought her parents, a few weeks prior, a heating fan, and I had 900 nt left before going to see them. My girlfriend proceeded to tell me that I had to buy something else for them, and that they would probably not like it near as much as they would have liked a red envelope. Turns out that her mom is all about the money, and constantly was criticizing me at the dinner table. I don’t speak nor understand all that much, but I can understand when people look at me, and I constantly hear meiguo, over and over. Apparently, she was told to break up with me and she told me that we can’t let them know, because they will beat her to death, if they find out.
What a nice situation…
Has anyone been in this situation and it worked out, okay, or do you think I’m screwed. She sounds sure that she wants to be with me, but she has only been having her mom and dad nag at her for a day, and I don’t know how her friend’s influences will affect the picture.
I feel pretty lost on this front.
