Is this normal for a mom to do
For one thing, I am a 24 year old girl. I have a full time job, and a bachelor's in psychology.
Whenever I try to go on a date with a guy, my mom goes really berserk. She says I can't go and usually it ends up in a really big argument. She says one day I will be kidnapped because I am meeting "online predators" and that I'm going to be sold in the sex slave market. I feel like she's treating me like I'm a 16 year old.
In my defense, I talked to the guy for a good month AT LEAST before I even ask to meet him. I usually have a skype session too.
I have dated a few guys but I have had to really REALLY convince her as to why I can go.
I feel like I missed a lot of friendship or dating opportunities.
I do have my own car but she feels the need to tell me where I can and cannot go.
Is this normal behavior? I feel like it's not but she says it is????
