Ask Bill & Dave

My 'rents keep trying to set me up

 
Whenever I go to parties with my parents, they always try to set me up with their friends’ son—my childhood playmate. He’s weird, and I have no interest in him. Just because we played house when we were 5, doesn’t mean I have to like him.

 

Dave: Your parents probably think it would be cute for you to have your childhood friend as a BF. But I’m sure if you nicely explain your feelings, your folks would agree with you that playing house as kids means little when it comes to having a real boyfriend.

 

Bill: This just shows why you should move every couple of years—so you don’t have to hang with kids you knew when you were 5. And maybe stop partying with your parents. In any event, one person’s weird guy is another’s prince charming. Thank the ’rents for the suggestion. Tell your weird friend you think he’s nice. Then get out!
