I’m just going to preface this story by declaring that my mum, who I love dearly and count as one of my best friends, has absolutely zero chill when it comes to being a wing woman.
We are a very tight-knit family, which often means we become… quite involved in each other’s lives.
Over the years, my siblings’ partners have embraced the closeness of our family; just before he proposed, my sister’s fiance started working for the same company as mum, and my brother’s girlfriend has previously lived at my parents’ house part-time.
So when I moved back home for two months earlier this year, every Friday night was a party. A party at which I was the perpetual seventh wheel.
For the most part, I don’t mind being single – after too many dates from hell at times I think I actually prefer it.
But lately, my mum has become increasingly comfortable lovingly meddling in my dating life by attempting to set me up.
