Okay, so my MIL is a little overbearing. I can deal with that. She also kind of has a grating personality. I can deal with that too (in small doses). What I can't deal with is the fact that she has decided I'm her new best friend. She says that I'm the one person in her life she can talk to about anything and it's okay. While that's great, I'm not really comfortable listening to my husbands mother talk about a 22 years younger married man that they're kind of seeing each other but not really and how much she wants to get it on with him. She's 57 and recently started acting like a 16 year old.
I get that she's in a tough place. She's been widowed for almost 12 years, her step son refuses to talk to her and she and her daughter kind of had a falling out. (Long time coming, it's slowly getting better). The last thing I want to do is hurt her feelings and make her feel alone. I've asked H what I should do, he just says he's glad it's not him. . . thanks babe, that was helpful.
Does anybody have any advice?
