My brothers threaten my sensitive lover

loved one: I grew up in a house full of boys. I have four brothers who were rowdy and loud. Also, my father had a very big presence at home.

I have a boyfriend who is unlike them. He is sensitive and considerate. As much as I love my family, I will never call them sensitive. My boyfriend cries when we watch some movies or when sad things happen. I love this about him.

But when he is around my family, it leaves him insecure. They constantly nap at her and tease her because she is “soft”. When I tell them how much I like them and I appreciate that soft side, they laugh at me.

How can I get my family to welcome him when he is so different from them? Clearly, they can be bulls.

Stop bullying my man

Dear stop completely my man: Your lover needs to work out a level of comfort for himself with his family. You can’t do that for him.

He does not have to become a bully himself or attempt to separate from him, but he needs to establish his place among the boys. My guess is that they will need to be able to ignore them, falsify their taunts, and stand their ground.

What you can do is make sure that you tell your family clearly how much you care for it. You too, should ignore their body. If you do not add fuel to that fire, it may decrease.
