My Mum Says He’s Ugly

DEAR AUNTIE ABENA,

Greetings to you and all the mano fans. Family I have a problem which I’m writing to seek for solution.

I’ve been dating this guy for 2 years 7 months now. He’s 30 years and has a height of 5.3ft with a body weight of 52kg. I’m 23 with a height of 5.7ft and a body weight of 72kg so I’m taller and thicker than him.

In our first year of dating he visited my family (my mom and sister as I lost my dad 17 years ago). Before the visit he mostly spoke to my mom on phone and sent her money and sometimes gifts. She began to like him though she hadn’t seen him before.

Somewhere 2019 in December my guy came to visit us and that’s where the problem started. Auntie Abena, immediately he left my mum asked me if I’m not shy walking with such a guy. I tried to convince her that his height doesn’t matter because he’s a good guy but mom was not convinced. She said we both look ugly by comparison (UBC).

We both love each other so much. He has done a lot for me especially paying for my fees whiles I was in school. He’s shown me nothing but true love. We planned on tyng the knot probably next year but mom says she doesn’t like his height.

This is the fifth time she is talking about his height. And I haven’t told him about what she said about his height. I am scared to lose him to someone else because of his height. Please I need advice, no insults.

  1. Love is not about Physical appearance, if your mum is the one going to spend the rest of her life with the person you marry then listen to her. If not then go for what the heart wants. Don’t forget good guys are hard to come by these days
