My mother walked in on me and my boyfriend!

May 21, 2012, 06:32 IST | Dear Diana

Dear Diana, I'm in love with my neighbour. Both of us are 19 and are in the same college.

My mom caught us in a compromising position recently and I don’t know how to make things right. It so happened that my boyfriend and I were sitting close to each other on the sofa when she returned early than expected from the market. We were just about to kiss but the look on her face was more than enough to scare the hell out of me. She just flipped and threatened him out of the house. I tried to reason with her but to no avail. She’s also told my dad about it. I don’t know what to do.

Dear Sadaf,
Gosh! You threw caution to the wind and were caught in the act. My dear girl, I must say you are extremely brave to be canoodling with the guy and that too at your home. What did you think that your mom would not turn up for hours and hours? And if she was carrying the house keys, she could slip in at any time. Now that you threw caution to the winds, you should be brave enough to face the music as well. If you are deeply, truly and madly in love with this guy, let your folks be in the know. And next time remember it is better to be safe, than sorry.
