The weekend was supposed to be about Bernard and his new baby but for some reason, it was mostly everyone telling me to get my shit together and settle down.

I have had flights of fancy thinking about how much easier it would be to just marry Angela, who seems like she'd be ok with it, and just have that be my life. But I also really don't want to.

I think everyone's worried I'm going to turn out as frivolous as our dad. Either that or I'm going to turn out gay.

I guess, either ways, the solution is the same. To get married.

Really have no interest though.

Haha, i like how your dad just about faces for Mai. Is he excited then? And your mom had a nice reaction too.

Have you talked to your parents about the whole asexual aromantic thing? Sucks that they keep pushing marriage, but I know older generations tend to think marriage and children are the final step to success and happiness.

Your dad and Bernard are back in the weird passive-agressiveness?(I thought they were getting along...)

Go David!! you don't need to do something just to please people!!In a while they'll just consider you too old to change as whatever they think you are.As you're 40-something it should be soon just act the most sloppilly relaxed so they think their advice/warning has been useless.
I'm rooting for you!!!
And again congrats to Bernard and Mai!!

@daviddoesntgetit: If you got married, they'd just find something else to nag about. It's the #1 rule all parents/relatives share. :) So don't feel bullied, it's just their nature! Poor Bernard & Mai... getting their thunder stolen, haha. Just wait 'til the baby comes! Everyone will be too happy to bug you. :)

Yeah if you're not sure about getting married it doesn't sound like something you should do haha. It's a pretty big decision to make flippantly especially with Asian relatives to make is a super huge deal. If you're happy being a cool uncle, than awesome! Hooray for Basement Uncle! Congrats to Bernard and Mai though!

@Reealt: Our dad's pretty excited. He's started putting money aside for the baby already.

I've mentioned it before, I've tried talking to them about it, or our mom, specifically, since this is over our dad's head. She assumed it was just a phase as in I have periods of not being interested in sex versus it being a state of being.

Eh. It doesn't suck that much. They mention it but it's not like they've gone out and gotten me a matchmaker or anything. We have aunts and uncles that aren't married so I think as long as Bernard keeps going, they'll leave me alone eventually.

@BurstThrough: Nah, they never get along. Once in a while, Connor, Miriam and I will want to do something for our dad and Bernard will join us but it's not like he changed his attitude.

Thanks, I'll pass on the congrats!

I'm pretty sure they gave up on me a while ago but because Angela came into the picture, they've been getting their hopes up.

@marianasierra: Yeah, you're probably right about that, haha.

I don't feel bullied, it's just whenever they bring up Angela, it makes me feel uncomfortable hanging out with her. I just think she's funny.

Haha, I think the rest of the family is gonna get excited to start being competitive about their kids, which is going to suck shit. I kinda thought that trait would die with our generation but I've noticed some cousins just can't help themselves.

@roxjey: Haha. Thanks. Yeah, I'm excited to be an uncle and I want to stay there!

@TheEmptyPot: Trust me, I am never going to get married. I entertain the thought like a daydream but I know the difference between reality and dreams so you don't have to go telling me what I already knew. I know what I'm doing. I've been doing this for 36 years.

Thanks! I'll pass on the congrats to them. I probably won't be a cool uncle, probably a weird one, but I'm excited anyways.
