My mother doesn’t trust anyone.
She thinks that every boy who asks me out, has an alternative motive.
She doesn’t realize they may like me because I have a good personality, and I make people laugh. Maybe some of them think I’m pretty, but no all of them want to date me because my dad owns the local HVAC company. When I graduated high school, I took HVAC classes at the local college. I used my mom’s maiden name when I was in class, so no one knew my last name, and connected it to my dad. I met the sweetest guy there, and we ended up working at the same HVAC company. For three years, we dated and talked about our futures in the HVAC company, and for us. When I took him home to meet my parents, my mom pulled me aside. She asked if told him I was the daughter of the HVAC company owner. I told her no, and she got angry. She told me he was a keeper, and if he knew my dad owned the HvAC company, he would want to marry me. I didn’t want someone to want me for who my dad is. I wanted him to want me because of who I am. When my dad came into the room, my boyfriend knew who he was. He said his dad worked for him, and told him who he was. He then asked for my hand in marriage. I asked him if he asked because of who dad was? He frowned and pulled a ring out of coat. He said he had this long before he met my dad.
