I'm nervous about something. I'm a full fledged adult and my mother has a new boyfriend. I've only spoken to her boyfriend about an hour in life total. He sent a group text to my mother and I sayin/stating that he thinks I have weak problem solving skills and seem to lack basic intuition. He was initially talking about a wrench I selected to change my car battery with, as I guess he would have used a different one. I don't know what else they've discussed in the six months they've been dating. I was offended. I also find it weird that someone(the boyfriend) would say this about me, knowing me as a person so very little. I texted them back saying that I thought it was a bit premature for someone to judge my problem solving skills and explained why I selected the wrench I did. I don't think that any of that matters though. What makes me nervous is that I found his words unfair and inappropriate. This man doesn't even know me. My mother was with an abusive man before for a very long time. I worry the storm is going to come with this one as well and I don't ever want to go through any of that again. Does anyone else find what was said unusual and a red flag? Thanks for your thoughts.
