I try to have good relationships with all acquaintances and to be as polite with them as possible. At the same time my acquaintances usually are polite with me so they don’t ask about my private life too much. Of course I am open to discuss any question about my life with my close friends and I know that I can be sure about them.

adoption deserve more attention. I have failed mu process of adoption, so I cannot give any piece of advice. All I can do is to tell you my story. My boyfriend and I have found an agency for adoption program and start the process. After two years of delayed meetings and unreasonable reasons for refusals this agency apologized and said that they couldn’t do anything more to help us. After some time we have discovered that this agency doesn’t exist anymore. It was the biggest disappointment of my life.
I just hope you guys will never met such agencies in your life.

It never occurred to me that there can be some rude questions about adoption... Can anyone give some examples? Adoption is a thing of a big generosity and kindness - in most cases - so I cannot imagine any "confusing" things about adoption that can be uncovered by any kind of questions asked. Though in the case of LGBT marriage that may occur - but in that case the question is more about your orientation, not the adoption itself. I am lucky to live among people, who are ok with adoption among LGBT marriages. that is due to fact that there are some really good examples of how good gay parents can be. So - any examples of those rude questions, anyone?)

One gay couple that I know - recently had a really unpleasant discussion with some people. They adopted a girl three years ago - and though they live in Glasgow - even there they bumped onto intolerance among locals. they were on the football match with their daughter - and one old couple started the argue with them, when they figured out that it is their kid - and that they are a couple. They told me that there were usual questions , sort of "What do you think you will teach your daughter " and "what right did you have to adopt the child". One of that gay couple asked if those old fellows had kids of their own. And it figured out that they did not. what I am saying - is that rude questions usually are being asked by the people who have no happiness in family life of their own.

I think I wrote about this on some other forum... I have friends - a gay couple from Barcelona. They have an adopted girl - 6 years old already. So they did tell me that some people are scowling suspiciously on them. they told me that only one they had silly questions about "being gays and having a kid", and that happened while they were travelling across Europe - when they were in Ukraine, I think.. Never did that happen in Barcelona or any other western European city. Only ignorant people can ask such questions. These people usually do not even want to hear the answer to that questions - their only goal is to make you feel embarrassed.

i think that it is really better not to tell the other people abut your adoption. normal people would never react negatively, or even if they think something bad it does not mean that they have to tell all their thoughts to you. as you understand not all people are normal, and there are those who want all people to know their opinions. it is better to keep it in a secret and do not worry that someone may tell you something rude. you know that you have done everything right and do not worry about what other people think.

I agree with Robb. First of all you should be sure that you do everything right. It doesn't matter what other people think about you. Usually they just don’t care, because they have their lives full of problems and events. But if they talk about you it only means that their life is really boring and not worth talking about.

For all my life I have heard so many rude questions and opinions about my life, that I think even my immune system works to block them from the first second. I am tired of all this lectures about the life and how I should live it. I avoid any conversations with people who are not my close friends. They will not understand me anyway. Why are they so sure that they now what is better for me? I don't tell them how to live and I expect the same respect to my life style.

i know that a lot of people in most cases are really very interested in other people's lives and they often give a lot of questions. and in some cases these questions are really very rude. they do not accept us and they do not want to understand that we are the same as they are and we also want normal life with children and everything like that. they often judge us that we adopt children because we can not give them anything good.but i do not believe in it and i think that you have to avoid all the questions if you consider them being rude. you do not have to answer them. just keep calm and do not pay attentions to such people.

I think you should not pay attention to any rude questions about adoption. Is that so important for you? Is it important what other poeple think. I guess it is more important what you feel and want. You have to think more about your future family and child. So, pay less attention to other people's opinion and enjoy your own life.
