God, my heart is melting. Tongtong's relationship with her mother may very well be the greatest parent/child dynamic I've ever seen. It is such a breath of fresh air to see how Tongtong isn't afraid of being open about her sexuality with her mom, and how her mom is fully supportive and willing to help her through her journey of self-discovery. It makes me want to strive for that kind of connection with my own children, should I ever become a parent myself.

I'm the same.

Seeing Tongtong happy and humming to herself—because her mom will help her and she's certain that her mom can make anything happen—fills my heart to the brim with warm and fuzzy feelings. <3 <3 <3

On another note, that guy who said to an obviously plastered woman "How about I buy you some more drinks to sober you up?" needs a hard kick to the balls. ◣_◢

I read that as a “hair of the dog” thing cause the mom seemed in control of the situation but I could be wrong

I read that as non alcoholic beverage, like water or soda, otherwise it wouldnt make much sense :0

Hair of the dog is a hangover cure. And sometimes it works. I think the line may have been a bit botched (in either the original or the TL) as he isn't being portrayed as malicious. I think the idea is that he was offering to buy her water or get her somewhere (public) to slow down and sober up as both seem to be consenting, in control adults. Although if you're fall down drunk you're not actually this lucid, but hey, it's fiction

TBH I would not be surprised at all if she was faking much of her inebriation, likely as a gambit to appeal to her current beau's evident chivalrous streak. We're talking about quite the accomplished man-eater here after all - and she certainly seems like she'd rather enjoy getting fussed over by a concerned handsome lad...

Best thing China has produced since gunpowder... and genocides.

edgelord alert !!

Not what I meant. Genocides aren't cool, It's just that China's history is very bloody and... genocidal. So they produce a lot of the "Best" Genocides around. Not a great... joke or comment but I'll stand by it.

Glad the mom is on her side, but something tells me she’s going to come up with a whacky and unpredictable plan that will cause more harm than good

Yeah, plus she did state "hope she won't see as idiotic mom who thinks about men" which is something you don't want to hear when asking for advice towards at them.

I really was thinking, "what kind of psychopath sleeps wearing dangling earrings?" while reading these chapters.

Who knows what TongTong’s mother has up her sleeves; she’s a gamble, she gives very good advice at times and sometimes she’s just an airhead.

Also, the mother stated “hope she won’t see me as an idiotic mom who thinks about men” is because in the past she wanted to teach TongTong about romance because as you saw from the flashback TongTong wanted to know about love and romance, to which her mother responded with fangirling about guys to TongTong hoping she would go along with the fangirling.

What she didn’t know was TongTong isn’t straight. And so the mother felt bad on her behalf that she to her daughter might’ve look like an airhead mother who talks about nothing but guys, when really she thought she was helping her daughter at the time.

So to your statement I say you interpreted the flashback and the mother’s sentence wrong. You can always get advice from TongTong’s mother and end up fine, no worries.

I guess I didn't state it clear enough, I can use other example why I support the message of I reply instead of use of what the Mother said, so just to clear of what I really meant is...

...the Mother can be supportive, but sometimes a supportive person can gone off the hill or over supportive and cause harm more than good

I know someone who does that! And they most likely (though it's not confirmed) aren't a psychopath!
So... It happens I guess.
Now if we're talking about the hairclips tho..That's a whole other level of insanity

(Actually the person I know says the clasp is a bit hard to open and close, so they avoid removing them)

Everyone is saying Lin Xiao Lu's mother sucks, but like... Leaving the house at night without telling her and then obviously lying about why seems like a legitimate reason for a parent to get angry/concerned.

I think the issue is more about creating an environment where Lin Luxi can never be honest about what she does, e.g. going to meet a friend in the park. That's why the contrast is so striking, as Tongtong immediately tells her mom everything since she trusts her completely, whilst Lin Luxi basically seems to hide her entire life from her mother.

u come to read a cute little romance and get a panic attack because you've lived through a controlling mom that makes you feel like lying to her in any situation is the only acceptable solution

Pretty much this. Supportive and accepting primary caretakers raise beautiful cinnamon rolls, while those who impose arbitrary expectations on their children only leave them withdrawn and traumatized to the point of self-denial.
