The guy (29m) I'm (25f) dating and his friends "gatekeeped" me about my hobbies and career, I'm feeling embarrassed.

You’ve worked hard to build your life as you wish it. Please know you never have to make excuses, nor to justify, where you’re at or how you got there.

I wholeheartedly support your decision to end a relationship where your partner completely disregards your comfort and shows such a crude amount of disrespect towards your career. Your hobbies are also yours to enjoy without having to display them to the world while asking you to perform as if in a circus.

Source: I’m an engineer, too, and refuse to be treated as if I don’t belong in some old white dudes’ club. Fact of the matter is, those bitches can’t keep up with my multiplayer FPS k/d anyways, so I’d rather have my own peaceful plane of existence.
