Dating my mom
Last month, she told me her boyfriend was moving in with her, and this weekend I met him.
Prudie, he’s my age (31), devastatingly handsome, nice, and seemingly intelligent. My mom seems head over heels for him, and as far as I can tell, he reciprocates.
All the profiles are initially set up by the younger generation (who must be at least 18 years old), who can sign up on behalf of a single, older relative (typically their parents but it could also be an aunt, uncle or friend).
Then, I was coming home for Christmas and I had this vision of meeting my mom’s new boyfriend. I yelled into the cold air, complaining and whining to him. I imagined the puffs of condensation were him, telling me to get over myself in the nicest way possible. He hasn’t been there for a while, thanks to his diagnosis of terminal cancer when I was 26.That doesn’t mean you have to embrace him uncritically—by all means, trust but verify. We want to split the profits with our daughter and granddaughter.If he starts treating your mother in a way that suggests a potential for abuse, you should absolutely intervene, but there’s a non-zero chance that he’s just happily dating an older woman. We have given our sons a lot help over the years—over ,000 for several failed businesses to one and bought a condo for the other.Then he would leave, and maybe I would see him, ohhhhh, once a month. At least I had – I don’t think the pain ever really muted for my mom.I could hear it on the phone – her frustration with having to plan coffee dates with friends instead of just having a body you like to sit on the couch with.
