Mom Starts Dating
If you are a parent of sons or if your daughters are already grown up and married, you probably think you don't have to worry about every having to ask a guy what his dating intentions are ever again.
Well that may not be true, especially with the age of online dating and freedom in our society. There is a chance that your own mom may start dating after a divorce or death of her husband. We all wonder how our moms will get along without dad, especially if they were married for a long time. Many of us think she'll just get a dog to have some companionship, but it may throw us for a loop when we find out our mom has a boyfriend.
It's okay that your mom has found a companion, regardless of her age. It can be a daunting thing to think about – your mom in a relationship. However, it's important to keep her feelings in the forefront of your thoughts – maybe her new single friend is someone who is helping her cope with loneliness and just because you equate dating with something more than dinner and a movie, doesn't mean your mom, or her new gentleman friend does. They may just be friends who enjoy keeping each other company, and you as a son or daughter, should back off and let them be.
Sure, you can throw a fit and embarrass your mother, but that's not likely to get you anywhere. She's entitled to her own life, even post-dad, regardless of how you feel about it. Try to chill out a bit and relax, talk to your mom and even her new friend. Accept life for what it is, because your mom will probably tell you that life is far too short to worry so much about such little things.
