Jump to navigation. I am a single mother, my oldest child is 17 and he has a 19 year old friend. I have known this man for quite some time and over that time we have developed feelings for each other. I've been single for 8 years and my last relationship was very bad. At first we decided that we had to deny our feelings because we felt it would hurt my son. We were good friends anyway and we have spent a lot of platonic time together. Recently we started seeing each other in secret and it has been a really wonderful time, marred by my feelings of guilt over his friendship with my son.
You really should have discussed it with him first because now it may make it worse that you have been seeing him behind his back. You also have to remember this guy is only 19 he's got a lot of learning and growing up to do before he can settle down especially with someone who is a lot older, mature then him and someone who has children.
Just a thought - what happens if this boy decides he wants children sometime in the future? Can you give that to him?
Honestly, I think it's wrong too. This boy is not a fully grown man.
He hasn't even matured completely yet. Honestly, I think you would be restricting his future by being with him. I know my words are harsh but if my honest opinion isn't what you would like to hear, then I don't believe this was the right place to post your question.
Opinion my son is dating my friend apologise, but
Id stop seeing him. If this was a man seeing his daughters best friend you would be appalled!
It's not worth the rift in your family and there are plenty of other men out there. Would you like it if the situation was reversed?
Happiness my son is dating my friend Exaggerate
I personally think its wrong and hope in the future that I can find someone my own age I look at my sons friends now and don't think in 12 years time I would ever want to sleep with one of them they are like my own kids.
If you must try with this teenager talk to your son first see how he would feel about the situation.
And remember it doesn't matter how mature they might seem he is still just a kid with a lot of growing up to do and life lessons to learn.
End the relationship immediately, I guarantee it will ruin your relationship with your son, things like this tear families apart and there is no forgiving, you are his mother and the person he looks up to and trusts don't go dating HIS friend it is wrong on so many levels there are plenty more men out there good luck.
I'm sorry but 19 is not a man. He's barely out of school and has little experience of the world or life. It is completely up to you as to whether you risk your relationship with your son for the remote chance of a relationship with a kid that I highly doubt will last long than a few years at the absolute maximum.
My son is dating my friend
Think of your son, think of your other children - this will only end badly for all involved. To be gentle, I personally would choose my son first which you stated.
If you need to hide this, and that goes for any relationship you have, then you know it not the right thing to do regardless of his age. You didn't say how old you are, but if this relationship was ok can you cope knowing that you will not fit in with his friends?
Congratulate, your my son is dating my friend criticising write the
Your son having a social life away from you is very important to his growing up and making his way through life. In regards to you, you will be unable to give him children when he wants them for example in about 11 years time will you want him to settle down or are you ok with him partying and having younger girls trying to pick him up? These relationships can work, but it is very awkward for all involved.
Really when you've chosen to hide it instead of being open it its heading down a dark and destructive path. If you can get some good, honest and trustworthy counsel and have a good honest talk with your son, alone it'd be good. Perhaps write out a pros and cons and really get deep into what this relationship means to you. How is it fulfilling you? How is it bringing peace into your life? How is it affecting your family and communication between each other?
What can you offer him and what can he offer you? Have a talk with the fellow involved and really he deep to see what it will involve.
Are you two in the same head space? Life space? Dad got clean and took over sole custody. Somehow I of all people was bestowed with the honour of watching him grow from a sweet young boy to the greatest man I have ever known.
I GOT MARRIED TO MY BEST FRIEND FOR 24 HOURS (w/ MyLifeAsEva) - Brent Rivera
I cannot stress enough my pride in him. Dad says that his son was accepted to a great school across the country and went.
I am a divorced mother. My son left for university miles away from home last year. His best friend from boarding school got a university in our hometown. Since his lodgings weren't working out, my son suggested that he stay at our place as a tenant for a while before working things out. I agreed and I have known the boy for a very long time. As far as I was told, my son was sleeping in his childhood room and his "friend" was in the guest room. I don't know what possessed me to do so, but on Tuesday morning I cracked my son's door open to check on him like I used to when he was a kid. Lo and behold, they're both asleep, snuggled up together, in my son. My son is upset that I've begun dating a guy he went to school with years ago. To begin, I got pregnant at 17 and had Jason with his dad who was my high school sweetheart. We were married for 18 years (which I don't think is too bad for a high school couple) and I've been single for the last 4.
They still see each other every other month. The most solid evidence, however, came a few mornings ago.
Share my son is dating my friend words... super
I want them to be comfortable here and I want them to know I support them both no matter what. Or is that not a good idea?
Am I better off leaving it alone and waiting until they tell me themselves, if they ever do? Well, it turns out a hell of a lot of you were right. He went and talked to the boyfriend after his bath, and then we all had a bit of a further chat.

Now I'm 38 and my son "Ben" is He's been suffering from depression the past couple of years. I take him to therapy every week and he seems to be getting better but he's. I ended up dating a new girl toward the end of my junior year and she was perfectly fine with it we remained friends, and I still hung out with her son. I might be a little warped, though, because while I get that it wasn't a cool thing to do behind my friend's back, .
