  • when my kids are adults thats for them to decide if they were still living at home.. definitely not. But I have 2 boys, who knows if they'll be into older women. My mothers bf is 15 years older than her, and my sisters are both dating men 15 years older than them. So i guess whatever works but, yeah not if they live with me lol. I had ds#1 at 20 and ds#2 at 22 so I mean thats a pretty big age gap

  • I'd tell them it's not my choice who my children date. If my child, of legal age, chooses to date someone who's 102, it's their choice, not mine - friend or not...

    And frankly anyone who was truly my friend who know I'm HIGHLY offended by the idea of asking permission to to date my children - they aren't my property, they are their own people...

  • If my daughter was an adult it would really be her desicion, although I would appreciate if this person was a friend of mine and asked me about it first. If it was a good friend and I felt that they would treat her right then I'd give my blessing, but it would still be up to her. Now if she was still young and living at home I would probably get pretty upset, no one 26 years older than her needs to date her if she's still young enough to be living at home.

  • need more info here. how big of an age differnce. how much of a child? there is a difference between my 25 year old friend wanting to date my 15 year old child and a 35 year old friend who wants to date my 25 year old child.

  • If they were my friend, I would have an issue. that would mean that they had been thinking about this when my sons were minors, and that is just wrong.
