Yesterday I was at the park with my two kids (ages 17 and 14) and the most unimaginable thing happened to me. I am still in shock and not quite sure how to process it. My oldest was hanging out with a group of his friends at one end of the park and my youngest was with her friends at the other end. I was sitting at a picnic table by myself , enjoying the sunshine, and reading a book. I looked up and noticed one of my son's old friends from elementary school walking by. He stopped to say hi and we visited for a little while. (a little background information - my son and this kid use to be friends when they were younger. He has slept over at our house, has gone on camping trips with us, etc. His mother passed away several years ago when he was only 14 and he has had a very difficult time ever since. I have always treated him like one of my own kids and he knew our door was always open. If he had not eaten that day I would feed him, if I saw him out in public he would come up to me and hug me, if I saw him doing something or hanging out with the wrong crowd I would say - what the heck are you doing - you know better than that - get your butt home. He would smile and laugh at me. He would even introduce me to his friends as his second mom) So we were sitting there talking and he says - can I tell you a secrete? I said - yeah sure - feeling flattered that he was comfortable enough to trust me. Then he drops this bomb and says that he has always liked me and has fantasized about having sex with me. He said he likes older women because they know what they are doing. He wanted to wait until he was 18 to tell me so it would not be a problem. I was speechless and my jaw must have hit the table. Then the first words out of my mouth were, " ARE YOU OUT OF YOUR F---ING MIND!! ABSOLUTELY NOT!! NO WAY IN HELL!!" I told him I was old enough to be his mother, that he use to be one of my son's friends, and that he was way out of line. I was so embarrassed and shocked and then I became angry. Now I am extremely uncomfortable and not sure what I am going to do the next time I see him in public.
I am not hiding under anonymous because this is not a troll post. I am seriously freaking out and need honest advise. Has anyone else ever been in a simular situation? What did you do or how did you react?
