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. We would like to be open about our relationship but I am so scared it will cause a bad rift in my relationship with my son. We are very close but I don’t think he or my other children see me as anything other than a mum and it would be difficult for them to accept me being with anyone let alone someone who is so young.

I am 28 years old and have a 31 year old male friend. We have been friends since we started working together about six years ago. They liked him immediately. My sister even suggested that I date him but I have never looked at him that way.

When I had my daughter, who is now almost 6, I was pretty isolated. I suffered post-partum depression and none of my friends were having kids yet. But I have a mom friend who I can tell every dirty little secret to about how frustrated I get sometimes with my husband and kids and I never feel judged.

By dallasnews Administrator. Dear Carolyn: My friend Kate and I have known each other for years. After essentially growing up together, Kate’s year-old son and my year-old daughter have become interested in each other romantically. Part of why we differ is probably that the risks of irresponsible dating are greater for a girl. What should I do? I was hoping Kate would be my ally in encouraging the kids to date other people, but no dice.
Dear Colorado: Ages 15 and 17 hardly present scary age or maturity-level gaps. And, they’re dating after getting to know each other with a thoroughness almost impossible to find in the wild. The dating other people that you endorse, on the other hand, would more likely lead to pairings based on looks or physical chemistry vs. And I also get that a relationship between your kids could someday strain you and Kate.

And even more important, when have you needed social support more acutely? When my first child was born, the demand on my existing friendships took on a new requirement — practically overnight. Were you a mom, too? Could your child play with mine? Could we have coffee or a glass of wine! And the ratio of rejection is a lot lower than romantic dating. And while I get that many parents have to multitask, the phone is a barrier to in-person connection.
So if you want to make new friends, try going phone-free. Sometimes a common interest can be as simple as your schedule. One year my son and I joined an evening co-op preschool.
