Dating friends mom
We have family dinners together — all six of us — and Abby cooks. The two confessional authors also share a connection in a woman so inspirational that her name has become shorthand for a spirituality of its own: Oprah Winfrey.
Hoping for a wild getaway, the boys instead find themselves out-hustled by an uncontrollable duo.
My friend considers herself to be at fault for her divorce, even though her ex was a horrible human being (though not physically abusive). She is going out of her way to make sure that her kids have a male "father figure" in their lives. I have tried telling her that she is enough, that the kids truly do love her, and that those of us around her are more than glad to pick up the slack, but it often falls on deaf ears.
Her kids are a preteen and an adolescent — a boy and a girl.
I believe that a lot of aimless dating isn't really doing much good for her or her children.
Dear Worried: You're right — aimless dating because of loneliness, guilt or desperation is not good for your friend or her children.
