Recently my parents got divorced. My mom had been in contact with her old boyfriend from high school at least 6 months before she told anyone. So as it turns out they get divorced everythings fine and dandy. Lately my mom has been asking me if I want to meet her boyfriend. I've been on the fence about it for the past few weeks. I told her that I wasn't quite ready to meet someone that is dating her because it just feels uncomfortable seeing her date someone other than dad. From what she's told me he's pretty quiet and he's really nice. But I don't even know what to do. I want to meet him but at the same time I don't know if I ever want to meet him. I wanted to know if any of you have been through the same situation, how you felt, and whether or not you had a choice to meet them or not.

Although I’ve never had to deal with the emotional baggage that comes along with parents divorcing, I can imagine how strange it would be to have your mom ‘dating’ someone who isn’t your father. You have every right to be nervous and hesitant when it comes to meeting this person, it’s something that’s all too new to you, but eventually you’ll have to meet him (for your mother’s sake, and she seems to want to know what you think of him). Who knows, this guy could be a really fun person to be around. Are you not wanting to meet him because you feel like he's trying to 'replace' your dad or something of the nature?

My mom has had a few boyfriends since her last divorce.She has a 3 husbands, a fiance, and now a redneck boyfriend. He's nice and while I don't like my mom dating, I do like seeing her happy.Don't make things awkward, it won't help either of you. The thing is, no matter if you like him or if you are happy with him, if he makes your mom happy it does not matter - at least one of you can be happy.If you make things go sour, neither of you will be happy.Seriously, take it from someone who knows.
