mom and internet dating. - October 11th 2010, 02:34 AM

Okay, my question is pretty simple.
Let's say I have this "very close internet friend" :P
How do I go about telling my mom about him?
I have to tell her.

Does she know that you have friends online? Does she know which site he is from or how you met him? If so, I would just casually bring it up. Just be like you know that site that I am on, well I am friends with so and so and we are close. Then if she ask questions from there answer them. Then if she doesn't ask if you like him, volunteer the information and tell him that your sorta closer then friends or whatever you two are. She may be wary but you can try to reassure her that everything is fine and if things get weird or creepy that you will not continue to talk to him.

I know how you are probably feeling. I had to tell my mom about my first "close internet friend" and I was freaking out and one day when she was dropping me off at class we just started talking about it.


Always remember to put your happiness first.

I'm sure she probably figures as much, but she doesn't know for certain. And no, she doesn't know about the site. It's not a site she knows I'm apart of. Well, I was apart of. I deleted my account and now him and I talk other ways.

I think you just have to come out with it and tell her. Sit her down and explain everything to her so she completely understands. There's not really any other way to tell her, you just have to do it.

Take care.
