    Blazing. could you supply some idea of what your mom is like. it might help to narrow things down a bit.

    Then keep things to down-to-earth topics.
    travel.
    occupations.
    health.
    The weather.
    what people do for fun (That can be kept safe)


    Ultimately anything can be made safe, but i think the key is to not make it sound like you are keeping to 'safe' topics.... nothing sounds more fake than artifical conversation.

    You know what? He's a good guy if he's insisting on spending time with your parents.

    There might be some embarrassing moments, but if it happens, take them in good stride. Don't get upset or pouty or go silent (speaking from experiences long since past here). Just laugh at yourself and show that you can take it.

    It will go well...thank your lucky stars he cares enough to meet your mom and have FUNNNNNNNNNN!

    Blazingorchidlv, you should post the same thing over here that you posted in dvm's thread asking for advice on her love life and let everybody know the history behind this meeting with your mom and b/f. I think you would get a more appropriate response from everyone.

    i guess ur right! lol here it is:
    Not really advice but i kinda know what ur going through but on diff terms? lol I started talking to this guy online when I was 17 he was 29. It started off as just saying hi how ya doin and not really TALKING much...now 4 years later...we have a semi "relationship" type thing...he used to come to vegas all the time but at that time i was still underage and didnt want to get caught up in all that. Now he is 32...I will be 21..and he is coming to town again and we are meeting this December after 4 years..but when I told my mother how old he was...she flipped out...because he is the same age as my older brother. Hes 11 years and 2 months older than me. I sat down with her..and I talked to her about him..and how even though we are so far apart in age..how we have a lot in common and everything. And I forget who but someone was saying some questions ur parents might have..and those are the same questions my mom asked me. Has he been married...why isnt he married...does he have kids etc. And I answered everything truthfully. And she has actually talked with him and is now Ok with it. And although mine is on a different level because him and i havent met...(although after 4 years i know him better than most of my friends lol) I just sat down and told her about him and why I like him and everything. For me my mom may accept it only because he lives in NY me in Vegas..and she thinks nothing will happen between us. But well just have to see how things go when he comes to town. But I do agree with everyone about just sitting with your parents and finding out what frightens them the most. Maybe theres more to it than just his age.
