    You're old enough to be his MOTHER!!

    And other classics...

    How would you answer that statement?

    What other kind of stupid stuff do people say about your OW/YM AGR and what is a good comeback?

    Well my relationship is over now, but a couple months after it started, my ym's dad told me, "I think you're being silly, there's no future for you in this." My response was, "I have no expectations."

    When I told one friend about our age gap, she said...

    "You could be his mother!"

    "But I'm not."

    "But you COULD be!"

    "But I'm NOT."

    Ok, you get the picture... we hit that ball back and forth a couple more times and then dropped it.

    So yeah, I definitely need to develop some snappier comebacks.

    Someone walks up to my desk at work, sees the picture of Remi and me sitting next to each other cuddling on a sofa. She asks, "Is that your son?"

    I say, "No, my son is the one in the picture over there. He's the guy with the receding hairline."

    OR don't say anything at all, they'll have nowhere else to go, hehe.

    Oh, yes, I've gotten that comment... my response is "Yep! And it's wonderful that he picked ME out!" No return comments yet!

    I haven't had that one lobbed at me when I've been in a relationship, but I have heard it from OW with whom I've sought dates. I think I just kind of slinked off a couple of times and let the matter drop, but planning for the future, here's how I'd handle it:

    OW: "I'm old enough to be your mother!"

    Dave: "But you're not." *smile, with a hint of grin*

    OW: "Well, I could be!"

    Dave: "I already have a Mom. *smiles* But what I'm looking for right now is someone with whom to go out and have fun, and I rather think you're her!" *winks*

    . . .then, see where it goes.

    You're right, I am old enough to be his mother, but I assure you I'm not.

    yeah, how do you respond if his mother says it!!

    This is an anxiety producing one for me. My vym is an only child in a wealthy family and his parents are divorced. He lives with his mother, who doesn't know about me.

    At his invitation, I am going to spend this upcoming weekend with him at his house (his mother's house really) and I have never done that before. It's kind of weird, because she's out of town the whole weekend and will not know I was there or even involved with her son. Our relationship is new and I can understand him not wanting to tell her just yet, but I am really dreading it when she finds out! Plus, if she ever knows that not only am I shagging her son, and we are in love, but OMG in her house while she was away!! Man, I feel like this is high school all over again

    There is a 21 year age difference and I don't know if she's going to freak out and let me know I am old enough to be his mother! Plus, he lives in Paris and is french and I am American - don't know if this will add to my problem or not. Anyone have any advice on what to say to her, if and when?? I asked him how he thought she would feel about me and he said he didn't know, but wouldn't tell her for now. He plans to move out on his own, but Paris is soooo expensive, who knows when this will be.

    If someone said 'she's old enough to be your mother', I'd probably reply:

    'and?'

    then wait to see what they can come up with.

    I had someone ask me once...

    'is that your boy?'

    I responded

    'boy-FRIEND'

    I think the best response to that kind of comment was in How Stella Got Her Groove Back......

    The female bartender (in an obvious play for Winston) said to him

    'I'll bet you're really happy to see you mother'

    he responded

    'I am, I'll show you how happy'
    and proceeded to make out with Stella

    "You're old enough to be his mother!!!"

    NO, I AM NOT!!!!!!

    His Aunt, maybe. His mother's YOUNGER sister. But not his mother.
