Can She Date This Man? – Other People’s Problems
On Other People's Problems, a woman has found the love of her life. But there's one thing that's holding her back from moving forward with this relationship.
Mike & Kate-
I need advice. I'm in a relationship but it's been a secret and it's time the secret came out. Neither one of us are married. We are both legal adults. We don't work together. The reason our relationship is a secret is because he is my best friend's son. She had her son very young. We are in our late 30s, he is in his early 20s. His mom and I have been best friends for the last 5 years. He was a teenager when we met. Nothing every happened between us until 6 months ago. I swear my life on that. But the attraction could not be denied. And for the last 6 months I'm the happiest I've ever been. His is a very mature man. His parents did a great job raising him and his father did an exceptional job teaching how to respect women. I was married very young and it didn't work out. I've been single since my divorce and basically gave up on love. Then I saw my friend's son out downtown one night at a restaurant and there was a definite spark. We started texting and that grew into dating. This isn't a fling. This is the real thing and he feels the same way. He doesn't want to have to sneak around anymore. He says he feels like we're having an affair. He wants everyone to know he loves me. My question is, how do I handle this with my best friend? Would you be supportive if your best friend was dating your son? I have been waiting my whole live to feel like this. But I worry that I'll lose my friendship over this. I don't ever want to come between my friend and her son, but you can't help who you fall in love with. Please give me some advice.
