My mom and dad divorced about 10 years ago and while my dad has remarried, my mom has enjoyed dating and being single. She didn’t want the divorce but after the pain of the end of her marriage she embraced her new found freedom and embraced it a few times with some younger men, much younger men – men my age. I’m in my early 30’s and she’s in her early 50’s and doesn’t look her age.
One of those younger men just happens to be a good friend of one of the people I’m close with at work. There’s some chemistry between us the few times we’ve met and while nothing has happened, I’m intrigued and I know he is too, but I can’t help but think it would be weird and awkward to date him after my mom dated him. Oh, he doesn’t know that I know he dated my mom. We never met while they were dating, but my mom showed me some pictures of him. Do I just forget about him, or see where it goes? Should I tell my mom? And when should I tell him?
