Yi! My mom passed away seven years ago and my dad has started dating again. Although I'm very happy for him and really hope he meets someone nice, I'm a bit freaked out because he's coming to me for dating advice. The other night he called and asked when he should move in for a kiss, and if women still wait as long to sleep with a man as they did 30 years ago. I don't want to discourage him from putting himself out there but I don't want to be my dad's Love Coach! How do I tell him that? Thanks for the help guys! –Carrie
Slacker doesn’t want to be anyone’s love coach, but he feels like of bad for Steve. Steve never got to experience that point where your parents start to become your friend and Slacker got to an age where his parents started to share things to him. For him, it was way too much information and it’s hard to have a conversation with your parents that it’s too much to know. However, you wouldn’t want your parents to just Google that information, like when it comes to when you should move in on a kiss and so forth.
What advice do you have for Carrie?
First off I want to tell Carrie that I am very sorry for her loss! Second, although it might seem kind of uncomfortable, I would find it kind of cool that my dad would be coming to be for advice. I mean we all go through these things in life and I think if you can be that comfortable with your parents, it’s a very good thing!
