Dating your friends mom

Whether we like it or not, most of us can’t help but think of “daddy” as a horned up name of sexualized affection as opposed to, uh, fathers.

Hey, nothing wrong with getting something about of calling your bae “daddy,” but I’m not going to pretend that I’m not a little thrown off by the utter saturation of a phrase “daddy” being used to seduce celebrities on Twitter.

I’ve always had an easy rapport with young people — my job, accompanying students on activity holidays demands it — and over the years I’ve ­welcomed Oli’s wide circle of friends into our home. But I’d have viewed as preposterous the thought that I could have formed a lasting and compatible partnership with any of them — until, of course, I did just that.

You should wait until you’re of age to actually act on that (and be weary of anyone older than you who wants to date you), but parents of friends should probably be off limits, right?

That hasn’t stopped loads of people for seeking the internet for advice on how to get their friend’s dad to notice them, or how to seduce their pal’s mom. Here are eleven examples from Yahoo Answers that’ll make you cringe like crazy.

So if anyone had suggested I’d fall deeply in love with my son’s best friend, I’d have been ­profoundly shocked. — and speed dating events are aimed at connecting moms, perhaps replacing old-school methods such as stalking other moms at the park, signing up for Mommy and Me classes and hoping for “playdate chemistry.” Jillian Darlington's son was two when her marriage fell apart, and she credits her network of moms with being her main support system.“I downloaded Tinder and saw the geo location factor and I thought, ‘Moms need this more than dating people do.’ We’ve always known making friends as an adult is harder,” she said.I’m even thinking about moving to another country because I don’t think I can be around them together.I’m an only child so I have no siblings to share my despair with. Since time immemorial, it’s an abomination to have a mother and daughter share the same boyfriend.
