Well my mom is 71 and I don’t consider her an older lady at all!!! I’m sure you’ll be fine, just be yourself. Don’t psyche yourself out too much before you get there! I know its nerve wracking. My 15 year old was so nervous when she met her boyfriends parents for the first time, it was super cute! 

Good luck! Let us know how it goes!

Maybe it would be better for you to simply focus on meeting the woman who birthed the person with whom you would like to spend the rest of your life, while totally forgetting any notions of any facts not in evidence, least of all ageism.

Since I’m a whole lot older than that lady is, I’d be looking forward to meeting someone who had found a place in my DS’s heart, and I wouldn’t be caring the slightest bit about what you perceived as your own shortcomings. The important thing to OLD ME would be to be learning what it was about you that brougt you and my son to my home as the special person in his life.

SO- drop the ageism, look for what you like and have in common with this woman, find out something interesting about her, and tell her something interesting about yourself. Remember, by loving her son, you are already sharing feelings with her that are special and important in both of your lives.

tiffy127 :  Just relax. Don’t think about the age difference, think about how this is the mother of the man you love. Talk about your life goals and interests. Ask her about her hobbies and social activities. If you get stuck and can’t think of something to talk about or feel awkward at all, ask about SO’s childhood. Usually mom’s love reminiscing and sharing stories of when their children were young.

Her age has nothing to do with it, just relax and be yourself. She will love you because you love her son and treat him well.

I was nervous to meet my bf’s parents. I could have met them earlier but I was sweaty and wearing shorts after a run. I put on a nice outfit the next time and they could see how much I cared for their son. I built it up and it really was nothing bad.
