What would you do if…

Your 48 year old mum is widowed and lonely. It makes you sad because you want her to find love and happiness; so you get an idea to introduce her to your boss- a 53 year old divorced executive who is sincere, hardworking and wealthy.

You invite your mum to a party organised in your office, and you take the opportunity to introduce the two of them (mum and boss) to each other. They share a handshake, you smile and go your merry way, hoping it would blossom into love.

24 hours later you ask your mum if she likes your boss and if she got his number. She smiles, nods and says she’d be visiting him at his house.

You are happy. This is playing out perfectly!

One month later, your mother tells you she is finally dating someone. You are elated because you are sure it is your boss. They have finally started dating!

Hmmm! But you are wrong!

Your mother tells you she went to see your boss at his home but met his 30 year old son. There was instant chemistry the minute they looked at each other. The father (your boss) was not home, so the son urged her to stay and they connected!

They have been keeping in touch since then. One month later he asked her out and they are now dating.

Your 48 year old mother is dating your boss’ 30 year old son.

How would you feel? What would you do?

    Firstly,let’s enlighten ourselves that there are three things that doesn’t and not suppose to determine love;age,race & religion.
    Having said this,still there should be some considerations for modesty and courtesy,most especially for this case in question;if your mum hadn’t met your boss,before meeting his son,it would have been on a neutral ground,there wouldn’t have been anything wrong with that,because definitely there must have been something visible and electrifying in your boss’s son that electrocuted your mum’s emotion,but even at that,the prerequisite is faulty,meanwhile you didn’t tell us how deep they have gone with your boss from the first day they met,to warrant that visit anyway,as the depth would also have a pact in our decision,who knows whether from the very first day she made her closed door known unto your boss or not,but i doubt as much,because at that she wouldn’t have thought of that visit,but coming home to think of it,she was known lonely as we’re made to understand,and that could be enough reason for the visit,and on getting there,she got a better offer,perceived more energetic,vibrant,up-to-date,fresh,more romantic,as in someone that could expose her to new beauties of love,or may be uttered some statements that aroused her dying or dormant aspect of Eros i supposed…..Everyone opts for the better you know!
    Summarily,it’s only the process that’s faulty,the idea of that age difference shouldn’t be over emphasized.I submit.

    Love they say is blind, if the young man finds pleasure in somebody that can have him as a son, so be it.

    Too bad cos this will affect the relationship btw her child & her boss at the office, only God knows how far she have gone with the boss b4 coming to seee him at home, the poor man when he hears about this will be devastated & will never aprove of that relationship. Inshort that old woman no matter what she feels should put so many things into consideration b4 she crumbles all that her poor child have worked so hard for so many yrs plus her good relationship with her boss into pieces with that her so called aboki love. & mind her that old man maybe more energetic than the son. Not how far but how well. Tnx
