    Confusion need advice

    I met a woman through a mutual friend at a weekend get together. We had wonderful conversation and we planned on meeting this upcoming weekend or perhaps lunch early next week.

    She told me her daughter who is 34 would be accompanying us. (We decided on a lunch date). Is that normal? Does she feel threatened by me? I don’t know why she needs a nanny if we’re merely going on a date to get to know each other. Any help appreciated. I don’t know if I should tell her I would prefer a one on one date, no family members allowed.

    I think it’s fair for you to ask to go alone, unless there’s so valuable reason why she needs her daughter there. Some woman are best friends with there daughters, no matter how old their kid is. I suggest being honest but say it politely as to not hurt her feelings.

    Hmm, do you know when the last time was that she dated? Could be reason for nerves if she wasn’t someone to accompany her.

    I’m a woman and think this is a fair thing to ask. We’re more fragile to these things after not being in the dating scene so it’s tough to put yourself out there. I would at least ask her to be dropped off. If you’re in a public area maybe her daughter can still be in the area instead of just going home during the date.

    Thank you all for your advice. We went on the date before I could log into my email and see your responses but I thought I would update you all. In the end her daughter did NOT come. She had to take care of her little girl who unexpectedly got a really bad flu.

    The date was wonderful. Kind woman, warm heart. We discussed the possibility of her daughter initially coming and it turns out my date also didn’t like the idea. Guess it was her daughter’s idea.

    Well that’s good news. Now her daughter doesn’t have to worry about her, worked out in both of your favors.

    I am glad to hear that this date turned out well. Have you two met a second time?

    We did, thank you for asking. We’ve been in contact for a few weeks and have met only once after the first date. She has a part time job and I work a lot around my house but we’ve been friendly and call each other every other day to see how each other is doing. So far, a nice start to a friendship, she lives on her own and doesn’t do much away from family and work so I’d like to take her out again sometime soon. thank you for your kind words.

    I find it odd that she would bring her daughter.
