In her initial conversations and meetings with an Internet date, ask your mother to use just her cell phone (her home phone can easily be tracked to her home address) and to meet him in a public place. These 7 pieces of advice should serve as a starting point for the talk, or better yet, an ongoing dialogue with your parent.
Whether your parent is alone for the first time in many years or has been on her own for a while now, her desire to look for love is certainly understandable. Having “the sex talk” with your parents is admittedly a tricky proposition.

It’s one thing to say, “Mom, I heard you’re dating again.
Many years ago your mom or dad probably had “the talk” with you. By asking questions and listening more than talking, she shows her date she is interested in him.
Perhaps over your teen and young-adult years your parent(s) initiated many talks about love, dating, sex and the selection of a life partner. She also gets to know more about him to decide just how interested she is. To your parents’ distress, the ability to get an erection was probably never an issue for the pimply-faced teenager you dated.

Obviously regardless of age one can still get sexually transmitted diseases (although your parents may have referred to venereal disease, or VD, in their talks with you) and many unfortunately do. In the 2010 documentary film Catfish, the young star Nev Schulman discovered that the “attractive young dancer” with whom he had an online relationship was actually a middle-age mother of four.Creating online dating profiles helps consumers carefully consider potential matches.Likewise, evaluating a dating site before using it is essential, and it will bring you that much closer to finding a good match.I believe it’s about time we set aside the notion that you can’t give advice (sexual or non) to anyone who is older.
