    am I the one who wants to cry? He said she was getting to clingy lately. They were so cute together and she was sweet. At least it happened after homecoming. [​IMG] Im so bummed. Maybe I need to go eat some leftover Halloween chocolate.

    I have been the same way. My son has had two GF's that I've let myself get attached to. Now he's starting to hide them from me. [​IMG]

    We were just talking about her on the way home from school. I was asking him if he wanted to invite her to Thanksgiving. Next thing I know, his FB status says "single". He was saying yesterday how he was really starting to like her. Oh well, the joys of being 15...

    The key is to not express how much you like them. You like them, then obviously this is the wrong girl cause obviously all you want is for them to be completely grown up and miserable. Mine are not teens yet but we went through this with the nephews. Quickest way to get rid of the gal we all hated was to invite her to lunch and tell him how nice she is and what fun it will be to have such a sweetie in the family. The gal was usually gone within the month. ( don't feel to bad for her, she was 30 years his senior and an alcoholic pothead. Man was that a long lunch)

    I'm in the same boat. my middle daughter started dating a slightly older guy who just turned 18.. Very very respectable fellow. Never had a dad so it became a habit for him to stop down and ask me advice about this or that. Guy lasted 2 or 3 months. Liked him, but daughter being slightly younger fell head over heels over some new kid she met at school. Asked my wife to break it to me that she wasn't going to be dating him anymore [​IMG] like I was being dumped [​IMG]

    Yep, you need some chocolate! Or a quart of ice cream.......He's soooo young......it's probably a good thing because getting too serious too early can be a BAD thing.....

    The trick is to always be polite; let your child know that they are always welcome to invite their girl/boyfriend to dinner or family events. When a specific occasion is coming up, ask if they would like to invite the friend or not; make sure they know that the invitation is being extended because the person is important to your child (definitely NOT because she or he is important to YOU). Then the choice is theirs, and they know that the invitations will be there whomever they choose.

    Dating is to try out new people; see how you mesh with different personality types. You really don't want him spending the rest of his life with the first person he started dating at 15, do you?

    We've been through a variety of boy & girlfriends between all six kids, and some were better than others, but almost all were pretty decent kids.
