Mother Appeals For Girlfriend For Adopted Son
Has she done the right thing or should she stay well out of it?

She should stay well out! If he wants a girlfriend, I'm sure he can fine one himself (Perhaps he could start by shaving)

Good job there aint too many mothers like that

I read this yesterday and it raises all sorts of privacy issues - will she go online next when he does manage to have sex for the first time? Sex and
disablement is a thorny subject and at least she recognises it as normal but to go to the papers was a step too far imo.

I knew it was my mothers fault.

Hmm... If I were her, I would never advertise for a mate or sex for my son. However, I would help him get involved with a social group with people
with disabilities like himself...

I would just get him doing normal things, I wouldn't keep him segregated at all, and certainly not wrap him in cotton wool and s/mother him.
BobbyKatLittleCub - 18-3-2009 at 03:06
That's not what I meant at all... I am multiply disabled myself, and would feel more sociable talking with people that are more like myself, I did
not mean to totally segregate him from everyone else or keep him from other social or other activities, and I certainly would not wrap him in cotton
wool and s/mother him.
I'm tired of being attacked when I post my opinions. I'm done here.
Daz - 18-3-2009 at 09:33
I was giving my opinion/thoughts/whatever. I was not attacking you FFS.
I'm sorry you took it the wrong way, but I'm not sorry for my post, because I didn't "attack you".
Great start to morning eh...!
Quaver - 18-3-2009 at 12:28
We won't know how the mother feels unless one is in exactly the same position as her. But I stand by my comment of getting him a shave
LSemmens - 18-3-2009 at 14:14
In making the OP, I certainly wasn't attempting to cause anyone offence. Like most, I felt that it was one line that the mother should not have
crossed. Help and encourage him to meet someone but certainly not become the "matchmaker".
LSemmens - 18-3-2009 at 14:17
On re-read, I suspect that BobbyKat took your comment as addressing her because you quoted her. Had your reply been alone, it may not have been
interpreted as such. Just a thought.
marymary100 - 18-3-2009 at 17:04
I hope that BobbyKat and Daz will resolve this themselves without our intervention/interpretation
Daz - 18-3-2009 at 21:18
I PM'd her/him this am and apologised, and explained t'was not my intention to offend him/her, and offered an apology for causing any upset, but not
for my post...
I can do no more than that....
I guess Leigh does have a point. Rather over sensitive though, if you ask me.
marymary100 - 18-3-2009 at 21:23
Thanks for trying.

I totally agree. By all means try to involve him in social groups where he is likely to make friends and maybe find a girl friend, but that is as far
as she should go.
