Why do moms not want their daughter to date?

Ad

It is very common and even predictable for parents especially moms to be protective of their daughters which is why some would not readily allow permission for dates. The proverbial art of "holding on" and "letting go" or the "push" and "pull" balance in the relationship between parents and their children is something that is very trivial as well as challenging to achieve and master even with time. This is particularly difficult for moms who typically consider their kids as "babies" even when they have already grown up and matured.

Is she ready or responsible enough to go out unsupervised? Would she be safe with this guy? Do I know this guy enough to trust him with my daughter? These are some of the nagging questions that haunt moms when torn between allowing her daughter to go out on a date or not. It is also practically reasonable and even instinctive for moms to be protective of their daughters when going out on dates because of the alarming rise of dating abuse incidences, drug use, violence, and even teen pregnancies that could spring from a regular date. Also, the appropriate age for dating could vary depending on family, social, religious, and even cultural preferences

Guys who intend to date someone should go out of his way to visit her at home regularly where the parents will have an opportunity to get to know him better before personally asking the daughter out on a date. For parents, it would be wise to get to know the guy well enough (family, school, or social background) to trust him with your daughter when he asks her out for a date. It would also be very impressive if the guy asks the parents personally of their consent when dating their daughter. This means that he has no ill intentions with the daughter and that he is eager to work on gaining their confidence. Opening the communication ties with your daughter will help you protect her from harm yet also allow her ample space to socialize and grow. Inevitably, trust is earned. It takes real conscientious effort, patience, and honesty to gain a mom's trust but it's all worth it.

Questions to ask to my girlfriend's mom?

Keeping in mind that your girlfriend's mom once was also a girlfriend, you're best approach is pure honesty. Don't lie to her, and don't try to trick her or be overly flattering. Many times, a girl's mother may wish she had done things a little differently in her life, or enjoyed her freedom a bit more before getting married. That doesn't necessarily mean she might have wanted to date more. Rather, it means she might have wanted to stay in college longer (or attend college if she didn't have that opportunity). Likewise, she might have wanted to see the world, or experience new things, but didn't understand just how demanding being a mother was.

Because of this, almost every mother will appreciate any questions or discussions that involve what is best for her daughter. Don't be overly possessive, and avoid discussing marriage or things of that nature until you actually know the girl and her family well enough to honestly discuss that sort of thing.

Instead, ask your girlfriend's mom about plans she and your girlfriend might have. Discuss college, trips abroad, or her long term plans. Talk about things your girlfriend likes that you are interested in, and discuss things that she and her daughter like that make them both happy. Your girlfriend is the best source of advice on this. Ask her about what she and her mom used to do (such a finger painting as kids, or gardening). Then, you can arrange a surprise for both of them at a crafts show, or with roses they can grow, which we discuss in our article on propagating roses.

Your girlfriend's mom will love it that you're an interesting and divers young man, and also looking forward to getting to know her and her daughter better.
