    @skieurope

    A lot of moms here would be glad to monitor and set you up on Tinder.

    Pay back... >:)

    D1 moved here after graduation and didn't know anyone. Met a guy on Tinder her first week and that was more than a year and a half ago and they're still happy together. You never know.....

    But D1 can't stand not having a good size group of friends around. If she doesn't know anyone, she'll find a way to change that. There are "meet up" groups posted all the time too (a bunch of us are playing frisbee in the park at 6 on Friday, come join us!) and she would gamely show up for all sorts of things even when no one else showed up the first few times. Persistence pays off in all things!

    I was hoping he would have at least one good date from his Mom!

    Cute story. Well written. The guy has a good future! Surely one of us has a daughter who's the appropriate age!

    That is the funniest thing I have read in ages. Weighing sending it to my single D... Edit: sent it with a note "Just to make your hair stand on end". I don't think she uses Tinder, but my niece does. I sent it to her, too. :)

    I am wondering how widespread is for CC parents to set up their high-achieving children with the children of other CC parents? There should be a thread for this purpose although the majority of the action is probably through PMs.

    Back in the old days (that is, my era) it was considered creepy to find someone through a dating site.

    Oh wait -- back in my era, dating sites didn't exist. Maybe I mean the personal ads.

    Regardless, now it's quite common and not at all "shameful." Just read the Sunday New York Times "Vows" section. It mentions lots of times how the couple met, and it's often through a dating site.

    We would need two threads.
    Moms and Dads of sons
    Moms and Dads of daughters
    Or maybe set it up by region.

    Have any of you set up your kids on a blind date? For example with some friends kid who you thought would be just perfect. Personally I don't want to set up dd with anyone. When it's meant to be it will happen.
    I am thinking of the movie, "My Big Fat Greek Wedding."

    My daughter got engaged in March. She met her fiancé through a dating app. She's quiet and not a bar/party/dance girl so this worked well for her. She texted back and forth with several young men and then met with one or two others before meeting her now-fiancé. All seemed very nice; one she had several dates with before they moved on. It turned out to be a great experience.
