    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.
