So, my mom has been going on dates recently. Only about three, and they've all been with the same guy as much as I can gather. We don't really talk about the specifics of any of them. I just jokingly act like the responsible adult by asking "where are you going?" "when will you be home?" etc. I don't really know anything about the guy other than he has a puppy. I don't even know his name. My mom's going out again tomorrow night to some fancy ball-like thing that some organization has or something. I don't really get specifics other than where she's going.

I don't know why, but lately I'm just starting to not like my mom going out on dates. I kind of overheard her talking to her best friend on the phone about her last date (they went to the aquarium and then went to this tiny cafe near it or something) and she was saying how she didn't like that he automatically went to sit at the bar, even though there were lots of tables open and she said something about how he's nice but how she doesn't necessarily have chemistry with him (not in those exact words) and something about how there are a lot of nice guys. And I don't know. I shouldn't have eavesdropped, but I just don't like her going out now that she goes out so often. I mean, it's only been three times and then tomorrow, but I don't know.

My dad is now in Kansas. He'll be there for two months training before he goes over to Afghanistan. I don't like not seeing him. It's been three weeks now. I mean, I didn't see him every day with the separation, but now it's worse, since he can't even come out on the weekends or random days during the week.

This is really asking for help, I just needed to tell someone, since my best friend is currently unavailable, and you guys can relate to me more than anyone else I know. So yeah...

so it's not really the same, but my parents are constantly on an 'off again, on again' divorce. one day she she tells me she hates his guts and wants nothing to do with him (although her words are more choice words.. words ive never heard in my life!) the next day she talking to him on the phone and they getting back together. its like this everyday. literally everyday. i know its not the same but maybe talk to your mom about it. i know lately mine has become the most self-absorbed, selfish person in the world, but when she does hear the cold hards truth it shakes her up.
i dont speak to my dad, i refuse. he had an affair for a year.
maybe you could talk to your dad about this. not in great detail but how much it is affecting you.
its worth a try, and i hope it gets better for you.

Thanks for the advice. My mom actually just told me the other day that she stopped seeing the guy (his name turned out to be John), mainly because she found out he drinks too much. So that solves that problem.
I don't normally talk to my dad about feelings issues and stuff. I don't know, he was always just traveling a lot when I was younger, so I'm way more comfortable going to my mom when I want to talk about serious things.
Anyways, thanks again.
