What to say — and not to say — to your adult child
“Are you dating anyone?”
Christina Weber’s mom would often nudge her millennial daughter about dating. Weber, 35, was trying but grew tired of the dating apps she was using: “Fifty percent of the people lie and, 30 percent never leave their computer or phone to meet anyone in person,” she says. That prompted her to launch the Underground Unattached Curated Dating Experience, a company that brings together men and women in New York and Los Angeles for evening events and helps them to connect afterward.
Two years later, Weber’s mother still prods and tells her daughter that she is too picky.
Sound familiar? We wondered how parents might best offer relationship advice — solicited or unsolicited — to their adult children.
