Bringing Sexy Back: Knowing When to Say When

Hot mamas may get their groove back once they are single again, but when dipping back into the dating pool, is there ever an area that is too shallow, so to speak? For example, if the mother was giving birth at the time that her boyfriend was being born, is he off limits?

My son is 19 months old, and the thought of a woman my age dating his fellow tots in the future makes my stomach churn. Evidentally, this isn't the case with 48-year-old Linda Hogan, who is seemingly smitten with her new boy kitten, who is 29 years her junior. Charlie Hill, 19, is a former classmate of the bleach-blond mom's children Brooke, 20, and Nick, 17.

Should a mother give up her love interest if the age difference makes her kids uncomfortable?

Yes, definitely. 19 is way too young for a 49 year old woman. What could they possibly have in common? And if this relationship makes her kids uncomfortable she should let it go. It's just gross and I can't imagine how humiliating this must be for her kids. I wonder what went wrong in this family because everyone is everywhere and no one seems to be thinking about anyone else but themselves. Sad.

This whole family just grosses me out. Hulk is dating a woman who looks just like Brooke, and Linda is dating her children's classmate... Yuck.

It wouldnt bother me personally, and I think that if your children are grown and out of the house, you can date a younger person. Its only creepy to me, if you knew the guy/girl when they were growing up.

Way to box people in. You should date people because they interest you, not because of their age range. Brooke and Nick have a right to their opinion, sure, but it's not their relationship. Linda is not hurting them. Perhaps they should grow up and realize their mothers life does not revolve around them completely.

I am sorry but I could never date someone that is the same age as my child. I just couldn't do it. If it makes her happy yeah for her but no way for me!

a mother should never be with someone that makes her kids uncomfortable regardless of his age.

Wow. How very, very sexist. "Parent" would be much more appropriate than "mother" in this question (or does the OP really think that it's okay for dads to do this but not moms?). My mom left my dad when I was 21, and a couple of years later when he was finally recovering and ready to re-enter the dating world, he asked me if it would bother me if he dated girls my age. I thought, "Well, my dad's turning into that creepy old guy who's always hitting on me, but hey, whatever makes him happy." and told him it was fine by me because I'm not a selfish spoiled little brat. Interestingly, it turns out that the younger girls were the ones throwing themselves at him -- tons of fun to watch when they didn't know I was his daughter and we were out together.
