I Put My Mom on an Internet Dating Site

My parents divorced over 2 years ago. Probably for the best. When my father cheated and learn to text girls, their relationship is starting to break, that leaves my mother devastated. They weren’t getting along too well, and their 3 kids already left the house years before. My dad is not always a ray of sunshine.

And so I told her, “Mom, I’m putting you on the internet for dating.” She protested, saying she’s not ready for that right now. I didn’t care, I went to her computer, found a decent picture of her, uploaded it on Jdate, and announced my mom to the world of retired old jewish guys. “Now Mom, write a description of yourself”. Well, she’ll have to write that herself, I do have my limits. “Now Mom, go on a bunch of dates, meet people and have fun”.
