In fact, she was (and still is) quite beautiful and nice, and many younger men asked out my mom during this time, not realizing that she was already in her mid-30’s.The fact that she frequently exercised in order to maintain her cute body helped attract a fair amount of men.
Anyway, my mom had been fixed up with Trey, a (cough) used car salesman, by one of her married friends.
I remember thinking what a curious match for her- a used car salesman.
Since my mom is a lawyer, I always figured someone with more education would be most ideal for her.
Actually, I don’t remember her dating at all until Trey came along.
I’m certain that she grieved for my dad for way too long, which explains my extreme happiness when my mom came home from work one day and informed me that she had met a new man.
I remember that day vividly because I was always concerned that my mom would be alone for the rest of her life.Now, I should explain that my mom wasn’t ugly or a bitch or anything.My mother introduced me to her boyfriend, Trey, for the first time when I was 18 years old.It was the beginning of my senior year in high school and I was pretty innocent in many ways.Even though I had started to date by that time and even had tried sex once or twice, I was a pretty naïve teenager.Mom and I had been alone since my father died when I was 9 and since then, she hadn’t dated much.
