Sylvia Sage Says It's Alt Right To Date Widower DEAR SYLVIA SAGE—For several weeks I have been having dates occasionally with. & widower who is 10 years elder than I and has two children. His wife died about five years ago and he has had a housekeeper to look after the children and his home. I am 25 and have been working as a waitress since I finished high school. My parents are much opposed to my dating this' widower. They say he only wants someone to look after his children and they think I should become interested in someone nearer my age. I have never dated a great deal as I am rather shy and have always felt self-conscious with men. But this man makes me feel at ease and we always have good times together. He is so thoughtful and kind and is much more polite and gentlemanly to the waitresses than many of the men who come into the restaurant.

I have two older sisters who both married younger men of their ages and my parents can't understand why I haven't. As I live at home it makes it more difficult for me to go ray own way and do as I please.

What they say is true — that he is only looking for a mother for his children? MAVIS, ANSWER - I definitely do think you should have dates with the widower if you are congenial. Probably he is trying to find a mother Jor his children. That Is a natural thing for him to do. But that doesn't indicate at all that he isn't interested in you lor your own sake. And if you like each other and enjoy being together, your parents should not Interfere. The association way not develop into romance and lead fo marriage but at least you have a right to enjoy .the man's companionship. Perhaps the reason you are so shy and self .- conscious is because your parents have /always shielded you and dictated to you too much. Assert your independence, not belligerently, but in a reasonable .way. It might be better for you if you could move away from home.'so you could act more independently. That may not be a practical idea for you but your parents should give you more freedom to plan your own life. Have a reasonable and frank talk with them. Explain to them why you feel mum age for the boy is also 18. MISS SAGE —- I wear screw- lype earrings but I lose so many .thai I wonder if It wouldn't be advisable lo have my ears pierced and wear the screw-type in ilie pierced ears. Can you suggest any other way I could avoid losing so many? ROBER- ANSWER — A new type of ear(ring is on-the market which is jheld in place with a tiny hinge and spring attachment. The b i g talking point for it is that it is much less apt to be lost than the screw-type. These arc too new to have undergone much,test but! you might try them.
