my grandpa dates but were totally fine with it. i mean his wife passed away like 15 years ago and we know that he really loved her.. its hard growing old by your self.. he had dated a few that we could not stand.. but then he did date some ladies that we would really love to keep around but things just didnt work out. we always tease him about his new girlfriends and what not but we really do not mind him dating. seeing him happy makes us happy.

i think its a wonderful idea the grandparents are dating. im sure you have all herd the saying "everbody needs some loving." haha and well it really dosent bother me if my grandpa takes out a lady to dinner and a movie i think its really cute. my grandma doesnt really do that much dating. but remember some peoples grandparents are really not that old.. so its a bit diffent for some grandparents.

I think I'd be surprised, but then again, I wouldn't mind. They are adults, so why can't they date? Granted, we see our grandparents as being the fathers and mothers of our fathers and mothers and it's hard to see them seperated from eachother. However, I think if it works for them and it makes them happy, then all the more power to them as well, you know.

I don't have a problem with it, although i will be honest that I do feel a little weird seeing someone else other than my grandfather dating my grandmother, especially with how long they've been together. However, I know that in the end, they are both adults, and they can do whatever it is they want with their lives, so I'm usually okay with giving the new partner my blessing.

i say good for them! becasue everyone deserves to have someone they truely do care about and to have that other persons company until the day they die. so it doesnt matter how old or young you are dating is natural and everyone should take part in it

I've always known my grandma to be dating somebody...even my great grandma she's almost 100 and she was dating in her 90s until she got married recently. My grandma's been married 3 times...so you know how that goes. Its kind of weird because I would crack up when ever she referred to her now husband as her 'boyfriend' or 'man'...it was funny. Like hopefully when I'm that age I won't have a reason to want to date...thats just alot of stress to me. And you think at 90 the urge would be gone...but nope Great Gran's 98 and still kickin strong.

wow dating in your 90's lol i thought dating in high school was hard i could only imagine dating in my 90's.. there is really slim pickings and if you do finally find one you like then you have to worrie about how much longer you boo will be alive lets all face it once you reach your 90's the clock starts counting down and you have to worrie about dying..

I wouldn't care if they started dating. My grandma is a widower. And my other grandparents are still married. But if my widowed grandma decided to date somebody I'll be shocked at first but I'll be like go head grandma get it!!!
My grandma is fiesty and a flirt...she's always trying to hook me up with some one regardless if I have a boyfriend...her response is I ain't married. Man I love her. For all I know she's already dating someone.

same with my grandparents. except opposite they have ther own little relationships my granda works for the airlines so when shes down there shes alwasy going on little picnic dates with her " freind" haha

I'm all for it. Personally, I do feel a bit iffy, especially since I have known my grandparents and they've been together as long as I can remember, so it is strange. However, it is defiantely the same as if my parents divorced. However, in the end, as long as they're happy, that's what is most important.

none of my grandparents date, my moms side my grandma is widowed, and on my fathers side my grandparents are still happly married and going strong. my grandma on my moms side says she perfectly content having her family around her and that she doent need a man in here life. i am very proud of her for being confindent enough to not need a man in her life.
