This evening

Tonight was the Christmas tree lighting in our little town park. Free clam chowder and mulled cider, and an appearance by Santa...and a big party for children at the community center.

It was snowing, big light flakes...looked like a fairyland!

GF and I went, and dd and her dh and Jai were there. So, they met GF. Invited us back to their house afterward, and we chatted for a couple hours. I am waiting to hear from dd to get her opinion...but I think he said all the right things. He is genuinely interested in people and is very kind. So hopefully....

What a perfect and delightful way for everyone to meet and get to know each other a bit!

( I liked your description of the snow falling. It puts me in a Christmas mood.)

Sounds like a Hallmark movie! I'm sure it will all work out and your family will have a wonderful Christmas.

Ok. Now I'm really confused. I've been confused but didn't want to ask because I didn't want you to think my post wasn't supportive. What does GF stand for in this case? None of the pronouns are matching up.

It definitely sounds like a Hallmark movie!

So dd just called. She says, He seems like a nice man. But hes not as cool as Pops.

No, of course not. And even if he were...hes still not Pops.

She says her dh liked him, and she thought he was interesting to talk to. She was surprised that he knows one of her friends who is a yoga instructor (he goes to her classes) and another friend of hers that he knows from the gym.

She says, It just seems weird somehow. OK, its still pretty weird to me too!

I think it will be fine. She was very close to her Pops, so it was hard for her to lose him. It will seem less weird as time goes on.

I am happy to hear things went well and that DD seems "accepting".

Even if her response wasn't 100% positive, I think this was a big step and shows progress. Glad you had such a nice evening.

Thank you for the "gentleman friend" explanation. I thought GF was girlfriend. I thought I remembered OP talking about meeting a male, so I was super confused.
