LOL!
I tried having a conversation with her on this but she insisted on taking her child, saying that the date "is already looking forward to it". I mean, really! So anyway, I just let her be. Apparently according to her, the date went so well and that he has invited both of them to his house for their 2nd date. So there is a second date coming up, apparently.

I still think it was a very unwise move to put a child in that situation however.

*Shrug* To each their own..

Initially, I thought, "Wow, it would be NUTS to bring a child on a first date!" But when I thought about it, I could envision some scenarios where it would probably be okay, such as the family picnic mentioned above. It should absolutely, positively be in a public place with other people around. That said, the fact that it's a first date and they "met" online is a concern. Also of concern is the fact that the woman has a nanny at home to care for the child, so she doesn't HAVE to choose between going on a date with the child or not going on the date at all. Kind of weird that she wants to do this.
The date was child friendly; they visited the Baltimore aquarium during the day and had lunch afterwards. However, I still think the idea of dragging your child to a date with a man you have not met face-to-face somewhat bizzare.

There is?! I did watch a movie last night (Raising Helen) with similar interactions at the time they met (because of logistics, though), but I didn't believe it could happen outside of the movies, unless she's waaaayy out of his league in many ways. I'm willing to bet that's the case.

I would not have a problem at all if she decided to do so. Her call.

BTW, Why would women think all men either do not like kids or are pedophiles? Really?

Some men do want to be fathers/stepdads.

I'm not sure why my friend thinks this is totally fine. She even had this wide, satisfied grin all over her face when talking about it. She says her date is very excited and looking forward to meet the child. I personally think the guy just felt awkward to say no, so he decided to go along with it.

Of course at that point I really didn't know what to say to her, so I kept quiet.

Hm. Has the date happened yet? I think he's gonna cancel.....

Sorry we hurt your feelings. I would rather be overly suspicious than not..

I don't know. What if they are just going to the zoo or to a park or something?
