We’re firm believers here in the ancient proverb that states “age ain’t nothin’ but a number.” Or was that Aaliyah?

Either way, May/December relationships are hardly eyebrow raising, but how would you feel if you were in your early 20s and your father only hit on guys your age? Your friends, even?

The line quickly blurs.

Such is the dilemma of one concerned Redditor, who recently sought advice from the interwebs.

He wrote:

“Sup bros? My dad is in his late 50s and he has a penchant for younger gaybros… And by younger I mean YOUNG… my age. I’m in my younger twenties. The other night we went to my friend’s restaurant. The owner is a good friend of mine who I went to grade school with…. My dad was hitting on him, hard. And it was making me feel quite uncomfortable. Apparently he goes to my friend’s restaurant a lot. I saw in his phone too he has all of these shirtless pictures of MY friend saved to his camera roll. This is really creeping me out. I also believe my dad has been helping out younger gay guys my age with college. I don’t know if they are having sex though. This is really concerning me and I don’t know what to do. I thought he was past his midlife crisis but now I don’t know what to think.”

We’d say Dad saving shirtless pics of your friends is a bit much, but maybe we’re just old-fashioned.

What would you tell him?
