Dating Someone That Has the Same First Name As YouThat was the question I had to ask myself two years ago when a guy who was interested in me asked me to go out with him again. At first I was excited. But there was a huge problem. I loved my dad. He was my emergency contact, personal ATM, cheerleader, and source for advice. Ten days after my college graduation, his psycho ex-girlfriend killed him in a murder-suicide and I was utterly devastated. It was just too weird.
Well I don't refer to my mom by her name. She's just mom. Mentally, the name is only slightly connected to her. I connect other girls with the name first before I think of my mom.

My mom is refusing to let me see my dad because he's dating a woman she doesn't know (my parents are separated).
I don't see how it would be a problem. It would be a little weird though considering I'm named after my dad.

My wife and my mom share the same middle name, if that counts.
If I had plans to marry them in the first place, I can't say it'd bother me much. Pirate This.
I don't know why this question has been floating around my head recently. But I have been pondering if I could do it. I really don't think I could. W.

Yeah sure. In my case it would be my fathers name since I dont have a brother. No way. It's just too weird.
I have posted this exact thread with the same answer I am about to give I could never been in Yeah, my long-time girlfriend has the same name as my older sister. Its really not a big deal I really don't think it'd bother me On the flip side too, how often do you call your mother by her name? THAT would creep your girlfriend out.

Then that's a very shallow or mentally challenged person you decided to hook up with. Who would name a lady Doug? That's weird. It wouldn't bother me at all if she had my moms name. I would just be excited to finally have a girlfriend.
I couldn't care less what her name was. Most people have little nicknames like honey, darling, or sweetheart so it's possible it might not even come up all that much. My girlfriend of two years, three months, has the same first and middle names as my mother.
It was never an issue beyond the first time we learned of that fact. At that time I commented that is was quite a coincidence and she asked if I found it weird.

We talked about it. I did not. She did not. So, that was the end of that. Actually, at family gatherings, sometimes there is a moment of levity when another family member says their name and both of them perk up and reply.
Then the family member exclaims, 'bah! I forgot you two had the same name', and clarifies.
I wouldn't particularly care, seeing as I typically call my parents "Mom" and "Dad" and don't really associate them with their actual names. I might have problems dating someone with the same name as my sister, though.My Dad Has Two Families... And We Are Not The First One!
Though so far no perky blonde appeared out of nowhere. I think I could??? I'll never have to find out anyway because there's no girl that shares her name.
At least in this country. I don't see why not. I don't call my parents by their first names. Now, if I wanted to date a girl that was named Mom I call my mom, mom. I've never called her by her first name so it wouldn't be any problem at all. Asker's rating. No i don't think that's weird. Jim is a common name. And since he has the same name as your dad maybe your dad will like him more.
And i'm sure you don't call your dad "jim". It might seem a little weird to them because they're looking at it from a different point of view. But it's okay.
