This Mother 44 Is Called The Youngest Mom In The World, She Is Often Mistaken For Her Daughter’s Sister

Anyone who sees Joleen Diaz walking around with Meilani would think they are sisters because of their similar appearance. But when you’re told that Joleen is Meilani’s mother, your following thoughts would be that she had her young, hence her youthful appearance. Here’s the truth: Joleen Diaz is a 44-year-old mom and Meilani, her daughter, is already 21 years old.

Yep! They had 23 years of gap in age and people can’t believe that Joleen is already in her mid-40s!

The Californian mom shares she often gets DMs from younger men who think she’s still in her 20s or 30s. But looking so young had proven to be an issue for her in finding a suitable date because people keep accusing her of catfishing.

“I’m actually on Hinge, but I’ve had my account deleted several times,” she shared. “It’s funny; I think people think I’m a fake account and report me.”

Joleen broke up with her ex 14 years ago and moved away. She’s been looking for a suitor since then but hasn’t found one yet. Doing it through dating apps has proven to be challenging if she doesn’t somehow prove that she is not catfishing.

“I could link my Instagram to my profile, which would likely help prove that it’s really me, but I don’t do it because I think my social media doesn’t present the simple, down-to-earth person I am.”

“I’d like to be able to connect with someone and then explain my social media to them once they know me a bit more.”

However, she is not interested in dating a toyboy. She admitted, “I do get younger men messaging me on my social media.”

“The majority of the messages are very polite and most are very complimentary and positive about me promoting a positive lifestyle. They do ask to go out on a date, maybe dinner or a hike, but I know that this is just curiosity and not a real intent on pursuing anything more than the narrative they think of me.”

“When younger men ask me out on dates, I find it equally as flattering as men my age or older asking me out. I think it takes a lot of courage to approach someone and ask them to meet with you one-on-one.

“I think some younger men tend to fantasize a bit more about what it would be like dating someone older, where men my age or older are more pragmatic and looking for someone to enjoy simple things in life.”

“Age isn’t a deal-breaker for me, it’s about finding someone I’m able to help continue becoming a better person and growing, and them doing the same for me.”

“But I don’t want to date a toyboy. I would never even remotely consider dating someone who is young enough to be friends with my daughter.”

Joleen is very close with her daughter she often calls as “mini me” and would even go on double dates with her.

“When we are both seeing people, we will often go bowling, to the movies, hikes, to the beach. We haven’t gone on a double date recently, but she and I are very close, so we definitely will again.”

“Melani asks for my advice on dating all the time. I love that she trusts in the advice I give; I feel like she’s well-balanced in dating, and I’m glad my experiences can help her out.”

Joleen has an image of what her ideal man looks like, “I gravitate towards ambitious, motivated men, someone who is confident, has a positive outlook, and can communicate well.”

She continued, “They must be able to contribute equally, both financially and emotionally, in a relationship and they have to love dogs as I have a golden retriever. They also must love being outdoors and being physically active.”

Her secret to youthfulness? Active lifestyle and rigorous skincare routine!
