Date My Mom features a guy (or gay guy/lesbian girl) who dates three different girls’ (sometimes men's) mothers. The guy (gay guy/lesbian girl) would date them one at a time, then after he or she dates all three of them, he/she chooses the girl/guy he/she wanted to date, based on the mom that he or she dated.
An 18- to 24-year old male (or gay male/lesbian female) goes on three separate dates with three moms, who try to convince them to pick their son or daughter to date. The dater only meets the mother and makes his or her decision solely on his/her impression of the mother and her descriptions of her child.
The dates are varied and are occasionally geared toward the dater's interests. The dates range from a simple lunch date to cheer leading lessons, washing cars, picking wild flowers, cooking, sports and even getting tattoos (usually depending on the person's likes and dislikes). At the end of the date the mother reports back to the child. The mothers and contestants tend to be very assured of their chances.
After all dates are completed, an elaborate beachfront finale is conducted. The dater explains to each mother why he has or has not chosen her child, and one by one the sons or daughters are revealed according to the person's liking.
