Do not be responsible for hardening a woman’s heart. Get to know her family & friends and let your family & friends get to know her. Perform acts of service for her; make her breakfast, take out her trash, offer her your jacket when she’s cold, you get the point.
— Dear Son, Dating is a tricky thing and doing it right is difficult. And who your wife is will determine your future family and so forth and so on. Here are a few expectations I have for you when it comes to dating: 1. You should always make sure you take her to a place you know she will feel comfortable & enjoy.
But it is honestly, the most important thing you will ever do.
And always walk your date to the door at the end of the night.
As much as I want that lucky girl to be the perfect girl for him, I also want him to be prepared for her. Your father & I will make sure you always have money for your dates.
I recently stumbled across this love note from Sara to her young son.
I begged for her to come guest post as it is simply the best advice a mother could ever give her son concerning dating.
It’s everything in my heart, magically put perfectly into words. If that just isn’t possible then ask over the phone. None of this “let’s hang out at my place & watch a movie” nonsense. It doesn’t have to be fancy or elaborate or immensely creative.
So the longer you date a person, the more you should get to know her.
The best dates involve getting to know the other person so take your date somewhere that will allow you to talk. The purpose of dating is to find someone you could spend your future with. Once you’ve found a girl you are interested in and going exclusive with, be faithful to her. If you decide things aren’t working out or you meet someone else you’d like to get to know, refer back to rule #8. Going too far physically only confuses the relationship & it can never be undone.
And if you are feeling a connection then let her know. It will make the whole dating process easier if you follow this one simple rule. Date around, but only seriously date one girl at a time. Hold hands, put your arm around her shoulders or eventually her waist, kiss her head, put your hand on her knee, these sweet gestures speak volumes & make a woman feel cared for.
It may hurt her for a minute but she will appreciate your honesty.
