What would you tell your daughter about dating? - Page 2

Also, remember to trust your gut instinct. If the guy is rude to a waitress or even just has a creepy "vibe"....Run away from him.

The one thing I would add that I think is important-

be discriminating.

How do you really feel about this guy? Don't just end up with someone "ok" out of loneliness. You need to really like (love!) someone and think they are amazing to give them your heart.

But, I think it's ok to go out on dates with guys who are ok, take your time to find out what it is you are looking for. I have friends who think too much about finding a guy who loves THEM & who chooses THEM but they spend no time thinking about whether the guy is actually a good one who THEY CHOOSE. It's really not the way to go about things... and it's sort of how I ended up a young divorcee myself (and now here I am a few years later happily married to an AWESOME guy).

I think one crucial piece of advice is: if you fool around/have sex early on in a relationship, don't mistake those intense sensations for any kind of deeper emotion, knowledge or bond between the two of you. That sort of thing takes time and understanding to develop.

Also, decide how far you want to go physically beforehand. People make dumb decisions in the heat of the moment.

I frequently tell my DD "you deserve to be treated with kindness and respect at all times. Never settle for anything less."
