Twenty-seven NFL players have been arrested this year alone. Yet stupid women seem to be attracted to these criminals. Since we live in a culture that esteems style over substance, parents your job has become even more crucial to help your kids sort through the swill of society so their lives don’t get sidelined. Who they choose to date, especially in regards to your girls, can have long term detrimental effects if they get hooked up with a looser. It’s no time to withhold your advice. Here are some points I made sure my girls understood before they hit their teens.
Here we go dad, give your girl the following words of wisdom . . .
Number One: Get Focused.
The first step to avoid the date from hell is get focused and filled with purpose.
Look ladies, if you enter into a relationship rudderless, like a needy parasite, you will become the slave of whatever host you hitched yourself to.
Girls get freaky when they don’t have much going on in life. They try to over please, which is cool for two to three weeks for most guys, but then it gets a little nerve-gratingly old. Yes, the desire to please when motivated from need can get whacked.
So again, the first step to avoid the date from hell is get focused and filled with purpose.
Number Two: Use Your Head Freak Girl.
Ladies, the key to keeping your pretty feet tethered to the planet when you roam out into the dating Serengeti is . . . (drum roll, please) . . . to think! God gave you a head, so use it. Get a grip. Try to stay sane, girlfriend, so that romance doesn’t eclipse common sense.
If you find that you’re having problems using your noggin, do these: first, keep your hands off each other ‘til your brain catches up with your body. Second, don’t blow off family and friends, because they can help you see through the veil of crap that most bad guys hide behind.
Number Three: Repeat After Me: “Opposites Attract” is BS.
Y’know, finding someone like-minded doesn’t sound as sexy as dating the brooding, in and out of jail, melancholic, mysterious, exotic wannabe rebel flute player for a Beatle’s cover band who needs your breast to lie on in order for him to make sense out of life. Yes, ladies, if you’d like to have a successful relationship with longevity, you’ve got to realize that compatibility, not fantasy, is the key to the kingdom.
Number Five. Know When To Tell Him to Back Off.
Another great way to avoid dating some yard ape is to erect massive boundaries around your life. Have who you are and what you’ll tolerate so solidly defined that all goofy guys can read it and weep.
You’ve got to stay guarded, girls. Let the guys call you stubborn, selfish, holier-than-thou, unfeeling, unyielding, un-beholden and unloving when you stay in your values corner.
Number Six: Don’t Move in to His Crap Apartment.
Don’t move into a guy’s house. This equals loss of authority. This is a stupid move. Why does this act equal dumb squared? Well, you give a dude all the perks of being married without any commitment. And that’s what the date from hell loves: zero commitment.
