Dating Advice for Young Women Starting College

Dear 18 year old me,

If I could go back in time and give you some advice about the young men you will meet, find attractive and sometimes date in the coming years, this is what I would tell you:

  • No one ever meets their dream guy at a theme park, so there is no reason to dress to impress when you are going to be riding roller coasters.
  • No. He's gay.
  • No. He's going to jail.
  • You are valuable, so don't let him try to buy you with gifts.
  • If you think he has a drug/alcohol problem, he does have a drug/alcohol problem.
  • You are worth his time and attention.
  • A guy with lines has used them before and will use them again.
  • Run from any guy who will not acknowledge you in front of his friends.
  • Just because he is a good kisser does not mean he is a good guy.
  • No. You cannot fix him.
  • No. You cannot change him.
Stay true to yourself. The ideal guy is just across the street coming your way sooner than you think.

A much older you
