I was talking to my 17 year old niece today at a family gathering and she's in love. It reminded me of my dating days. I told her that my mom rarely gave me boy advice. I can only remember three occasions that she spoke up.
1) Never date someone you wouldn't marry
2) Don't marry a lazy man
3) It's harder to wait when you're in love
My niece told me that the best advice she received was to guard her heart.
As we were talking, Robin was asleep in my arms. I wondered what kind of boy conversations we'll have in the future.
