What is the one word of caution that you would tell

your daughters about men and relationships?

I tell my daughter not to put to much hope into a man or a relationship because the more you expect, the worse the disappointment.

  • I'm going to tell my daughter she needs to taste lots of different kinds of ice cream. LOL! She doesn't need to get hooked on the first guy that likes her.

  • i will tell her that choosing a partner/spouse is the most important desicion you will ever make
    also, be sure to keep yourself independant, and always be able to support yourself-just in case
    trust your instincts, that is why we have them and do not make excuses for other persons actions
    you are responsible for your own actions, do not make someone elses issues your responsibility

  • If he tries to change you, he doesn't love YOU, he loves what he wants you to be.
    Not everyone is always right about who you should love, but if more people hate him than like him, take a step back and look at the whole picture, don't just be blinded by the twiddlepation, b/c that wears off.

  • I guess I would just tell her not to jump in to fast. Take things slow and if he is interested he will stick around for the long haul.

  • Know with you heart not your emotions that he is the one for you . I would hope that over the time raising her that my husband and I place respect. Showing her how a real man treats a woman . I want her to value herself more then the othere person keeping God first in her life , herself, and then others.
