What Mom Told You About Men

Maybe your mom's the first person you dial with a dating dilemma. Maybe you'd never want her to know the details of your love life. Either way, we bet she has offered you some strong opinions about men — whether you asked for them or not. Looking back, do you wish you had listened when she told you to never date an artist? Was she right all along about never going to bed angry? Did she tell you to "play hard to get" — and do you? In the spirit of the new movie Because I Said So, starring Diane Keaton as a meddling mom and Mandy Moore as her looking-for-love daughter, spill your stories here! What is the best — and the worst — relationship advice your mom has ever given you? Share your favorite stories right here, then chat with other iVillagers on our message boards!
