Inelegant, but very true. Your daughter has a good head on her shoulders--you have taught her to be insightful.
Gosh, I love your daughter and I haven't even met her!I wish "grown-ups" could figure this out as easily as she did!My roommate is 26 and she told me she and her boyfriend just broke up. The next words out of her mouth were "I need to find a new boyfriend". You have no idea how profoundly sad that made me. I wish your daughter could sit her down and talk to her!
Ha ha .....Beautifully said lol.
Geo, as a general rule, we Aussies are very uncouth. For better or worse, it's a cultural trait.
I'd like to take credit for teaching her, but I suspect she has far more natural commonsense in that area than I ever did. All I can do is talk about my many mistakes and what I've learned and hope she actually listens to me.
Here's to keeping the lines of communication open.
Stillstanding, that's a lovely thing to say. Thank you. I can't believe she's 13 and has yet to make me really mad. Perhaps she's saving it ;-)
You know, I really relate to your roommate. Here's another gem (not from my DD) "the best way to get over someone is to get under someone else". Your roommate may enjoy that one ;-)
I've never been single for a substantial amount of time. In my case, it's worked out OK and I have a fabulous partner of 20 years. Howver, as a younger person, I always felt a strong element of not being comfortable on my own. My mother commented that in my teens I was much happier, more content and easier to get along with if I had a boyfriend. I wonder how that all works..
Aussie women tend to be more outspoken. Which is a breath of fresh air.
No, it's not automated. I was asked to fix it by the CMs
Thought about editing it, but it kinda lost the feel.
