Let me know what age you were able to begin dating.
(I was 16 when I was “allowed” and by “allowed” I mean treated like a criminal for going on dates with my very straight-laced boyfriend from school.)
Hidden Life Truths In Greek Language
Some of you may know that I’ve studied Greek for awhile. Today I noticed something about the language.
I noticed that in Greek, marriage means that you graduate from being someone’s boy/girl to someone’s man/woman.
Dating is for kids.
Dating Vs Marriage
- Το αγόρι της – her boy (her boyfriend) (Pronounced: Toh agoree teis)
- Ο άντρας της – her man (her husband) (Pronounced: Oh ahn-drahs teis)
- Το κορίτσι του – his girl (his girlfriend) (Pronounced: Toh core-ee-tz-ee two)
- Η γυναίκα του – his woman (his wife) (Pronounced: E yee-nay-kuh two)
Don’t Keep Adult Birds In Your Nest
Let your kids date while they’re teens so they’re not emailing me when they’re 25-45 years old talking about how they’ve never been on a date and they can’t muster the courage to talk to the opposite sex.
Don’t keep maturing birds in a nest too long because you love having to care for baby birds, because you’re controlling, or because you don’t like the idea of your baby bird having a nest of their own soon.
