Out of the mouths of babes…

I was entertained last night cruising the web when I can across this article in the New York Post.  With all the experts in my field, I never would have thought we would be taking advice from a 9 year old.  Alec Greven is a fourth grader who apparently has done some research on the playground.  His new book How to Talk to Girls is now available nationwide.

Alec gives us advise on dating that tends to follow my own train of thought,  KIS…keep it simple.

  • Comb your hair and don’t wear sweats.
  • If you say hi and a girl says hi back, you’re probably off to a good start.
  • Control your hyperness and cut down on sugar if necessary.
  • A crush is like a love disease that can drive you mad.
  • Make sure you have good friends who don’t try to take the girl you like.
  • Class clowns never make a good partner.

Alec advises that pretty girls should be off limits:  “The best choice for most boys is a regular girl. Remember, some pretty girls are coldhearted when it comes to boys. Don’t let them get to you.”

In Chapter Three he writes:  “It is easy to spot pretty girls because they have big earrings, fancy dresses and all the jewelry.”  Poor Alec really has no idea what he is in for come high school.

I wish Alec all the best when it actually comes time for him to start dating.  As for the rest of us, well…we’ll just try to keep it simple!  If any of you really do need some help with your dating life I have just opened up my new page offering “Personal Services” for the more mature audience.

Good luck out there Alec!

    Well, being the mom of a 9 year old girl, I should think twice and maybe start asking HER on advise! :)
    As it is, she won’t hesitate on telling if what I am wearing or how I am acting is “embarrassing” for her!
    God Help the mother of Girls!
