Relationship Advice from My Dad4:22:00 PM
Father's Day around the corner, and I have been thinking about my dad recently. He may not realize it, but I have learned a lot about relationships from him, based on both his verbal advice, but also based on his actions. I never really started dating until college, but when I opened that chapter of life, my dad was definitely the first person I would call before and after each date. It was routine. Even if it was 2 a.m. I would call right after and say, "Oh my gosh, you won't believe what just happened" and, playing along, his response was "What happened!?" He listened. He would be excited for me. He showed empathy when I was disappointed. He and I have the same sense of humor so we always found a way to laugh about different dating situations. It's almost like we turned dates into Seinfeld episodes. It just worked. If you're in the dating scene right now, hopefully these principles will help you!
