Yep. My mom started giving me advice after my parents' divorce. She's been married twice, and is recently engaged after dating someone for 8 years - she has him trained well :amuse: :P She has a lot of knowledge from experience, and so far I've found out (sometimes the hard way) that she's usually right.

well my Mum always said and she's still saying it, "make sure he really loves you - if you dont have love... where do you think you both will end up?"

i always think about that... i hope she's right because i really do believe - now that a relationship can totally survive on love... :love:

yes.

If he has a temper then run away and don't look back. Also, never let someone walk all over you. other than that my mom is very hard to talk about boys with, so I don't do it.

No, in fact this was the level of advice I recieved about sex/men:

Me (age 17) - "mom, I need some money for the pill, I'm broke".

Mom - "No, I won't support that".

Me - "well, I guess I'm screwed".

Mom - "well, I guess you won't be".

Ture story. :P (we are best friends now, this was a long time ago, and we both laugh about it today.)

Yes but their advice is an arranged marriage-like thing. A guy they want. Chinese and all. But I'm not attracted to Chinese guys although I have some as good friends.

Try this, my mom tried to talk to me about sex when she first visited me here when I left my country for college. That was the summer after my first year in college here. Ha! Living at the dorms was pretty much sex ed. I just told her I know everything even before she could ask more or go on.
