Most Helpful Girl
Yes not just because she is my mother, but because we are very similar. My mum has loads of life experience and dating experience, and she knows what you need to make it work. She has given me lots of advice about the topic, not forced advice, just advice and I have chosen to take it on board.
For example, she told me that it is fine to 'mess around' or have fun with someone based on their attractiveness when you're young but just know that it won't work out in the long term if they do not have my desired personality. Also, she always places stress on the fact I need to find my intellectual equal. She says you will want to engage in intellectual conversation with someone who will challenge you, not just nod and agree with everything you say.2
