Good Advice

Posted on | February 18, 2015 | 4 Comments

“Dost thou love life? then do not squander time; for that is the stuff life is made of.”
Benjamin Franklin

Time is most often squandered when we are young by postponing adulthood in favor of the irresponsibility of extended adolescence. Laura Triggs doesn’t think postponing adulthood is wise:

Take it from someone who spent all of her twenties dating. Finding lasting love is the best. If you’re in your twenties today and want true love someday, why wait? Start dating like a grown-up now and you are more likely to end up with one when the time is right.

Read the whole thing. Hat tip: Maggie’s Farm.

    Yes, get married young, and have kids right away, while you still have the energy to chase them down and make them stop whatever they’re doing wrong at the moment.

    There is a lot to be said about having a plan and goals of what you want out of life. Drifting to “find yourself” is rarely following your bliss. Because doing what you want still takes courage and commitment and hard work.

    And if you do want a family, you best get to it.

    In my perception, our society has made a dreadful mistake in constantly insisting that dating is “fun” and marriage is “the death of fun.” That nonsensical idea is why people put off getting married. It also leads to abortions. (“I’m not ready yet! Maybe later!”)

    And it’s absurd to think people can be sexually promiscuous and then suddenly one day transform into monogamous faithful partners. Faithful monogamy should be a constant state from the very beginning.

    If you were allowed to rob banks as a youth, but you were expected to work for your money as an adult, how would that make you view the concept of work?

    Dating should be the active hunt for a life mate, not a lot of dead ends that are just for kicks.
