As any Mother of a teen daughter will tell you, the era of boyfriends brings with it a whole new nightmare to the plethora of teen issues.
When my daughter first told us that she was interested in a boy and that the boy felt likewise about her well....read for yourself..I posted about it two years ago.. in post-->Mom, there's this boy
Well, as it turned out her Dad and I were happy with her choice of very first boyfriend. We felt we dodged the bullet that seemed to hit so many of our others friends. They had to deal with disrespectful, lying, manipulative Daughter's boyfriends. We felt blessed that we did not have that same experience.
He was kind
He went to church and even attended our church a few times
They followed our rules and he acted like a gentleman
I knew it wouldn't last.
They had a good run.
They even went to junior prom together.
I knew his Mom and she knew me...but right before the start of this school year they got together and decided that they were better off as friends...and so far they are. Quite frankly they make older people who have nasty break-ups look like idiots.
I have to admit I was a bit heartbroken when I was told the news.... and it was not only because I thought so highly of this young man...
Its because I'm dreading future boyfriend #2 !!!!
Maybe he'll have a nice personality
