Son of The Date Doctor on Facebook

Matthew just had his 11th birthday! He is into many things including facebook. I look over his shoulder as he chats with one particular girl we will call Jill (only because Matt will not be happy if I use her real name). I keep chiming in with my dating tips and realize it is no easy task to be the son of the Date Doctor. And I remind myself he is 11! I should just let him be a silly kid. But still the tips seem to jump out of my mouth. The first 2 were especially for Matt but you should follow them as well. And the rest would be true for anyone who is both dating and on facebook. 1. When you log in, wait a minute before jumping on the chat. You may be excited to type "hey" in that little box in the bottom right hand...

A dating tip from a fifth grader

I overheard a conversation between my fifth grade son and his little friend who happens to have a big crush on him! She asked Matthew, "Why are you always running away from me?" And Matthew replied quite simply "because you are always chasing me." The message here is that when you are too available, it can be as annoying to a 10 year old as it can be to a 40 year old. Quite simply don't give up your interests, friends and hobbies because you might have an opportunity for a date with someone you are waiting to hear from. If they call and you are truly unavailable, they will call again if they are really interested. So don't wait around! Enjoy being you and that someone will only learn they may need to call and make plans a little sooner....
