Teenage advice on dating
Saint John Paul II refers to the great dignity and mystery of the design of women as the “feminine genius” (Letter of Pope John Paul II to Women).
It’s no coincidence that the creation story in Genesis builds in beauty and is crowned with the creation of Eve.
Similar to the magnificence of Heaven, her worth can be likened to the “pearl of great price” that the man went in search of and gave up everything for (Matthew -46).
If we don’t know our own worth, then we may put ourselves in situations where we are looking for the guy taking us out to provide us with our sense of worth.
If the only thing you care about is what you're going to be doing on Friday night, dating someone who is worried about their life past high school just isn't going to work.This does not mean that every guy who asks us out will be up to the task.It does not mean that we’ll like every guy who does treat us well. That’s why the guy asks us: so that we can respond, graciously and politely, with either yes or no. I tend to believe that the majority of the time, if a guy is not asking you out, then there is a reason for it.It seems as though every teenager in today's age is always looking for love.As a senior in a public high school, and as a person that has spent almost 12 years of my life in the public school system, I can confidently make that statement.
Someone that can make us laugh and smile, and someone that we can make memories with.
