Thoughtful Thursday – Date “Line”



Dear Abby:  I found the following in an old textbook in a thrift store.  I want the boys who will someday date my granddaughter to read it, believe it, and live by it.

This is My Date “Line”

  • The parents of my girlfriend place their trust in me.  I will not violate it.
  • I will respect my girlfriend as I expect other men to respect my sister.
  • I will respect womanhood because my mother is a woman.  I will ask my girlfriend to do nothing I would be ashamed of if my mother found it out.
  • My girlfriend has given me the honor and pleasure of her company.  It is wrong for me to expect more in payment for this date.
  • My girlfriend will be a wife and mother someday.  She must be an example to her children and the pride of her husband.  I will help her to be as pure and decent as I want my wife to be.
  • Manhood means strength of character as well as body.  Lack of self control is a sign of weakness.  I want my girlfriend to know that I am manly.
  • God is everywhere, sees everything, knows everything.  Darkness may hide me from people, but it cannot hide me from God.
