What is your go to advice for teenagers considering dating someone?
“Definitely be confident in it. Get to know the person, you know, that’s the common theme, but also feel comfortable with them. You don’t have to force yourself to do what they always want you to do.
“Make sure that you know who you are first before you walk into a relationship with someone else.”
“Enjoy it as much as you can. It’s almost statistically unlikely to ever be long term. So you should see relationships earlier in life, not as long term, but as a way to build yourself as a better person and develop the skills and interactions, not just in romantic relationships, but in platonic relationships. You should build your communication and ability to interact with people. It’s not just the journey, it’s the relationship.”
