25 Best Bits Of Dating Advice From Mom [EXPERT]
Nobody gives dating advice like mom!
When it comes to love, we could all use some motherly advice.

This Sunday is Mother's Day. So, in honor of mothers and mother figures around the world, here are 25 golden nuggets of motherly advice about your love life:

1. Be yourself. This is the most important piece of advice when you are single and dating. If you can't be yourself, then who can you be?

2. Never write down anything you don't want someone to read. I actually encourage this kind of writing, but if you really don't want anyone else to read it, keep it hidden, or get out the Zippo.

3. You can be anything you want to be ... unless, of course, you want to be inauthentic. Inauthentic is the worst thing you can be when you're single (or a human).

4. Pretty is as pretty does. If you're feeling like the wicked witch on the inside, your date will see it on the outside, no matter how beautiful you are. How To Get Along With His Mom

5. Make the best of it. A smelly or boring date is another chance for you to get clear on what you don't want.

6. Never learn to clean a fish or you'll be doing it for the rest of your life.  Slow down your walk, because if he doesn't open the door for you the first time, he probably never will.

7. Don't believe everything you hear. If he tells you he's slept with every other woman on the first date, don't believe him.
