Love and Dating Advice from Kids

Spice up your love life with this dating and romance advice from kids age 5 to 10 (borrowed from the UC Berkeley Parents Network):

WHAT DO MOST PEOPLE DO ON A DATE?
“On the first date, they just tell each other lies, and that usually gets them interested enough to go for a second date.” (Mike, 10)

WHY LOVE HAPPENS BETWEEN TWO PEOPLE:
“No one is sure why it happens, but I heard it has something to do with how you smell. That’s why perfume and deodorant are so popular.” (Jan, 9)
“I think you’re supposed to get shot with an arrow or something, but the rest of it isn’t supposed to be so painful.” (Harlen, 8)

WHY LOVERS OFTEN HOLD HANDS:

“They want to make sure their rings don’t fall off, because they paid good money for them.” (David, 8)

CONFIDENTIAL OPINIONS ABOUT LOVE:

“I’m in favor of love as long as it doesn’t happen when The Simpsons are on TV.” (Anita, 6)
SOME SUREFIRE WAYS TO MAKE A PERSON FALL IN LOVE WITH YOU:
“Tell them you own a whole bunch of candy stores.” (Del, 6)

“Don’t do things like have smelly, green sneakers. You might get attention, but attention ain’t the same thing as love.” (Alonzo, 9)

WHAT MOST PEOPLE ARE THINKING WHEN THEY SAY “I LOVE YOU”:

“The person is thinking: Yeah, I really do love him, but I hope he showers at least once a day.” (Michelle, 9)

    I love it, but on a side note we had to stop letting the kids watch The Simpson when “Dumbass” became a part of their everyday vocabulary.

  3. Smirking Cat says:

    Some of the kids’ comments sound a bit fake (maybe some coaching from their parents or something), for instance, I can’t imagine a 6 year old talking like “I’m in favor of…” Still, some of these were pretty funny. And the candy store one is my favorite too!
