One of the things I’ve told my daughters to look for when they venture out into the world and date, you know: Men – is that not all of them are the people they’ll present themselves to be. Some of them will be good folks, and some of them less so. It’s really hard to tell the difference between the two while they’re trying to woo you. There are good men out there. But men can be swine.
I know from men.
Daughters: How do you tell the good guys from the users, dad?
Your Correspondent: Here’s a hint: When he takes you out to dinner, don’t pay so much attention to the way he treats you. He’s trying to impress you. If you want to know how he’ll treat you when the time for impressing you is over, watch the way he treats the waitress. That’ll show you what kind of person he is inside, whether his heart is in the right place, or whether he’s only faking it until he gets what he wants.
I think that’s pretty good advice.
