Good Advice?

Recently on The Dr. Laura Radio Show, Dr. Laura was posed a question from a 21 year old 'Erica'. 'Erica' stated that she wanted more than anything else in the world than to be a wife and mother. She wanted to know how to go about telling her dates of her desire. Dr. Laura stated that she should ask them on the first date if they were ready to be married and support a family right now.

What do you think of this advice? And if she took the Dr.'s advice do you think she got many second dates?

As far as I'm concerned, Dr. Laura is an idiot. Finding someone to share your life with takes more than a simple question of whether they are ready to be married & support a family.

Dr. Laura is a quack, so her "advice" is comical, at best. I would think that asking a man on the first date if he's ready to become a husband and father right now is a surefire way to drive him away.

Notwithstanding the source of the comment, the advice is right. If your goal truly is to have kids quickly, I would prefer the lady to come right out and tell me that instead of deceiving me to avoid "driving me away." If she wants kids right away and I don't, then being driven away is the best thing for both parties.

My answer seemed rather long for the comment section so this is a simulcast for me. My response is up over at my site.

I think most guys in their early 20's would be scared off by this on a first. You should probably get to know a person first and let them know you before talking about long term goals like marriage and parenthood. I know somw people are more anxious for these things than others, but it's not a race.

I would calmly look into those beautiful eyes and say, "baby, are you ready to be a single mother."

That isn't advice. That's very comparable to saying "On your marks, ready, set, GO!" for a person to run quickly-in the opposite direction.

I'm in total agreement with Crazy Dan.

I would say with some certainty there would be no second date. It's terrible advice.

Crazy Dan - you rock :)That's hilarious.

WTF is Dr. Laura talking about?! First of all, the girl is only 21...what's her rush?! Probably not many 2nd dates. And I'm pretty sure she wouldn't get any sex either. Especially not when she pulled out the condom she was carrying with a hole the size of a pencil in it.

I've been that girl before. I've wanted those things. I've also learned that just because you want something...doesn't mean your going to get it.

My advice to anyone on the dating scene is to play it cool. Go into it not expecting anything. Just enjoy being yourself. Things happen when you least expect them too. And, it's worth the fucking wait.

Nope, no second dates. First dates are for all sorts of things, but they are not for making life plans. She'd scare anyone off, even a man who might be an excellent husband and father. Well, she'd scare anyone SANE off, leaving her with the lunatic fringe from which to choose a father from her child. Lovely.

She's 21! Why is she in such a desperate hurry at twenty-one? She has a whole lot of years before her in which to grow up, find a partner who suits her in more than this one way, and start a family. April is absolutely right: there are lots of reasons to marry someone - this is only one, and shouldn't be the primary one.

As a man, I find it completely ridiculous because it's so unrealistic. I have mental illness and am on disability. Almost every woman to whom I revealed this, especially on the first date, dropped me like a hot potato!

So this is my advice: Whether you're male or female--never reveal such personal information, until you are certain it won't scare your potential lover away. And if you are never certain--never reveal it! Even if asked something, directly--change the subject, lie, or even respond by saying, "Why do you ask?"

I was corresponding with a woman, via e-mail, recently, when she asked me, "What do you do?" I told her that, for a woman to ask a man about his employment status--that is the same as if a man asks a woman if she's pretty!"

I don't know how many potential lovers I've lost because I told them too much, too soon!

Wait until he/she is madly in love with you, before volunteering any personal information. It's none of his/her business, anyway!
