The Differences of Dating “Bois” and Grown Men
I don’t know if it was one too many mosquito bites from this weekend but I’m a little under the weather today. Okay, enough with the whining.
This post was inspired by a friend from elementary school who posted the following meme on her Facebook Wall about the differences between girls and grown women when it comes to dating and relationships. I thought it very powerful and telling of how mature people behave in relationships, and deserving of some thought from those of us looking for love.
I thought about changing the wording to bois and Grown Men, but what’s described transcends gender and speaks more to maturity and self-esteem. Take a read for yourself.
