On Dating: Helping Our Children Find Mr. or Ms. Right - Part 2

[This is the second installment in a series of posts based on great ideas, thoughts and inspirations we have read and collected on dating and that we have been trying to transmit to our teenagers and young adults since their pre-teen years]

Another couple of short speeches to be dosed out and repeated with prudence, but insistently and age appropriately:

"God has chosen who will be the perfect match for you since the beginning of time. He or she already exists, there is a mom and a dad preparing him or her for you. You will start dating soon and you should aim to find the one,  that only one, the one chosen for you."

"There are a lot of great people that you have met and that you will meet: fun, smart, gentle and kind; everybody has something that maybe catches your attention. In all cases you should always ask: Is this one the right one for me?  There is only one that will be the best fit for you, that matches your style, your upbringing, your values, that makes you laugh, that gives you joy, that brings you peace. Pay attention and aim as high as you can. You deserve the best of the best, so don't settle!"
