Good Boyfriend

For as long I can remember, young girls have been kind of looked down upon by the rest of society. It’s not that young girls are seen as bad, not at all, but they are usually seen as “not the brightest of the bunch”.  Now, before you start writing those comments, let me just tell you why I feel this way through my own experiences.

As a young girl it was normal for me to get told, “Just sit back and look pretty”. This simple line was said to me by multiple male, and at times, female role models: my parents, siblings, a number of friend’s family members, and even a teacher. It’s not that I was a stupid child, quite the opposite, but these people just always thought that I had nothing important to say.


And one of the main topics that young girls are taught that they had business in talking about is dating. I remember being told that I was to young, to inexperienced, and to “air-headed” to have any real opinion on dating or men.

But these two young sisters,  Brooke and Blaire Daniels, decided to go against the stereotype, and together created a list of 31 rules for being a good boyfriend and, may I say, they are very accurate. Read this great list and see which ones are true to your experience with men.

Warning: The similarities between the list of little girls and yourself may be shocking.
