Dating is one of the most sensitive phases of human beings. The process involves learning about the likes and dislikes of your partner which requires immense wisdom.
One gentleman stirred a debate on Twitter after he reported his experience after taking his girlfriend’s younger sister on a date. Interestingly, he noted that the sister is only 12 years of age. The question of the morality of the matter arose on many occasions. While the gentleman’s intention might have been noble, many thought that he was not the right person for that.
The Right Time
But what is the right time to introduce girls to dating topics?
Young girls should decipher the need to set their dating boundaries early enough to protect them from abuse by men. While the whole scenario may seem inappropriate, it is a sure way of instilling dating discipline in the young lady. Moreover, the date would improve her self-esteem and help her learn to only engage people who approach her respectfully.
As a way to highlight the interest of the society in discussion dating matters, the gentleman’s tweet was shared more than 25,000 times!
From the reactions, people pointed out that the gentleman showed a caring attitude which was likely to positively alter the beliefs that the girl holds against men. It gave her the idea of the treatment to expect from a gentleman. As such, she’ll have a reference point when setting her dating standards in the future.
However, some followers felt that it was not his responsibility to teach the young girl on dating matters. They argued that the girl’s parents ought to raise her well and take up the role of guiding her on boy-girl relationships. When the girl realised that things were getting out of control, she came out to defend the sister’s husband saying that she enjoyed the date and that it was great!
