Jennifer Degler, Ph. I used to tell my daughter that she could start dating after she got married. But despite this admonition that made complete sense to me, our daughter, like all kids, did develop crushes on several boys in elementary school, alerting us to the impending arrival of dating. In addition, we said that they would need to direct their heart elsewhere if they became attracted to a non-believer. They have non-believers as friends, but the people you pull in closest to your heart should be like-minded about Jesus.

I can’t set you up with the right guy, but I can give you some pointers about getting back in the game. Several months after my husband and I separated, it finally occurred to me that I was free to date. It was a concept both thrilling and terrifying. The last time I’d been single, I’d had copious amounts of free time, was beholden to no one, and believed in love. Now, however, I had 16 years of marriage and 11 years of motherhood under my belt, plus a less-than-starry-eyed attitude about romance.

I ‘m a divorced woman in my early 40s and until recently I hadn’t been with a man for more than a year. My daughter, who is 20, just finished a relationship a few weeks ago with a man in his 30s. She was absolutely heartbroken. During their time together, though, whenever he came to the house there was always some “chemistry” between me and him.

There are certain lessons only a mother can teach. A grandmother may not be as relatable, and a sister may not have enough wisdom — which is why it’s up to Mom to initiate a heart-to-heart about matters of the heart. Although it can be a difficult subject to broach, your greatest gift to your daughter might just be the knowledge to face tough times and come out stronger.

Remind your daughter to keep her interests, friends, and alone time. She needs them all to lead a happy life and continue to feel fulfilled — whether or not the relationship lasts.
