The dating world can be brutal for us grown-ups, let alone for young people just starting out! There’s so much drama and uncertainty and weirdness! If you’re not a confident person, it can really take its toll. But even for the most confident people, it can be hard to navigate. Do you guys remember what it was like when we were in our teens and early 20’s, dipping our toes into the dating pool for the first time? It was equal parts exciting and nauseating, to be honest. And in this day and age of social media and internet dating, it’s only gotten worse. We love the convenience of swiping on potential partners, but we hate dealing with things like ghosting and body part pictures. If you have a daughter, there are definitely some ways you can prepare her. This dating advice for daughters is a good place to start.

Listen, we’ve been there. We know (somewhat) what to expect. So who better than parents to dispense dating advice for daughters? Moms AND dads have some pearls of wisdom that can help her navigate the uncertain dating world. From knowing your own worth and feeling confident, to not being afraid to advocate for yourself, there’s so much we can teach our daughters. They’re going to be the people they’re meant to be, and find the person (or people!) they’re meant to find. It’s up to us to make sure they have the right tools to carry with them on their journey.

Dating advice for daughters can be simple and apply to all parts of her life, like making sure she knows that NO ONE can determine her self-worth.

Or woman’s love! Any person’s love, really. The point is, we need to make sure our daughters know that their self-worth is not tied to who loves them, or stops loving them, or how many people they’ve loved. But rejection can make you feel like you’re not good enough or worthy of that person’s affections. It’s trite, but true: it’s not you, it’s them! Make sure your daughter knows that she is always good enough, no matter who or what tries to convince of to the contrary. We should never look to others to confirm how we feel about ourselves, and this is so important when it comes to dating.
