Dating t shirt nora kirkpatrick dating
A college friend began to check in on me the way people call on their elderly relatives. My first clumsy swipes resulted in a bunch of blue “super like” stars whether I liked the guy or not.
The shirt suggests that we’re talking not about an adult woman but an underage daughter.
Just a month before, I had been on the receiving end of this special kind of assistance myself.
The first year after I filed for divorce, I was living an ode to Marianne Moore’s quote, “The cure for loneliness is solitude.” I was in my how-to-be-single phase, using power tools, and I wasn’t completely alone. All too soon, though, one year turned into two and it was patently clear I no longer knew how to meet men in real life. One friend gently suggested that perhaps I was making things weird.
While the shirt claims it’s from “feminist father” — it actually has some really good ancient wisdom woven throughout it.
You’ll note that while the message is supposedly that the daughter makes the rules, there are in fact three additional rules after “I don’t make the rules.” And what this really shows us is the importance of having a dad around to provide the guidance he kind of claims he’s not providing.
