9 Things Men Need To Know Before Dating My Mom

My mom deserves the world, but not everyone is worthy of her.

9 Things Men Need To Know Before Dating My Mom
Kelsie Williams

My mom is an amazing person, friend, and mother. She has lived a great life so far, but she has not had good luck with love. She married two not-so-great men, one was my father. That has not stopped her from dating and looking for the love she deserves. Here are things you need to know if you decide to date my mom.

1. I am very overprotective of her.

I realize the struggles of dating today. You have to realize that when you date my mom, you will date her children. This means you do not only have to impress her, my siblings, her dad, but the hardest one to impress is myself.

2. She does not have baggage.

She is a mother. She has three amazing kids. She is a grandmother, a sister, an aunt, a daughter, a college student, and many other things. She many great stories and memories of many people. She has people in her life that makes her happy.

3. I do not care that she is grown.

Heartbreak hurts the same at any age, so do not hurt my mom. She is my world, and I will protect her heart with my life.

4. Do not make her feel like she isn't enough.

She has been through more obstacles than the average person, but I promise she is enough for any man.

5. She is a diamond, so treat her like one.

Be gentle with her. Be kind to her. Pull out her chair for her and open doors for her. Treat her like you would want your daughter to be treated.

6. She knows her worth.

She will not put up with less than she deserves.

7. She is my Wonder Woman.

She has gone back to college as well as being a great mother. She is about to start working again. If she tries to fit in time for you, then realize how much you mean to her.

8. She is worth it, even though she has her flaws.

She is stubborn, confusing, and mysterious. Don't let that blind you because she is also kind, warm-hearted, and sweet.

9. She is a mom first.

She is not your girlfriend first. She is not a booty call first. She is not a student or an employer first.

I'm the child of a Marine Veteran. He may have been out of the service by the time I was born, but the Patriotic Pride he lived by has been my family's life line. I grew up with the American Flag hanging in my front porch. My dad has the "Proud to be a Marine" license plate in the front of his car. And red, white, and blue is a completely acceptable way to decorate your living room. But it doesn't end with just that. You need to know why we celebrate freedom.

According to Katy Perry, "Baby You're a Firework." I don't know if she was referring to the Fourth of July when she was referencing fireworks, but this song has allowed this generation to rejoice. The song "Firework" allows people of all ages to appreciate the lyrics, as the song brings forth a positive state of mind. Unfortunately, just like the song, not every knows what the Fourth of July is actually for. Many just assume it is that one time of year you get to spend time barbecuing and see fireworks light up the sky. Even though many are not aware of the American historical significance, this holiday has annually encouraged people to come together happily, which could very much be the importance of it.

10 Revolutionary Women To Remember This Fourth Of July

Independence Day is almost upon us, which means that for most Americans, it'll be time to bust out the lawn chairs and grills, gather around family and friends, and praise our history through patriotic garb and grand fireworks displays. It's the one day of the year where everyone forgets their political biases or historic inaccuracies, at least for a while, to look back on the hazy, illustrious history of the United States.

But, while we celebrate what people like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Patrick Henry did for this country, they are not the only ones who embodied the very virtues that our nation loves to advocate for. This Fourth of July, here are ten American women who history tends to forget, despite the groundbreaking things they did for their country.
