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.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
