7 Dating Lessons and Bits of Advice from My Mami

Mother’s can sometimes be right. Here are dating lessons and advice that I learned from my mami.

My mami is a very traditional Latina. She cooks, cleans, and caters to her children and partner with love while reprimanding with a chancleta, if need be. Mami also shares her opinions about everything. I’m furrowing my brows too much? She tells me I may need Botox when I’m older if I don’t stop. I’m cooking arroz blanco and chicken? She reminds me (see: commands) to use a specific stovetop. I’m traveling to a foreign country? She becomes the Latina Barbara Walters and lays out the happenings and current events of said country. And don’t leave your personal belongings unattended!

It’s no different when it comes to dating. Mami tries to pass along words of wisdom every chance she gets, even if unsolicited. I take some of her advice. The rest I ignore while she yaps in my ear in Spanish about this or that. She’s my mother and I love her, but I just want to live my life and make my own mistakes. However, as much as I hate to admit it, she isn’t always wrong. As a matter a fact, Mami has provided me with great consejos in love that I will share with you all today:

1. Never leave home without lipstick. Because according to Mami, you never know who you will meet. She’s right. I think it’s important to always ong>look your best. When I look my best, I feel my best. I’m confident and perhaps more alluring…and maybe that will help me attract “the one.”
