GOING STEADY.

“Take care how you travel”.
There are many times a loved-one will encourage a person leaving from home, “Travel Carefully”. It is a suggestion that is given no matter the mode of transport.
Similar advice can be given for travelling through life. There are many corners and crossroads to negotiate. There are numerous ideas and philosophies for happiness and success to be pondered. Going steady through life will encounter major as well as minor decision crises. Take it steady!
Now, what about that special girl friend? She is telling her girl friends some of her secrets. Another boy approaches her with hopes of a positive response. You hope her response will be, “I’m already going steady”.
It’s a special time for learning to trust each other.
It’s a growth experience as, together, you traverse differences. Ones hopes and aspirations may be non- negotiable. Going steady can then come to an abrupt end!
It’s a learning adventure. There are ‘gives’ and ‘takes’. Going steady means getting to know each other’s likes and dislikes. It is also a time to become aware of important areas of compatibility.
It becomes a faith journey. As information about each other increase, so does the mutual respect and admiration. It is not surprising that the “Love Bug” bites. Then follows the confusion as to what part aches or what part itches.
Then when the “Cupid Bubble” doesn’t burst there is the joyful entry into prospects of marital bliss.
Going steady continues.

an interesting and unique take on the topic.You look at that magical (in the spiritual amazing sense of the word) topic of Going Out by turning OUTGOING on its head.
to make it even better try to Space out your paragraphs and try and put some more flesh on the ideas.
well done and look forward to reading more!

Dating is such a topsy-turvy time of life, yet such an important time. We hope and pray that our children listen to what they've learned.
It would help to put in some action and dialogue to illustrate your advice.
Keep writing!

Short and sweet. You covered the teenage years nicely. On your next entry put a space between paragraphs. It makes it easier for the reader. Good job and keep writing.
