"If they already think you're a whore, then go ahead and act like one."
The best advice my mother ever gave me. What's some good advice that your mom or dad ever gave you?
She told me to keep both feet on the floor during a date.
That's some awful and sad advice, op. Still, tell your mom to email me. I'd love to have drinks with her.
"Men only want one thing", knowing that saved me from boring dinners and movies. Just get straight to the good stuff.
My father once said "There are the girls you screw and the girls you marry. Learn the difference."
Strangely I turned into one of the girls you screw later on.
Never wear cheap cologne.
Check out a man's shoes and his nails. If they are unkempt, it will tell you a lot.
Push down, like you're taking a dump.
God, how I miss Dad.
Upon learning that I had sex with our neighbor's husband my mother said...
"You have your daddy's lack of morals and your mother's taste in men. You'll never settle down."
That old broad was right, God rest her soul.
My mother told me to stay away from families like your family, OP.
To lift my feet off the car floor when driving over railroad tracks - supposedly it brought good luck against getting preggers.
Career advice from Mom: Don't rob gas stations.
OP, that's the advice I gave myself in high school. I hadn't a reputation for being a whore, but rather... gay.
"If you just follow the crowd, you'll only get as far as they do."
"Find a partner. Don't go through life alone."
"It's as easy to marry a rich man as it is to marry a poor man."
"You can only rely on yourself because people are assholes".
God doesn't give you greater challenges than you can handle.
[Crying during a conversation a week or so after I came out at 19 in 2000)
"If you're as good at fuckin' men as all the [her maiden name] are, you're gonna end up with AIDS."
I stayed a virgin until I was 28... She was wrong about the AIDS, but oh so right about inherited talent.
"You can't get something for nothing."
Duh, of course, as you get older and wise up, but good advice for naive younger people who think they're getting an amazing, cheap bargain.
If people accuse you of something just go ahead and do it. Always have a spare lover to run to in case your main squeeze dumps you. Freedom of speech is worthless If you dont use it.
R20, that is astoundingly shitty advice.
Mom told me "If you know you're going to take a throbbing stiff cock up your ass, then an anal douche beforehand is just good manners."
"There are those that matter, those that don't, and those that never did. When you got that sorted out, you got it all figured out."
"Life is like a box of chocolates. There's only a couple in there that's really worth eating."
"There's no such thing as a free lunch"
Don't loan money and expect to be paid back.
If they'll cheat to be with you, don't be surprised when they cheat on you.
Always leave the house with clean underwear.
"the first to file a lawsuit or call the cops always wins"
To my cost I did not believe her.
