My mom is a teacher. She started her career in teaching way before I was born. I have a lot of love and respect to the teachers, and my heart is so close to them. I have spent around three quarters of my life in their supervision, and I am no stranger to the job that people do in the academe.

Now, this one, from the creator of http://ofrainbowsandansweredprayers.wordpress.com, I find it a bit patronizing, although written lightheartedly, feminine and… quite subjective to be honest. Since this is the first time I’ve seen such an entry online, it still deserves a spot in my “Date a Girl Who…” category.

Do check the other entries and get ideas as to what other people think and recommend of who and who not to date. 🙂

Here’s the link to the complete text: Date a Girl Who Teaches

“Date a girl who teaches children. Date a girl who enjoys more in a bookstore for school supplies and children’s books rather than in make-up store. She has problems with storage space because she has too many trinkets and storybooks to keep. Date a girl who has a list of stories that she wants to have and read, who has a collection of Aklat Adarna, Leo Lionni and Eric Carle’s books. 

Find a girl who teaches. You’ll know that she does because she always carries supersized bags. She’s the one who has everything in her tote. From art-project glitter materials to wet wipes. She has to carry her laptop almost everyday and all those papers and booklets that only she can understand. She might forget to bring her lipstick, but she won’t forget to carry her water bottle and pencil case with colourful pens in it.

 It is easy enough to date a girl who teaches. She won’t want expensive gifts; you can buy storybook for her birthday, flowers for Teacher’s day, craft punchers for Christmas. You can buy her anything but please spare her with coffee mugs; she has lots from her students.”

“…Experience dating a girl who teaches young children and you’ll be surprised of the life lessons you’ll learn from her. She will definitely touch your life.”
