I like however the comparison between age and a base limit.
– I try to raise my sons on the idea that sex is a realm of personal responsibility we must face as adults, whether or not you are one.
Somewhere along the line of growing I concluded that maturity and popularity was linked with getting to this or that base.
While sex is linked with status, it’s a pretty shallow way to approach something as important and intimate as – well intimacy.
There’s still training camp to get through, my friend. Then, once you find a good team, make sure you play with all your heart.
You might be in the minors for a while, but if you play well, you’ll get noticed.
My friend and I are curious what the 3 bases in dating are. She wants to get to base 3 with her boyfriend (whatever it is) but I think she is way too young to go that far.
So what age do you think she should be before she considers going that far?
:) I’m assuming here that you’re no longer playing Little League, but you’re not yet in the major league. You don’t want to go to bat for just any farm team that’ll take you. You need a team that’s worthy of you before you even pick up that bat of yours.
So keep your communication with your friend open, and support her thinking about and talking about the things she wants and does.
That’s way more effective than saying things like “you shouldn’t do this.” Good luck!
When I think of “bases” I think of excited gossipers in my distant childhood past.
The bases arent a recipe, its a form of comunication. I think below age 16 there is a massive amount of communication/for so little actual activity.
