My wife has been answering this question in a Facebook group of high school classmates.

What would you say?
Ignore the people who say you can’t, if you want to fight for it, don’t turn down any opportunity just because you think you can’t if you want it go for it. If you try and fail at least you tried, when you don’t try failure is assured, so you have nothing to lose by trying.

Get control of the sex drive. Control and direct that energy into something constructive. Learn to meditate and control the mind. Learn about female nature. Do not allow yourself to be manipulated by a pretty smile and the temporary condition of beauty. Know that marriage is a contract with the state which is primarily set up to financially benefit and protect the woman. Look up Title IV-D and heed the warning to your financial future. Stay out of Family Court. Take the money you would have wasted on dating and put it into a retirement account earning interest. Stop playing those superstrats with Floyd Roses and start playing a Gretsch with a Bigsby.
