Things to know

Regularly read by 50,000+ readers in over 140 countries around the world, "Dear Bro Jo" is published several times a month.

This is column is just one guy's opinion, and while he does his best to keep what he thinks, says and writes in-line with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, "Dear Bro Jo" is not an LDS Church website. (And Sister Jo thinks you should know that he's sometimes wrong, and often way too opinionated for his own good.)

Nothing here is meant to take the place of talking with parents, leaders, or Church authorities. Please, if you need serious help, talk to a trusted adult, leader, and / or professional counselor.

Three Quick YSA Questions

Dear Bro Jo,


I have three quick questions:

1.  I wondered what you thought about LDS dating websites?

2. What do you think about a girl asking a guy out on a group date?

3. When do you think a girl should have her first kiss?

- C

Dear C,

1. I'd stay away from LDS dating websites as a YSA, but as a SA, particularly one over 45, I think they can be a needed help when it comes to meeting someone new.

2. I don't think a girl, of any age, should ever ask a guy out on a date, group or otherwise, unless it's a special and unique occasion (like a girl-ask-guy dance) and she's already dated him.

Instead she needs to get him to ask her out.

3. When she's ready. In general (you may want to see "Bro Jo's Guide to Kissing" for more details) I think 16 is old enough, but if it hasn't happened by 19 that's not a disaster.

- Bro Jo
