What Kids Think About Love and Gender

Time Out!

I’m taking a short break from this Gender Dramas series of articles as I assemble the Faces in the Mist series into an e-book for Amazon Kindle readers. Back soon….

Meanwhile, here are some words of wisdom… from kids, no less (gleaned from the web).

“Once I’m done with kindergarten, I’m going to find me a wife.” -Tom, 5 years old

“I’m not rushing into being in love. I’m finding fourth grade hard enough.”-Regina, 10 years old

“On the first date, they just tell each other lies, and that usually gets them interested enough to go for a second date.” – Mike,10 years old

“Love is foolish…but I still might try it sometime.” -Floyd, 9 years old

“When a person gets kissed for the first time, they fall down, and they don’t get up for at least an hour.” -Wendy 8 years old

“The rules goes like this: if you kiss someone, then you should marry her and have kids with her. It’s the right thing to do.”- Howard, 8 years old

“See if the man picks up the check. That’s how you can tell if he’s in love.”– John, 9 years old

“Married people usually look happy to talk to other people.” – Eddie, 6 years old

“One way is to take the girl out to eat. Make sure it’s something she likes to eat. French fries usually works for me.” -Bart, 9 years old

“Tell your wife that she looks pretty even if she looks like a truck!” -Ricky, 7 years old

“Love is when a girl puts on perfume and a boy puts on shaving cologne and they go out and smell each other.” -6 year old little girl

“Most men are brainless, so you might have to try more than once to find a live one.” – Angie, 10 years old

“Dates are for having fun, and people should use them to get to know each other. Even boys have something to say if you listen long enough.”-Lynette, 8 years old

“Lovers will just be staring at each other and their food will get cold. Other people care more about the food.” – Bart, age 9

“Romantic adults usually are all dressed up, so if they are just wearing jeans, it might mean they used to go out or they just broke up.” Sarah, age 9

“No one is sure why it happens, but I heard it has something to do with how you smell. That’s why perfume and deodorant are so popular.” – Mae, age 9

“I think you’re supposed to get shot with an arrow or something, but the rest of it isn’t supposed to be so painful.” – Manuel, age 8

“It isn’t always just how you look. Look at me. I’m handsome like anything and I haven’t got anybody to marry me yet.” – Brian, age 7

“Beauty is skin deep. But how rich you are can last a long time.” – Christine, age 9

“Love will find you even if you are trying to hide from it. I’ve been trying to hide from it since I was five, but the girls keep finding me.” – Dave, age 8

“Love is the most important thing in the world, but baseball is pretty good too.” – Greg, age 8

    Thank you for posting these little quotes, they really made me smile!

  2. My pleasure, Jane.
    I enjoy these things too.. the things that transport us back to the innocence of youth! Wonderful stuff…
    Not nearly as profound, though, as that big leap we all take at the end of our earthly lives… when we move deeper than childhood innocence… deeper than infancy… all the way back to precarnal existence, where living is light and blissful in paradise settings.
    Almost impossible to envision, once we get the hormones pulsing through these physical bodies at the start of a new lifetime!!!
    … or so I’ve come to surmise from my research in recent years….

    I love this stuff, Mark! It’s stuff like this that brings us away from the world of material pursuits and lets us genuinely smile. I got a kick out of “Married people usually look happy to talk to other people”!

    Both “The Project” and “Spirit Faces” are on their way to me and I can’t wait to read them!! My girlfriend is absolutely amazed at your research too. We are big supporters of the work from Connecticut! We have discussed ITC for hours on end and our curiosity and appetite for more research/reading on this is insatiable. I actually listened to both sides of Mr. Meek’s spiricom tape last night and followed along with the transcript on your worlditc site. This man truly was the real deal and his work has changed my perspective on a lot of things. I highly recommend listening to it for anyone else who might be reading this comment – it is really pretty incredible.

    I used to be a really closed-minded person. And I really mean closed-minded. To the point where I would outright mock anything resembling any type of ‘faith’ in another realm of existence or concsiousness. I actually just stumbled upon ITC on the internet, and from there I continued reading, and reading, and reading. The stuff I read really blew my mind – to the point where I was actually ‘shaken’ out of my old mindset and into something else that I hadn’t ever felt before.

    And for that, I am grateful.

  4. Ricky, Thanks for the links to the work of George Meek… a real inspiration and life-changer for me in the early 90s.
    You’ve followed a path similar to mine, I think. George Meek’s work was the main thing pulling me out of my atheism onto a road toward greater spiritual understanding, shortly after my bout with colon cancer (1988).
