when i first read the title of the post, i thought “oh boy this ought to be interesting”, but it actually makes a lot of sense. but at the same time, i’m not sure it would work for me. i am a model, and i have always wanted to travel to a larger market (like new york or milan) to see if i could succeed there. this usually requires a minimum 6 month commitment, so if i left for that long i don’t think he’d appreciate it!

Your dad is soooo right! And I think it’s great that your dad sounds Un-biased.

Oh, man, that’s great advice!  I followed it myself in trying to make a decision to move across the country for a job or stay with my SO.  I moved.  SO & I broke up.  It was horrible and sad.  Now I’m marrying Fiance, and all is great!  It wasn’t easy, but I knew that if I didn’t go, there would always be that nagging “what if.”

@Phofe2774: My dad told me the EXACT same thing!! He basically said “don’t let someone else decide your fate” and that I should do what I want in my life and enjoy it instead of going crazy waiting on some decision.

I really don’t read the waiting boards, but I’m a daddy’s girl and I love dad-advice, so I had to check this out. I think your dad gave some wise advice. Good luck with making your plans! 🙂

Dad’s really do give the best advice when it comes to the big decisions. I’ve found that most of my mom’s advice stems from emotional reactions and most of my dad’s from fact. I’m a total momma’s girl, but when I needs a good dose of reality I hit up my pops!

Exactly why I bought my house instead of waiting until we get married/engaged. 🙂
