    Boys Are Like Buses. By PI Girl, Katie

    Growing up, whenever I would talk about a boy, trouble with a boy, a boy who hurt me or a boy I liked, my mom would always reply with, “Boys are like buses. There will be another one along in 15 minutes. Besides, the only boy that matters is Jesus.”

    Little did I know this was some of the most important advice I would ever receive. My mother has always been a beacon of strength. She is a survivor. God gave her a tough life and through it all she has remained faithful to Him. She loves Jesus with all her heart.

    It sounds uncomfortable, but talk to your mom. Tell her what’s going on in your love life. If your mom isn’t a woman of God, talk to a woman you trust who is intent on following God.

    We can learn so much from the women around us who love Jesus.

    1. This is partially true to some boys, some not, though. I like the way Alyssa R put it, though. You should wait for one that is traveling in the right direction. I have my eye on a boy who is a dedicated Christian, and actually cares about others. So I’m not letting this one go. You should hold on to a good Christian boy, and not just let the good ones pass right on by and classify them in the “Bad” category.

    2. That is really good advice and very true. You should be thankful that you can talk freely about boys to your mom. I have never been able to do that because my mom immediately tells me that I am to young to be thinking about boys whenever I bring the subject up.(Although I am about to turn 16) I am not in a rush to date but I always wanted to be able to talk to her about those sort of things.

    3. I thought this was going to be a rant about how guys can be horrid, but I’m pleasantly surprised. 🙂 I do talk with my mom about these things. Not a whole lot, but I do. And whenever I do, she gives great advice. I love my mom. <3

    4. I am not a fan of this article. Boys are human too. This article makes it sound like boys are the main trouble in relationships and doesn’t look at both sides of the equation. Now, I do agree that Jesus should be the main man in your life, but I think it is wrong to say that you can’t have friends that are boys because they might hurt you. I don’t think all boys’ intentions are to make you upset, they are just as worried about getting hurt as you are.

      • My best friend (and most of my other friends) are guys. I find no problem in it. Nothing romantic goes on, and I don’t get influenced. Honestly, most of them are better than the average HS girl.

    5. I don’t think boys are like buses. There needs to be only one “bus” in your life, that is the man you marry. Wait for him! And if there has been many “buses” in your life, you can ask God to cleanse you and help you start over.

      • I agree with you that you need to wait for the right guy, but in this comparison I think busses are guys and when you “step on” a bus you will be in a relationship with him. So, to me, if there is only one bus then there is only one guy in your life (and not in a romantic way).

    6. I really like your article but the thing is I could never talk to my mom about boys. She would give me this evil stare because she knows I know Ishould not be thinking about that so… yeah great advice but I can’t really use it. Is ther anything else I can do?

      • Same here. I just- don’t feel comfortable sharing that with her. Which I totally should, but one time she went behind my back and did some things do keep me and the guy I liked at the time away from eachother. It hurt when I found out it was her, so I haven’t told her anything about my love life since then.

    7. I lied (straight up lied) to my mom and said I didn’t like this specific guy when I did. And I felt so bad about it it tortured me for like 2 months, and it just got worse because not only was I now worried about what she’d say about the boy, I was worried i’d be in trouble for lying. Finally I decided I had to tell mom, because I didn’t feel like I could ask God’s forgiveness for lying unless I was truely sorry, and if I couldn’t tell mom the truth I wasn’t really sorry. So I went and told her I needed to talk to her, and I lied to her, and I was sorry, and I actually did like this guy. And she was surprisingly fine with it! She said she told her mom that her and my dad were just friends when she already liked him. And I felt such a huge weight lifted off of me! I wondered why it had taken me so long to come to her with the truth. Anyway, moral of the story: don’t lie to your mom about a guy, and if you do, tell her the truth as soon as you can
