Michelle Obama's Dating Advice to Women: “Cute Is Good…”

October 5, 2015

Katie Couric interviewed First Lady Michelle Obama for Glamour's Women of the Year issue. Topics they talk about include the importance of role models and mentoring and her biggest surprise as First Lady. During the interview, the First Lady issued some good dating advice to women:

“Cute’s good. But cute only lasts for so long, and then it’s, Who are you as a person? That’s the advice I would give to women: Don’t look at the bankbook or the title. Look at the heart. Look at the soul. Look at how the guy treats his mother and what he says about women. How he acts with children he doesn’t know. And, more important, how does he treat you? When you’re dating a man, you should always feel good. You should never feel less than. You should never doubt yourself. You shouldn’t be in a relationship with somebody who doesn’t make you completely happy and make you feel whole. And if you’re in that relationship and you’re dating, then my advice is, don’t get married. Get out of it and find that person that brings you complete and utter joy with who you are at the moment.”
