Belladonna made me proud last night.
Bella is 23 and has a strong sense of right-and-wrong.
She is currently between romance interests.
I asked her if she would consider dating a man who had a bumper-sticker on his car/truck that was not in alignment with her beliefs.
She gave it a couple of seconds of thought. "If I found him interesting, I guess we would have a conversation about why he chose that bumper-sticker. I would want to know the details of why it appealed to him."
I was pretty happy with that answer. One of our older kids put a bumper-sticker on the back of Mrs ERJ's vehicle. That aggravated me. I like leaving our vehicles plain-vanilla and the bumper-sticker is not one that Mrs ERJ or I would have chosen.
Even if Bella decided the guy was not worth dating, she will get a dose of how he thinks about things. That fleshes out the universe of alternatives.
