Michelle Obama's Dating Advice For Her Daughters [Video]

Solid advice from Mama Obama.

There will be a teenager in The White House next month. That’s when Malia Obama turns 13.  But, according to her mother, she’s already entered her teen years mentally.

In an interview with Diane Sawyer on ABC News this week, the first lady offered up some advice for her girls – and all young girls – about falling in love.

“Choose people who lift you up,” she said. “Find people who make you better.”

It’s a more romantic piece of advice then their dad, President Obama had for his girls last week.  “I’m not anticipating complete mayhem for the next four or five years, but I understand teenagehood is complicated,” the President said.  “I should also point out that I have men with guns that surround them often, and a great incentive for running for reelection is that it means they never get in the car with a boy who had a beer, and that’s a pretty good thing.”

As if the Secret Service is the scariest part about dating the President’s daughter.  It’s got to be a brave boy who ventures to 1300 Pennsylvania Avenue to take the Obama girls on dates.

According to ABC News, any future suitor will be grilled by dad, who plans to “ask him for his GPA, find out what his intentions are in terms of career.”
