Treat Mothers Equally

Question:
Hi Mr. Butler:
I’ve never been a fan of my boyfriends’ mothers … bad luck maybe? I’ve been seeing someone new for two months now and I’m wondering how long I can avoid meeting his mother. Please say a year or longer.

Daddy’s Girl

Answer:
Dear Daddy’s Girl,
When I first read your question, I thought that you needed to toughen up and go meet your boyfriend’s mother soon or else your new man may take offence and you run the risk of losing him. Upon further reflection, however, the answer became clearer to me.

You should meet his mother within a month or so of him meeting yours. It’s always prudent to treat mothers equally. Please give your boyfriend’s mother a chance, she just may turn out to be the fabulous mother in-law of your future. Ask your new boyfriend to share with you a little about his mother and her interests.

Perhaps this will allow you to find a topic of interest ahead of time so both of you can begin your relationship on the perfect foot and you can actually enjoy each others company!

What an honour!

It is with great excitement and honour, that I have just received the following email,

On behalf of the Board of Directors and the members of Protocol & Diplomacy International-Protocol Officers Association (PDI-POA), it is my pleasure to welcome you to our organization. PDI-POA was founded in 2002 in Washington D.C., with the cooperation and sanction of the United States Department of State. It is the first officially recognized international association of professionals who work in the field of protocol. The association is unique because membership is limited to those currently working as protocol officers, those who have been protocol officers in the past, diplomats and consular officers, and the law enforcement partners of protocol such as the U.S. Secret Service, State Department Diplomatic Security, and airport protocol officers or liaison officers.
