Everyone knows that if you want an honest answer, you should just ask a kid. After all, they’ve pretty much got zero filters when it comes to their view of the world. And when it comes to the dating world they’re no exception.
That’s probably why Kids On, a new webseries on YouTube, is gaining so much traction with viewers. In each installment (released Tuesdays), co-founder Dave Keystone can be seen hanging out with a youngin’, asking him or her for her honest opinion about traditional dating dilemmas. Think “to text or call,” “dinner or drinks” or that age-old question, “who should front the bill?”
The answers? Hilarious. And not because it’s a ‘kids say the darndest things’ type situation, but because their answers are so obvious and straightforward that you’ll wonder why you ever thought dating was so complicated in the first place.
Three of the 16 kiddie cast members (along with Keystone) appeared on The Social recently to dole out some relationship advice to the relationship expert herself, Cynthia Loyst, along with digital media correspondent Jessica Allen. The video, above, is pretty fantastic.
Among the dating topics discussed? Whether to text or call someone you’re into.
“You should text them because calling is too much. You’re just literally speaking,” Aidan says. “When you’re texting it’s not too much.” Who needs a dating column when you’ve got that sound advice?
As for how to break up with someone? Talia has some thoughts on that subject.
“You shouldn’t do it by text because then they’ll think is it my fault,” she says. “You should talk to them and let them down easy, which is pretty much how they do it in everything, like movies and all that stuff.”
According to Keystone, he knew he was onto something when he was at a party and there was a girl he was crushing on across the room. So he did what any fully grown adult would never do, and turned to the 10-year-old next to him and asked what he should do.
The answer? Just go talk to her.
Welcome to the end of your dating woes, people. Crazy how we have these little people to thank.
