One man asks children for dating advice — and their answers are priceless

A new Web series shows children answering questions about dating. Their advice gets a little interesting.
  • Dating can be confusing, but these kids have all the advice you'll need to see success.

  • In a new YouTube series called "Kids On," children offer up dating tips addressing questions like how long a boy should wait to call a girl after he gets her number or how to get over your shyness in approaching someone.

  • "If I'm asking someone out, what should I text?" the host, Dave Keystone, asked a young boy in the third episode, to which the boy responds, "Hey want to go out sometime?"

  • "Just like that?"

  • Though some of the dating tips conflict (like waiting a year to call or calling that night), hearing such straightforward advice might make you think twice about your own dating methods.

  • Have you ever thought about asking someone to meet you at the town hall or practicing breathing exercises after a rejection text? Have you given consideration to how much you use your eyebrows when approaching someone in public?

  • The series goes to show putting young kids on the spot with your dating questions can yield some confident and interesting answers.

  • "I know you think I'm a kid and I'm kind of, like, not good with girls or whatever," one boy said. "I had four girlfriends when I'm 7. I know what it feels like."

  • New episodes come out every Tuesday and will surely offer plenty more dating wisdom and entertainment. Now go put the advice into practice and see how well it works.
