No worries! President Barak Obama revealed that his daughters, Malia and Sasha, have been ditching family dinners to go on dates, and he isn’t too worried about it. According to UsMagazine.com, the President said the celebrity news in an interview with North Carolina’s WDCG radio station on Friday, November 4. “The truth is, I’m pretty relaxed about it for two reasons. One is [my wife] Michelle — she’s such a great example of how she carries herself, her self-esteem, not depending on boys to validate how you look or not letting yourself be judged by anything other than your character and intelligence. Hopefully, I’ve been a good example in terms of how I show respect to my wife.” The second reason? “They have Secret Service,” he joked. “There’s only so much these guys can do.”

This celebrity news has us surprised. What are some ways to get into the dating scene for the first time?
