‘I want my daughter to have a ‘not great’ boyfriend’

After a 5 Live listener texted to say they wanted their daughter to have a ‘not great’ boyfriend, to prepare them for the future, two parents gave their reaction.

John, who is a dad of two, told Nihal Arthanayake: “Get your heart broken when you’re young, learn from it, because getting your heart broke at 17 is a damn sight easier than getting it broke at 37.”
