"I tell people to be sure and not to get involved until you know more about your friend," Jean Baldwin said. "I think people think they've found the right person just because everyone else has."
She advises people not to rush to find a relationship "just because everyone else has got goo-goo eyes."
A retired teacher, Baldwin passed the same basic advice on to her students.
"Don't do things just because everyone else is just to try and be popular," she said. "Know your mind — this is you."
"Be sure you’re doing what you feel in your heart," Baldwin said.
