My gf was pushing me so much to let her drive my new WRX and I finally let her on a short trip to the beach about 5 miles of nothing but two lane roads and not to many cars. 5 stall outs, a lot of I'm sorry, and my heart in the back seat a 1/4 of mile into the trip I took over and drove the rest and thus ending the worst manual driving I have ever seen in my life. Thank god the car is ok

Sometimes you get the best light from a burning bridge.
haha oh man, you guys are in for it when you have kids and have to teach THEM how to drive a stick
I tried teaching my sister on my WRX and she got to the point where she was able to get moving very roughly before she decided it wasn't worth it.

My girlfriend tried to learn in my 94 accord, and never figured it out. It was frustrating. So when she needed a new car, I bought her a manual 4x4 toyota pickup and made her drive it home. She mastered it in like two days. I swear sometimes she shifts my wrx smoother than me sometimes, but I can't tell. That's because as someone else mentioned, I only let her drive when I'm drunk.
driving manual is weird. The first time i tried to drive stick was a disaster. A few years later I didn't stall once driving my brothers miata.
Now people tell me how smooth my car is and they can't even feel the gears shifting.
Well some women are better with there hands then other, your sister is gifted all jokes aside I did stall my first manual when I was 12 and learning on a 92 chevy pickup 5 speed. But I have not stalled my WRX yet. and this wasn't the very first time my girl had attempted to drive a manual vehicle. At least the 2002 V6 mustang had some give when she dumped the clutch.
Don't forget to tip you bartender and waitress.

My girl actually drove the WRX better than my old Civic Si. She had it going so well that I made her drive around a while on different streets to get the feel for the gears. I was also really really drunk so my judgment as a bit impaired.
yall are horrible boyfriends
