“I was in the ninth grade when I learned a vital lesson about love. My girlfriend at the time, Amy, was stunningly cute, frighteningly smart and armed with a seemingly endless supply of form-fitting angora sweaters. And me? Let’s just say I was an adolescent Chris Robinson to her budding Kate Hudson — and well aware of my good fortune.
Then one day, as we stood in line for a movie at the mall, Simone Shaw, junior high prom queen, sauntered by. Suddenly Amy turned to me. "Were you looking at her?" she asked. "Do you think she’s pretty?"
"Well, yeah," I chortled.
Five days later our breakup hit the tabloids (a.k.a. the lunchroom).”
I luv Secret #11 – Give us an inch and we’ll give you a lifetime. But I think most of these ‘secrets’ cut both ways. Especially in a successful marriage.
For the most part I can’t relate to the problems many couples have. I suspect that is true because I was fortunate (read lucky) enough to pick a very laid-back, hard-working, and rich girl. (I can say girl because I met her when she was 15 years young.) Suzy is so low maintenance that sometimes I take her for granted. But not often. Especially when I meet some of my friends’ wives and ex’s. ;o)
