When you are dating, I mean really in the trenches of dating it’s hard not to get caught up in SUPERFICIAL Stuff. And although I am ashamed to admit it– I almost didn’t go out with my husband on our first date because he lived in BROOKLYN. At the time I lived in Manhattan and I truly believed guys who lived outside of “the City” were just not cool. And sure at that point in my dating life- I hadn’t met a Manhattan guy that even CARED to know or ask what my favorite color was– for some reason I refused to expand my horizons. I honestly don’t remember what it was specifically about my husband that had me bending the rules- but I have to admit- he was the FIRST man who EVER cared enough to get me coffee, let alone ask me how I LIKED my coffee. (Almond milk and lots of sugar- which although he thinks is not healthy he has always gotten me coffee this way).
And this list above- although it may appear to be SLIGHTLY corny and steeped in FANTASY ( I’m not sure my husband ever laid on my chest to hear my “Heart BEAT”) it still is a pretty important list- because at least for me it’s a great litmus test for gauging the temperature of your relationship- and just how invested your significant other is in your happiness.
One of my favorite lines from this is- fall in love with someone who kisses you in public and is proud to show you off to anyone they know. Not that I am MAJORLY into PDA, but one of the things that distinguished my husband from most of my previous relationships was his complete INVESTMENT in US. He CALLED ME HIS GIRLFRIEND almost immediately, he was EXCITED and proud to be with me- and always took my hand in public.
Which line resonated most for you?
