What did I do? Oh, I smiled and nodded and called the Guy at my first chance to laugh over it. And we both exclaimed over how weird people are - a topic of conversation that has remained most enduring and entertaining for us.
And it's been over four years and believe me, I'm proud to be with the Guy. Not proud of how he looks - though I'm not displeased with that, and we seem to be growing more and more alike there, given how more nicely rounded we grow every month - but of how he is. And I feel so incredibly lucky that he wants to be with me.And I'm glad, every day, for the one fact that brings us together: that we are so similar, that we can understand each other so well.
The best relationship advice I ever got? It was delivered by my friend Vroom, back when we first became friends and I was telling him about my first boyfriend. It was pithy: "If you ask me, that guy's a jerk. Dump him."
Of course, I blew up at him for talking about my boyfriend like that. But it's been almost seven years, and Vroom and I still speak our minds to each other.
How about you? What was the best relationship advice you've ever got? The worst? Make a post of it, write it in the comments. I want to know.
