I have been thinking – and before you ask, it was not painful thank you.
It seems to me, in these early days of wishful thinking concerning YGM2, that I should do a little research to prepare to present myself in the best possible light, should we in fact arrange to meet up this weekend. Which, I may add, I currently consider to be a highly desirable prospect.
So I have scoured the shelves of our bookcase (Bliss and I own many tomes on the subject) and found 4 notable volumes about relationships between the sexes, all of which purport to be written by experts and doctors and such. Surely these will arm me well to snag myself a man… Or at least snog myself one…
(oooh I say… she’s feeling saucy!)
Anyway, these notable volumes are
Relationships That Work [and those that don’t] by H.Norman Wright “the singles guide to looking for love in all the right places”
Finding the Love of Your by Life Neil Clark Warren PhD Ten Principles for Choosing the Right Marriage Partner
Boundaries Before Marriage by Dr Henry Cloud and Dr John Townsend Rules for Romance that Can Help You Find the Love of Your Life
and the piece de resistance
Mars and Venus on a Date by John Gray PhD a guide for navigating the 5 stages of Dating to Create a Loving and Lasting Relationship
What do the experts have to say I hear you ask?
I will let you know, I haven’t read them yet. They have been on the shelf as long as we have lived here and to my knowledge not been opened… This may explain why, both Bliss and I, both in our early (ish) 30’s are still single …
That was a late post. Don’t stay up all night reading. You won’t look your best. I found all those books on the book shelf, but I can’t give you any advice ‘cos I haven’t read more than a few pages of any of them. My Neil Clark Warren one is "The portable finding the love of your life." It’s one of those little quote books. I was hoping I could find some cute quotes to pass on but each quote is two pages long. I also found Passion and Purity by Elizabeth Elliot. I flicked through and found this in a chapter titled "Four bare legs"
Deep down a woman knows that she holds the key to the situation where a man’s passions are involved. He will be as much as a gentleman as she requires. He tests her limits… from a confused sense of obligation or even chivalry, to meet her expectations.
So there you go!
