Everyone is different with different ideas of what’s important, what’s attractive, what’s funny. I don’t know whether there’s one single person in the world whom you’re meant to be with, or if it’s all about finding one of the someones out there who could be a good fit for you. These are the signs that told me what I had with Ty was different. By the way, I’ve said “he” throughout because this is based on my experience, but if your true love turns out to be a woman, own it. The one that lights up your eyes and makes you my beautiful Abby? At breakfast the other day, Abby made a rather astute observation about babies: “Babies are a lot of work.” I laughed. “At lunch one day, we were sitting next to each other and singing along to the same song. She’s been asking questions about what it’s like to be in love. And it reminded me of when I was a girl, when I wondered: How do you know when you’re in love?
She catches me and Ty kissing and says “I saw you” in a teasing voice.
Which begs the question: Settling for a deadbeat loser is like settling for a job you hate.
There are way too many people who hate their jobs and keep on doing them, just like there are way too many women who settle for men who treat them poorly.
My theory is that in the beginning, most women don’t know the guy is a deadbeat loser.
He probably is reasonably attractive and tells a good story about his current situation and his ambitions.
