Eee, this scene still makes me blush! I’m such a sucker for these lame, romantic lines! “For you, anything.” Pfft, please! So predictable! But so effective! I wish more guys had try to woo me thusly when I was single. My husband was the first one to really try to sweep me off my feet. It was a full-on romantic assault. And it worked so well! I still look back and say, wait, what?
This was originally commissioned by and posted on gURL.com. A lot of the teenage gurls commented that this helped them feel better about not being in a relationship yet. I wrote this one reply:
“Just wanted to say that if you haven’t had a boyfriend yet, I didn’t have one till I was 19, it lasted three months or so, and I waited three years before I met another I wanted to date.
It takes some time! Don’t settle! Good things come to those who are in no hurry to buy.”
That was 2008. Four years later, I still have this “heron in the pond” sit-and-wait attitude about things. I wonder if I still will in 40 years? It’s serving me well so far.
