“Guys are like subway trains. Don’t run after them; another one is on its way.”
“If he says he isn’t ready for a relationship, believe him.”
“My grandfather had some gems: ‘Don’t be with a stupid man just to be with any man.’
‘A real man always takes care of his family.’ ‘You don’t want to be walked over,
and you don’t want a man you can walk over, either.’
And my favorite: ‘Don’t be a fool, Michelle.
You can be anything you want, but don’t be a fool.’”
“Don’t trust anyone who doesn’t laugh.”
“The guys who were nerdy in high school make the best husbands.”
“To love oneself is the beginning of a life-long romance.”
“You can tell a lot about a guy by how he treats your cab driver.”

“Respect yourself. I said to my ex, ‘I’m not going to make you my everything if I’m only your something.’”
“I used to be into bad boys but kept getting burned. Then I heard this: ‘
Say no to the guys you usually say yes to,
and yes to the ones you normally say no to.’

“Never marry a man who has no friends.”
“Never tattoo a guy’s name on your body!”
“Personal hygiene is part of the package.”
“It’s OK to show up at a guy’s house with a dozen roses and
declare your undying affection.
It’s OK to have too much to drink and call your ex 20 times
and then to be mortally embarrassed when you realize
your number must have shown up on his caller ID.
It’s OK, because making a fool of yourself for love is
ultimately about you, how much you have to give and
the distances you will travel to keep your heart wide open
when everything around you makes you feel like
slamming it shut and soldering it closed.”
