Size Him Up
1. You don't need a man to make you happy. Sure, it's great to have one around when you want to rearrange your living room or mow the grass, but there are movers and landscape contractors, and they don't move in and throw their underwear on the floor. Make yourself happy first, and then go for the guy. You'll be happier in the long run.
2. No matter how hard you try, you will never "fix" a guy. Won't happen-I've been married to Mark for 16 years now, and despite a massive and grueling training regime, he still isn't perfect. Not even close-and believe me, I've tried. Here is a man that owns his own business and is highly intelligent, but still can't pick up his own underwear. Even though I've reminded him every day for the past 16 years. Oh, he'll do it for a few days if I get really mad, but sooner or later, he reverts right back to his old self. Everyone does.
