Marry your best friend.


“Marry your best friend. I do not say that lightly. Really, truly find the strongest, happiest friendship in the person you fall in love with. Someone who speaks highly of you. Someone you can laugh with. The kind of laughs that make your belly ache, and your nose snort. The embarrassing, earnest, healing kind of laughs. Wit is important. Life is too short not to love someone who lets you be a fool with them. Make sure they are somebody who lets you cry, too. Despair will come. Find someone that you want to be there with you through those times. Most importantly, marry the one that makes passion, love, and madness combine and course through you. A love that will never dilute – even when the waters get deep, and dark”

  1. Very good advice, once the ‘new’ wears off you must respect&genuinly ‘like’ the person your with! Thanks for the reminder! I’m going off to hug my best friend.

  2. Mine is probably still on his way. Made the mistake already of loving twice and it wasn’t the real thing. Until he arrives, I’m living for my children.

  3. I married mine. He’s been gone now for a long 6 years. I miss him so, we had so many plans for our future. Its hard to loose the man you love, knowing I can’t win him back in this life. Soooo, its memories and a prayer that I someday find love again. Til then, I look at our children and look to Heaven and say I miss you Baby. Thank you Lord for giving him to me for the time I had him. I look at it like this…., a great man got the promotion we all pray we get when the time comes.
    Dating is tough. I haven’t yet had the pleasure of dating a keeper. I respect my previous life and the way I was treated in my marriage too much to settle for less than another life that is filled with love and mutual respect. I might never find it, but I had it once, and thats more than most can say!

  4. Real love is not based on romance, candle light, dinner, and walks along the beach…
    In face based on respect , care, and trust!!!

  5. I truly thought I found this person. Alas I did not. I still am holding out for a love and relationship based on respect, honesty, loyalty. Any person who lies, cheats or continually puts a person down to make themselves look better is not the man for me. I keep searching.
