And remember that it’s important not to be too critical. I wouldn’t have liked a guy who was critical of my family or contentious with his attitude.Nobody is perfect, and if your list of requirements is too strict, you can easily overlook a person who would be very happy with you, and you with him or her. Although he had not received much schooling, I found Harry to be surprisingly well educated, in a natural way.When it’s the right person, he brings out the best in you, and you do the same for him.
If this describes you, my advice is to go someplace quiet and beautiful on a day when you don’t have to be anywhere else, and to clear your mind.
It might not happen right away, but don’t be discouraged. As you get calmer, let yourself think about your relationship objectively, as something that exists in a world outside of your role in it.
If I like a person, I like him or her deeply, but if not, the person is automatically eliminated.
It is an unspoken connection, very powerful, very clear.
But those little things that set your teeth on edge are important to recognize. When people ask me how they can find the person who is right for them, I tell them that they must first understand who they are, and what it is that they are looking for. In fact, I grew to love it, as I loved many of his quirks, because they were the quirks of my sweetheart.
Had we not been so much in love, I can easily imagine liberry seeming like the most irritating sound in the world.
Pick good friends, and everything else that’s good will follow–including love.
A friend who knows you well might recognize that someone is a great match for you even before you do, or see warning signs in a beau who is truly “too good to be true.” A friend with good instincts is a fine person to keep around when you’re weighing your romantic options, but, of course, the final decision about a partner must be your own.
I am fortunate, because my instincts are very strong.
All my life, when meeting people, I have immediately responded to an inner quality in them that I either like or I don’t.
The relationship question that people ask me more than any other is, “How did you know that Harry was the right guy for you?
