Right personality for marriage?

I was having brunch with my brunch chicas this weekend when the topic of marriage came up. I jokingly commented that having a husband that lived in the house across the street or next door sounds perfect!

I think a lot of single people who have not been married before have this fear (unhealthy?) of what life would be like living with someone else. Especially when you actually love living alone, in your space, doing secret single person behavior things all alone.

I wonder if it takes a certain type of personality to adapt to marriage and make those adjustments to living with a mate? Maybe some people find it easier than others.

Do you think some people just have the ideal personality to be married?
How can you know if you are that type? How can you tell if you have what it takes to be someone’s spouse?

@C: Gurl, go get a slice. You’ve got me wondering if I can sneak down to Piece of Cake and back without anybody missing me. :roll: Their salted caramel cupcakes make me weak!

@WD: I’on know… I went all out on the Wally Cleaver/Eddy Haskell this morning and haven’t recovered.

Thanks! I am making it day by day. I really never had a problem with seeking medical help I’ve done my meeting with Dr. Jennifer Melfi, and I paid her a fistful of money for her to diagnose me as human… :wink: Seriously, though, thanks!

Thanks! :grin:
Good for the two of you!

Bluz, Bluz, Bluz….. I know I promised a kinder, gentler ITL so I’m not gonna run in with guns blazing. But sweetie, Celisea and Kimmie have given you the truest of truths today. In a nutshell:
1. Know yourself
2. Value yourself

I’m not sure how to take that, Bluz. At the end of the day, people are who they are. You might stop leaving dirty glasses in the sink to please an SO, but you can’t quit being someone who wants and needs more than a physical relationship if you’re not made that way. You can try, but you will make yourself miserable.

This afternoon’s conversation is not good. I don’t see good things happening tonight at Marietta Diner. I hope y’all don’t see me on the news.

“Hi, this is Hedda Headley standing by in Marietta where a local woman just crashed through the dessert case at Marietta Diner. Not with her car, with her bare hands, John and Monica. Witnesses say she was so crazed she literally lifted the glass from the case and began devouring every dessert in the case. At last report, she was being treated at Wellstar Kennestone and is reported to be in a diabetic coma, but in stable condition. Hedda Headley live in Marietta.”

I think it all has depended on the guy. I’ve been able to knock boots before without having feelings develop. But…I do wear my heart on my sleeve and can fall fast and hard. It is hard to stop myself, but since I’m still freshly hurt from the ex, I’m trying to just go with it. If more happens, cool…if not, no problem…

Agree! Agree! Agree! Besides wich fact, if you know you want more than just d!ck, why would you settle for just d!ck? hat would make you a whore not being true to yourself.

I like Piece of Cake because they have small cupcakes and large cupcakes. They have sell wedges of cake for $5. They give you a choice.

We did Piece of Cake cupcakes during Christmas and how about I ate two with no problems. If folks weren’t in the room, it would have been three :oops:

There’s a cake from Piece of Cake brought in once or twice a month…at least.

Why???? If it’s not you, why would you want it to be you? Do you think there is something wrong with not being a “hit it and quit it” kind of girl? No judgment against those who can do it, but there is nothing wrong with wanting more and waiting for more.

Why is it the fat chick is checking out my slice? Yeah, I took a big piece. It’s just sitting there and in there for all to have at it. No one is eating it because everyone is so salad and weight crazed/conscious. No point in letting it to go waste. I can guarantee what’s left in there will be there tomorrow….

@C: Ummmmm, didn’t work, but thanks anyway. And tell that chick to get her own slice and quit staring at yours. I HATE it when people come by my office, leaning over my desk to see what I’ve got. Dang germy-a$$ mouth breathers.
