Forever My Girlfriend

I was in an unhealthy relationship four years ago, and through listening to you, I was able to see what I knew in my heart all along - that I should get out of Dodge!  At the not-so-young age of 32, I was wasting precious time with the wrong guy.  I "ran," but it was difficult.  Yet through it all, I learned more about myself and reaffirmed what I truly wanted in a man, boyfriend, a husband, father, and friend.

Less than two weeks ago, I got engaged to the love of my life.  During our first year of dating, I introduced him to your show and shared with him that I really valued your opinion on many important life topics, so he began listening with me anytime we were together on an extended car ride.  I've gotten a kick out of seeing how much he enjoys your show and I now suspect he listens on his own when he's not with me!  I've known I've picked the right guy, as it's clear we share the same values when it comes to opinions on relationships and family.  

This weekend when we were talking about the excitement of our upcoming wedding, with a wink, he said: "You know, you might be my fiancée, but you're still my girlfriend!"  It sent me into a fit of giggles, and as I put my arms around him, I asked, "Now where would you come up with something like that?"

I so happy to have held out for the right guy.  I'm also reminded that I have now EARNED the opportunity to get your book "The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands."  Thank you for bringing us together on so many levels!
