I hoard emails. My reason for hoarding them is simple: I might need them some day. Emails serve as written proof of a conversation. This is helpful for a number of reasons, from memory nudging and legal/historical documentation, to spousal argument proof (See, hon, I did tell you my Aunt Rose was coming to town).
I think I have a problem with my husband. He is health conscious and fit and he has will power. Wouldn't that be enough to make you nuts when you don't? I am addicted to ice cream, chocolate and jelly beans. He can pass up dessert and skip dinner. With shoulder surgery this winter, he has been particularly conscientious about what he puts in his mouth.
As a young, professional, 20-something who has spent my adult years focused on my own career goals while fumbling parts of my personal and professional life along the way, one thing I've learned is that at some point women, and particularly career oriented women, need to be very honest about what they want both in their professional and personal lives.
If you read blogs or go on Facebook or even watch the news, you've probably heard about the post written by Seth Adam Smith -- Marriage Isn't For You. In the post, Mr. Smith writes thoughtfully and sincerely about his brief (1 1/2-year) marriage and the advice his father gave him about what marriage is for.
Sometimes I have to just ask myself 'Why aren't men smarter about showing women how they feel?' I look at the women I know and honestly, we're a pretty predictable lot. It's pretty easy to figure out that we want to feel loved. But so many women feel that their man doesn't show them enough love that I have to wonder why this is so hard for men.
