I came across this post on stumbleupon.com at this link. The origins of this simple list are unknown, but I think it`s worth taking a look at.
TWO. Marry a man/woman you love to talk to. As you get older, their conversational skills will be as important as any other.
THREE. Don't believe all you hear, spend all you have or sleep all you want.
FOUR. When you say, "I love you," mean it.
FIVE. When you say, "I'm sorry," look the person in the eye.
SIX. Be engaged at least six months before you get married.
SEVEN. Believe in love at first sight.
EIGHT. Never laugh at anyone's dreams. People who don't have dreams don't have much.
NINE. Love deeply and passionately. You might get hurt but it's the only way to live life completely.
TEN. In disagreements, fight fairly. Please No name calling.
ELEVEN. Don't judge people by their relatives.
TWELVE. Talk slowly but think quickly.
THIRTEEN. When someone asks you a question you don't want to answer, smile and ask, "Why do you want to know?"
FOURTEEN. Remember that great love and great achievements involve great risk.
FIFTEEN. Say "bless you" when you hear someone sneeze.
SIXTEEN. When you lose, don't lose the lesson.
SEVENTEEN. Remember the three R's:
TWENTY. Smile when picking up the phone. The caller will hear it in your voice.
TWENTY-ONE. Spend some time alone.

Great advise!! I actually like all of them...well all except two.
ONE: I would rephrase it to be "Give people what you can freely and cheerfully give without feeling you're owed anything in return. Don't give beyond that point because you'll end up feeling used, unappreciated and resentful". Naturally if you give with open arms expecting something in return, you're bound to be disapointed. Materialistic, Emotional, whatever.
SEVEN: I don't believe in love at first sight. To me that defies all that love means to me. You can only love me after you know who I am. At first sight you know nothing about me, so whatever you think you love, isn't me.
What do you ladies think? Am I being too harsh and pragmatic?
|I always love your opinion becky! on Mar 08, 2011 @ 02:31 pm|
I don't think you’re too harsh, I think you speak from experience.
|great list! on Mar 08, 2011 @ 03:16 pm|
I broke #6 - shattered it, actually. But I'm a huge huge huge believer in #10 and I hope I live it too. (I'm a fan of the rest of the list too, but find that #10 especially has made a big diff in my relationships)

This is the kind of list that needs to be printed and taped to the fridge.
I love #8 the most but I like them all

it should also be taped to every freshmen girl's dorm room door, I think it could solve a lot of heart ache
