Ducky I’m a little lost on this love map thing, do you think you could explain it another way?
I may understand, but I’m not sure…. I call Mr Frenchie every morning to wake him up b/c I know he isn’t a morning person at all and needs the added help to get out of bed. Mr Frenchie knows that I need "the plan" when wer’re doing something with his friends or family b/c I don’t like surprises. So if we’re going to hang out with one of his friends for the night he’ll tell me before we go out where we’re going and what we’re planning on doing.

Thanks Ducky that makes more sense to me now 🙂 That’s what I thought it meant, but I wasn’t sure and I didn’t want to miss out on understanding part of the book.

I am such a perfectionist that this part made me paranoid!  The Four Horsemen didn’t worry me (we’re really good about talking things out before they escalate and someone gets upset), but this part makes me nervous.  I know he hates salad dressing and loves his Super Nintendo, I know he gets cranky if he can’t run for whatever reason, I know he is super allergic to dust and the people he would take a bullet for.  We were friends for months before we started dating, and we dated for a year before we got engaged. 

Maybe I shouldn’t read books like this if they make me this nervous!  I think that I am just a perfectionist and I want our relationship to be as perfect as possible (which is kinda dumb, because we’re human and relationships don’t work like that) before we get hitched.  Anyone else do something similar?

Hmmm…FI and I are kind of taking a crash course here. We’d been apart for 8 years, then moved in together, so it’s been a kind of intense cram session. The first time I ordered his pizza wrong I felt terrible like "darn, I should have known that!" In all fairness, we both still have a lot to learn, and every day is a new adventure. I think the what’s interesting is how much both of us are trying to learn those things, and to fill in the gaps in each of our personal histories, frowm when we were apart. This means getting in to tougher stuff sometimes, but we both need to know where we both have been, to know what is our purpose here. We’re getting better; he likes pepperoni, and remembers to check my pizza to make sure they got the ‘no cheese’ part every time!
