This week's question is:
What did you think about dating and marriage the year before you met "the one?"
Dear (younger) Sharon,
You'll meet your future hubby at the end of 2006. But before that, your love life was looking pretty bleak. At the beginning of the 2006, your college boyfriend breaks up with you after dating for a year. When you ask him why, he gives the lame-o excuse that your personalities don't mesh. Clearly he wasn't man enough to give a real reason. Your heart is so broken that you start thinking you'll wind up alone with 10 cats. (you're allergic to cats, so this is very, very bad). But in the future you'll learn thanks to Facebook that the girl he winds up marrying is older, FAR less attractive than you, and could never compete with your skinny self. Major downgrade!
It's all good though, because you have far better things in store. You're attending Fordham University in the city (as in, New York City) working on getting your master's degree in Social Work. In the summer, you fufill your dream of living in New York and move into a tiny apartment that's in a fabulous neighborhood. You'll learn quickly that there's lots of single men in Manhattan, but most of them are in finance. This means they only care about two things: 1) themselves, 2) making more money. You're starting to think you'll never meet any one great, since there's hardly any guys in the social work field and the ones that are, already married or gay. But no need to fret, since in just a few short months, your future hubby will come along and change everything.
