It’s been a while since my last newsletter, huh? At Quietly Romantic headquarters, it’s tradition that if I fail to write something new in a reasonable amount of time then I get to tell you something embarrassing about myself.
So, here’s a picture of me the last time I was at Disneyworld (before the pandemic started). The name of this photo: “Steve tries to understand dinosaurs better by becoming one.”
When I look at this picture, there’s three things that come to mind. 1) Was I sober when I took this picture? 2) I can’t believe that the woman who took this photo thought it was a good idea to marry me. 3) Holy cow, my two-year anniversary is coming up! I’ve been married to this amazing woman for two years now.
Wow. Time goes by fast sometimes, doesn’t it?
During that time, I’ve discovered that I’m a pretty dense person. If there’s one thing that continues to amaze me about being married, it’s constantly realizing how little I do know about being a good husband and a good man.
Today, I’d like to share with you a few things that would have made my dating life a lot smoother had I known them earlier. In my infinite capacity for being a dumb person, I’ve learned these after already being married. I’m sharing these with you now so you can apply them to your own dating life right away.
