Gents, you can be the right guy, but you can't make yourself be the right guy.
Women will understand this intuitively, while very few men will understand it at all.
Mrs. T dodged a bullet last week. Her daughter(a college junior) has been dating a guy several years older, since school began in the fall. The lad has completed his schooling, and is hard at work on a successful career. On paper not a bad catch.
Last Tuesday, clearly thinking he was the one, the lad called and asked Mrs. T the dreaded " may I ask for....." question.
Mrs. T told him to call back in a couple of years when her daughter finished her schooling.
The two of them were here for the holidays. It was clear he was besotted, and that she liked him but maybe not as much.
Valentines Day came and went with no major announcements. It was clear they have discussed the matter, but maybe mom scared him off.
let the good times roll!
