I realize that our relationship has not always been a good one but I need you to hang in there for me. Last night, when you simply 'checked out' when I was trying to communicate with you made me realize that I've been neglectful. You see, I learned an awful lot from Laurie Puhn, J.D. last night at the Pregnant New Yorker-sponsored event. She discussed how happy couples have conversations with a goal.
Her book, Fight Less, Love More, really urged me to focus more on our relationship. I need to be more appreciative of you. What about Big D? He's cool about the whole thing. We got to turn to one another during the book discussion and say why we appreciate the other person. While the other couples rambled off lists of glowing compliments to one another, he stopped at just one. He said he's saving the remaining compliments to use for the rest of the month. Now that's a practical fellow. He has conversations with a goal.
Back to you and I. I need you to stay in this relationship with me because I really don't know where else to turn. We've been on this ride for a while now and I don't even know where to start saving our memories. I'm telling you what I need from you. I hope you will respond accordingly. You behaved iffy last night. I don't want to seek out another but sometimes I wonder if you were the right choice for me. Being Open Box and all. I took a leap of faith. Don't pull the plug on us.
P.S. I won a gift certificate for a massage from Prenatal Massage Therapist Janet Markovits. I'm saving it for the day you decide you've taken all the vanity-driven information from me that you can handle. I'm going to need it.
