So I’ve been so busy with my life that I haven’t blogged in a year. But it’s okay, because the reasons are because my life is so amazing. I met this amazing guy back in 2013, and we got engaged this May and married in July! I literally couldn’t be happier. He fits everything in my little book PLUS MORE and he helps me every day be as great as he is. But blah blah blah, that’s regular cliche-type stuff that you’ve heard a million times. You will one day know more about him and my new family and all the wonderful happiness that is my life. Until then, consider this the quickest recap on my life, and now I will dive back into the blog, if you don’t mind! 🙂
Surprise! I’m making this into a book. See details here.
Leave a comment after you read the book and tell me what you think!
A few months ago, one of my very best friends gave me a copy of “He’s Just Not That Into You.” I had seen the movie, but never read the book. I love the movie! I still think every girl should see it, but after reading the book cover to cover in just an hour or so (granted, it’s only 80pgs) and highlighting the heck out of it, I’ve decided that every human–especially women–should either read the book or be exposed to the things it teaches.
At the time, I was just getting over dating who I like to refer to as my Evil Ex. It helped confirm to me exactly the kind of person he was (and probably still is), but I couldn’t help but wish I had read it years earlier.
Recent circumstances allowed me to think of the book again, so I went through and picked out all the qualities listed in the book that have become my new standard. Instead of helping me get over an ex, I read it with the mindset of appreciating and being able to recognize the type of man that I will one day spend my life with.
It also occurred to me that this might be useful to some of you.
I made it all into a pretty book, extremely convenient for you to download, print and make into a little cheat sheet of your own! I’m not saying that these are the end-all, be-all of standards, but they are mine and maybe it wouldn’t be bad if they were yours too.

EDIT: This was written at a very specific time in my life, as is discussed above. I’ve posted a response and explanation for the contents of this book 9 months after this, which you can (and should) follow up with here.
