Awww welcome back to bring it back Tuesdays. Today we take a look at a relationship post I did way back on Jan 03, 2007.....
As the holiday season draws to a close I'm reminded of something my uncle Curt told me years ago. Never get a new girl in the winter. I mean Never, just too much going on for a new relationship to survive. think about it, you have Thanksgiving, where she just might meet the family. Once she meets the family they will forever ask about her, you don't need that for some girl who might not last a month. Then you have to get her something for Christmas, which is a disaster because something too nice and your committed to buying nice things forever, something too cheap and she thinks you really don't care and she is just some jumpoff. Plus she may see the family again so they will really ask about her all the time. It's a no win. Then you have to take her out for new years, that's more money on a girl you may or may not think will last till the spring. THEN you have Valentines Day!!! which is a all girl day, dudes get squat for V-day. So you have to do something romantic for that. So in 1 season you have a years worth of relationship stuff, that's just not a good thing. Better to wait till the spring and give it all spring, summer and fall to get to know her before having to go thru all that. My uncle is a wise man, I can only hope to teach the youth as well as he taught me.
update: I've been thinking about this for an hour or so and even though I love my uncle he is divorced and lives alone. Maybe he is not the best person to get relationship advice from. So on that note forget every thing I said above... LOL
looking back on this I still believe this to be true.(the update was apart of my original post) My uncle might not be a love guru but this little bit of advice was pure gold to me. Yeah he divorced and lives alone but he wants it that way. You can't deny someone's wisdom based on a choice they made. That doesn't mean they have not been thru it before, they just choose a different route.
