I knew that would get your attention!
Her interview about the book highlights three main reasons that might preventing you from marriage:
1. “You’re a bitch.” – Tracy says that if you’re unhappy and carrying baggage, people can see that. I personally can relate. When I had lost 70 pounds on weight watchers, I was extremely thin and cute. Guys paid attention to me…a lot. But I was angry. I call it my “skinny bitch” phase because I was cute, but a raging bitch. I was resentful that guys were suddenly paying attention to me because of my body rather than my intellect. So, I used them up and spit them out…which leads me to…
2. “You’re a slut.” – Tracy says that if you get caught up in casual sex, you may miss the boat on finding a relationship. That makes sense. If you’re looking for someone to commit, you need to make him work for it (at least at little!).
3. “You’re selfish.” – I say this about myself all of the time. When people ask me if I want to have kids, I say “No, I’m too selfish.” It’s true. I like my life as it is. I think this probably comes across with men too. You need to meet them in the middle, at the very least.
Ok, Tracy has convinced me that maybe I need to read her book.
