What is the best relationship advice that you have ever gotten? Both of my grandmothers gave me great relationship advice. Grandma B told me that if a man loves you, you don't need to do any coaxing or prodding, he will move heaven and earth to be in your presence, just so you will know it and feel it. Grandma T told me that I should test and be happy with "my package" before I leave the store because there is no return policy to get your money back or store credit. Great advice from 2 very wise women. 
Do you think you would prefer a calm, loving, consistent marriage or one that was full of excitement, wild times and rocky patches? Can't I have both? I know marriage is never perfect and there will always be ups and downs. However, it's the consistent and steadfast love that allows couples to weather the storms. So, I would want a loving, full of excitement, wild times but consistent marriage with rough patches to remind us that we are stronger than the bad times when we look back at how we overcame them.

What is a secret dream of yours? A secret dream of mine is to perform in a broadway show.
Do you prefer receiving expensive gifts or ones that come from the heart? Definitely, ones that come from the heart. Nothing beats a gift that is sincere and heartfelt.
What type of man are you attracted to? I'm attracted to any man that can handle my craziness, especially one with a sense of humor. A man is going to need a sense of humor, not to make me laugh, but for his own sanity just to deal with all that is me on a regular basis.
How do you feel about surprises? I LOVE surprises, especially really GREAT surprises, but it's hard for anyone to surprise me I usually figure stuff out.
