Text Message from Him Does He Love Me?

The Stafford Project  Episode 5: “It’s Just a Heart”

Okay ladies.  Let’s have a little fun today.  Do you obsess over a text message from your guy or any guy?   When, where, how much and what exactly does it mean?  I found this video on the internet (love the actress—Michelle Stafford) which pokes fun at our whole “text message obsession.”  We can all relate to this.  We’ve all been weak.  Let’s heal the weakness and laugh together and get over it!  I send this video to my clients all the time so we can have a chuckle about it together.  Watch the video and then we will discuss below.

  • Notice how she does not quit asking what it means until she gets the answer she wants?  Why do we do things like that?  Maybe because we don’t want to face the truth.  We know the truth but prefer to stay delusional about it.  Why would we do that?  Because it’s safer than the truth.  The truth that maybe, just maybe, he doesn’t like us all that much. If a guy likes you he is in constant contact.  He is never “too busy.”
  • It’s easier to make excuses for a guy instead of facing the truth.  (Refer to above)
  • She is playing it like she knows it is slightly crazy to keep asking about the heart, LOL.  We KNOW when we are being crazy about it but we just can’t seem to stop!
  • The guy who says he “never texts hearts.”  Hilarious.  I have never gotten text hearts from a man.  Think about it…have YOU?  I get the flirty smiles or something much more naughty.  Wink

Are you laughing yet?  It’s important to keep a good sense of humor about the dating process.  I mean, after all, a sense of humor is very attractive quality, no?  So the next time you feel a little wiggy about the whole “text message” with a man thing, sit back, relax and enjoy Michelle Stafford’s humorous take on the whole situation. And if you really want to feel better, this season of her show she has a lot of bad dates.  In interviews Michelle Stafford has said it is based on her life and well, if it is even slightly true we will all feel better because we’ve been there.  There is one bad date where a guy keeps trying to sing to her in public.  That has actually happened to me on a very bad date.  Dude started singing to me in the Olive Garden. I was mortified for me and embarrassed for him.  Makes a fun story though, right?   Love Goddess

Perfect Personalized Gift-Here It Is!

When your best girlfriend wins an Oscar, make sure you’re there to take her picture! 

It’s so much fun to give the perfect personalized gift.  How can you make a persons’ face light up with joy?  Truly one of the best feelings in the world!  The only problem is, the more you love someone, the more you want to show them and have their face light up.  And if that person is someone who has everything they need and are low maintenance?  It can get even more frustrating.  I have a little solution for you.  It isn’t very expensive and takes a little planning but it’s a really thoughtful gift that really helps in these situations.  It’s not sexy.  It’s incredibly practical.  I never see it in all those “what to get for the person who has everything lists” in magazines and online!  It’s something that would mean way more than a store-bought product.  What is it?

A meaningful picture.  A moment caught in time that will last forever.

I do this for those I love.  And you can do it too!  All you have to do is think about what that person loves to do, who they love to do it with and then take the picture.  Make a nice collage and put it in a frame.  Voila.  The perfect personalized gift.  Here are some examples to inspire you:

  1. My brother and Dad are SO difficult to buy for.  If they need something…even around their birthdays or Christmas, they can’t wait!  They just buy it.  Leaving the family scrambling for ideas. So my counter attack was to take pictures of them doing their hobbies together.  The first one is a picture of them fishing on a brilliant summer day.  I put it in a big frame and they loved it.  Next up is golf.
  2. Dad:  Make a collage of the two of you.   Arrange pictures of you growing up doing things with him.  Put a nice picture of him in the middle.  This is the perfect personalized Father’s Day gift.  It works with Christmas or Birthdays too!
  3. My Mom has a best friend who lives in California.  They absolutely adore each other and it is so cute.  Every year they get together at a nearby resort, have lunch and reminisce. They look forward to doing this together every year.  I surprised them and took pictures as they were arriving for their “annual luncheon.”  I made two sets of pictures so both would have them.
  4. Think of the loved ones’ hobbies/loves.  Take pictures of them doing it.
  5. Have a difficult to buy for girlfriend?  Make a collage of you together.  Doing the things you love.
  6. Always take a picture of an important event and then frame for a gift.  One year the whole family when to Disney World.  I wanted all the generations together for a picture in front of Cinderella’s Castle.  I can’ t tell you how difficult it was, but it was SO worth it!
  7. Traditions.  Eating around the table during a holiday with everyone saying “Cheers!”  Tailgating, sporting events, etc.

With a little thought, a little planning and some humor, even the most difficult of people on your list will enjoy a meaningful picture.  Those special moments and loves all wrapped up for them to enjoy for years to come!  The perfect personalized gift!  Now get “snapping.”  Love, Goddess
