My Friend’s Style Is Becoming Embarrassing. Should I Tell Her?
I have been married twice before. I met my wife-to-be at a friend’s birthday party when she was a freshman. We met almost four years after she entered the university, and we married in our third year. But before I explain the reasons why my old friend’s old style is getting to be a total turn-off, let me say that it’s not her fault. When we first met, I would come home at night time, and she was sitting on the patio with her phone in one hand and a cigarette in the other and she would be reading the headlines on the front page of the newspaper with a frown. It was like she was depressed. And then I would spend my nights in my bed, and she would sit on the patio with her phone, and a cigarette, and a newspaper, and a very deep frown. I was so amazed at that phenomenon that I spent most of my nights staring at our patio floor where she would sit and stare at the newspapers, a cigarette, and her phone. And I would get up in the middle of the night and stand over her to try to see if she was still awake, and she would stare at the papers, a cigarette, and her phone.
I would go to bed on top of the world. It was almost like a drug, and I would be happy until she woke up and left. It was almost like a drug.
Then, I went to my third marriage. Her style was also becoming a total turn-off. There were a lot of nights when we would spend the night at my friends’ place and her friend would come over while I was sleeping to see her. I would wake up in the middle of the night and stand over her to try to see if she still woke up, and she would stare at the newspapers, a cigarette, and her phone. The other friends would come over and watch my wife sleep, while I was standing over her to try to see if she was awake, and she would stare at the newspapers, a cigarette, and her phone.
I did not get much sleep ever
