So, who watched The Avengers this weekend???
It was excellent. The movie completely lived up to all the crazy hype surrounding it!
The characters meshed together so well. The action was insane.
...and all the actors/actresses were smoking hot...
I'm dying to know what you all thought!
I received a question from a reader who wishes to hear all your opinions and words of wisdom.
Here's the question because I know you're all itching to say your piece!
I have been dating a girl for a few weeks. She has a genetic heart problem. She was recently hospitalized for a minor corrective surgery. When I asked her for the name of the hospital performing the procedure, she quickly stated that she did not want any visitors. Even after promising not to visit she still would not indulge any information. Without the name of the hospital, I can not send her flowers or chocolate! Is this normal? What should I do?
The first thing you need to consider is the very short amount of time that you have been dating.
The second thing you need to consider is the reason why she's holding this information from you.
Don't worry, I'll enlighten you. Luckily, I have been in a similar situation!
As a woman, we always want to look our best for you, especially in the beginning. We also fear looking vulnerable or weak to a man for fear of being eaten alive by some jerk.
Hospital gowns and unwashed hair does not equal sexy.
We totally get and appreciate that you want to be there for us in our time of need, but sometimes our pride comes first. This may seem silly or even more insecure, but you also need to remember that you just started dating. The whole "trust factor" is just starting to bloom. Allowing someone to see you in your most vulnerable state is a huge leap of faith.
Two years ago I underwent spinal surgery.
You can read about that here.
Point being, at the time I was mortified. I didn't allow extended family members or close friends to even know where I was staying. I wanted to focus on being well and not have to worry about being embarrassed of my horrible condition.
I say let her be. Support her from a distance and bring her a huge bouquet of flowers when she gets home.
What advice would give my reader?
