I think you have a good point about doing all that you can for the person you love. Even if it does not work out the other person will definitely never forget you, and who knows, maybe you'll have inspired them to make someone elses life better.

@Laine - That is pretty much the ideal reaction Id want someone to have to this post. Thank you :)

I stumbled upon this and I'm speechless. I'm amazed and happy I read this. This coming from a guy.

I celebrated my 48th birthday this past Sunday, and it was very depressing to me because I have been alone my entire life and, as a result, have wound up carrying an awful burden of despair, rage, resentment and envy. I ran across a link to one of your blog postings early this morning, and have been reading avidly since then. Two years ago I read Lori Gottlieb's "Marry Him: The Case for Choosing Mister Good Enough" as kind of goof, like finding a cache of enemy counter-intelligence. It was HORRIBLY depressing. I wanted to let you know that all of *your* advice and observations - especially this particular entry - have been a huge tonic in comparison. Thank you SO much. Please keep doing what you are doing.


Thanks for the new things you have disclosed in your writing. One thing I would really like to touch upon is that FSBO human relationships are built as time passes. By introducing yourself to the owners the first saturday their FSBO is usually announced, before the masses start out calling on Friday, you create a good network. By giving them resources, educational materials, free reports, and forms, you become an ally. Through a personal affinity for them along with their problem, you create a solid relationship that, many times, pays off when the owners opt with a realtor they know along with trust -- preferably you actually.
