The other day he told me that he has already started looking for a house for us and that he plans to marry me next year and wants to start a family a year later.
My mother, however, chain-smoked for over thirty years.The first thing she did when she woke up in the morning was reach over and light a cigarette.He is too, but his smoking is the only issue we keep arguing about.He says he is trying to kick the habit for me, but he has failed to do so and it seems he smokes even more after each failed attempt.Hi Evan, I’ve been reading your blogs and following all your advice.
After several failed relationships, I finally found someone who is all the things you say that a real man should be. I am a non-smoker and have never dated a smoker in the past, but I am in my mid 30’s and ready for marriage.
I’ve been ready for marriage for over a decade and over the past 5 years, I have been reading self-help dating books and blogs such as yours, actively making changes to better myself and attract better quality men. I’m sympathetic to your dilemma, as I’m sure most non-smokers are as well.
After doing all that, I finally found the man of my dreams who wants everything I want – except he’s a smoker. But as I’ve said hundreds of times before, whatever you call a dealbreaker is a dealbreaker.
When I was in elementary school, the DARE program became mandatory for all of the students.
Our DARE officer would show us graphic photos of the lungs of people who smoked and told us that smokers will die horrible deaths. I became convinced that I was going to lose my parents and be left an orphan.
The faculty would make snide comments about my parents, which as a child was hard to hear.
