Are you that girl, you know the type who expects her guy to be perfect? Well, you’re not alone, and that’s why former that girls Rebecca Murray Schuler and Christine Wiesedeppe-Regan wrote I Love You Even Though…, a pocket-sized book full of humorous anecdotes so you can stop being so hard on him, especially since he’s just being the guy you fell in love with in the first place.

I Love You Even Though...

Below are some entries from the book. Just precede each one with “I Love You Even Though…”

• You don’t understand the financial and emotional disparity between “Coach” being printed on a handbag and “Coach” being printed on an airline ticket.

• You can effortlessly organize a fantasy football draft involving 12 guys, 6 cases of beer, 8 pizzas, and 5 orders of Buffalo wings, but forget to make dinner reservations for our anniversary.

• You consider all asking to be a form of nagging.

Schuler says, “If he gifts you a power tool, focus on the underlying meaning of the gift, not the gift’s designated usage, horsepower, or gear to torque ratio. Power tools = Love. The FOREVER kind. Men do not part with spring-loaded, fuel injected, or otherwise mechanized electric or battery powered gadgetry. Power tools = Commitment.”
