5 Love Lessons learned from watching the opera Carmen

March 10, 2011

1. Remember, ask questions first, THEN seduce (possible questions to ponder include – Do you prefer ordered army life or rag-tag gypsy clans?  Does your potential lover perhaps have anger management issues?)

2. The best way to demonstrate love for someone is not to encourage and support them, but instead destroy one’s own life and follow them into the mountains.

2. Nothing is more boring to one’s lover than neediness – especially if they have the unmitigated gall to meet your sacrificial demands.

4. In the end, bull fighters in tight pants always get the girl.

5. Don’t meet up with your stalker ex-lover in private, this will most likely end in awkward confrontations or possibly stabby time.


  1. Love this, Abby! Too funny.

  2. I’ll keep those in mind. Especially the second #2. 🙂 Glad you enjoyed it!

  3. hahaha, this made me laugh too. Especially the phrase “stabby time.”

    Hello again, by the way. I’ve recently rediscovered your blog (I used to read it shortly after we graduated from Goshen) and am enjoying catching up with you virtually. I promise not to be a lurker. 🙂 Take care!

  4. lols your mind works in a weird and wonderful way x

  5. Haha, awesome observations. However, I think some people ARE attracted to neediness, maybe because it makes them feel more needed themselves. Perhaps?
