But how?

This video struck a sore spot for me-this is my biggest problem...I'm of the dating age. I have so much trouble not seeing guys through rose colored glasses, and I end up getting attached or I guess infatuated with guys who just aren't for me! I just know that this will help me once I'm married, like you said...but I just find it so hard to do it now. I'm melamed zchus too much, and make excuses for everyone -even the guys I meet and date (and it's getting me into trouble). I wish I could just turn my switch on and off. I guess I need to look at it as more of a decision, like you said. Use my mind and decide to love someone, not become infatuated with them and then think I'm in love...I hope I can. Thanks for your wisdom.

Exactly what my mother has always told me!

20+ years of marriage proves it true

After we got married, my husband and i did actually put on those rose-colored glasses. We agreed that BY DEFINITION, the most beautiful/wonderful person of the opposite sex was the spouse. This attitude caused some people to roll their eyes when we were young, but as we get older it's interesting to note that even more people actually openly approve of and understand our loyalty to each other. Especially when we get into tough disagreements, those rose-colored glasses help bring back the warm feelings needed to see storms through.

Thank you for the good advice

After starting a bit of an argument with my husband this morning, Lori's advice really hits home and was just what I needed to hear to get back on track. Thanks for the rose-colored reminder!
