Sometimes, at the end of a dramatic relationship with a guy, a girl asks herself, how did I get into this mess? Couldn't I have seen this coming? Should I have noticed clues that this guy was going to end up being a jerk / treating me badly / messing around with someone else? Was it all in there from the beginning?

When I was little, I used to think that all cats were girls, and all dogs were boys.
My parents (who thought they were hilarious) told me that if I swallowed a watermelon seed, a watermelon tree would grew out of my bellybutton. I believed them and more than
I am a total romantic. I adore getting flowers, being serenaded, surprise gifts, the works. In my experience, a lot of nice guys are not naturally "that type" of romantic. Sure, there are romantic guys out there - but many of them are great at romance just because they've honed their skills "romancing" a million girls - some of whom they might be dating at the same time they are seeing you.
So I've learned that in the case of really nice guys, who aren't necessarily
