The first time I read this book I was 25 and I didn't really get it. I was still wide eyed with optimism when it came to relationships. The second time I read it I was 30 and still single and starting to get a bit jaded, starting to wonder if I'd be alone forever, and it made so much more sense (I know it's not cool to admit to freaking out about being 30 and single but I was and I did, deal with it). I hadn't thought about this book in years and then, a few weeks ago, I dreamed about it. So I bought a new copy. I wonder what I'll think of it 11 years into a relationship with the guy who actually stuck around? 11 years of good times, bad times and heartbreak later?
