A 28-year-old woman I know slept at her best friend’s apartment last night. When I asked if her boyfriend minded her being away, she told me: “Why should he? He knows it’s just Dana and me.”
She explained that she likes to have a girls’ night once in a while, but the moment she wakes up the next morning, she wants to get back to her boyfriend, who lives with her. “He feels the same way. We genuinely miss each other, so that’s why it’s nice to be away occasionally.
“Noel is such a level-headed person, and I think I am, too,” she said. “We always want what’s best for both of us and act accordingly. We don’t push each other’s buttons or boundaries.”
I wish I had been as sensible and secure when I was 28. But it’s wonderful to see a young woman today who is so together…
Especially if she’s your daughter. I love you, Mone.
