Gotta Love Cowboys

Since cowboy heroes are considered a Harlequin American reader favorite I thought it might be fun to share a few passages from the book, Just One Fool Thing After Another --A Cowfolks' Guide to Romance by Gladiola Montana and Texas Bix Bender 1994 ©.

There's no cure for lovesickness, and nobody really wants one.
If you're in doubt about whether to kiss somebody, give 'em the benefit of the doubt.
To bring somebody into your life, take a step into theirs.
A Heart that ain't been broke thinks it's okay to go around breakin' others.
It may be more romantic to be the first love, but it's better to be the last.
Try not to make a ring around a finger feel akin to a rope around the neck.
To love and win is the best thing. To love and lose is the next best thing.
Be quick to mend fences.
Most marital graves are dug with lots of little digs.
If women are foolish it's because the good Lord made 'em a match for men.
Don't waste time on someone you can easily run the whole length of.
When your sweetheart wants a long walk, you'd better be willin' for a long listen.
The best way to reach the heights of romance is to stay on the level.
Life is not bearable with the opposite sex until it's unbearable without them.
A big heart is better than a big house.
To appreciate love you have to know you can lose it.
Don't share your blanket if you don't intend to share your heart.
Marriages made in heaven only work when they get down to earth.
Women have to be in the mood, men just have to be in the room.
A day without a shared laugh is a sorry day.
If a woman can't make you miserable, she can't make you happy.

My husband's aunt used to say…"When it comes to marriage …it's just as easy to fall in love with a rich man as it is a poor man."

Anyone else care to share "advice" they've received from their mother, father, or a friend on romantic relationships?

My Mom told me to never go to bed mad---always work it out before bedtime.

Hi Estella

I agree, besides, making up his half the fun!
