#2656 The Honeymoon Is Over

Anna Nicole Smith Kissing Husband J. Howard Marshall

Hi Isaac, I’ve been dating my girlfriend for about six months now and it’s starting to feel like the honeymoon phase is fading… I feel like I’m noticing parts of her personality that make me question our relationship. Is this normal or is this a sign that we’re not compatible? I really hate thinking like this, and I really care about her. I appreciate your help.

Hey, gidday mate. You know the expression, “Love is blind”? It’s terrifyingly accurate.

Lugubrious asks: Hi, I’m another New Zealander, hope you’re well. I’ve just recently been to New York and I’m desperate to get back there asap, with my graduate visa (in a couple of years). I was just wondering how have you managed to stay in NY and how difficult is it to stay over there for more than the one year visa (coming from NZ)? Cheers!

Like I mentioned last month, Harriet Were designed me a sweater, and it just arrived in New York City. Coincidentally, this was actually my 30th birthday present from my beloved sister Rebeccah, and it’s her birthday today in New Zealand, so as a special gift to mon soeur, here’s a picture of me in my new jumper. Happy Birthday, Rebeccah!!! Is that a fair exchange? Hard to say. But let’s go with it!
