I had been in love with a man for over a year, and he had told me he loved me. But he seemed content to leave the situation static—no proposal. He carried a lot of scar tissue from a former marriage. About six weeks before I learned of Fascinating Womanhood, he moved back to his home city to a better job, leaving me with somewhat less than consoling statement that he would give it a “try” for about six months before he came to any “final” decision.
Then I attended a Fascinating Womanhood class. Since he was away, our only contact was by letter or phone. I wrote a note to him each night always applying whatever I could of the class material. I missed no crumb of opportunity to express admiration for his masculinity. I kept notes of every cheerful or funny thing I could to write to him. Sometimes, I let him know how needful and incomplete I was without his strength. I prayed a lot.
In three months he came back with a proposal of marriage. I am busy with packing and making wedding plans He is planning to get me back there and find a bigger house. Happy as I am, it is still even more thrilling to receive his letters and calls, brimming over with his joyful anticipation.
We are half a century old, each of us with too many years of tragedy and heartache. Most of this was caused by female ignorance—mine and his former wife’s. Neither of us had the information we needed to be complete as women—nor to make a man feel like a man. Fascinating Womanhood will remain one of the road markers to my greatest blessings. And I will stay busy at the happy task of manufacturing joy.
