    HA! I love these. I clicked over to a few of the posts I hadn’t read yet. The one about space – TOTALLY happened this weekend. I didn’t handle it well internally, though. We don’t live together *just* yet, but we had hardly been with each other all day and he said, “Let’s play it by ear” about coming over to my house for dinner. “Let’s play it by ear” meant no, and as an extrovert, I can’t spend more than a couple hours by myself or I get sad. So I pouted and watched 8 episodes of Flash by myself that evening. But then I thought, I’ll literally never have 8 hours to myself unless he’s out of town once he moves in, so I should embrace this. (I thought all this a couple days after.) Anyway, I love your blog, and I love how it is so encouraging on relationships and how to be a great wife and have a healthy marriage!

    Thank you for sharing the random searches that lead to your website! My favourite…”My wife is so hot…um.good for you?” LOL Amen sista!

    Also…Wow, had no idea you met with a holocaust survivor. Extremely special you met with someone who could teach you so much. Gosh, when I read that article, I had one of those moments of “I have no idea what suffering really is”.

    Feeling so blessed right now.

    These are hilarious! Some are so random but I’m glad that some people actually looking for marriage and relationship help found your site. Now I’m trying to think back to what I searched to find your site.

    “was he lying to me?” Haha! These are great. I get some pretty odd ones, but the weirdest one (in the sense that I cannot figure out how they ended up at my blog) was, “Woman flashes DDD boobs in Publix.” Sorry, bud. None of that over here.

    LOL! I love Google Analytics for this purpose, because I get to learn the totally obscure things that bring people to MY blog! And then I think, wow, they must be so disappointed. My favorite is definitely “husband used chopsticks for the first time, never dropping any food. was he lying to me?” That does sound SUPER suspicious.

      October 27, 2016 at 9:28 am

      isn’t it awesome?! i’d love to hear what bring people to yours too erin – I bet you have some good ones! and agreed – super suspicious to not drop ANY food the first time!

    So funny…I think my favorite is “wife drives topless.” The strange things that some people search for on the internet.

    The katakana read “potorendo” –> Portland, so “rainy Portland”. Maybe you already figured that out but just in case, makes sense, right? My college Japanese classes strike again. I laughed at the multiple chopsticks inquiries. It seems like you’ve done a good job of creating a niche since so many were marriage related.
