Broken heart, strong liver.

    I saw that you all were great at giving romance advice so I thought I'd come to you with my situation.

    I'm not sure how to interpret my boyfriends signals and I thought maybe you all could help. I'm pretty sure he's going to pop the question any day now because we have been dating for a few years and I really get the "proposal vibe" from him.

    I mesmerize him cause when I talk he has a far off look in his eyes or he falls asleep. He's never given me a gift or anything, but I think that's 'cause he's saving up for a ring. The first time we met, I was donating blood and he was my phlebotomist. He didn't seem very interested in me, so I didn't think I'd ever see him again, but as fate would have it, he accidentally ran into my car with his truck a week later. What a stroke of fate! I was shocked to find out that he was in need of a new liver in order to survive, but it didn't matter to me, I plan to stay with him till the end. The weird thing is, we have the same exact rare blood type. What are the odds?!

    I know he loves me 'cause once he took me to a hotel in a remote location. It was a little odd... the people who had used the room before us had left the bathtub full of ice, but we didn't let that dampen our mood... we just went out on the town, but no drinking! He never lets me have even a tiny bit of alcohol. Sometimes I think he cares about my body more than his own.

    We returned to the hotel and the lobby was swarming with the local police. Someone said some surgical paraphernalia was found by a maid in one of the bathrooms and they were trying to locate the occupants. My boyfriend said we should probably just leave our stuff behind and head straight for the airport. He'd do anything to keep me out of harms way. He's so classy.

    Anyway, everyone I know tells me to leave him. They say he's just using me and that he doesn't love me, but it's so obvious to me that he does. I don't know why people are so blind to all his beautiful qualities. I can tell how much he want's me. I can't wait to share my life with him. Thank you in advance  for any advice.

      Hotels in remote locations can cost and arm and a leg, so he must really care. Many women would give their right arm for someone like that.

          I think you should donate all your heart and time to the relationship. Just a gut feeling.

      Very funny! Another instance of how people can be so gullible! LOL!
      Anyone with a rare blood type who draws blood is no doubt looking for a match. Remote hotels, tubs of ice, and surgical equipment is a sure sign this guy has no intention of getting on anyone's " list" to wait for a new liver. :-)

            OK, well I only was thinking you deserved a wider audience.  I made a dollar out of just talking about it - "why post on forums" or something like that?  And so far I didn't get some troll giving me grief...

    O Rose, thou art sick.
    The invisible worm
    That flies in the night
    In the howling storm

    Has found out thy bed
    Of crimson joy,
    And his dark secret love
    Does thy life destroy.

    Beth - snap him up - he's definitely one of a kind. So many women pray for a guy like yours - one who is so peaceful and calm when you're together that he falls asleep.  One who doesn't even need to express his love.  One who knows that being spontaneous is far more important than delaying a sudden departure just to grab belongings from a hotel room. 

    If you get tired of him, I'll introduce you to the guy I met who borrowed my car while he was in town & it turned out he was sleeping in it. There are several other stellar qualities I could list, but I'm afraid I'd leave something out.  (True story!). 

    Hope you get that proposal soon . . .

      Congratulations! You found someone practical! So many men seek out careers, fancy homes and cars... ludicrous! If he say... delivered pizza, he could have a job, car and home all in one. Why aren't there more women like us that see that diamond in the rough? My man loves me inside out.

        Beauty is only skin deep; true love (and need) goes far beyond that, to the very center of a person.

    do what you feel is right. only you will see the real signs and if youre lying to yourself you would know it. if you feel or just want to make sure that youre not being used for something else, express your concern and just be honest. tell him that you truly love him but just have some real reason that other people have told you. if he really cares about you he would be open to you doing whatever it takes to protect yourself in case something goes bad.
