      I will share a cupcake with my husband, but I’d prefer it if we each had our own, in all honesty.

      I think that’s an excellent standard to go by.

      Is it a chocolate cupcake? If so, I would have to SERIOUSLY think about sharing! LOL

      I always said I would know when I’m willing to donate more than one night a week of my time to them…

      my roommate says the same thing, except about having children. “if there was one cookie left, someone who should be a mom would give it to her kid, i can’t do that”

      The best advice I ever heard for judging, “The One,” was the following. If your parents died, would you want this person standing next to you at your funeral? I’m happy to say that I have found him.

      That should be their funeral, not your… I’m going to blame a long workday for that one. ^.~

      That’s a bit morbid, Autumn.

      Autumn, why is that the test of a good person or strong relationship? That sounds like some quote you took off a pre-teen girl’s Facebook info. Who even thinks that way?

      A good point, though, Autumn. I once convinced a friend that her current guy was not “the one” after I saw him slouched on a couch looking utterly bored at the visitation when her mother died. She was greeting visitors and trying to hold it together while mourning her mother, while he just looked inconvenienced. Even if he didn’t want to be there (like any of us did?) he could have stood up straight and been by her side.
      The cupcake test is good, too!

      Autumn, I totally agree with your standard. My ex-husband went off to get drunk while I attended the funeral of a beloved uncle. My present long-term boyfriend, when each of my parents died, drove me all the way to another state and stayed right by my side the whole weekend of each memorial service. Plus, my cats like him, even though(or maybe because?) he’s allergic to them.

      Sharing a cupcake is a serious matter – especially if you only have one! Just make sure that the future spouse would be willing to share his too.
