Ask the Eye, Don’t Wait On Pumpkin, To Get A Little Frisky..

July 26, 2010

Dear Eye View,
 I am in my late 40s, dating a wonderful woman the same age. We’ve known each other for seven years, been best friends for five, and have dated for two of those. Why the wait? My girlfriend is a widow. She married her high-school sweetheart when she was 30’s and he died in an accident less than a year later. Understandably, she has been hesitant to move forward with any commitment to another guy. I decided a long time ago that I wanted to marry this awesome woman, but I have been sensitive to her need to move slowly.  When I finally thought the time was right, I asked her to marry me. She said that she wasn’t quite ready and she wanted to hold off on marriage plans until her cat died. (Strange as it sounds, I felt it was a reasonable request since she and her husband got this cat together when they were married.) This cat, Pumpkin, was 16 when we made the agreement and seemed to be on his last legs. Eye, that was almost three years ago. I hate to pressure my girlfriend to break our agreement, but this cat is a freak of nature that is ruining my chance at happiness! What to do?

Non Cat Lover

Dear Non Cat Lover

It is important to share in traditions as she did with her first husband. Since Pumpkin has 10 cat lives I would recommend starting a new tradition with her. Get another cat so that you and she can start a new tradition and Pumpkin a new friend. If you can’t beat the freak of nature, become a freak of nature…Then you can get a little frisky and get your freak on…

Hope this helps
