April: Will You Wait for 100% in Love?

Featured author Deb Caletti says, "Quinn's grandmother advises: 'Wait. Wait for 100 percent.' Do you agree?"


Martha Brockenbrough said...

I think that's good advice--as long as the 100 percent isn't referring to a checklist, which altogether too many people have for love.

Erin said...

Absolutely. And I liked in the book how it said--if you're asking yourself, am I in love with this person? you're probably not.

Melissa Walker said...

Yes! The checklist is hard--you can't get everything from one person. That's what family/friends are for. But being in love? 100 percent is the only way to be! (Which doesn't mean there aren't arguments... but it means there's a hug afterwards!)

Such good insight here. 100 percent commitment to your love, for certain!
