Successful Story #38: Kathy and Paul

  • December 22, 2010 at 9:27 pm

Whenever Gigi writes a successful story for her blog, she wonders if one day it will be hers… and at what point can she call it successful? She heard the other day that if your relationship lasts three months, then one can begin to hope. So Gigi is still two months away. If she and Jonathan make it to her birthday in March, then Gigi will write about them!! But for this week, Gigi is going to write about Kathy and Paul, a very happy couple that she met a few years ago through her friend Kelly. Successful Story #38: Kathy and Paul – continue reading…

Successful Story #37: Pamela and Patrick

  • November 23, 2010 at 10:34 pm

Most of the successful stories that Gigi writes about are of people who’ve been together for many years, and time has proven it to be a great relationship. Sometimes, however, Gigi does want to write about new relationships who seem to be off to a good start. She has to have hope that things can start out well, and continue to do so!!

Success Story #36: Elena and Jaime

  • October 31, 2010 at 12:47 am

Sometimes finding a success story to write about is not the easiest thing for Gigi. She has friends breaking up left and right. They meet somebody, and then it doesn’t work out. They are together for a while, and something goes wrong. It seems harder and harder to make things work. But some people do make it work out. They stick through the bad, to get back to the good. And that is what makes for a good relationship… to not give in right away. Success Story #36: Elena and Jaime – continue reading…

Success Story #35: Oscar and Wendy

  • October 15, 2010 at 7:37 pm

Gigi once saw a movie, Good Luck Chuck, in which every time that the actor ends a relationship with a woman, she finds the man of her dreams and gets married… so that women begin wanting to date him thinking he will bring them good luck. At times, Gigi feels like she is the female version of this!! Success Story #35: Oscar and Wendy – continue reading…

Success Story #34: John and Clarissa

  • October 2, 2010 at 12:13 am

Normally Gigi writes most of these blogs, with a few words written by one of the couple in the success story. When John said on face book that he’d be glad to tell me his story, I knew it would be beautifully written… After all he is a musician!! Success Story #34: John and Clarissa – continue reading…

Success Story #33: Tina and Gary

  • September 25, 2010 at 1:57 am

Gigi wonders how much time has to pass before a relationship can be counted as a success story. Only one of the 32 stories written about here has ended up in a break-up. So far, all the others are still happily chugging along. In the past 33 weeks since we started our blog, I have been able to find a different success story for each week, which is a good thing, and gives Gigi hope that there is a happy future for her and Jean-Claude. So far they are lasting more than any local men Gigi has dated in the past few years. Success Story #33: Tina and Gary – continue reading…

Success story #32: Anita and Francisco

  • September 19, 2010 at 6:01 pm

It seems as though Gigi’s family has had better luck than her in their choice of a marriage partner… such is life!! A few weeks ago, I wrote about my mother’s older sister, and her marriage that was extremely happy and successful until the day her husband died. This week, Gigi wants to tell you about her other aunt Rosalba, her mom’s younger sister, and how happy she was. Sadly both this aunt and her husband are both now dead, but they were together for many many years… from their youth until the dead they died.

Success story #31: Alicia and Jose

  • September 10, 2010 at 8:50 pm

Face book has brought so many new people into Gigi’s life. Alicia is one of them. She also grew up in Mallorca, and they have many friends in common, which brought them together. Alicia has great comments on our blog questions, and as she is one of the few happily married people, she sweetly agreed to share her story with us.

Success Story #30: Rosalba and Jaime

  • September 4, 2010 at 2:55 am

One of the most successful marriages that Gigi ever saw was that of her aunt Rosalba and her uncle Jaime. They loved each other to the very day he died last year, and they were together for longer than Gigi can remember. She always loved hearing their story from her mother, because it showed her that true love really can conquer all, if you try hard enough. Success Story #30: Rosalba and Jaime – continue reading…

Success Story #29: Hannah and Rick

  • August 29, 2010 at 10:36 am

Gigi is always on the lookout for success stories, whether they are dating, engaged or married. Since starting this blog, she has had three sets of friends get engaged… and what can be more successful than that? She has only had one of her 29 successful stories go wrong… sadly that does happen at times. They were only dating, and it didn’t work out… But on the bright side are all the stories that continue to be a success, and Gigi knows of quite a few more.
