Alice Crisci has done the unthinkable. She gave up her two dogs, her rocks through cancer treatment, in order to keep her hyper-allergic fiancé. Would you give up unconditional love for conditional love? She recounts her heartbreak here.
Alice Crisci survived cancer. But she’s suffered two miscarriages and struggled with dating and finances and career and identity and purpose. She knows she can either struggle like a champ or struggle like a bitch. Here’s what this warrior chose.
Alice Crisci found out she was pregnant…against all odds. But then reality struck: “Four hours later, the ER doc confirmed my worst fears: there was no more pregnancy. I sobbed harder than I sobbed when I was diagnosed with cancer.” But she chooses hope.
Alice Crisci started dating a wonderful man. Except, due to commitment fear, checks out for 3-4 days at a time. No notice, no warning, unfriends her from Facebook, doesn’t return calls, texts or emails. Here’s why she won’t break up with him for that.
Will Alice Crisci ever hear the words she’s been longing to hear: “You are just right…Will you marry me?” At 35, it’s been 20 years since the only proposal she ever had. And she doesn’t even have a diamond to prove it. What does it take to find the right mate?
“Time out. Umm, I don’t have any nipples.” He said, “Oh, okay. Are you going to get some?” I said, “Well, eventually, yes.” With a slight shrug of the shoulders, he did what any man would’ve done. He said “okay” and went in for more kisses.
