We sat on the second floor and once I was finished complaining about all the delicious-sounding menu items that were fatally full of gluten and ultimately decided on a less-menacing vegetable stir-fry, we started chatting about our days, as people do.

It's like on Say Yes to the Dress when the producers ask the brides - why is your fiance the perfect guy for you?

He loves me! He wants to give me everything I want!"
