Ruthie and Michael Dean grew up just down the street from one another, but not being fans of convenience, they fell in love long-distance while Ruthie lived in China and Michael lived in Germany. Now happily married, the Deans love to run, take advantage of Sunday coffee dates (without technology), and can often be spotted driving around Nashville in Michael’s classic Ford truck.

“Texting is not a real connection. Text-based relationships can bring a false sense of intimacy —the same way following your favorite blogger doesn’t mean you actually know him or her. It’s easy to feel exhilarated and even connected by rapid-fire, flirty text banter, but text chemistry doesn’t hold any weight offscreen. Too many settle for this emotionally addictive buzz in lieu of a real connection.”
Ruthie Dean, Real Men Don't Text: A New Approach to Dating

“We accept the kind of love we think we deserve.”
Ruthie Dean, Real Men Don't Text: A New Approach to Dating

“Confidence is the quiet assurance you are enough.”
Ruthie Dean, Real Men Don't Text: A New Approach to Dating

“Sometimes heroism is nothing more than patience, curiosity, and a refusal to panic.”
Leif Enger, Peace Like a River
