The inspiration for the But I Do storyline came from my several experiences at hosting university events as an author and Love and Romance expert for publications like Seventeen and Cosmopolitan and talk shows like those on RT TV. At each event, girls confided that they wanted to attract guys, but felt like they had to look and act a certain way to do that. This troubled me since every girl has worth and appealing traits. I believe that what is most important in building genuine relationships is that she has confidence and is true to herself. This is the message of But I Do.
