Green is the type of guy you would bring home to mom.  He is nice, good looking, smart, funny...well, then why is he still single?  Green is very shy (painfully shy), and completely enveloped in his career.  He has always been like that for as long as I have known him.  Other guys would be running around using girls, but not him. He would be more interested in working out and reading business magazines.  I used to make fun of him and tell him that he was wasting his time, but all his hard work paid off.  He is a professional athlete, and very successful. I will never forget the day of the draft. This was probably the most exciting and painful time in Green's life.  Green was dating a girl that he met at the gym.  She seemed really nice, and he was head over heels in love with her.  They were only dating for about six months at that time, but he loved everything about her. She knew that he was devoted to his career, and kept saying that she would be happy being one of those "baller wives."  Green was so in love with her that he decided on draft day, once he got signed by a team, he would propose to her. I was honored that I got to help him pick the ring. The ring was absolutely gorgeous! 3 carat solitaire, with absolutely no flaws.  Everything was set for the big day.  The morning of the draft, Green decided that he would make breakfast, go buy some roses, and surprise her at her apartment.  He was flying high, and it seemed nothing could bring him down.  Green got to her apartment with the gourmet breakfast, the roses, and the biggest smile anyone had ever seen.  She opened the door, and a box sat in the middle of the floor.  The box had all Green's stuff in it.  She tried not to even look at him when she spoke, because she was trying to hold back the tears.  She took his hand and said, "Green, I don't even know what to say. You are the best thing that has happened to me, and I do love you.  I just can't continue lying to both of us. Your dream is not mine. I don't want to travel around the country, or be home most of the time by myself. I know I should have let you know sooner that I was feeling this way, but I was really trying to tell myself that I was ok with this.  I am so sorry, Green.  I am so sorry.  I am so sorry."  There it was.  The day that broke Green's heart, and the day that changed his life forever.  He got drafted by a great team, but you could still see the pain in his smile.  He has not seen he
