Thanks for the questions Ginny. First off, we don’t really care, yet thanks for asking and here’s our take: We don’t personally know or have met Jessica’s new man Eric Johnson, yet we believe a few caution flags should be thrown immediately.
First off, he’s a former athlete that has had his career ended prematurely due to a variety of reasons, including injuries and other circumstances, so we know he is missing the limelight; he’s missing the attention, and Jessica brings him back into the spot light. He’s a good looking guy; 6’3″ and 240lbs and a graduate of Yale, so he’s no dummy. He found his ticket to get back into the “game” and he’s reserving his seat.
Secondly, he’s 31 years old. Being a former athlete myself; accustomed to special treatment and attention, he’s not ready for a commitment… meaning marriage. If you’ve read our book you know about the RMS… the relationship maturity scale; and my boy Eric is not ready. Again, we don’t know him, we are making a judgement call on this one… yet since you asked; this is what we think.
Thirdly… rumor has it, Jessica is missing a few screws upstairs, so based on our research, you attract what you are ready for. With that being said, what kind of guy would really be attracted to a serious relationship with Jessica? Just a theory.
Prediction: He’ll work the relationship for all it’s worth… then move on.
