Strong women are better than that.
If you’re single, your line of potential suitors is usually made up of weirdos, emotionally unavailable douchebags, ex-boyfriends and guys you’d actually want to date. But even if there are plenty of fish in the sea, a lot of them kinda suck.
And when the stars align and by some miracle you find a man you like, it’s really easy to get excited too fast. But there’s a big danger in placing all your eggs in one basket. You should be smarter than that.
There are people who meet and instantly fall in love and are together forever. But that’s more of an exception than a rule. You shouldn’t assume someone like an exclusive until they’re actually exclusive.
When you’re first getting to know someone who you instantly click with, there’s a tendency to overinflate the parts of their personality you like and ignore the parts you don’t.
He makes you laugh and you focus on that. Not that he hasn’t had a job in six months. You think about how protective he is and leave out the part about his anger issues. You want things to go well for once in your love life. But you have to resist the urge to accept less out of fear of being alone.
Essential to protect your hart is to take the time to get to know someone before you commit to them. You should wait. Don’t give in just because you’re tired of waiting.
Force yourself back into reality. Don’t daydream about the guy you like. See what’s really happening. Pump the breaks on your emotions and find some other ways to distract yourself before you get too caught up.
The last thing you want to do is settle. Strong women would rather be alone than settle for mediocre men.
