It’s A New Year And A New Me: Ways I Won’t Let A Man Treat Me In 2013

January 11, 2013 ‐ By Julia Austin


Just as everyone is sitting down to assess their plan of action with their diets, their workout regiments, their careers, and their finances, the new year is the perfect time to sit down and assess your plan of action with your love life. If things didn’t go the way you’d hoped in 2012, for the most part that was no stroke of bad luck. It was an accumulation of wrong decisions, shortsightedness, and perhaps failure to respect yourself and your needs. Don’t just charge into 2013 saying, “My love life will be better this year!” Ask yourself how?What will you consciously do, or perhaps not do, to improve your love life? A great way to begin is to make a list of behavior and treatment you just won’t tolerate. This might help you get started with your list.

    I almost didn’t read the article because of the 15 page clicks. Glad I did! This list is pretty good.

    I really do want to read the article, but clicking on 15 pages on a Friday evening after a hard day’s work is really asking for much…

    You guys seriously have to find a way to shorten these articles.

    This article is on point. Throughout my marriage I have dealt with just about every issue mentioned. Over the years, I have learned that there is no reasoning with an insecure man. If staying in the marriage/relationship is what you decide to do because the love you have for him is too strong to walk away from just yet, understand that you MUST love yourself even more and stand your ground in order to not lose your mind!

    First of all, let me state that I love this site. I visit this site at least once a day. A few weeks ago MN explained the reasons for having 15 pages per article. It kept us, the viewers longer on the site, you guys were making more money etc etc. I totally understand this, However, I think there should be a balance between getting a message across and “making money”. I am not willing to click through 15 pages, therefore you are not keeping me on this site longer. It’s the exact opposite, as soon as I see a 15 page article, I close the page. Isn’t there any way to limit the amount of pages to for example 5 or 6,(with more items per page)? That to me would be a lot more reasonable. Thank you for the lovely site ! And other viewers, please like my comment if you agree with me !
