When you’re in love with someone you think they’d be a joy to have around for anything! You get in over your head and make commitments to the person you can never take back. Or you share things with them you realize were better left unsaid. Learn from many that have traveled down the wrong path before, and don’t do this.
Women put up with a lot of games. We’re told not to scare guys off, not to chase them or show too much interest. It leaves us re-wording every single text message just to make sure we’re not coming on too strong. And it also leaves us in a place where, if a guy comes in and wants to sweep us off our feet and give us his all, we’re so happy for the change of pace that we can fail to question it. But wait! Even though we wish more of the good guys would speed things up and commit, the fact is that most of them take it slow. It’s how they function. So, along with being grateful for the rare ones, be cautious and question why they’re not part of the status quo. They might just be too needy.
I truly empathize with the plight of the “crazy” woman. You know the Alex Forrest in Fatal Attraction type of women. (I still haven’t seen that movie by the way.) I empathize with these types because while their actions are inexcusable, morally unsound and often illegal, it’s not hard for me to see how they could get there. By now you’re probably thinking, “Yup, she’s one of those crazies.” But I’m not. 1.Because I believe it’s best not to fight for a man who clearly doesn’t want me and 2.Because I’ve never been in a situation where my expectations for a person were so lofty that when they failed to reach them I lost my sanity. But again, I can see how women get there. I know women who’ve gotten there. Truth is, many of us women-folk can be so wrapped up in our emotions we honestly lose sight of our logic. And we don’t have to be crazy in the Fatal Attraction sense to experience this. Don’t believe me? Check out these typical behaviors and thoughts women share that men might deem a little… off.
It’s said that you always meet someone just when you weren’t looking. It’s said that love finds you. And, for any single female, these sayings can get annoying. Are you supposed to walk around with your head down, not paying attention to your male counterparts? Ceasing the search for love doesn’t mean you have to become a cold Beyotch to the male race. But, there are some behaviors you should avoid because they will only land you in something you think is love. Like these:
The dating world is one of games. We are taught all sorts of ways to hide or thoughts and feelings. All sorts of ways to make one thing look another way. And so, when we meet someone who doesn’t play by the rules, we often think, “What is wrong with this person? You can’t just…say that!” While it’s true some people are just needy or overly aggressive, some have complete self confidence, and just don’t want to play the game. So you don’t necessarily need to freak out if a man does this:
They say that love makes you feel invincible. And that’s a problem because, well, no one is ever invincible. But they make decisions based on that false feeling, and can end up feeling like fools. When you’re in the early stages of a relationship and are falling head over heels, the things you and your new mate reveal and do with each other can make and break a couple with the quickness.
