◊ if a man is into you, nothing will keep him from seeing you or contacting you.
◊ stop making excuses for a man and his behavior.
◊ allow your intuition (or spirit) to save you from heartache.
◊ stop trying to change yourself for a relationship that’s not meant to be.
◊ slower is better.
◊ never live your life for a man before you find what makes you truly happy.
◊ if a relationship ends because the man was not treating you as you deserve then heck no, you can’t “be friends.” a friend wouldn’t mistreat a friend.
◊ do not settle. if you feel like he is stringing you along, then he probably is.
◊ don’t stay because you think “it will get better.” you’ll be mad at yourself a year later for staying when things are not better.
◊ the only person you can control in a relationship is you. always have your own set of friends separate from his.
◊ maintain boundaries in how a guy treats you. if something bothers you, speak up.
◊ never let a man know everything. he may use it against you later.
◊ you can not change a man’s behavior; change comes from within.
◊ and NEVER borrow someone else’s man.
◊ oh lord ! if he cheated with you, he will cheat on you !
◊ a man will only treat you the way you ALLOW him to treat you.
◊ all men are NOT dogs.
◊ you should not be the one doing all the bending… compromise is a two-way street. you need time to heal between relationships… there is nothing cute about baggage… deal with your issues before pursuing a new relationship.
◊ you should never look for someone to COMPLETE you, a relationship consists of two WHOLE individuals… look for someone complimentary… not supplementary.
◊ dating is fun… even if he doesn’t turn out to be mr. right.
◊ make him miss you sometimes… when a man always knows where you are, and you’re always readily available to him - he takes it for granted.
◊ don’t fully commit to a man who doesn’t give you everything that you need. keep him in your radar but get to know others.
