It is important to understand what a toxic partnership consists of so that you know when to remove yourself. It can come in many disguises and start out slowly in the early stages of meeting someone new. They can lure you in with never-ending compliments and romantic gestures that keep you wanting more. They come in fast and furious and you fall hard due to their aggressive attraction towards you.
If your heart is continually feeling broken it’s time to fix it. Don’t give up on love and dating; just be smarter with who you let into your life. There is no room for game playing, ghosting or unhealthy red flags of any sort.
Dating should be fun and adventurous. You always have the option to walk away when you don’t feel a connection. It shouldn’t feel uncomfortably forced or one-sided and you should have a good idea if there is a connection within the first date. If you don’t feel anything or you don’t have much in common with them, move on. Be true to your self and always have respectful boundaries.
