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.
