Trust takes time to establish and showing vulnerability by divulging every detail about yourself, is very alluring to catfishers and insincere suitors. Use your instincts and intelligence every time you go out on any date. Don’t assume they are always there for the same reasons you are. Use common sense, and please listen closely to your gut instincts. Don’t give out too much information before you know anyone.
Be very aware of falling in love with someone too quickly, as this does not allow you enough time to really get to know and trust who they are as their authentic self. It is way too easy to overlook some of the important warning signs or red flags, when you are already smitten with your new partner after a month or two.
Taking time out for yourself each week actually helps you appreciate your partner more!
This happens because you have time to miss each other and honor some of your own needs at the same time. You look forward to seeing them again! It is so important that you both have a few separate interests and continue to nurture who you are as an individual as well.
Your boyfriend does not seem to feel any regret about cheating on you and he is keeping his options open by staying connected with this other woman. This is not OK. If you allow the men in your life to disregard your feelings and play on your self-worth, you will continue to attract these similar dating patterns.
Being too picky is not a good thing but overlooking key principals that are important to you are just as bad if you want a relationship of substance.
