Love rules our hearts and our hearts don’t always lead us in the right direction. Our reactions towards someone we are attracted to can be premature or not well thought out. It is an addictive endorphin and like any drug, it can make people act out of character.
Both of your girls will be leaving home within the next five years and living their own lives, so where will that leave you when they are gone? Do they think it is fair that you should have to live alone because they don’t want to see you with another man?
There is always a happy medium that can be implemented to keep your partner and your best friend on civil terms with each other. Be realistic about why things are a problem between them and hear what they are telling you.
When you are meeting someone for the first time you really need to pay close attention and listen to what they are saying. If your date is adamant about not wanting to be in a relationship BELIEVE THEM!
It is difficult to find a compatible committed partner and when we do, we hold on tighter than we should in some cases. There are a lot of mixed messages going on and we don’t always know where we stand in our relationships.
This can bring out a neediness in some men and women which makes them cling possessively to their partners. This is never a good thing and can become very suffocating! We have all heard about the Stage 5 Clinger!
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.
