Earlier this month I posted some stories about the basics of dating and more particularly about women losing their attitudes. One person commented that the reason that women have attitudes is because of what happened in a past relationship. However, should our past keep us away from opportunities in our present?
A couple of years ago I was dating a guy that I really liked, however, he didn’t like me as much as I liked him. He ended up breaking up with me and I was really upset about it, but at the same time I was in college and couldn’t focus on it. So I swore off guys and threw myself into my school work.
I had some guys that would try to talk to me, but I wouldn’t give them any time because my focus was on school and they didn’t fit in. It wasn’t until one of my close friends made me aware of what I was doing that I faced what happened and reopened myself to dating. I realized that I can’t hold people at arm’s length because of what one person did.
Being treated wrong and breaking up with someone is hard to deal with, but it has to be dealt with and not put off. Those feelings can’t be placed on someone else to deal with, that’s not fair. The time has to be put in to deal with the feelings and move forward.
