Best dating advice i ever got
When you’re open to being vulnerable, you’re being authentic.
Had I trusted my instincts and walked away, I would have felt better about myself and had lovely memories instead of scars.
When I was in my mid-20s I had my first serious relationship, and although the guy was clearly not The One, I clung desperately.
One day, struggling against an overwhelming undertow of foreboding and panic about the whole thing, I asked a male friend what to do. ” His answer: “sometimes, a person just doesn’t want anything from you.” I was devastated.
In all the years that I’ve dated, I’ve been given plenty of advice on how to date right. My date one night mentioned it in passing and it struck me, like a jolt of lightening.
“Make sure you play it cool.” “Don’t talk about your ex.” “Think before you say anything.” Instead of helping me on my dating journey, these pieces of advice only made me confused about what I should do on a date. So, here it is, the best dating advice I ever received.
