Let the men in your life provide insight into the male psyche. There are some classic mistakes that women make with men. You have to live it or have your friends live it -- sometimes multiple times -- for the lessons to kick in. But, boy, if every woman knew these classic mistakes, and to avoid them, before plunging into the dating world in their early 20s, what a different experience love could be for those ladies. However, when she confronted him on this, he backtracked and said he was just joking around. If you do, then they consider that you've had fair warning. This is such an old-timey classic mistake that it's crazy to think there are women who still fall for it, but they do. If you’re having a good time then relax and go with it.
Dating Tip: Think of your new relationship as a movie.
Sit back and watch it play out—let things evolve naturally. When we project what we get into trouble when nit-picking situations and making something out of nothing.
So classic that I honestly wish a book was made of them -- a rule book -- and women had to read it in high school. As high as the divorce rate is, chances are a guy who gets involved with you while he's with his wife is doing it because he wants two women -- not one. If he swears he's leaving his wife soon, what harm can it do to walk away and tell him to call you once the divorce is final?
But there is no Relationship 101 unless you count the ones in the School of Hard Knocks. Although people do hear that old adage, "People don't change," no one really takes it seriously until he or she is faced with a person who needs to change. "Oh, he just needs someone who understands him," "If I do everything for him, he'll feel like he wants to reciprocate," etc. And if you already married, carefully consider what your next step is and whether it should be divorce. I've seen far too many intelligent women get involved with a guy with a horrible romantic history who then goes on to cement the pattern with them. Because they thought they would be the "exception." I've heard: "We were such good friends, I thought he'd never pull that on me." I've heard: "He cheated on his wife, but that was 10 years ago." I've heard: "He broke off two engagements, but this time he says he's really ready and has met the right person." Not that you're definitely NOT the exception -- hey, maybe you are -- but chances are, you're not. If he says, "I'd really love to get married, but I've found it so hard to find someone I'm compatible with," women hear: They don't hear, "I find most women are incompatible with me, and I'm not even considering that this might be my fault." I had one friend whose new man told her right off the bat that he gets tired of women after two months. But men often give you a warning for a good reason -- they are testing you to see if you will stick around after hearing about their chronic unemployment, cheating history, or addictions.
