Find a guy who compliments you on your kindness, or intelligence.Or find someone who loves the way you laugh so hard you snort, or the way you put 100% into everything that you do. If the guy you’re dating is complicating your life now….imagine how much more complicated life will be when you add a mortgage and three kids!
Don’t go after a man who treats you like you are beneath him.
You are allowed to be powerful, confident and successful. If you’re going for someone who can’t handle your ambitions and power they are not the one for you.
I get it, trust me…dating after a break up is terrifying. “You fought, you loved, you lost, walk tall.” Acknowledge your past but free yourself from it and walk tall into that dating world. Guys who are scared of strong women who are a force of nature are not one’s you want to settle down and have a relationship with.
You were comfortable with someone and you have to start all over again. Thanks Mark Sloan for this beautiful piece of advice. When you hold your standard high you will be surprised the kind of people who will be drawn towards you and the ones who will run for the trees when they realize they can’t control you. They are happy in their relationship and hopefully before you know it they will be happy for you and your new boo.
