Dating can be fun and it feels good to be loved by someone. But dating someone does not mean they love you or you love them, it just means you are dating! You don’t want to get caught up with the wrong person. Dates come and go, but you have to live with yourself. That’s why it is so important to chose who you date wisely.
Avoid these people:
A playa. Sure he’s hot, but if you know a guy (or a girl) sleeps around, avoid them. Chances are he’s got something you don’t want to catch.
A cheat. If he or she cheats on you once - never mind twice - avoid making this person your special partner.
An addict. A person who drinks too much or takes drugs is no good for you. Keep your future bright by choosing someone with a future.
An abuser. If they hit you even once, or you know they’ve beaten up previous partners, run a mile. Even if they say they will never do it to you because they love you so much.
They’re wrong, but why are you attracted to these people? Being needy and lonely can make you vulnerable to forming relationships with anyone who shows interest in you. You may be looking for love, attention, or affection. Sometimes the word love is incorrectly given to these feelings.
Building a healthy relationship with yourself is the most important step to having a healthy relationship with someone else. If you don’t feel good about yourself or your life wait until you are ready to date.
