Look for an open door to discuss the dating relationship and what you see that may be harmful.
When I was in my early 20’s, my father told me that the best way to find what I was looking for was to write down all of the qualities I wanted in a partner. I still remember a few, because they’re qualities I continue to look for — creative, gets along with their family, down to earth, ambitious, has a “career” and not just a “job” (a very important distinction for a career-oriented gal like myself).
Harsh realities made me defensive and stuck in denial.
But deep down, I struggled so much because I knew they were true.
I've said it because I don't want to hurt a guy's feelings by telling him exactly what I don't like about him.
The answer is easy: you step in and do whatever it takes to break them up. Okay, we know that answer won’t win the million-dollar prize.
The truth is, when it comes to dating and relating, there really are very few black and white answers.
Part of my job as dating coach is to occasionally dole out some of these harsh truths. Your friends and family care too much about your feelings to tell you.
I understand your romantic life is a personal and touchy subject.
