It’s about listening to your heart, and knowing when to take a break.
Even when you might really enjoy what you’re doing. If any of this sounds familiar, I encourage you to the same.
Dear Jaded Straight Men, I know many women have failed you.
I know your heart has endured a lot of stomping, your pride has been shattered, your trust has been compromised and your spirit has been abused.
My heart needed a break and I didn’t want to be jaded. If someone was mean to you, if someone hurt you, or you’re just tired of it all. Because one day a person will walk into your life and it will all make sense.
You’ll never look back, and you’ll be glad you waited for that person.
It wasn’t worth waiting for them, and they soon left. The guys had used me for what they needed, and when I was no longer of use to them, they left.
When was the last time you took a girl on a date and courted her?
As long as you fail to be honest with yourself, you will continue to run into problems with potential partners. If you want to get to know her better, ask her out.
Ask her to spend time with you during the day — you know, like when the sun is still out and you’re sober.
If that girl at the bar is someone you’re interested in dating, ask for her number. But remember that she is a human being who has likely been hurt and had her heart stomped on — just like you.
My New Year’s resolution this year was giving up dating.
