There's one thing you must not ever do when dating.
But before I tell you what it is, here’s a quick activity for you.
Take a large denomination bill out of your purse, say a $100 bill, or even a $50 or $20 if you have either of those. The biggest amount you have handy.
Now take this bill and crumple it up. Really crush it. Now drop it on the floor and step on it. Stomp on it if you’ve got some aggression to get off your chest.
Now, pick it up and smooth it out.
Does this bill still have value? Can you still go and spend it at a local store? Sure you can!
It’s a bit dirty and it’s feelings are probably hurt, but it’s perfectly good, right?
That’s you. No matter what you’ve been through, what others have said or done, you still have immense value.
The worst mistake I've ever seen a woman commit when dating is devaluing herself and forgetting her worth. I hear a variation of this a lot: "I'm not worthy of somebody good so I settle for whatever I can get."
Devaluing yourself usually leads to desperation and settling for a guy who is in no way an equal or a good match. And a poor match leads to a miserable existence for you.
How do you keep from devaluing yourself while dating?
Don't be afraid to walk away.
Not only do you have choices other than the guys that treat you like crap, you have the ultimate trump card in your back pocket...you can also be with NOBODY and still be fine. We women got it like that.
Don't take this so seriously.
Yes dating and marriage are serious because you could potentially end up with the wrong person and end up unhappy. But this is one of life's many experiences and even if it doesn't work out, you won't die. And since you won't die, you might as well have fun with this activity just as you would with any other.
Remember who YOU are.
Along with other fabulousness, you're a great woman who deserves a great man, nothing less. If someone has a problem with you being confident, yet choosy, that's their problem, not yours. Your life is yours to live and no one will suffer from the consequences of bad choices but you.
Make your OWN choices. You'll be much better off for it.
