While you're with someone like this, spending your time and energy with someone who isn't who you're truly looking for and isn't that full package, you take time away from being with getting to know someone who is on your page, who does want what you want - and most importantly - who wants to give you what you're looking for! That means missing out on the many wonderful potential partners who are average looking, or even quiet and shy.

When a couple gets into a rut and one problem after the next crops up over and over again, something needs to happen to upset the routine. It appears many of the men had some similar traits.

Every time I visitsd I would bring him geoerices, tidy up, do laundry and I always showed up with little gifts, little tokens of my love and affection. In a sense, you seek comfort in that familiar scenario — even if it is one filled with angst. Once the car seemed to be just right, there was still something not quite there.

I grew up hating myself, feeling so ashamed of myself and my family. Using this example, a woman who was aware of her why might have spent less time in bad relationships, permitting more openness to partners who are a better match. Why are so many women always falling for men who are womanizers, untruthful, who want other women, alcohol and or drugs? But we ve quarreld several times and when we do, I notice he is hottempered and says unkind words. Only you know in your heart if you are attracting another wrong guy again, but if you consider all these points, and make a list of the pros and cons of what you are getting out of this relationship, your answer should become clearer to you.
Has this ever happened in your life? My whole life, I always knew what I wanted but I could never seem to fully grasp it because my wants never matched what the day lent me.
