1. Take action!
“I know that he knows that I like him, but I don’t know if he likes me.”
Even the most convoluted situations can be simplified by taking action, so why not ask him if he likes you? Society has fabricated this idea into our minds: Men are supposed to ask the first question; buy the first drink; set the first date; and of course, initiate that first perfect kiss. You want your relationship to begin like a fairytale—we get it.
Every sweetheart deserves a romantic and caring partner. You work hard all week long, doing whatever it is you love, and at times, hate. All you desire is someone to rejoice in your happiness, and be empathetic to your frustrations—we understand.
But be careful not to make false assumptions that will unnecessarily hinder your relationship—like the one aforementioned—that men are supposed to make all the moves. Remember, there is a huge discrepancy between going after what you want and being complacent with what’s given to you. Sitting around waiting for men to do all the work is a mistake because you hold back on a large selection of guys that could be right for you; relationships that you may never encounter if you don’t make the move.
So at last, we reveal obvious hints that will help you solve the mysteries to the romantic crossword. To the strong and independent women of America, this one is for you.
2. Ignore that which is ignorable
“I met him at a bar, so he must be a loser.”
A lot of women carry a huge burden on their shoulders. They think that if they meet a guy at a bar, he is automatically shady. But this is an erroneous belief. Such a notion of the “perfect time” or “perfect place” does not exist, or if it does, it does so rarely. Meaning, these things are unimportant when it comes to relationships.
It might help to take that weight off your shoulders. It’s getting a bit hot and heavy, and you don’t want to drop the ball with your Great Ace. Let’s think about this one for a moment. Your intention of going out is to spend time with friends and to relieve stress. But the people you meet at your get-away spots are likely quite similar in this regard, and probably looking for the exact same thing—to hang out with their friends, meet some interesting people, and get away from the monotony of life. Remember, these are the places you’re supposed to meet people. It’s why they’re there in the first place!
This does not imply, however, that you should go against your intuitions, or regress in your standards. If you think someone is sketchy because, well, he is sketchy, then maybe time and place do come into the Kodak It is still perfectly normal to keep your guard up. What we’re saying is to keep the big picture in mind. It’s very reasonable for two paths to cross, therefore making an important point to emphasize: don’t be quick to judge someone because you think he was at the wrong place at the wrong time. After all, so were you!
