It's important to note that this also applies to a guy who was great in the beginning of the relationship and then completely changed. Having a bad day or a bad week is understandable. That's not what I'm talking about though. What I'm talking about is a continued pattern of unacceptable behavior. A lot of girls trap themselves by staying in the relationship because of how great he used to be. They'll wait around in dead-end relationships for months or even years, and are sustained only by the hope that he will one day be nice and charming again. I don't think I need to explain why this is a terrible, and often devastating, mistake.
So ladies, celebrate the fact that you are compassionate beings. However, remember that while it's one of our greatest strengths, it can also be our greatest weakness so be sure to use it at the right time and in the right situation.
