It's not rocket science.
Ladies, listen to me: the moment you feel the need to prove your worth to a guy is the exact moment you should walk away.
No ifs. No buts.
It doesn't matter what stage of a relationship you're in. The person you're with should be with you because they like most of the things about you, and the other stuff they like enough to tolerate.
I don't have the stats and figures yet to back this up, but I'm pretty sure it's science.
It's easy to lose yourself in the emotional dramas of love and lust. You feel attached. People seem irreplaceable. It's a vicious cycle that can only be broken with cold, hard logic.
If someone wants to be with you, they'll be with you.
Throw away the idea that you'll never find someone else, because if that's your only reason for holding on then I can almost guarantee you that there is someone better for you out there.
Stop making excuses for the person you're with and speculating the causes for their hurtful behavior. Its a complete and TOTAL waste of your time.
The guy who likes you just as you are, and doesn't need a resume or references to back up your awesomeness.
Those guys are out there, and they are much more worth your time.
