1. A man won’t let go if he really loves you.
Do not hold on to someone who has let go of you. He does not love you
and does not value having you. Believe me, he will not let go if he
really loves you. There is another reason he is not willing to tell.
2. Do not look for reasons why he ended the relationship.
There is only one reason why he ended your relationship. He just does
not love you. Do not waste your time thinking of reasons or what you
should have done. Move on and be open to a man who will truly love you.
3. Do not get hang up on your past.
Do not nag or distrust your current boyfriend just because your ex hurt
you. Do not treat him or the relationship the same way. Do not
compare. He will not react the same way as your ex. Do not be worried
that your simple mistakes will cause him to look for another girl. What
happened with your ex was not your fault. It was not because you
didn’t guard him enough or you didn’t make him happy enough.
4. Do not look into images.
How many times have you met a girl who didn’t have the best image in
school or at the office, but you get to know the girl and found out she
was actually extremely nice? Do not rely on images. Oftentimes, it is
far from reality. Do not fear men just because your
“supposedly” perfect ex-boyfriend mistreated you.
5. Always have your own set of rules.
Set your limits on how far you’d go for a guy. It’s perfectly
ok to give and do everything as long as it’s worth it. And it’s
worth it if the guy is treating you right.
6. Do not be scared to lose him.
Don’t be scared that he’ll break up with you. Once you are
afraid of losing him, you easily can be taken advantage. Be strong and
if something is unacceptable, do not accept it and speak up.
7. Avoid calling your guy.
It’s a guy thing. The relationship will definitely be better if
it’s the guy who’s calling, not the girl. He will get tired of
you if you keep on calling. He will lose interest and challenge. More
so, he will get annoyed. But it’s a girl thing also that your
fingers get too itchy until you dial his number. But avoid as much as
possible. Call only if really needed (like checking if your suspicions
8. There is a guy who will value you.
There is a guy out there who can make you feel valued, appreciated, and
loved. And I mean, not just during your first few weeks together. So
don’t lose hope. Don’t settle for a lesbian if you are not
attracted to women. There is a man out there who can love you like a
girl can (*wink*).
Also, do not believe him when he says it’s just the way he really
is. He’s not the sweet or expressive-type. Remember during your
first few weeks together? Where has that sweet guy gone? He simply is
not that into you anymore.
9. Always be the only one, no matter what.
Do not ever fall for a guy who has another girl, be it his wife,
girlfriend, or any girl that he says he just can’t get rid of for
whatever reason. If you truly believe that he loves you and for some
reason, he can’t leave or let go of another girl, then you are no
different from any ordinary mistress.
10. He must respect you.
No matter how long the relationship has been, he should always show
respect towards you.
11. If he fooled you, end it.
Philandering once is enough. You can never trust nor respect the person
12. Never start a relationship the wrong way.
Do not steal another girl’s man, for whatever reason. Nor should
you enter a relationship for the wrong reasons (loneliness, on the
rebound, getting back at your ex, man-dependency, etc.) it is bound not
to last. You will only end up wasting more years of your life.
13. Do not force yourself into a relationship.
Do not get into a relationship just because your friends are getting
impatient with your dating escapades and the one hasn’t come yet.
Do not choose who to say yes to based on superficial things like money,
looks, cars, etc.. If you are even thinking of these things, you have
not fallen in love yet.
14. Do not settle.
If you are not happy anymore with your relationship, break up instantly.
He will not stay with you forever no matter how upright he might seem to
be. Eventually, he will also want love and happiness in his life.
15. A relationship has to have love.
Love is the only thing that will push you to give your efforts into
making the relationship work. And believe me, keeping a relationship
requires genuine efforts of both parties.
16. Don’t be afraid to be single.
It’s fun to be single, try it. (I agree. Believe me in this.-Klau) You can go out whenever and wherever
you want. You are free. You can date whomever you want and you get to
go out for free! Do not get a boyfriend just for the sake of having
one. Do not settle.
17. Be a good girl.
Be a good girl to attract a good guy. Enter the relationship with
sincere intentions. Take the guy and the relationship seriously with
the plan of spending the rest of your life with that person (of course,
this is after you had your bit of fun in your younger years). If you
compare your flings from your real relationships, you will know that the
latter makes you happier and more fulfilled.
18. Love without limits.
Whether you loved and gave everything or loved but held out for some
things, if the relationship ends, you still get hurt. But if you gave
your everything, you were happy and you could say that it was worth it.
If you didn’t give your all, you get hurt for nothing.
19. You will get over him.
Love is over-stated. Love eventually ends and you are free to love
(Whoever wrote this, very well said! It’s not impossible to move on. -Klau)
20. Be the one.
Act like you are the one. Don’t be a nagger. Don’t hinder his
gimmicks. Don’t give in to him too easily. Make him treat you as
important. Don’t be easy. Don’t be like every other girl he
had in his life.
