Are you tired of thinking too much, replaying a bad date, reliving a sad moment, crying your eyes out because the pickings are slim? We’re all tired of watching you go through it. Try these ideas, tips and tricks to battle life’s little curve balls. You can cope. Here’s how.
When someone says something inappropriate just nod, walk away, and be glad you’ll turn down their next invitation.
Some dates interrupt. Don’t talk – With them – Ever again.
Remember, you can share the past, but the past cannot share you.
If your date makes you pay for dinner, chances are, you’ll pay for dessert too.
Take a puff from a cigarette before kissing a self-righteous non-smoking perfectionist. One way to make that night go up in smoke.
If someone tries to kiss you and you’d rather not be a willing participant, cough, cough a lot.
Has anyone asked you out after mentioning crazy relatives? Thought so.
When someone suggests they prefer unprotected sex, that means get a condom.
Being with two people is not better than one.
When your date insists they walk in front of you, let them walk in front of you, then turn right.
If you find yourself dating a real problem, time for a “real-solution”.
If your date reeks of alcohol, do not get into the car.
There are certain signs, like red flags during hurricane season, to watch out for. There may be a reason why you are not that into a person. Some call it a hunch. Others call it intuition. Everyone else calls it common sense.
Signs they are obsessed with you:
They blow-up your inbox. They called for little or no reason, repeatedly. They show up, uninvited, more than once. Once you tell them what you like, they give it as a gift. They begin your very own neighborhood watch, from a car window, in front of your house. No wait, that’s stalking.
Signs they are stalking you:
They appear at functions involving you, when you didn’t invite them. They mail, email, or message you, even after you request for them not to. They talk to everyone you know, about you. They send you poems, all, the, time. They give you gifts, daily. If you can’t get them to stop, perhaps a restraining order would. Get a dog. A better security system. The support of neighbors.
Avoid contact all together. Avoid bringing up their name. Avoid walking into a conversation involving them. Avoid photos of them. Out of sight, out of mind. Find better things to do with your time.
A sign of insanity:
What if you really liked the person even though they were out of line, interrupted you, boasted ancestry, smelled like an ashtray, acted like an out-of-control drunk crazy sex kitten who made you pay for dinner? Consult a professional.
