Being Dumped Made Me Re-Examine Who I Was

I let slide a lot of things red flagish behavior that I'm ashamed I did.

I turned a blind eye to him getting more comfortable with his baby's mom. I turned a blind eye to the texts that insinuated that more was going on than simple co-parenting.

I even turned a blind eye to many after hour calls to this woman, well after I was asleep.

And even after I confronted him and he showed no remorse, I still was willing to stay with him.

What Makes A Woman Wife Material?

Lesson #2 "A single woman shouldn't travel too much or do too many big lifetime achievements by herself."

Because what else would a man have left to bring to the table if she can do it alone? If she has a house, a big paying job, or traveled too much when she finally encounters a man, what else could they do together?

She has to let a "man be a man." She has already experienced tons of life's significant milestones. Why would she need a man? How could she respect him if she could do for herself what he could do? So, even though I could afford to do so, I pushed aside purchasing my first home. I didn't travel to far and exciting places because I wanted to wait until I found a man. I didn't want to scare him off with my ambition. (How brainwashed was I?)

So I made sure I didn't do too much because I didn't want a man to be intimidated by my thirst for life. Although I suppressed my desires to do it big, I still was living single.

3 Life Lessons I Learned While Dating

Some of us (including myself) are guilty of going on pity dates or dates that we don't want to go on. Or, the offer of free food has been presented to us, so now we have to go.

Then when you go on these dates, you are unimpressed, uninterested, and uninspired. You knew that you should have stayed home and watched Netflix with chilled wine. But noooooo, you had to go out and do something with your life, and now you are stuck listening to him talk about who is stronger; Super Saiyan 4 Goku or Super Saiyan 4 Gohan.

Captain Marvel Kicks Ass With Out The Help Of Romance

Look at the history of female-led action movies. (Well, the lack thereof). The movies tend to have weak storylines, actresses that do not truly embody the character, and oh yes, the male lover that makes them want to fight harder to win the battle. (Obviously, she can't just fight harder because it's the right thing to do.)

It wasn't until Wonder Woman, that we saw an amazing female-led action movie that made every woman cry out in unison "We are strong and we will fuck you up!"

Gal Gadot's Grecian beauty fit the role and embodied what we would think a live version Wonder Woman would be. And of course like most female movies she had a love interest who she mourns until this day.

He Doesn't Want To Be With You, He's Just A Good Guy

You are this vivacious, beautiful, good azz woman who is great to be around and a blast to be with. Your family says you are a great person. Your friends think you are terrific. The guys you don't want are all in enamored with you. You are this great catch so no man should be able to resist your charm.

Unfortunately, you can be the sweetest peach in Georgia, and there is still someone who may not like peaches. (Thanks Shanna!)

There is something about you that makes him not want to be with you in an exclusive relationship. But just because he doesn't want to be committed to you, doesn't mean that he doesn't see the value in the friendship with you.
