People have a general idea of love being some amazing thing that just happens out of the blue, and that we all have a predesignated special someone who’s going to love us. That may or may not be true, and it’s something that is open for discussion, however one thing will forever stand as a fact and that’s that relationships need work – a lot of it. And when you find out how I’ve come to this conclusion, you will consider my input on the matter extremely valuable.
You see, I was not particularly chummy with the whole relationship thing. Around the time I’d turned 18, I figured that I was not going to let myself fall into the pits of love and despair. I got my heart broken by my first boyfriend, so I decided then and there to keep things casual throughout my whole life. I wasn’t too impressed with the whole array of feelings I was feeling and, boy oh boy, I was dead serious about not letting that sort of thing happen to me ever again. At that point, I didn’t care what it would take, but I knew that I had to keep that promise I made to myself.
Alas, things usually don’t go as planned, and neither did my huge decision about not letting my emotions get the better of me. By the time I was 20 I was madly in love again, and of course, I managed to get my heart broken yet again. Absolutely confused by everything that was happening to me, I ventured out into the unknown territory of self-doubt and low self-esteem. After my first relationship ended, I was sure that I was not the problem. After the second breakup (which played out in pretty much the same manner as the first one), I couldn’t make a statement as bold as that anymore. I had never had confidence issues, or any type of psychological inner turmoil, but that was rapidly changing as I realized that all of my romantic endeavors were developing a pattern. And that was not the only pattern – I soon realized that I was attracting the same type of guy – a fellow fond of dominating, always aiming to be the bigger star, and bailing the situation after emotionally draining their partner. I knew I had to make a change and that I had to start somewhere, but I was unsure how and where. How could I avoid attracting the wrong type of guys?
Thankfully, I didn’t have to ponder on my problem for too long. As I was talking about my situation with one of my friends, she mentioned a blog site that helped her out with her love problem tremendously. I figured I didn’t have anything to lose so I gave that site a chance and, boy, am I glad now that I did.
Free Romance Guide didn’t just provide me with a steady flow of great dating advice from people who have a healthy view of what makes a good relationship, but it also gave me dating tips I desperately needed, like the one that explained how to recognize someone who’s bad for me. As you can imagine, that tip really turned my life around. When I was ready to date again, I figured out how to take something out of each date and learn a valuable lesson about myself and about what makes a healthy love relationship.
And after two years of casual dating, several new friends made, and a rebuilt confidence, Free Romance Guide gave me a bonus – something I never could have imagined being in my life at all. A very special, lovely, and good-hearted man whom I gave a chance because of this blog site. Now, three years later, I’m engaged and have a baby on the way. I’m certain that I can teach my future daughter about self-respect and what makes a healthy relationship.
