Trusting your gut in dating what is first base - The Social Man
There are factors like feelings, culture, and background that must find their way around each other, and with every new partner, that process starts all over again. What worked for your best pal and his girl may not translate over to you and your girl, and what went wrong in your last relationship may be perfectly fine in your new one.
The overthinking, irrational self-doubt and long nights mulling over to reply to a text or not can all be avoided when you tap into acting on your genuine impulses. There is no wrong way to express who you really are to who you like. Your gut knows best, and the moment we master instinct over emotion and the art of trusting your intuition, the problems we had before will vanish. For example, why do we stress over what our romantic interests might think?
These questions and uncertainties that arise in our dating lives can be traced back to our abandonment of self.
Why should you have to suppress how you feel or be judged because of it? Why should you have to hide who you are or be in fear that what you find interesting is offensive?
Wear what you feel like wearing before leaving the house, who cares? Double text her all you want if you think you have something. If your boyfriend is in this category, you may choose to try to work on the issue together. Remember that you cannot change your boyfriend, and working on the issue of lying must come before the relationship can move forward.
There are many people and many relationships that do not require this type of work to simply be honest and real, so be sure to be clear about what you are signing up for. Avoiding manipulation The second type of liar is the one who is completely aware and manipulative about his or her lies. If they want to date two or more people, they lie to do it. If they want to appear to be someone they are not, they lie to do it. If they know you want to date someone who is a Christian, they will pretend to be a Christian just to get you roped into the relationship.
They do not respect the truth. They do not care about the truth. They will lie to get prestige, affection, sex or even money. Run as quickly as you can from this type of liar. In the other direction. Being honest with yourself How can you know the difference? Although lying about thoughts or feelings is not an instant relationship breaker, if you see a pattern and you are constantly talking about what is real and what is not, then you may not be able to restore the relationship.
Start by making truthfulness the absolute foundation of being together. If your partner cannot be consistently honest with you, even about his failings, you likely cannot have the relationship you want with him. If your partner is not clear about his feelings, behavior or other important facts, demand it. If you need to ask questions or somehow investigate what is the truth, do it. Talk about why he lied. How do you avoid getting involved, or getting more deeply involved, in a relationship with someone who is not telling the truth?
The best antidote is for you to be completely honest. Stop lying, even if it is out of fear or embarrassment. Make sure your foundation is solid, in the truth of who you are. Not sure what that means?
