Trusting Men After A Break-Up?
Ladies, as I'm going through my break-up and feeling pretty hopeless about ever finding someone in the future, I need your advice on how to give someone a chance.
Tuesday night I decided to move on from a guy that I really, really loved. I mean we talked a wedding, we talked a kid and it wasn't just me doing it so please don't classify me as some clingy woman pushing a future on him.
Devastatingly, I found out that some personal issues that he's dealing with don't allow him to form close connections to people: friends, family, significant others, etc. There were times where he was telling me he loved me, but was feeling absolutely nothing at all inside. I was crushed and let my head win out for once. I owed it to myself to get out of a relationship where I'd constantly be wondering "Does he love me today or not? Will he in an hour? A day? A week? A year?" I couldn't live with that.
Right now, I can't say that I'd honestly consider dating anyone anytime in the near future. I don't feel like making an effort to meet anyone. I know eventually when I do meet someone and everything's going great I'm going to have the words "If it seems too good to be true, it probably is" in the back of my mind. I fear that I'll be sitting there waiting for him to reveal some major flaw. How do you overcome that feeling so you don't completely sabotage what could be a good thing?
