I think its fine to say that if you want a relationship you need to prioritize having a relationship, but you also have to be able to communicate what your needs are if you want a relationship. So, while he might not “be single for more than a week,”(by the way the sheer arrogance of that statement is enough to make me want to vomit) he may never have a successful relationship either.
To be fair, many times, people will say this because it’s expected; a social nicety that’s supposed to ease the sting of a break-up that usually feels more like a sharp kick to your soul’s nuts.
It’s all just enough to push a good, progressive guy like me towards a more traditional woman, even if she’s not as degreed or professionally successful. It’s rare when I print anything that I didn’t write myself, but this is a valuable anecdote that is more powerful than anything I could have made up myself.
This woman has a severe fear of ending up old and alone, and yet it’s not enough to make her change her behavior.The fact of the matter is, even with the most amicable splits, you’re going to need time to mourn, to heal and adjust.Your relationship has just ended and that deserves to be observed.While breaking up certainly doesn’t mean your relationship was a failure, you are facing an ending and those tend to be sad.Trying to force a friendship too early means you’re going to fall right back into old patterns with your ex and that spells trouble.Life is about choices and I feel like an increasing number of women are lying to themselves about that reality.When two things truly conflict you have to pick one, you just can’t have it all at the same time.” Since, I’m also somewhat busy, the answer is often no.She’s exhausted most of the time when we do hang out.The thing is she genuinely loves me and I know she will be hurt when she gets the news that this is just too hard for me.I’m a flexible, secure, giving man but I have my limits.
