This was on someone's Myspace... it was just too good to pass up. Advice given, and taken:
if someone wants u
If someone wants you, nothing can keep them away.
If they don't want you, nothing can make them stay.
Stop making excuses for someone and their behavior. Allow your intuition (or spirit) to save you from heartache.
Stop trying to change yourselves for a relationship that's not meant to be. Slower is better. Never live your life for someone before you find what makes you truly happy.
If a relationship ends because they were not treating you as you deserve then hell no, you can't be friends."
A friend wouldn't mistreat a friend. Don't settle. If you feel like they are stringing you along, then they probably are.
Don't stay because you think "it will get better." You'll be mad at yourself a year later for staying when things are not better.
The only person you can control in a relationship is you.
Avoid someone who has a bunch of children by a bunch of different people. They didn't marry them when they got pregnant, Why would they treat you any differently? (also, don't try to get them pregnant or get pregnant to try to make them stay or marry you, it's not right and it doesn't work, may even make the situation worse)
Always have your own set of friends separate from theirs.
Maintain boundaries in how they treat you. If something bothers you, speak up.
Never let them know everything.
They will use it against you later. You cannot change human behavior/nature.
Change comes from within.
Don't EVER make them feel they are more important than you are... even if they have more education or a better job. Do not make them into a quasi-god. They are just a person, nothing more nothing less. We all put our pants on one leg at a time.
Never let them define who you are.
Never borrow someone else's mate.
If they cheated with you, they'll cheat on you.
They will only treat you the way you ALLOW them to treat you.
All men/women are NOT sorry.
You should not be the one doing all the bending... compromise is a two way street.
You need time to heal between relationships...there is nothing cute about baggage... deal with your issues before pursuing a new relationship You should never look for someone to COMPLETE you...a relationship consists of two WHOLE individuals...look for someone complimentary...not supplementary.
Dating is fun...even if they don't turn out to be Mr./Ms. Right.
Make them miss you sometimes...when they always know where you are, and your always readily available to them - they will take it for granted.
Never co-sign for them and never move in with their parent's either.
Don't fully commit to someone who doesn't give you everything that you need. Keep them in your radar but get to know others.
Share this with your friends on your list..... You'll make someone smile, another rethink their choices, and another prepare.
They say it takes a minute to find a special person, an hour to appreciate them, a day to love them and an entire lifetime to forget them.
