Giving up on online dating after just one negative experience. I know a person who is also not currently in a relationship — you would be perfect for each other! Going back to an ex just to get the cuddles. Trying to construct a functional relationship out of someone who is clearly just looking for a little casual sex.
This also le to trying to turn every brief moment of eye contact with a hot person on public transportation into the opening sequence of the movie that is your love life. Full disclosure: I once stayed on the train to follow a guy I thought I was having A Moment with for about five stops too long, only for him to get off and completely walk in the other direction. Those are five stops I will never get back. Imagining, even briefly, that grinding on a rando in a bar is going to lead to a fulfilling relationship of any kind.
This seems like the right juncture to tell you all about the entire year I spent pretending to be into jam bands because I was desperate to be with a guy who was obsessed with them. That is, and always will be, the darkest year of my life. Taking advice from people who are in really dysfunctional, borderline codependent relationships, simply because they are not alone.
Nodding along to their insane rambles with rapt attention because you are looking for any solutions to your current situation, at any cost. Idolizing said relationships — even when you can clearly see that they are unhealthy — because there is something so appealing about pathetically needing someone and having them suffocatingly need you back. Going on more dates than you should with someone you are definitely not that interested in, because, hey, free food and drinks.
Now, before you fly into a defensive rage, allow me to soothe you with the knowledge that I, too, have gone on those ShameDates. I went out with a guy who actually wore a real fedora, as well as a suit vest with his jeans and button-down, more than one time, because he liked taking me to nice restaurants. Was broke, single me happy for the luxurious treatment? But was it worth it in the end? We all need to be better than this. Looking back on that relationship is like looking at an unforgivable outfit you wore that you thought you looked really cute in at the time.
Getting irrationally bitter at your friends who are getting married. Like, come on, let Becky have her day. Her happiness is not taking away from yours, even if that bitch totally stole your flower arrangements. Instead of it being a transitory circumstance, it becomes one of your personal labels, and only le you to feel like you have to overcome it. And this is just guaranteed to make anyone unhappy. Chelsea Fagan founded the blog The Financial Diet. She is on Twitter.
Do not make it contingent on their acceptance of you or their feelings for you. All that matters is that you are happy with the person you are becoming.
All that matters is that you like yourself, that you are proud of what you are putting out into the world. You are in charge of your joy, of your worth. You get to be your own validation. You may unsubscribe at any time.
