In fact, I'd been going about being single all wrong. When I started seeing my husband, aka the first guy I wasn't embarrassed to tell my therapist about, I was gobsmacked to realize how much I hadn't known about dating before then.Finding a romantic partner is only one of many goals you can have at once.There's a difference between making something a priority and having an obsession.You didn't like it when your godson hurled on you, and he was a toddler. It's not about getting someone to think you're good enough for them. And sometimes they have small behaviors that indicate a complete lack of respect. When you're part of a couple, you miss being free to follow your every whim. No one ever fell in love while analyzing every detail of their momentous first meeting. If a man says that he's too damaged for you (or too neurotic, or too anything), just take his word for it.
No one wants to be the Captain Ahab of the dating world.2.
When you like a guy, and your mutual friends have multiple anecdotes about him projectile vomiting after excessive drinking, you need to rethink the infatuation.
