When in a relationship, women often lead with their heart, not with their head. They may know someone isn’t right for them, but if they like him, they will let their heart override their head. On the other hand, men usually think with their big or little head, but not with their heart.
A woman’s intuition will often alert her to red flags in a relationship. She may ignore her intuition and in the end, she’ll realize her uneasy feelings about a man were warranted. Women who are smart in all aspects of their lives; their career, their finances, etc., will still tend to make foolish choices when it comes to affairs of the heart. Women will put on blinders or may think they can change a man to be who they want him to be. This rarely works. With men, what you see, is usually what you get.
Having confidence and self-esteem go hand-in-hand with loving yourself. Self-love is necessary in order for a person to feel they deserve to be loved, and to put themselves first, before others. When a woman loves a man more than she loves herself, she will sacrifice her wants and needs for his to please her man.
Confidence and self-love are attractive qualities in a mate. I think it may be hard for someone to truly love a person who doesn’t love themself. It’s ironic though, that not loving yourself doesn’t prevent a person from being able to love someone else. The problem is when you love someone more than you love yourself, they’ll probably love you less and may take your love for granted.
In a new relationship some men will lie about their intentions, as to whether they really want to be in a monogamous relationship. They’ll tell you what they think you want to hear. A man will take the chance at lying in order to continue seeing a woman he’s interested in at the time, knowing at some point she may find out his real intention. He will hope that by the time she finds out the truth, she will be hooked on him and will not want to walk away from the relationship.
Men will also lie about their relationship status. He may have a girlfriend, a booty call or a friend with benefits that he’s holding on to. Men tend to lie about the reasons their past relationship ended as well. Often they’ll say their girlfriend cheated on them, when they were the one who cheated. They will feel you will have sympathy for them and think they are a nice guy.
