Most gentlemen grow up with the ideal that a woman should be caring, loving, and sensitive, and that he was born to be her hero and protector. This can sometimes cloud his judgement towards the women who do not deserve this level of servitude.
If you’re a guy who repeatedly finds himself dating women who never have your best interest at heart, these three tips from relationship expert, Dr. Carol Lieberman, may help you avoid these types of treacherous relationships altogether.
1. There Is Such a Things as Bad Girls, and They Will Break Your Heart
Bad girls are women who feel unloved by their dads and previous boyfriends who have hurt them. They harden their hearts, deciding that if they can’t get true love, they will get something else. When you suspect a woman is only after what you can give her, listen to your instincts. Don’t let your ego convince you otherwise.”
2. A Bad Economy Can Make a Man Vulnerable to Bad Girls
When a man loses his job—he feels emasculated. If a bad girl comes along, recognizing his vulnerability, all she has to do is make him feel like a stud, and he will fall head over heels, losing savings, self-respect, and sanity. Stay out of the dating pool—when you are a sitting duck for these women.”
3. A Man’s Relationship with His Father Sows the Seeds of Vulnerability
When a father is physically/emotionally absent, he causes his son to have low self-esteem. The son feels that if he doesn’t grow up to be a white knight—he won’t be able to keep a woman. Then when a bad girl presents an opportunity to save her, he falls for it. If your father never taught you to be a man, seek a mentor whose character and choices you respect. It’s never too late.”
