I don't fall in love easily. But when I do, I fall hard ~ I'm all in.
So over my many years of dating, I had difficulty letting go of relationships. A guy would leave and I'd hang on.
I'd try to win him back by being attentive and available. That way, he'd realize what he was missing and come to his senses, right?
Wrong. I never won him over by being at his beck and call.
But I did lose his respect.
And FAR more importantly, I lost respect for myself.
