My 2015 dating fails

14 December 2015, 15:08 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - The year is coming to a close and as a single party navigating this relationship desert for a change in status I will be the first to admit I have been taking major Lessons all year long. I have met with a couple of clowns the whole year and it gave me better perspective on myself and my poor decision making skills. Giving attention to the wrong people like the one who told me he is in jail and needs my money to bail himself out. It is at this point that I realized that I had poor decision making and insight in people. Once you go on the first date with someone, not be in a relationship with them and they are already asking for money from you; you have failed in life.

Maybe you need to re-evaluate what you need to look for and what you want

If you are constantly getting the opposite of what you wanted and failing maybe it is because your idea of what is good for you is not even realistic. You have a list, or don’t but have an idea on what it is you want. On the outside it looks like this person is exactly that until you really invest in them and realize they are just not it for you. You do not change the list but think that this person is the problem. It might just be you and your list are the problem.

You are rushing things because you want it to go your way

You need to take a break if you get a couple of hits and miss. After it, you r the climax, there is always the downtime; maybe you need to take that. When you rush things you end up not noticing the little things. By the time you realize it, here you are trapped or you trapped them and you do not like or want them neither do you want to live with them anymore.

Don’t get in one and mess it up

People tend to forget when they were alone and wanting to be with someone. They get that someone and soon enough they get on a high horse with their partner. Don’t pretend who you are or aren’t the change it up. Just be you, and maintain it. Do the things that you will keep doing while dating and in a relationship. If you do not want to do something, don’t do it.
