Before You Go Running Back To Him Read This

Before You Go Running Back To Him Read This

Before you go running back to him…

Remember if he cared he wouldn’t have let you go in the first place.

If he cared he would have valued you more and appreciated you.

If he was worth it you wouldn’t be sitting here conflicted and overcome with guilt.
If he cared you wouldn’t be wondering if he does or not.

Before you go running back to him…

Realize it isn’t your job to chase people 
Or run in tireless circles.

You deserve so much more than someone who makes you feel like love is hard.
Because love isn’t hard. Loving the wrong person is.

Before you go running back to him…

Remember why you left in the first place.

You were tired of it.
Tired of getting hurt and let down and disappointed.
There was a brief moment you realized you deserve more than this.
And you walked away.
And I know how hard that was for you.
I know you might have looked back a few times.
Hoping he’d tell you don’t go but he didn’t.
And now you’re sitting here missing him.
But you aren’t missing him really…
You’re missing the idea of who you want him to be.

Wondering if you should answer his text.
Wondering if you should text him first.
Wondering if this time it will be different.

It’s not going to be.
Maybe it’ll be different at least in the beginning.
Maybe that time and space apart you think made him realize.
Made him learn.
Made him see your value.

But all you are to guys like him are some habit.
Someone they can test.
Someone who challenges them every time you leave.
But he’s the one who has the upper hand when you come back.

Knowing he could have you if he wants you.
But he never wants you enough to commit or be what you need.

Before you go back to him take a moment and think about how much time and energy you invested into this relationship. Then think about how much he hasn’t.

The right relationship isn’t going to be this hard.
And I know you think you want to be with him.
But you deserve so much better.
And when you finally let him go for good, that’s when you’ll get it.

Do Smart Men Really Marry Down?

About 14 years ago, the psyches of successful single women were singed with worry when journalist John Schwartz wrote a New York Times article titled “Glass Ceiling at Altar as Well as Bedroom.” He claimed that “men would rather marry their secretaries than their bosses.”

The following year, Maureen Dowd followed with another Times column (and a book, Are Men Necessary?), agreeing with Schwartz. The authors’ clear thesis: Men prefer to marry down. Since then the media have continued with this narrative lending credence to the succ
