How To Avoid Situationships 101

• First, be honest with yourself around what you want, what you’re ready for and what you won’t settle for.

• Be clear about your (especially sexual) boundaries, standards, core values and deal breakers. Make a list and then next to each one write down why they’re important to you.

• Honor your own boundaries as a way to model how you want them to be respected.

• Decide how long you’ll date someone before you move on if things aren’t progressing. Vague answers answers around their desire to be in a relationship means it’s time to move on.

• Pay attention to whether you actually like them vs allowing the anxiety around their acceptance of you to fuel your attraction.

• Practice healthy detachment as you engage them in the dating process (gather data).

• Avoid romanticizing, fantasizing, future pacing and efforts to fast forward the relationship (healthy detachment).

• Speak up around where things are going once you’ve hit the milestone around how long you’ll date them with no clear indication of where things are going.

You Lose Pieces Of Yourself

You Lose Pieces Of Yourself

Life changes. You lose love. You lose friends. You lose pieces of yourself that you never imagined would be gone.

And then, without you even realizing it, these pieces come back. New love enters. Better friends come along. And a stronger, wiser you are staring back in the mirror.

Honesty Won’t Ruin Real Connections

Honesty Wont Ruin Real Connections

Healing has taught me that honesty won’t ruin real connections. Expressing your feelings won’t cost you anything valuable. Setting boundaries won’t drive away the right people, and authenticity won’t jeopardize genuine relationships. Remember this the next time you feel down because someone withdrew from you for respecting yourself, sharing your feelings, setting boundaries, or holding them accountable.
