You do not need to be more careful. In fact, being able to fall in love again requires a willingness to be open and vulnerable with someone. This someone you were trying to do that with just happened to be a dick.

There are two teachers that I know of whose work I really appreciate on this subject- Alison Armstrong and Ken Page.

Alison has several interviews you can check out on youtube and she’s written a few books and teaches classes. I’ve heard really good things from people who have taken her courses. Ken Page has a book called Deeper Dating and it includes some excellent exercises to cultivate self awareness about how we are in relationship.

DanaWeddingGuest :  love this. 

 

Before I started dating my Fiance I dated a guy like the one in your post but for 8 MONTHS! he was the same as your guy. Laid it on thick like syrup, super gushy, full of promises and romance. Just as easily as he laid it on he was easy to let me go.

 It’s not you,  it’s HIM. Don’t change yourself because of this flake and don’t close off your trusting heart. Nothing you did or could have done would have made him love you and appreciate you. Some men just arent mature enough or have enough loyalty in them. One day you’ll meet the love of your life and he will take care of your heart and won’t treat you like this guy did.

Make sure you are the most important person in your life, treat yourself with dignity and respect and know that you deserve the best. He just isn’t worthy of your tears and sadness. His loss!
