Breakup Tip #36

The dreaded DTR (determine the relationship- google it it’s a real acronym)

When you reach a certain point in any romantic relationship you have to wonder where this is going. Do we have a future together or is this just a fling? Well ladies sometimes the DTR can be the end of a relationship. Why? Because although we may think things are going really well our partner in this process may be feeling quite the opposite.

You see, as women we like to have clarity, we like to know that this relationship is going to last and we usually like to have some kind of official notification (let’s just call it a Facebook check on our relationship status). However, some guys like to date girls just to see if there is anything more there. When things start to get serious they may get scared and run away. However, at the end of the day if a guy isn’t sure that he wants to be in a relationship with you maybe he’s not so great after all.

I will warn you, however, most guys like to take their time and be sure that they are fully committed to you before making the jump into a relationship. But, when a guy tells you he isn’t sure or he is having second thoughts it may be time to take a step backwards and run the other direction.  Dating should be fun and care-free but let’s face it; we would at least like to know that this (whatever it is) is on track to something. No, I’m not saying we need to hear wedding bells in our future but an opportunity to say “hi blah blah” this is my boyfriend (insert name). After all, we like this person and we are proud to be with them!

So ladies, if a guy is breaking it off with you because you want to DTR then don’t worry because he obviously wasn’t worth it anyway. Move on and find someone who will want to be with you, without you have to ask in the first place…

Good luck girls J

Until next time!

Breakup Tip #7

This one goes out to all the shopaholics out there…

Shop till you drop may be your life motto right now but it can also be detrimental to the breakup process. Yes, you want to go out and buy a cute outfit, that’s fine. However, spending money you didn’t have to begin with to get that extra pair of Prada shoes will not get you anywhere, besides being in a lot of debt and no one wants that. I truly believe in shopping and enjoying time outside of your bedroom, but when the credit card seems to be paying for all the mistakes your ex made, there is a problem.

Monitor your spending habits, enjoy your free time but remember your bank account should not have to pay for his mistakes. I will warn you spending money has always been an easy way to get a quick fix from my breakup woes  but buying all these cute clothes that I don’t have an occasion for is unnecessary and a waste of money.

Yes, you want your ex to see you and think, what was I thinking,but you don’t want to have to go into debt to make him feel that way. All I am saying is be careful how much you spend, allow yourself to window shop and buy things you need, but don’t go overboard.

I would, however, recommend going through your closet during this time and getting rid of all those old clothes you never liked anyway because after all helping make other people look good, is a great feeling, so why not share the love?
