Here are the four reasons why: It was an absolutely lovely evening by all accounts. My date was handsome, kind, thoughtful, and the complete opposite of my narcissistic ex. He made me feel safe and comfortable in a way that felt foreign to me. After the date ended we said goodbye and he texted me an hour after I got home to say that he couldn’t wait to see me again. I sat down on the couch, took a deep breath, and burst into heaving sobs. Why did I feel absolutely miserable?
Stop sabotaging your dating life !!!!!
