Dating someone with esteem problems
So they often parrot off clichés like “you'll meet the right one when you least expect it” and “you'll find him when you aren't looking.” When you're on this emotional roller coaster, these well meaning statements are enough to make you want to cold clock someone in the face.How exactly do you even meet anyone if you aren't looking?
The ups and downs in this cycle can make you feel like you are unbalanced and have whiplash.Does someone accidentally fall on you in the grocery store?In the two-and-a-half hours I leave the house each week, is he going to trip on me at Starbucks while I'm nervously palming my skinny hazelnut latte and completely avoiding eye contact?No wonder I felt horrible and had lots of go-nowhere relationships. Then, just like the lifespan of my favorite bras, the support system failed and the underwire started digging in.When this happened I felt horrible, and went out looking for my next fix.
While it can be fun to go on a bunch of dates with different people, it can also make you feel like you're floating alone on your own little island of solitude.
