When some women fall in love, they fall hard. Women are naturally compassionate and loving by nature. With these characteristics, we get criticized sometimes or taken for granted. As much as we know how difficult relationships might be, some of these emotions are overridden by men, which lead to bad break-ups.
Here are some things you should not do solely because you are in love with a man.
1. Don’t beg for love
Some women just don’t know when to stop. You fall in love with a man and it turns out he does not love you the same way. Instead of moving on, you eventually win with all your love tactics and he dates you out of pity. Obviously, you won’t be happy in that relationship. He will take you for granted and even cheat knowing he can get away with it. After all, you will forgive him because you are in love with him. This is a terrible thing to do.
2. Don’t drop out of school
Education is one of the most important ingredients for a good and successful life. On no account should that be toyed with because of a man. Your parents put you in school to study, but instead, you take your school fees and give it to your boyfriend. The truth is, if your boyfriend lets you do that, then he doesn’t love you because if he does, he won’t want your future to be toyed with. You should never do this just to show you are in love with him.
3. Don’t dole out an allowance to your boyfriend
Due to the natural compassion in women, we tend to be submissive and caring to the ones we love. Some people go as far as giving their whole salary or allowances from their parents or guardians to their boyfriends. This is wrong. There are many other things you can do to express your love. If all your boyfriend does is wait around for you to take care of him and he is not doing anything to help himself, then leave. This is because you will probably be paying for every single thing when you are married.
4. Don’t relocate just to be closer to him
First and foremost, if he has not put a ring on it, he has no right to halt your life. I am not talking about couples who are engaged to be married in this situation; this is for those still dating. If he really wants you, let him make you his wife. Sometimes, we are so blinded by love that we do not see how silly some of these things may be. Even if he tells you he will marry you, what happens if you give up your whole life and relocate and it still does not work out? You will end up leaving your heart in shambles.
5. Don’t talk ill of your family
[pro_ad_display_adzone id=”70560″] This is important. Respect is reciprocal. If you talk ill of your family all the time, he will never have regard for them. All you say gets stuck in his head and he will never respect them. I know sometimes you have to vent to someone when things go wrong with your family which could be from time to time. Never let him see your family as dispensable. Earn your respect!
Love is not that difficult and if you are patient, you will find someone who loves you as much as you do in return. (Premium Times)
