Wow, this is so similar to my dating experience! 😱 thank you so much for sharing this, Shannon.
I have found that developing good boundaries and being firm in what I want helps shoo away those guys. It’s must be such a mess in their minds, to say one thing but do another! A lot of my getting sucked into the drama was an annoyingly capacity for empathy. I’m still trying to figure out that part — how to connect with people and have empathy without getting walked over.
But hey, awareness is a great first step! Keep on it 😁
