Wow. This is good advice which I am sure most women will not heed. I don’t think this is about ‘potential’ though — that is just a euphemism for something far more sinister.

I say all healthy people are struggling. All healthy individuals are trying to achieve spiritual growth by facing obstacles and trials. But some people are just mimics; they appear brilliant, charismatic, charmed but lack empathy or any real depth.
A woman can sense this person is not quite right …. he has such potential .. but every now and again the glamour wavers and the ugly truth is revealed.
