    10 MAJOR Warning Signs You’re Dating The Wrong Man

     

    Time: it is your most precious resource. It’s something that no amount of money can buy.

    So if you’re dating a man and something doesn’t feel quite right, then maybe it’s time to cut the cord.

    Here are 10 signs you are dating the wrong guy:

     

    1. You can’t seem to introduce him to your friends and family.

    2. He doesn’t listen to you.

    3. He wants your time 24/7.

    4. You can’t seem to show your real self.

    5. You don’t have the same interests.
    6. Spending time with him is exhausting.

    7. You can’t have difficult conversations with him.
    8. He is too self-centered.

    9. You feel like you’re not good enough.

    10. You can’t see a future with him.

     

    I got into this heavy relationship with this guy name Rico.

    Rico and I met when I was 20 years old, and we carried on a relationship for six years. I ended up with Rico because he provided what at the time I thought was real love, and protection. He was a real-life gang banger, thug, and was tied up in all types of things that went on in the streets.

    What unfolded in my life with him was him controlling me pulling knives on me, and as well as guns, because I didn’t want to go places with him. I went from being his loving girlfriend to be his object of control.

     

    He had to know where I was at all times, and at first, I looked at in as though he just loves me, and didn’t want anything to happened to me. This was not the case he wanted to know my ware outs, because he was out there cheating on me, and didn’t want me running into him where he wasn’t supposed to be. The major incident that made me leave the relationship was in 2006

    .He tried to kill me my sister and my sister two young children. I left with the clothes on my back, and never looked back.

     

    The heartache behind having to suffer a long 4 years of abuse and mental anguish from the hands of a lover was the last thing I thought I’d be speaking about at this time in my life.

     

    I believe the reason why I fell into this relationship so quickly, and without healing from the entire Vegas kidnapping was because I did not take time to heal, and I just clung to the first sign of what I thought was going to be the arms of safety in a man.

     

    Focused advice…

    A relationship isn’t a strength or happiness in your life while you’re in a broken place.

     

    You have to be okay with being with you alone while you’re in your time of healing before the Father.

     

    You have to learn how to focus forward from the things that you have been pushing in the back of your mind for so long.
