Rule Of Thumb

Oftentimes we are so blinded by lust and love, that when a relationship comes to an end, we wonder how we didn’t see the heartbreak coming. When you are just beginning a relationship, your feelings are so strong for that person that it is easy to overlook the warning signs. A huge indicator if a person is right for you is if your family and friends approve. If your friends and family don’t like your significant other, get rid of them! Their intuition is worth a lot more than you realize. The people closest to you are able to see things from an outside perspective. My three youngest siblings have always been vocal on whether or not they like the person I am dating and have always been right. My mom especially has always been able to see things I could not; like how my very first boyfriend was not respectful and had a wandering eye. Sometimes you have to learn the hard way and find things out by yourself, but it’s helpful to have people who have your best interests at heart.
