My goals for 2012: To forgive myself for all the stupid shit I say and do, and to start dating men that actually like me. I think the 2nd is going to be a lot harder. It's super easy to date a guy that doesn't really like me because I know how it ends. Being vulnerable enough to date guys that actually like me? That's really scary.
Reading this book on dating and going through some exercises of why I'm still single has been...enlightening. If only we could get past what we feel we deserve (shitty relationships with narcissistic men who don't really like me has been my MO) and realize we deserve the best. I deserve someone great. But first, I need to be great as well.
So, new mantra: I am a sensitive, kind and generous person. I am loveable and smart, super funny and creative. I am free and open to give and to welcome unconditional love in my life.
Realize your awesome traits and you'll open yourself to find those traits in another. Be the person you want to attract.
Note to self: stop falling for guys who don't like you. Or might be gay. Also, stop letting your friends say you only want to date Jewish guys. It's not true and it's stopping you from meeting a lot of really great guys.
