Men, can't live with them, can't live without them

Listening to: Piped music over at Starfucks again
Feeling: Blur

The Goddess of talk shows speaks up about men. I so totally agree. I know someone who needs this, should I print it out and stick it on her face?


If a man wants you, nothing can keep him away. If he doesn't want you, nothing can make him stay.

Stop making excuses for a man and his behavior. Allow your intuition (or spirit) to save you from heartache.

Stop trying to change yourself for a relationship that's not meant to be. Slower is better. Never live your life for a man before you find what makes you truly happy.

If a relationship ends because the man was not treating you as you deserve then heck no, you can't "be friends".
A friend wouldn't mistreat a friend. Don't settle.

If you feel like he is stringing you along, then he probably is. Don't stay because you think "it will get better."
You'll be mad at yourself a year later for staying when things are not better.
The only person you can control in a relationship is you.

Avoid men who've got a bunch of children by a bunch of different women. He didn't marry them when he got them pregnant, why would he treat you any differently?

Always have your own set of friends separate from his. Maintain boundaries in how a guy treats you. If something bothers you, speak up.

Never let a man know everything.* He will use it against you later. You cannot change a man's behavior.* Change comes from within.

Don't EVER make him feel he is more important than you are... even if he has more education or in a better job. Do not make him into a quasi-god. He is a man, nothing more nothing less. Never let a man define who you are. Never borrow someone else's man. If he cheated with you, he'll cheat on you. A man will only treat you the way you ALLOW him to treat you.

All men are NOT dogs.

You should not be the one doing all the bending...compromise is two way street.

You need time to heal between relationships...there is nothing cute about baggage... deal with your issues before pursuing a new relationship

You should never look for someone to COMPLETE you...a relationship consists of two WHOLE individuals...look for someone
complimentary...not supplementary.

Dating is fun...even if he doesn't turn out to be Mr. Right.

Make him miss you sometimes...when a man always know where you are, and you're always readily available to him - he takes it for granted.

Never move into his mother's house. Never co-sign for a man.

Don't fully commit to a man who doesn't give you everything that you need.* Keep him in your radar but get to know others.

Share this with other women and men (just so they know)... You'll make someone smile, another rethink her choices, and another woman prepare.

They say it takes a minute to find a special person, an hour to appreciate them, a day to love them and an entire lifetime to forget them.


Well, I agree with most of the things said there. I usually can't take it when men (be it my brother or dad) try to control me. Maybe it's my independent streak. I don't know. I get a feeling that most guys will not stand me when we're dating.

Yeah, the reason why I am still single... :p

oie, nolar, nolar, some are apples, some are orange, watermelon and durians, nut all the same lei.

i think it is not to control, but to understand and a bit of compromise that goes along way.

Btw, what Starfucks?

Starfucks is what I like to call my fave coffee place, Starbucks :)

I agree that not all men are the same. Whatever it is, we are all unique little snowflakes. hehe

Every girl's dream is to meet a guy whom she likes and is able to tolerate and understand her. We are all living the simple life ler!!!
