Yes, you need to look at it that way. People are disposable, until you find one that’s worth keeping. Let the wrong ones go, because they may be the right ones for other people. Just not you. Perhaps you don’t want to let go of your current guy because you think that you might not do better? Or you just don’t want to be alone? (I’ve been guilty of both). But really, how are you going to find the one special person in this huge ass world of singles, if you’re too afraid to let go of the wrong people?
Sometimes, especially after months of dating all kinds of idiots, I tend to let the man stay a while. Maybe it’s just because he seems like prince charming in comparison to the guys before him. Sometimes I even have moments where I honestly believe that maybe I could change him. Although we all know that that’s practically impossible.
After years of dating the wrong kind of men, I’d like to think that I’m at least able to spot some signs that I’m going to have to let go of a guy so that some other unlucky girl may have him. And hopefully someday I’ll realise that I finally got it right.
