Healthy boundaries for dating
That way, when things don’t work out, they know to return the things I’ve lent, ASAP! Or maybe you are fed up with the lack of attention from a man you’re dating, the guy who won’t call or make the next date?
Have you ever struggled with setting clear boundaries in life or love?Whatever the behavior is that doesn’t work for you, tell him and set that boundary. If you want to be treated with respect, set a clear boundary and let him know from the very start. How many times have you not taken care of your own needs by prioritizing a man’s needs instead?If he’s open to changing his behavior, that’s great. Did you ever cancel plans with a friend at the last minute to accommodate a man’s schedule?For example, say yes to believing that you are a woman of value, worthy of respect. In setting effective boundaries, you will stop saying “yes” when you mean “no.” Also, pay attention to the words you say when you’re not happy with something a man says or does. Those words are signs that you’re not speaking up about what’s bothering you.In other words, you’re not setting or enforcing your boundaries.
