Alright, it’s time to address the hard truth. Sometimes single people have dating paranoia. Yes, I know nobody wants to cop to this publicly. I would certainly not blame you if you don’t.
The only reason I am outing my own single girl paranoia is because I am pretty sure I just torpedoed my chances with somebody sort of awesome. He exhibited what I thought to be “shady” behavior and of course my spidey (paranoid?) go haywire. The next thing I know I had basically formed some crazy scenario in my head thinking there was a red flag.
Oh there was a flag flying, alright. My freak flag. I made some utterly irrational arguments that were unfair and a little judge-y. Have you ever done that?
Have you ever met someone great and instead of bursting into a song and dance routine ala 500 Days of Summer, you somehow hone in on something about the person that is wrong. Or worse, you come up with a so-called red flag that gives you the license to dump them!
It’s not pretty, people. How do you catch yourself from getting dating paranoia?
When is a red flag an actual red flag in dating? When is it just dating paranoia?
Do you think that you were ever the victim of dating paranoia?
