I ran into a guy who I was friends with when I first moved to Atlanta. We worked together and would always swap dating horror stories. The last we spoke, he was trying to end things with his girlfriend who treated him horribly. When we caught up over drinks, he started telling me almost the exact same scenario that he was facing 7 years ago.
I had to stop him and ask, “Wait, am I tripping or did you already date this girl?!” I had to break down the pattern that he clearly has had attracting the same type of woman. He wasn’t getting better at dating, or mate selection. I actually think he got worse. This latest dating misadventure seems a lot crazier!
As I left him, I had this horrifying thought that maybe I had the same problem and did not know it. What if after all these years, I haven’t learned a thing! Do you ever worry that you have a pattern when it comes to attraction and relationships?
If you charted your dating evolution, would you be able to see wiser choices that you are making compared to 3, 5, or 7 years ago?
