I saw the trailer for an upcoming film called, Baggage Claim, that made me think about one of the worst dates I have ever had. The guy spent a good 20 minutes ranting about his ex wife. I didn’t know whether to feel bad for him or hand him my therapist’s phone number!
He talked as if he was open to a new relationship but it was clear this guy had baggage. I’m not talking about little carry on size baggage, either. I think that we all have some baggage, though. Heaven knows I harbor a bit of battle scars from the dating battlefield. The difference is I recognize it and try to deal with it. I don’t know if a lot of people realize they have baggage from their last relationships that they need to own up to.
Do you think that you have baggage from your former relationships? Is it possible for some of it to be good and helpful?
Have you ever dated someone who had a little too much baggage for you to handle?
