Why do I keep dating Mr. All Wrong?

Carrie Bradshaw had a man that treated her wrong for years. After years of heart break and being in persuit of him, he gave in and she finally got what she longed for, Mr. Big. Sex and the city is not reality and although it is possible, who really wants to force a man love you?   If you find yourself dealing with a "Mr.Big" you could be settling for Mr.Wrong.

Do you find yourself depressed, tired and engaged in an emotional turmoil every time you're with this guy? Are you wondering "What's wrong with me?" or  "What did I do to deserve this?"  If so, you may be making some of the same mistakes with different men.  There are some common mistakes many women innocently make in their relationships with Mr. All Wrong.  If you answer yes to any of these questions then you may need to revise the way you handling your affairs.

1.   Are you dating someone who is not emotionally available?

2.  Are you ignoring the signs ?

3.  Are you recycling the same men ?

4. Can he reach you but, you can't reach him ?

5. Is he always making up excuses for why he can't commit ?

6. Does he keep cheating on you ?

7. Are you frowning majority of the time that you're in his presence ?

8. Are you the only one fighting for the relationship ?

9. Do you use sex as a tool to keep him around ?

10. Has he led you on and dropped you like a bad habit multiple times ?

If you have answered yes to any of these questions it doesn't mean you're in a terrible relationship.    There are different kinds of dynamics that make relationships what they are. Know your worth, respect yourself and always follow your intuition.


  1. I think that all of those questions are questions that every woman should ask herself when she's in a relationship. Sometimes you just need to stop and think about if you're getting what you deserve.


  2. Unfortunately, a lot of women need the benefit of hindsight to be able to honestly answer these questions...of course by then its too late.

  3. When woman is in love, she doesnt want to see or hear any signs. Love is blind:-)

  4. I so look forward to your post! This is great. I also lost your number, so text it to me again :)



  5. I can definitely understand where you are coming from. I've given up dating altogether, I just have zero luck in this area so I've cut my losses short and my blog keeps me bz 100% of the time :)

  6. These points you written down are so true. But yeah, sometimes when we are at the peak of our "in-love" phase, we just turn a blind eye on the warning signs, until we've incurred too much hurt that only then do we look at it in this perspective. But I agree with what you've written here. Great post.

  7. Strong post.. luckily I have the sweetest boyfriend on earth, but I totally know the wrong type of guy!

  8. What a necessary 'rubric' to follow! A lot of us girls ask ourselves this very question - but we need to realize that we are going through our "trial and error" process. The great thing about it - is that we can see the signs earlier on - and this list, definitely helps us do that!

  9. This is a great list for young women without experience to follow.
