Fear that she might do something to screw up your relationship with him.

Fear that she might take advantage of him (and you want to protect him from that.) While these are all legitimate fears, remember that they are your fears and therefore your responsibility in terms of handling them.

The first time you would take their opinion into consideration (because after all, the person who said it to you is probably someone that you know cares for you.) But regardless of their opinion, it didn’t change yours. Still, you appreciated their sentiment since you knew it was said out of their love and concern for you. Now you’re getting annoyed – they don’t know that person how you know them!

After you heard their opinion once, that was enough.

Dashcam footage and audio that was recently released indicates that two Sacramento police officers may have tried to hit a homeless man with their police cruiser before fatally shooting him.

Now you’re starting to resent them saying anything to you…

now you’re starting to block their opinion out because it’s none of their business.

I’ve had some of my female readers complain that the term neediness makes it sound like I’m framing women as weak, fragile, insecure creatures that just cling to men (and stress them out). I think women bring a tremendous strength and power to the table in relationships…

when they have access to it and are free of their own fears. Those fears are greater now more than ever really since there’s an entire industry devoted to making sure men and women are wrought with insecurities so they buy products (sowing in and agitating tiny insecurities is the bread and butter of the marketing world).

The fact is that just about any high-quality guy out there is going to have ex-girlfriends. You may not mind some of his ex’s and other ex’s you may absolutely hate.

And there’s no “relationship law” that says you should like them.

In order to have a truly fulfilling relationship (or even start a healthy relationship) with a great guy, you need to come from a place of strength, confidence, and fulfillment.
