Boundaries of dating
I recently attended a professional networking event and was happy to meet a sharply dressed, attractive woman with a bright smile and impressive credentials.
Within five minutes she told me extremely personal details of her dating disasters, abusive relationship history, financial troubles, fertility challenges and zealous religious views.
We each have a responsibility to set and maintain healthy boundaries in our relationships. They should not be so firm that they prevent intimacy, as in the case where people have emotional walls that were erected after prior relationship trauma.
They should also not so loose that you overwhelm others and make yourself excessively vulnerable (which screams of neediness and desperation.) There should also be a healthy balance of giving and receiving so that the relationship is mutually beneficial.
If many of your dating experiences have been difficult, Boundaries in Dating will revolutionize the way you handle relationships.
