Come on, you all know “that girl”….there’s at least one in every group of friends. She’s the one who gives other women a bad rap.
The kind of girl that ruins good men for other women because after dating them the guy is eternally afraid that every girl they next meet will be “psycho” too? Ugh… I hate “that girl.”
The saddest thing about “that girl” is that she has no idea that she actually is “that girl.” She really is well intended, and all she wants is the same thing everyone else ultimately wants…for someone to love her. The problem comes within her method of trying to get to that love.
So, are YOU “that girl”? Here are some potential signs that you may be…
- Are you a crier? Do you dissolve into tears or have a tantrum every time you don’t get your way with your boyfriend?
- Do you imagine the potential in a guy so much that it blinds you from accurately seeing who they really are? Do you decide that he’s “the one” nearly right away? Sometimes women get blinded by the potential a guy has to be a great (boyfriend, husband, father). And this determination is usually derrived from very little actual data…more like a gut feeling…which may turn out to be faulty once you actually get to know the person.
- Do you try to rush the relationship to commitment? While relationships are certainly two-way streets, the last thing you want to do is push a guy into committing to you. He will eventually wake up and resent you for it later.
- Are you irrationally jealous and insecure? Do you see shadows around every corner? Do you try to test men’s loyalty to see if they will stick around? Do you just know he’s cheating…despite having no evidence of this supposed fact. Do you call, text or stalk to find out what he’s doing or who he’s with? Do you cyberstalk?
- Are you an attention whore? Can you be away from your guy for one day without initiating some form of contact? Do you interrupt him talking to others because you want him to pay attention to you?
If you checked yes to more than one of the above, you might be “that girl.” And you really don’t want to be “that girl” I assure you…”that girl” rarely gets and keeps the guy.
