Over the past few years I have written about boundaries, your personal limits of what you will and won’t put up with, many times.
Yet, every day I hear from women who even in reading about boundaries and knowing the importance of them are afraid to actually divorce on the horizon, and who are not over their ex. You’re not someone to pass time with while they figure out what they do and don’t want, and the moment that you involve yourself in any of the above situations, the person knows that they don’t really have to do anything.
and I was willing to consider this treatment a fair price for being in a relationship. In fact, many people who are socially inexperienced – geeks and nerds especially – will have encountered all of these and more over the course of their relationships… Many will assume that these are just par for the course when it comes to relationships – platonic, romantic, or familial.

By the same token, if loving them means you can’t love you, always choose you.
