TT #60

13 things women should think about while dating.

1. There are two types of males: Dishonorable males and honorable men. Don’t date or marry until you know how to tell the difference between the two.

2. Honorable men are protectors. They will guard your heart, protect your emotions, defend your honor and stand as champions for your well-being.

3. The soul of a woman is fragile. A dishonorable male will toy with a woman’s emotions without any concern or compassion.

4. Good men need to be treated like good men, dishonorable males, need to be let go and left alone.

5. Momma’s boys belong with only one type of woman, their moms.Therefore, for your sake, leave them alone and just let them trot home to their mommies.

6. Self-love, if you don’t have it, pull yourself off the market. Make no mistake about it, if you don’t love yourself, NO MAN can ever love you…no matter how great a man he is.

7. Don’t judge ALL men by one man’s actions, unless you want ALL men to judge you based on the acts of someone from their past.

8. The dismal cycle of breaking up and making up only works out in the romance novels, television shows, and movies. If you are riding that emotional roller coaster get off right now. Your heart, mind, and soul will forever thank you.

9. Do you keep attracting men who are dogs? Check the scent you’re putting out. Men who are dogs are attracted by scent.

10. If your potential partner promises to call you but doesn’t, makes dates and breaks them, shows up late or plays games with your emotions then its time to move on.

11. When a man is trying to find himself, kindly kick him to the curb. He can find you, but can’t find himself? He shouldn’t be looking for love…he should be searching for the map to Mastering Manhood.

12. Expecting a dishonorable male to do the honorable thing is like expecting piranhas not to devour you if you make the mistake of diving into their water.

13. Some males like to hit women. It gives them a sense of power and control. If you give yourself to one of these abusive males, most assuredly you will become a punching bag and a floor mat. It is critical that you learn how to detect and avoid this type of man at all costs.

They gotta have money, position, a job, be an adult - and don't want children!

Fascinating! And no doubt very useful too.

Sandee (Comedy +) said...

Exactly. Excellent list. Have a great TT. :)

B Boys Mom said...

Good advise! Happy TT

SandyCarlson said...

All so wise and well put! Stick with the honorable dudes! It's surprising how fast you can stop missing the dishonorable ones!

Elaina said...

Very good advise. I may snatch this with a link to you if that is ok with you. I've dealt some of these issues and it would serve as a good reminder to me and others.

Lazy Daisy said...

Wow, great list. Hope you find your prince charming.

crazy working mom said...

I LOVE #5!!! My sister SO needs to see this list. She married a man who divorced her 6 months later. They now live in two separate homes in different towns and are "happily dating"...because he's a momma's boy.

random moments said...

Amen to #6. I couldn't agree with you more on this entire list.

((hugs))

Happy TT!

tommie said...

great reminders I can pass on to my single friends!

Thanks for visiting my T13.

Joyful Days said...

Well done, well said. I got one of the best ones. I am grateful.

On a limb with Claudia said...

I'd add that a lot of women want "perfect". I'd much rather have "willing to work" over "perfect" any day of the week.

Nicole Austin said...

Good advice. Dating can be a nightmare if you're not careful.

anthonynorth said...

Some good advice there, although I've something to say about #5 on my TT.

Gattina said...

how can you know a man without dating him ? that's a mistery ! and all women have a fragile soul ?? That's probably because some of them married for the 4th time, lol !

Robin said...

Excellent list, and one I hope my daughter (and son!) take to heart when they are grown.

Hailey's Mommy said...

Great Thursday 13. So true about the momma's boys. Send them back to momma. Happy TT!

Bethany said...

Wonderful advice-- will definitely remember it when I go speed dating later this month ;) Happy TT!

Christina said...

Well done!!

the donG said...

maybe im the only guy who have seen this list. hmmm...

Don’t judge ALL men by one man’s actions, unless you want ALL men to judge you based on the acts of someone from their past.>>> good shot!

Journeywoman said...

What an incredible list. I'm sending it to one honorable man and one dishonorable male!

Great list.

Darla said...

This is all great advice--now if only my daughter would take #8 and #10.

Susan Helene Gottfried said...

Good point about life not being like a romance novel. We wish it could be, but let's face it. That's the attraction of a romance -- that it's NOT like real life.

And the "love thyself" advice is SO true. Totally.

Pamela Kramer said...

Good lord the wisdom of this list is overwhelming! I just want to cut and paste it and post it on my own blog!!! Rather, I will just put a link and I want nothing more than to frame it and give it my daughter. The mama's boy is fabulous. LOLOLOL

Tilly Greene said...

I like how you started out with honorable vs dishonorable and how you need to know the difference before you commit too far.

If only it was something that could be taught to young teens who jump into the circle far too soon and without nearly enough information.

Great list, makes one stop and think.

storyteller said...

Love the T-13 graphic this morning ;--)

As usual, your advice is ‘spot on’ … and #6 is certainly ‘key’ to a successful relationship with anyone.
Hugs and blessings,

xakara said...

This is a great list. On #3. I think the soul is strong, but the feelings are fragile. But when you're feelings are truly and deeply hurt it can feel like your soul has broken too.

Happy TT

Chelle Y. said...

You always give such great advice. I am not ready to start dating again, but when I am, I will have to remember some of these.

The Gal Herself said...

#8 was/is a tough one to learn. But you're SOOO right. Real love can be comfortable and tender and quiet. Drama doesn't necessarily equal passion. Thanks for spreading the word! (And thanks for visiting my TT)

savvyprchick said...

Absolutely spot-on. I'm just glad I have finally found one of the good ones. I hope others take your post to heart.

Happy TT!

Alice Audrey said...

Truer words were never spoken. Great list.

Nap Warden said...

Fabulous list!!!

Hazel Nut said...

I sorta forgot the theme this week too, but then twisted it to fit into MY list, clever huh?
Is it any wonder the good guys finish last? So many women, including myself (not anymore!) are attracted to the "bad boys" but of course it always turns out BAD.

Malcolm said...

I appreciate that this list was well-balanced. All of the tips are helpful, but I liked 4, 6, and 7 the best.
