Oprah Winfrey on men
- If a man wants you, nothing can keep him away. If he doesn’t want you, nothing can make him stay
- Stop making excuses for a man and his behaviour. Allow your intuition to save you from heartache
- Stop trying to change yourself for a relationship that’s not meant to be. Slower is better
- Never live your life for a man before you find out what makes you truly happy
- If a relationship ends because the man wasn’t treating you as you deserve then neck no, you can’t be “friends”. A friend wouldn’t mistreat a friend. Don’t settle for less
- If you feel like he is stringing you along, then he probably is
- Don’t stay because you think that it will get better. You’ll be mad at yourself a year later for staying when things are not better
- The only person you can control in a relationship is you
- Avoid men who have got a bunch of children by a bunch of different women. He didn’t marry them when he got them pregnant, why would he treat you any differently?
- Always have your own set of friends separate from his
- Maintain boundaries in how a guy treats you. If something bothers you, speak up
- Never let a man know everything. He will use it against you later
- You cannot change a man’s behaviour. Change comes from within
- Don’t make him feel he is more important than you are. Even if he has more education or a better job
- Don’t make him a quasi-god. He is a man, nothing more, nothing less
- Never borrow someone else’s man
- A man will only treat you the way you allow him to treat you
- All men are not dogs
- You should not be the one doing all the bending. Compromise is a two way street
- You need time to heal between relationships. There is nothing cute about baggage. Deal with your issues before pursuing a new relationship
- You should never look for someone to complete you. A relationship consists of two whole individuals. Look for someone complementary not supplementary
- Make him miss you sometimes. When a man always knows where you are, and you’re always readily available for him, he takes it for granted
- Never move into his mother’s house. Never co-sign for a man
- You should know that you are the best thing that could ever happen to anyone and if a man mistreats you, he’ll miss out on a good thing. If he was attracted to you in the first place, you know that he is not the only one. They are all watching you and you want more, so you have a lot of choices. Make the right one
- Ladies, take care of your own hearts. Share this with other women (just so they know, it’s not everything here I agree with though) (am doing just that). You’ll make someone smile, another rethink her choices and another woman prepare.
Hope I did?
