1. You don’t want to be alone.
Sometimes women attract and settle for a string of “Mr. Wrongs” because they jump too quickly into the next relationship . . . and the next . . . and the next. Being okay with “going solo” after a breakup gives you the time to evaluate your past relationship, hone your understanding of yourself, heal from heartache, and appreciate the wholeness and beauty of your life with or without a partner in it. In other words, being okay with being single allows you to choose to be with someone because he meets carefully chosen criteria that fit your unique wants and needs . . . rather than being mindlessly driven to accept someone new because he’s the first guy who asked you out after your last breakup.
2. Even when you realize you’re with “Mr. Wrong,” you’re not sure how to end the relationship.
Some women are intentional about recognizing the wrong man, getting out, and moving on. Others tend to hang in there with a guy far longer than is wise or healthy. It’s possible that you’re staying too long in the wrong relationship because you’re not sure how to end it. For starters, realize you don’t need your partner’s consent or permission—respect yourself enough to understand that your dissatisfaction alone warrants the breakup. Decide what you need to say or do to exit gracefully.
