I’ve asked — how soon was too soon to tell your business.
I was just thinking, what do we do with that information, once it is received? Do you hold it against the person? Do move cautiously depending on what you are told? Do you use the information to your own advantage? Do you just stop and move on right there?
What if the person tells you, they have always been done wrong in relationships. They have stories of how the other person(s) did this or that to them. What if they say, they always choose the wrong “kind” of person? Is it okay, if they are the “nice guy?” Is there anything even wrong with being the “nice guy?” You know the one that always puts their all into a relationships. Doing things that are above and beyond to show how much they love/care about someone. They are always left broken-hearted. What if the person just seems broken? You can’t always tells so soon if they are broken or broken-hearted.
Are these good qualities? Does it show they are loyal and committed to their relationships? If they were a dumbass in their past relationships, is that a good or bad thing for the new potential person? Do you move forward in dating them? After all, they are the good person, right?
How about the flip to that scenario….
What if they are telling you how much they were no good. They cheated, lied and took advantage of situations. What if they were the one leaving broken hearts? Can you still see potential in them? Would their other good qualities make a difference? Would you look last those past behaviors, if they said they have changed. That is the reason they are telling you all of this after all, right?
Those were some of the questions I had today. I would love to hear from you folks.
