Like most men, I’ve been dumped. I’ll even admit I’ve been dumped more than once too! It was never easy and I certainly didn’t like it, but I will say that I have matured from the experience and there are a few things I have learned from the women who’ve dumped me. Below are some of the things I have learned.
Things I’ve Learned from Women Who’ve Dumped Me #1
You have got to give a woman her personal space. You do not want to invade a woman’s life so much that you are not giving her personal space. Trust is one of the key components in a good relationship and it is what women want. Yes, women like to cuddle, hold hands and hug and they may seem to always be around, but they need personal space also. If you have ever been cheated on you probably feel you need to know at all times where your girlfriend is and who she is with. But if you get into her personal space too much she is going to get the impression that you don’t trust her much. You may end up breaking up because of this.

It takes two people to make a relationship. Both people in the relationship contribute problems and happiness to the relationship. You can blame the other person all that you want and it is hard not too if you are suffering pain from a breakup. But the breakup was partially caused by you as one-half of the couple. Figure out what went wrong so that the next time you have a relationship it doesn’t happen again.

You’ll get stronger as time goes by. The philosopher Nietzsche was the one who said whatever doesn’t kill me will make me stronger.

It is you who has to make good things happen. While you can’t control every little thing that happens to you, you can usually control how you react to those things. It is you, and not someone else, who has to control your future and be positive about it. You have to pick yourself up and go back out to meet new and exciting women. You can most likely another girlfriend pretty easily if you remain positive.
