It’s inevitable: getting dumped is one of the guarantees in life, along with death and taxes. There’s the awful, depressing low you feel when you are still in the process of digesting it. Whether it’s dating or work, be careful of what decisions you make during the rebound, because you can end up overcomplicating an already complicated situation.
You’ve got a certain set of requirements that are what you look for in a job or a relationship. You’ve been down that road where along the way to finding that job or relationship, people have tried to get you to compromise on what’s important. Don’t listen to them because they’re white noise at best. Listen instead to your gut when it comes to determining your needs whether it’s for dating or work.
Politically correct thinking dictates that you shouldn’t judge a person by how he/she dresses. This is simply politically correct garbage. Clothes do make the man or woman. What you wear can leave an impression, it’s as simple as that, and that hard and fast rule applies to both dating and work.
At some point in your life, you experience the conflict of trying to determine whether or not what you have is enough, and if you can’t find something better. Outside and inside influences feed your insecurities and self-doubts, and it starts to get complicated figuring out where your real priorities should lie. Is there a better boyfriend/girlfriend/job out there that could be a better fit for you? The thing to remember is no matter if it’s dating or work, you should first honestly answer the question: am I happy with what I have?
Recently I posted about why you should never date or hire out of desperation. To prove my point about the actual cost of a bad hire you made, whether out of desperation or some other reason, read this excellent article that shows you how much and why.
