Having sex with him won’t make him stay

At some point in your life you thought sex made everything okay in a relationship, right? You kept on doing it over and over only to realise that actually, it doesn’t work. If a man didn’t love you from the get go, then nothing, not even sex, will make him love you.

If you’re too clingy, he’ll get away

Men see jealousy, insecurity and possessiveness as being too clingy and all this for no reason at all. He’ll disappear and maybe come back once you’ve checked yourself.

Having a baby with him 

Yes he’ll be in the baby’s life but if things didn’t work out between you too, you’ll remain the mother of his child and nothing more. This unfortunately doesn’t guarantee you anything in a relationship.

If you don’t love yourself he won’t either

A confidant woman who knows where she’s going is very attractive and lovable because you she isn’t trying to overcompensate for anything. if you need a man to help you figure yourself out then chancs are you’re going to end up alone and unhappy.

You cannot change him

Often women get into relationships with a ‘perfect’ idea of a man they want to turn their partners into. Unfortunately it never works, he wont swap his jeans for a suit, he wont be the prince charming you’d always wanted. If you cant stand how he is then keep it moving.
