Ways to Improve Your Relationship Management Skills

Relationship management becomes more important as you assume more professional responsibility. You need skills to build bonds, inspire, influence and develop others. All the while you need to be open to change, manage conflict and establish teamwork.

Emotional Intelligence author Daniel Goleman believes it is possible to build better relationships one step at a time. This is accomplished by focusing on six competencies in the Relationship Management domain of Emotional Intelligence:

1. Inspire

2. Influence

3. Develop

4. Initiate change

5. Manage conflict

6. Establish teams and collaboration

Let’s look for some ideas about how to be successful in each of these domains.

1. Inspiration often begins with a time of quiet reflection about nagging questions. In the process of examining feelings which include anxiety, confusion and passion, often a vision becomes clear which helps to understand the larger purpose or mission. For inspiration to truly happen, the vision has to be spelled out to others in a compelling style. In this way, others hopefully will “buy into” the ideas and plan. Individuals who inspire others:

– Draw on the collective wisdom of others

– Involve others to look at the reality and the ideal vision

– Are able to connect with people’s emotional centers as well as intellectually.

2. Influence is one of the three ingredients of a democratic leader. Teamwork and conflict management are the other two ingredients and will be discussed later. Influence also requires effectively handling others’ emotions. You may have been in situations where you influenced someone’s mood, or he/she influenced your mood. Individuals with a high level of influence:

– Skillfully win people over by listening, networking wit them, etc.

– Fine-tune what they are going to say to appeal to the listener

– Willingly use a variety of strategies to build consensus and support.

3. Developing others is a skill needed by managers who supervise others and are responsible for the growth of employees in their department or division. Individuals with a high level in developing others:

– Acknowledge and reward people’s strengths and accomplishments

– Offer helpful feedback and accurately target needs for further growth

– Mentor, coach, and offer tasks that challenge and foster a person’s skills.

4. Initiating change or being a change catalyst consistently models the behaviors you want to see in others. You begin by questioning the emotional reality and cultural norms underlying daily activities and behaviors. How others feel about the change process needs to be considered. Individuals who are easily able to initiate change:

– Recognize the need for change

– Challenge the status quo

– Make compelling arguments for change

– Find practical ways to overcome barriers to change.

5. Managing conflict requires being able to understand different perspectives and finding a common solution that everyone can endorse. It requires good listening skills and self-control. Individuals how have good conflict management skills:

– Handle difficult people and tense situations tactfully

– Spot potential conflict and help de-escalate the situation

– Encourage open discussion

– Work for win-win solutions.

6. Teamwork and collaboration model respect, helpfulness and cooperation. Both work and home are happier when these conditions are met. When teams work well, turnover and absenteeism decline and productivity increases. Individuals who have strong teamwork and collaboration skills:

– Draw all members into active participation

– Build a team identity and commitment

– Protect the group and share credit.

It is now known that emotions are contagious. In addition, every encounter with another person can be anywhere on a continuum from emotionally toxic to nourishing.

In summary, to improve your relationship management skills, you want people to be able to turn towards you rather than away or against you. To have good relationship management skills you need to use the following 5 tips:

1. Develop open, honest, trusting relationships.

2. Have self-respect and show respect to others, especially if you are responsible for their development.

3. Have good communication skills including listening, assertiveness and conflict management

4. Understand what a change process entails, and be willing to lead people through it.

5. Be a good team member and encourage collaboration.

Being an effective manager not only makes you look good, it improves the skills of those you supervise and makes them look good. That is a “win-win” for everybody.

Ways to Enjoy Being Single After 40

Isn’t it true? Don’t we think too much about everything and stay upset for long? Most of us have an impression that getting married at a particular age is necessary because the future life will be dependent on the marriage. Many people feel that being in a relationship is better than remaining single but, it is not true. Being single can also be a different experience. Being single or getting married is partly a matter of fate and partly one’s choice. The common reasons for you being single over 40 can be; you never married, got divorced or you are widowed. Any of these reasons should not affect your future life as they are the past moments, which need to remain in the past. I understand that it makes you feel lonely at times, but you can overcome it by giving some time and then starting the same routine with a new perspective.

Tips to Enjoy Being Single After 40

Whether male or female, loneliness affects both of them equally. These are the common tips that can be adopted by both men and women to lead their single life happily after 40.

Enjoy the Freedom
Single life gives you the extreme freedom of doing whatever you like. There are no restrictions on you to follow rules and regulations while doing something new. On the other hand, when you are in a relationship, you are bound to think at least once before you do anything. There is a necessity to think about its benefits, hazards that can be caused on the part of your partner or simply, will your better half be with you or against you in your decision.

Do Things You Wanted to Do at Young Age
We are not always lucky enough to be able to do whatever we like. There are situations when we are forced to compromise between our likes and duties. If this has happened to you, this is the right time to fulfill your dreams and live life to the fullest. If you like to sing, for example, and wanted to learn, you can definitely start it up now. In fact, you can concentrate more on it without handling any other pressures.

Increase Social Contacts
The best way to do away with loneliness after 40 is becoming more and more social, meeting new people and participating in social events. You will find number of people having the same point of view as yours. You can take initiative and explore your talent in various fields. A person for example, can be good in conversational skills, or someone might be good at organizing events. Moving into a social circle will let you acknowledge your hidden talents and work on them.

Visit New Places
This is one of the best and the most common ways to enjoy being single. You can spend maximum time in enjoyment and peace at various holiday destinations. You can visit Caribbean Carnival, Cape Town Kitesurfing Holiday and Croatia Kite Cruise. These are just a few suggestions but, you can always choose your favorite locations to visit.

Believe in Friendship
When you feel lonely, you want someone to be with you, listen to you, to your thoughts and agree to them. Making friends is the best way to forget loneliness and enjoy life. You will learn to talk to strangers even if you are an introvert, but remember that you should make meaningful friendships and cherish the existing ones. Try to learn communication skills like listening to others, being polite in your address to them and expressing positive thoughts through your statements. Dating after 40 can also be a good option. Through dating, you can add some beautiful moments to your sweet memory collection.

Appreciate What You Have
We should always thank God for whatever he has given us, because we are not aware of the conditions which people around us go through. We always create fuss about our own problems but, never realize that the problems that others face are many times severe than ours. I am not at all saying that you don’t have any major problems but, when you look around, trust me, you will find people having problems greater than yours. So the point is, try to make good out of bad by changing your way of looking at things.

Try to Get Engaged
If you are willing to fall into a relationship, you can definitely look for a suitable partner. But, if you are not interested in marriage, do not force yourself because of social pressure. Remember, marriage is out of choice and not a need and I have already suggested ways to stay happy even though you are single.

To sum it up, your life is yours and it’s your right to lead it your way. Do not waste the precious time of your life contemplating on what you don’t have; rather get happiness from whatever you have.

Tips on Finding Out if Someone is Married

With the onset on online dating, meeting new and interesting people has become easier as well as a bit eerie. The reason being obvious, there is no way to guarantee if the person you’re talking to, is telling you the complete truth about themselves. This fact is not restricted to the internet alone, it has its tentacles drawn into all interpersonal relationships in today’s society. So how can you be sure that you are not being deceived, and that your love interest is not already involved with someone else?

When it comes to just dating, we all have the option of ending things, when things don’t work out. But to find yourself being an accomplice to an outright cheating, is a definite NO! Not only are these people lying to themselves through their infidelity, they are also lying to their spouses, as well as innocent and unaware people who are dating them. It’s a triangle most people dread getting involved with, but to get dragged into this loop is purely an unwanted scenario. Here are some basic tips that will help you escape from such a situation.

Is there a Way to Find Out if Someone is Married?

Ask the Dreaded Question
The most logical as well as the least painstaking option, would be to directly approach your partner and ask them if they are currently married or not. If the answers they give, still leave you in doubt, then you probably should consider taking a break, the reason being that the basic requisite is missing, which is TRUST!

Check His/Her On-line Profiles
Search online, if there ever was a public invitation or declaration of marriage involving the person you’re dating, because you might find it online. Check all popular social networking sites for your partner’s profile. You may come across old uploads about their status and other exiting events of their lives, which may give you your answers.

Check His/Her Apartment
Do your own research. The next time they take you over to their home, look out for traces of other people having recently lived there with them. Though, this may be misleading. Try checking for old photographs or voice mail, when he/she is in the shower or gone to get some provisions or is on a call in a different room. Does your partner always insist on meeting you at your place? If so, find out why you can’t go over to their place as well?

Are You Being Hidden?
Have the two of you been for movies to popular theaters, or cozy dates in crowded restaurants, cafes, and other eateries? Have you been introduced to his/her common friends? If not, you just might find yourself being hidden by your lover, so that people he/she know may not get suspicious.

Question the Patterns
Find out peculiar patterns in your relationship with this person. Are you free to call them whenever you miss them, or is there a fixed time for romance? Many cheaters, utilize their work hours and their business trips for being unfaithful, while the nights at home are dedicated for their spouse and the family.

Meet the Family
Has your lover ever bothered to introduce you to his/her family? Or is the topic sidelined, every time you bring it up? If you’ve been seeing this person for a while or close to a year, you should have met the parents by now! In case you have been introduced to them, this is the ideal time for you to approach family members and friends. It would be safer to approach family first, as the friends may be aware of what is going on and may try to mislead you.

Check Government Records On-line
Another logical approach would be to check government marriage registration records. You may either choose to check these public records by visiting the office personally or you may check the records online through various free marriage registration websites that show the status of the individual as married or divorced.

Seek Help from Private Detective/ Cops
If the situation you are in is a bit extreme, then you may try to hire a private investigator, though this is by far the most expensive option. If you suspect that they may be dangerous, then you may simply inform the police so that they can come up with their own background information, which will clear all your doubts once and for all.

All these assumptions can make you feel even more frustrated. Just listen to your inner voice, if you feel something is wrong, let go of the relationship. You will surely come across a better and a well suited person for yourself in the future.

It’s time you stopped asking yourself if the person you’re dating is being honest or not, and started to find out the truth. The only concise way to find out if someone is married is to check public records or websites that display these public marriage registration records. These records won’t lie to you no matter what the case may be.

Ways to Be Really Good Friends

‘Friendship’ is one term that has become synonymous with acquaintanceship these days, don’t you think? We tend to call everybody we know, a ‘friend’, irrespective of the fact that they actually qualify as a ‘true friend’ in our lives or not. While most of you may beg to differ, we believe that the most crucial fact that decides who will be a friend in our lives, and who will not, is that likeness, a sort of attraction that makes that person somewhat worthy of taking the effort to build a genuine friendship with, the effort that compels us to know more deeply about him/her, not for any lustful reasons, but for reasons that spell genuineness all the way through!
There is no mathematical calculation as to who we may start liking. At times it takes ages for us to develop a liking towards someone, while, on the other hand, there are times when all it takes is a look, and you instantly recognize that this person is invariably someone who would add an all new meaning to your life. The following section gives you tips on how to go about being friends with someone you like, but don’t really know that well.

Ways to be Close Friends with the Guy/Girl You Genuinely Like
We repeat, it ain’t necessary to know someone in-and-out to like them. Most people will interpret it as infatuation, but we beg to differ; that can’t be the case all the time. At times, it also happens that you end up feeling an attraction (non-sexual) towards people of the same gender, and yes, this can very well happen to straight people! Some people call it a karmic connection that instigates that pull towards an unknown person. You see them and you feel like removing this ‘stranger tag’ right away. However, things become quite complicated considering the plight of the world in which we live today. You can’t just ask anyone to be friends instantaneously because that will either make you a possible playboy or a psycho stalker. The following tips will help you take things slowly and naturally.

Initiate Some Small Talks
Why we want you to initiate a conversation is because you never know if the other person is too shy to do the same. Perhaps you see those smiles coming on from the other end, perhaps the eye contact leaves quite a positive impression. However, friendship needs talking. Period.

How would you go about it? Well, make sure you utter something that totally goes with the situation. For instance, if you see him/her with a pet most of the time, perhaps in the same park where you go for your jog, then why not walk up to the pet and cuddle it? Ask for the pet’s name first and then move on to introducing yourself―a gesture that will soon be reciprocated.

The point is, that no matter in which situation you are, make the best of it, to come up with how you’re gonna start talking to this person. Another example for the same would be this. Say you see this person coming in this local coffee shop with a friend, and this has been happening for quite some time. Most likely, he/she will have a fixed table. Try sitting on that table one day, before this person arrives. And as soon as you see the disappointment in his/her face of not seeing the table vacant, acknowledge his/her presence and get up from the table, telling this person that you sat there because no other tables were vacant at the time. Your politeness and thoughtfulness will be reciprocated for sure. Introduce yourself, say some nice things about the place, their food, the music? Take things forward from that point on.

Build on the Commonalities
Building on common grounds always helps define the intensity of a budding relationship. To move on from basic small talks, to actually have some interesting meaningful conversations, you need to ask some questions. “What do you do? What are your hobbies? You seem as if you’re really into pets/coffee/music?” Don’t be a cop interrogating a suspect. Smile, loosen up, relax yourself. Talk about your likes and interest, but do more of listening and remembering than talking about yourself.

Also, don’t be disheartened if you two share nothing in common. Many times, it becomes all the more interesting when there are many differences! Yes, we mean it. Imagine if he/she is into adventure sports, something you’ve always wanted to try but never did. Or, if you being a writer helps him/her connect with literature and intellect, something he/she doesn’t get to discuss with anyone else! If tackled with open-mindedness, differences may also bring people together. Exchange numbers and plan on meeting again, perhaps on the next weekend?

Introduce Him/Her to Your Common Friends
Like we said, if you two have met each other in a public place, there are chances that both of you would be accompanied by friends. If that is the case, introduce him/her to your friends. Otherwise, as you start building this newly-found friendship on some great conversations and meetings, plan out a day where you invite him/her on a hangout with your close friends. You can also invite his/her close friends to make him/her feel more comfortable. However, do this at a point when you feel that this person has become comfortable with you. Make sure you include these words, “Only if you’re okay with it.”

Make Some Adventurous Plans Together
We’re sure that by this point of time, you two would have figured out if you guys actually click with each other, or it’s just become one of those stretchy relationships. What we’re trying to say is that, if your liking is still intact, and somewhat reciprocated, then make sure you add to these moments to make the friendship all the more stronger.

What can you do? Well, if both of you happen to be big foodies, then invite him/her to this awesome place having a great food challenge. Or, if nature’s photography is what he/she likes, take him/her to the suburbs or the countryside, or at any particular spot where this passion of theirs can be lived to the fullest. After all, friendship is all about caring for the other person, right?

Be Available for Him/Her as Much as Possible
The one thing that defines true friendship is the unconditional presence of it. You needn’t talk or meet everyday, but the occasional “What’s up” is enough to feel that you have a friend who’s there. Invariably, it is these small sweet nothings that make you realize who will be there at the time of need and who wouldn’t. Build on this aspect, and be as emotionally and/or physically available as possible for this person. Don’t make it look like your life revolves around him/her, but never let a call or a message go unanswered, or acknowledged.

The only exception to this rule is if you sense that you’re being taken for granted. Remember, it is not true friendship when you’re treated as nothing more than a backup. If you feel that your availability is really needed and valued by this person, only then should this rule be applied.

Be a Source of Positivity in His/Her Life
With so much of negativity around, where friends backstab, partners cheat, acquaintances try to bring you down, and family members seem too busy to be around, you be a source of positivity to this person. Help him/her see things from your positive point of view. If he/she tends to focus on the thorns of the rose, tell him/her how they are important to protect the beauty of the rose. Rose being symbolic of life in this example.

Likewise, if he/she has certain fears, insecurities, or preconceived notions about life, make sure that you help him/her focus on the reasons why he/she is so likable, why life is so beautiful, and why you became friends with this person in the first place. Positivity has an attraction stronger than any other attraction in the world, and the best part is, it stays forever.

Make Sure You’re Not Forcing Your Friendship on Him/Her
Having discussed all the aforementioned points, always remember that in all these steps, you mustn’t come off as someone who is trying to force his/her friendship on the other person, while the other person isn’t so much interested. Always pay attention to the body language of this prospect. If it is evident from his/her behavior that this person is equally into being friends with you, great. If that fails to be the case, then ensure that you take a back seat, and let the other person set course of what lies ahead.

For most people, the thought process behind being friends with the one they like is to finally form a romantic relationship with them. It’s quite a bummer when you find out that this guy/girl already has a girlfriend/boyfriend. However, we think that friendship is far beyond the whole point of them being single or committed. After all, there are many in a relationship who still need the company of a true, genuine friend with whom they can share their inner thoughts, especially the ups and downs of their relationships. And you never know if your genuineness with this person, makes him/her realize that perhaps he/she is with the wrong person at the end of it all! No, we’re not trying to lift your spirits high. All we’re trying to say is that real friendship has its way of rewarding you in surprising ways. The main thing is to keep it real. All the best.

The Don’ts of Casual Dating

When you decide to have a casual relationship, then you ought to work by the rules of such kind of dating. No strings attached relationships are basically all about sex and getting it down, but unfortunately there is a very thin line between keeping it casual and developing feelings for the person you are with especially if they are of good character. Before you enter into casual dating, you should clearly understand what you do and things that you should never do to keep it as casual as it should be.

Don’t date someone you closely know

It may not be advisable to hook up with strangers randomly when it comes to dating but then again, you do not want to have such a steamy affair with some you know from the past or from somewhere. It will not be easy to maintain the relationship when you share a past and you could end up becoming emotionally attached. It is best that you choose a new person who can help you get over loneliness, breakup or depression without any possible complications.

Don’t get emotionally involved or attached

This is something that most people in casual dating struggle with. You should always remember that the relationship is strictly NSA and as so it should remain. This means you there is no room for you to get jealous when they flirt with others or when they do things without telling you. You should also not feel concerned about how their day is going and whether they are fine. Never fall into the temptation of calling or stopping by to find out how they are unless you both are on for another steamy session as agreed.

Don’t use or overuse the word love

Love as a word is tricky and you want to avoid it every way possible when you are in a casual relationship so you do not end up confusing your sex buddy and getting all twisted in your head. When you keep talking about what you love about your partner then you will definitely make things very awkward between you this is something you do not want to happen. You have no obligation towards your casual partner and you can terminate the relationship whenever you want without tears and heartbreak. Strive to keep it that way.

Don’t go for random people

In as much as you do not need to get every detail regarding the person you are about to get involved with, you still want to choose someone you get along with someone who does not have any crazy behaviors such as violence. Start by making sure that they want the same arrangement as you do and use reliable casual dating sites to get your partners from. It is also advisable that you spend a little time together in public before you hit the sheets. The meetings should not be treated as dates but rather occasions to understand whether you are with the right person for the expected sexcapades.

There are so many things that need to be avoided when it comes with no strings dating. Casual dating site will make it easier for you to find the right partner for your desires.

Best Things About Having a Boyfriend

Getting to physically express love is one of the best things about having a boyfriend; no more hookups with random guys to satisfy your craving. You get opportunities to – wear sexy lingerie, kiss him passionately (whenever, wherever), maintain a sexy body, go for bike rides hugging him like cling film, and get intimate with someone you care about. Nothing beats the magical moment when you make passionate love, cuddle each other, and lovingly look into each other’s eyes.

We are all flawed humans, and need someone to vent our frustration. One of the perks of having a boyfriend is that you don’t need to have pent-up emotions; you can come home, tired, on a Friday evening, after facing a bad day and an irritated boss, and have someone to release your emotions. He will be matured enough to understand that you need to throw a few tantrums to feel at peace. Conversely, you must do the same for him.

Your parents will be over the moon that you are at least seeing someone. Speaking of family, one of the pros of having a boyfriend is that he’ll help you survive all through elaborate, traditional family dinners.

He’ll always lend you a hand. For everything. You have someone to share takeouts with, to carry heavy stuff around, to fix things inside the house, and the like. You can be sure that your man will willingly function as a part-time plumber, mechanic, electrician, dance partner, and everything else for you, including paying bills and handling your expenses. That said, do not take advantage of his chivalrous nature; acknowledge what he has done, and contribute your bit too.

Do every little thing together. Take photographs. Go for a ride. Go apple-picking and wine tasting. Like each other’s pictures. Spend important days together. Have couples’ costumes for festivals. Go for picnics by the lake. Be domestic. Cook for each other. Watch movies. Read books. Make out in the rain. Play games. Show each other off to friends. Spend quality time. Wear his shirt. Zip her dress. Talk. Understand. Fight. Makeup. Kiss. Just have fun.

Experience companionship. Be together.

He will love you despite everything. You can be embarrassing, not wax your hands, and talk about idiotic stuff. But, he’ll still pay attention to you, give you presents, hold your hand, tell you that nothing can keep the two of you apart, whisper sweet nothings, and make you blush. He is your boyfriend because he cares for you. You know he truly loves you beyond your body. And, it’s a blessing to trust him, to love him.

Ways to End a Love Triangle

Are you in love with another man or woman while still being in a relationship with someone? The obvious consequences are an unhappy relationship, adultery and three broken hearts. Quoting the character Earl Smooter from the movie Sweet Home Alabama, “You can’t ride two horses with one ass, sugarbean”. You know you are in a love triangle when you have two suitors of whom there is a preference for one over the other OR when your beloved is in love with someone else. A romantic relationship involving three people can get very messy. You may be in someone’s life and you may have deep admiration and fondness for them. But, you cannot continue this forever. Do you know how to get out of such a situation? Maybe you don’t. Love does switch off a part of your brain and everything becomes so complicated and confusing. It is okay if you don’t know what to do, which is why I have explained the solution from the shoes of all three sides of the triangle.

When You are the ‘Other’ Person

It is always difficult to be the other woman or man in your lover’s life. You don’t enjoy the rights that you should as a partner. Your love gets no acknowledgment before the world. You have to keep it all under the sheets and then even share the love with someone else who rightfully claims their ownership over your lover’s heart. Love makes us do crazy things… even willingly being the ‘other’ person. But, you need to get out of it with or without your lover. Else you will forever be stuck in a rut. Ending such a relationship is not so easy but you need to tell your lover that they can only be on either side. Tell them to either choose you or go back to where they came from. It’s about time you claim what is yours and what you deserve. And once you have made the decision to leave, stay determined because a fickle mind is a battle lost. The grief of separation will be present but if you truly promise to recuperate, you will find yourself in no time in the arms of a lover who respects and loves you unconditionally. You just need to believe in yourself and stop letting your insecurities prevent you from achieving the happiness that you deserve.

When You are in Love with Two People

Are you in love with two people? That is such a complicated situation. You are not with this one completely and you are not with that one either. What are you doing? Being in love with two people is like keeping your heart in a love limbo, a place where you will never be able to move on and enjoy a relationship, be with someone and be sure of it. You are preventing all three of you from moving on. The attention of two lovers is exciting but it serves no good when you cannot fully commit to even one. Not to forget, the guilt of it all that prevents you from having a healthy relationship with either of your lovers. Even if you are secretly in love with the second person and he/she does not know it, don’t even tell. You need to get that person out of your thoughts. Out of sight, out of mind. This is easier than you think it is because every person can control his/her mind. If you cannot, you will remain helpless. You have to choose either of the two people and then decide to be with one of them. Time mends everything and you will see that with time, you will be over the other person before you even know it.

When You are in Love Outside Your Relationship

Even when the general perceptions are that a person cannot fall in love with two people at the same time, our cinema is full of movies based on such themes and circumstances. It does happen in real life too. If you are the person in love with two people, you know it definitely does! It is a love addiction. So, how are you going to get out of this love triangle? You need to make a decision. You are essentially cheating on both your partners and in the process, hurting all three of you. Those who know, may think you are lucky to deserve the love of two people, but, inside your heart you know the complication of your actions that may rock your life, like an explosive storm suddenly, any day. Aren’t you just tired already of shuttling and hiding your affair? The tension of getting caught may be giving you the thrills, but you cannot act so selfishly especially towards the people you love. You have to let one of them go, don’t delay that decision. Now is the time, not later. You will end up hurting one of them but at least you will let them go and get the love of one person wholly.

You may make your choices based on the circumstances in your life. You love both of them but, now, you will have the chance to give all your love to one person just the way they give it to you. Stick to your decision and vow never to repeat your mistake again. Love affairs can turn very ugly and end up in grotesque crimes. Get out of it before it comes and gets you!

When You Find Out about your Partner’s Infidelity

Nothing can kill you more than knowing that the one you love so dearly is not even in love with you. Worse, he/she loves someone else. You may feel betrayed and foolish. What are you going to do now about this situation? The best thing to do is to accept the truth and confront your partner on it. If you keep mum about it or pretend to be blind, you will make yourself fall harder into a pit of pain. You will also unwillingly encourage your partner to continue with such kind of behavior. Are you willing to stay in this relationship and make it work? Then, first, ask your partner what he/she wants. Give them an ultimatum that you expect their answer by a certain period. Give yourself time too and do not communicate. If you want to work it out, do not admit unless your partner does and tells you that they are willing to mend their ways. Start afresh. Is that not the option for you? Vent your anger on him and express your disappointment, then, try to get over the breakup.
It is not easy ending a romantic relationship which involves three people, but you will thank yourself later and live happily after, minus a third person. You will breathe a sigh of relief. Nobody wants to be in such a love turmoil because then it starts messing with your head and your life. You will never be truly happy from the inside because there will only be short-lived and fleeting moments of happiness. Ultimately, your inner voice will haunt you until you get yourself out of it and never go back.
