So I jettisoned someone this week whom I'd been dating for 2 1/2 months, who suddenly turned all colors of crazy and unkind.
It was a lot easier to do because over the course of our dating I:
1. Never showed him where I lived.
2. Kept dating other men instead of jumping into an instant relationship with him.
Just a little scoop from one who's been there. It takes 2-3 months for either sex's real personality to show up. It's best not to get attached before you really meet them.
And now I have one less degree to be frightened of him, because I don't have to be watching for him to show up at my place with flowers. Phew!
