I came across a quote today from the ever-sexy Matthew Hussy, dating guru. He said, “don’t invest in a guy based on how much you like him, invest in a guy based on how much he invests in you.” Whoa. Mind. Blown. Now I know what mistake I’ve been making in my love life! I’ve always approached everything based on how much I like something. I love to dance, so I always want to go out dancing. I love to sing so I’m always looking for opportunities to perform. But Mr. Hussy’s advice is so spot on. Why should I invest more time, effort and love in a guy than he does in me? I come from a family where we talk about everything (and I mean everything at the dinner table). Nothing has ever been off-limits…periods, boners, religion, politics…I’m being completely serious. So it was only natural for me to become somewhat of an open book and to wear my heart on my sleeve. I always thought that following your heart was the way to go…but I think I need to take a step back and work on guarding my heart a little more and then maybe just maybe I won’t get so heart-broken all the time.
