You’ve been dating for:
- One day
- One week
- 3 months
- 6 months
He’s acting different. Suddenly, he’s:
Which makes you act out. You get:
Sometimes you’re the guy in the above. Sometimes he plays the girl role. But either way…
It’s normal. And happens pretty much every time one of you asks yourself:
Is this whole thing worth continuing?
At work, it’s a Go/No Go. A Decision Point. Time for a Cost/Benefit Analysis. And it would look something like this: Sit back. Look at all the angles. Run the numbers. Check to see if there’s any history of crazy with this vendor. Make a decision.
No big deal.
In relationships, though, it’s easy to get freaked out when a Decision Point arises. You overthink. Stress. Forget to analyze. Ask sources to weigh in on a scenario they know nothing about.
Stop. Take a moment. Put your business hat on. And evaluate.
- What are your triggers?
- What are you looking for, exactly?
- Is he really what you want…or do you just not like losing?
That way, when he starts acting distant, weird, or prickly…you’ll be ready.
And making a decision will be so much easier.
