Dating a girl with emotional baggage
"You can still make it work, it just depends on your dynamics."All of us are doing the best we can to become a better version of ourselves.
The next time you're talking about something that you know is difficult for your partner, make sure you're intentionally listening to what they have to say (and vice versa).
One of the toughest things about dating is slowly uncovering the secrets in our past that we may not be not proud of or personality traits that may not work well together.
It's not easy figuring out how to deal with relationship baggage, especially if you're still in the honeymoon phase.
The whole point of dealing with baggage is to help both of you move forward, together.
And once you've discussed all that baggage and talked so much about it until there's nothing more to say or analyze, keep it all in the past if you can help it.
I mean, you got together (hopefully) because you make each other happy, right?
And the truth is that everyone has baggage to some degree, Chlipala points out.
The fact that he or she cheated on someone else doesn't necessarily mean relationship is over, but you should talk about any concerns you may have or details you'd like to know about the situation.
"If you still can’t live with your partner’s baggage in a way that works for your relationship, it may be a deal-breaker," Chlipala says.
