Unfortunately, what we deserve is not always what we get.
When cupid's arrow feels more like a thorn in our side, one girlfriend's handbook reminds us to never compromise our standards and settle for less.

DASH’s early warning signs are meant to guide you in determining whether your relationship is healthy.
As women, we deserve respect and adoration-especially in our romantic lives.I’m positive they haven’t had sex because this woman is perfectly happy to be worshiped for free, but I have a serious problem with their relationship. She told him “not gonna happen” — next she’ll be telling that to Human Resources.When my husband announced that he was going to meet her after work for drinks last night, I made a very snarky remark and he was furious. You let this man drape his moist, snotty self all over your lap and wail about another woman? I’m sorry your 15 year old is in the middle of this, but he’s a kid and he doesn’t get to call the shots in your marriage.You need to be able to tell the difference between a silly nickname and an abusive one.Any time your partner chooses to insult you, your appearance, your intelligence, your choices or opinions it’s emotional abuse.But upon further probing, I discovered that it was the rejection that had him crying in my lap. He explained that he was having trouble forgiving me for my initial rejection of him when we were in high school and then he dumped a laundry list of problems he had with me that could circle the planet three times. He and the almost-OW never had sex and now we’re back together. he has remained very good friends with the almost-OW. I won’t stoop to snooping on his phone but I can see what he’s writing! He’s moves home, and then he goes right back to the same old shit? Who cares if he thinks you are “petty” — do you think this kind of flagrant disrespect belongs in a marriage? You don’t need a marriage counselor to explain to him that dating other women in front of you and then whinging about it is wrong. He’s being very in-your-face about his attempted infidelities to hurt you. This guys is walking the razor’s edge of a sexual harassment lawsuit.
