Happy Tuesday everyone. I hope everyone had a fabulous Labor Day weekend! Staying true to routine I thought it’d be cool to share some dating disaster stories. When browsing, I came across a story on shape.com that I’d like to share with you all.

Not Very Professional
“I’d been dating a guy for about a month, and things were going great. We were seeing each other at least four times a week, he kept mentioning how he’d never felt like this about a woman before, and I was pretty sure he was The One. That is, until I got a message from him asking to be his friend on LinkedIn. I responded, then looked through his connections—one was a woman with the same last name as him. Because I’m curious, I did some digging—I assumed it was his sister. No, based on a Google search, it was his wife. Of course, I immediately called him out—and he insulted me, calling me a stalker!” -Kelly, 31
Have you ever been duped or misled by someone? It is a terrible feeling to fall deeply for someone only to later find out they are unavailable or married. For some, it is an instant indication that the relationship is over. However, sometimes if an individual feels strongly enough for someone, they will continue on in a relationship with hope that they will leave their husband or wife. Dishonesty is never justified in my opinion. If you are truly finished with a relationship, despite your history or life connections such as children, sometimes it is better to just end it or walk away. Some couples even split up and date other people to see if the ending of the relationship is proper or not. However, both parties should be enlightened to this arrangement. I feel bad for Kelly because she thought she found the one, and was forced to end it because of his dishonesty and negligence. To me, when it comes to relationships honesty really is the best policy.
