when it comes to love, dating and relationships? Wether it was from your father, brother(s), cousin(s), or male friends.

Are you serious?

There is like "5" views and no comments.

Does that mean you have learned nothing from men??

I've learned that life's too short to worry about guys. Especially when it somes to guys not calling, breaking dates, cheating, etc.
I don't put up with that behavior. When I was younger, I held on to this guy I thought was my bf, he didn't treat me well at all, making no effort at all in the "relationship", so finally I "ended" it, even though it didn't feel like anything anyway! and after that and a few losers I let get close to me, I just decided, you know what? I am no longer going to accept this behavior. I am going to empower myself by not caring about these losers, not calling them, etc. Now I have adaopted a "don't give a s**t" attitude, meaning if the guy doesn't call me, just want to have sex, etc, I stop contact immediately (don't give a s**t). I forget his name and number, and move on.
then when they call 2 -3 months later (which most of them do) I have already forgotten who they were!

I learnt from my dad that I will always be his princess. I learnt from my husband that its difficult to deal with terribe moodswings but it makes it easier if I try and let go of few things. I learnt from my husband the meaning of being loved. I learnt from my brother the feeling of belonging to a family.
I learnt from my co-workers that its not worth even thinking about them. Over all, I learnt that there are good and bad apples in the basket. Its up to me to be careful what I choose.

I learnt that there is always going to be differences between men and women.

When I was in high school, my father gave me the wise words of "Stay away from boys. You don't want to have to deal with that crap now." I'm so glad I never got involved in "relationships" or was sexually active in my teen years.

My husband has taught me A LOT...as a partner and as a friend. From a relationship standpoint, when we were dating, but exclusive, he told me there were no "breaks". Either we communicate and work it out together or we split for good.

Otherwise I learned what not to do by observing others.
