One of the biggest mistakes in a relationship, be it platonic or romantic is not understanding a simple fact.
That would be that feelings cannot be wrong.
The understanding of a situation that brings an uncomfortable feeling may be misinterpreted, yet the emotion is as real as it can be. Never ever say [COLOR=Blue]“What you are feeling is wrong”[/COLOR] (you’ll lose).
Understand and respect its validity… Emotions are a very deep seated and don’t fade or change quickly.
Open dialog with acknowledgment of such, then work on analyzing (listening) and discussing. Expect time for change. (patience)
Keep in mind guys, we (women) are very emotional creatures. It may be annoying as hell at times… but it is what we are, it’s our hormonal / physical design.
