  • always try to think ahead :) it might sound silly but it works! like when my bf said we need to talk i was just like he is gonna dump be i put happy thoughts in my head and kinda visualized how it was gonna happen, so he dumped me and i felt better then ever :) it spared me the tears felt good!
  • #1 Always be yourself- when you try to conform into what he/she want's you to be that person will never get to know YOU! So when the real you shows up, they can't deal. #2 Don't give too much too early- When people are intimate too soon it spells trouble because there vision is hindered. There is less communication when sex enters the relationship. #3 Don't give out more than what you get- Ex: You always call him/her and they never call you. Or you find yourself filling in the blanks in relationship by always being the initiator. Hope this helps; PEACE!
  • 1.) Only go out with people you have absolutely no feelings for. 2.) Become a callous, cold-hearted bastard. :P
  • One can only reduce the risk of getting hurt by being in love by reducing the chance of feeling the euphoric happiness that comes with being in love. Personally, I'd rather risk it. In fact, I'm doing so now, and it's working rather well for me. My girlfriend will agree.
  • don't love. it's the easiest way, yet painful in many others. so it itself has its own repercussions.
  • By loving only those people who you trust not to cheat betray you!
  • Once you are in love... it's too late to reduce any risk if you have already put your heart into it. The trick is not letting a relationship develop that you know is not healthy. Sadly sometimes the love doesn't last forever and we will hurt, however great the love was is how hard it will hurt once its gone. Because it can be so high is why they say it is better to have loved and lost then never to have loved at all because it really is that great when you have it :)
  • get the conditions straight before you fall in love

  • By never falling in love, otherwise there is always that risk.
  • I feel for you , Kaetalist---sounds like a painful time for you right now. I could give advice, but not sure if that's really what you're looking for. How about a big (((((HUG))))) & a cup of hot chocolate? (Anytime, by the way...) Wish you well.
  • You can't,but isn't that part of what makes it so exciting.
  • Don't fall in love.... that's pretty much the only way you're going to drop the risk. Other than that, you gotta accept that there are risks, and if you don't trust your partner, you'll never have a good relationship anyways, and you'll end up being hurt because of yourself.
  • never venturing out of your room or house.
  • 1) "It is essentially impossible to escape childhood without experiencing some kind of emotional wounding or hurt - whether by parents, siblings, school friends, teachers, religious leaders, neighbors. All of us, then, have developed certain "emotional scabs" or ways of relating designed to minimize or reduce the chances of our being hurt again. Often these "protections, scabs, defenses, character adaptations" are automatic and unconscious. They are often excluded from our awareness and seem as natural as breathing. And they are often carried into adult life and become part of our character. These protective strategies feel like "this is just the way I am." But these are not the core self, the essence of self; these are "scabs" developed as the result of wounds. It is these unconscious, automatic protective styles that have such a powerful impact on our loving relationships. See Sources of Conflict in the Couples Fun-Love-Work Station. Herein is a great irony. What worked for you well as a child will only get you in trouble in your marriage. The way you learned to protect yourself from the hurts, wounds, anxieties, stresses of childhood worked for you. You should get a distinguished medal of honor for making it successfully through your struggles. But if you use those same strategies in your marriage or intimate love relationship, you will end up only replicating your partner's childhood wounds and activating their defenses or protections or "scabs" and thereby deepening the conflict and hurt in the relationship. See “How We Choose Our Mates.""

But, it's in the total surrender of all defense, That we, no matter weak or strong, No matter willing or captive, No matter what, we truly experience love. Despite the many things love is not, Outweighing it all are the things that love is. Love is surrender without a loss. It is a gift without the cost. It consumes your every thought & desire, Every breath you take. It is the fire that fuels you To do more than pass through life; It urges you, instead, to live. No matter the outcome, having felt love, You will never be the same. It may scar your heart & soul And Leave you only memories of forever. Or, it may cause every day of your life To feel like there is no need for tomorrow. But, love is worth it. It is worth the risk... For in all of life, Love is truly the only risk worth taking."

  • don't love.
  • love is a risky game to play
  • By entering the relationship with a realistic set of expectations; by not expecting more from your partner than you are willing to give; by accepting that will be highs and lows. Other than that, it's in the lap of the gods and as my father once said, don't gamble if you're not prepared to lose the money.
  • choose wisely...people will show you who they are through their behavior, watch for it and don't start putting up with something that you aren't willing to put up with for the rest of your life.
  • Take out insurance.
  • Dont Love
