Someone here recently recommended a book called "How to Spot A Dangerous Man... Before You Get Involved."

I received my copy in the mail yesterday. I ordered this book, not because I'm still hung up on my ex-N (thank God), but because this is part of my ongoing evaluation and discovery of myself this year and what I want out of life.

That being said... I'm reading post after post the past couple of days about the various "dangerous" men I've just read about: The affairs with married men, the narcissist, the mentally disordered (BPD, etc.), the users, etc.

Ladies, READ THIS BOOK!! A lot of it is information that we've all read here or other sites, but it is written in such a way that just really spoke to me. Don't let the title fool you. It's as much for those who are currently in these relationships as well as those who are not but yet have a past history of repeating these unhealthy patterns over and over and over.

She points out very clearly, and I agree, that so many of these signs are there for us to see and feel in the very beginning, but we choose to ignore them, for whatever reasons. The gist of the book is that yes, there ARE dangerous men out there. However, it is up to US to learn to see them and see what they are truly showing us and what our minds and bodies are telling us when we see these red flags. It also goes into why we chose to ignore these red flags (although there is a work book that one can get with this book to delve more deeply into this, another MUST).

I don't know about the rest of you, but frankly I'm sick and tired of my life patterns when it comes to men. I am determined to never ignore my red flags and fall for the bullsh** again. Even if that means I stay single, which I'm totally okay with, if it means I get to be healthy and mentally and emotionally strong.

Come on, ladies, forego that extra latte or two this week and make one of the best investments of your life, BUY THIS BOOK and take it to heart.

Now, I can't mention this again, or I will fall into crossing the guidelines of "advertising" something, I think. 🙂

thank you I will be getting my book this evening. I really need it. I must break this terrible cycle of falling for the wrong men. I need to gain my dignity back and tell myself I deserve better.
