Why does love break the heart so

I'm sick of being broken my heart all the time - these are my rules!

I know that getting a broken heart is inevitable, but that doesn't mean I'll go down without a fight.

I'll be as careful as possible so I don't get smeared on too many times in a row. I'm smarter now than ever, so I'm not giving you the chance to break my heart.

1. I'M NOT AFRAID OF RUNNING.

I'm not so desperate for love that I'll lower my standards to be in a relationship. If you treat me like shit then I have no problem ending things with you.

Love is supposed to do you good. It's not there to make you feel like dirt.

2. I WILL NOT FALL IN LOVE WITH LOSERS ANYMORE.

I can't stop myself from falling for a loser, but I can stop myself from dating you. I've been with so many losers that now I know all the red flags.

This means that once you show your true color, there is no chance I will continue to waste my time with you.

3. I WILL STAY SINGLE AS LONG AS I HAVE TO.

I have no problem waiting a few months or even years before getting into a serious relationship. I'm in no hurry to settle down.

After all, being single isn't as bad as an unhealthy relationship. There is a lot that I want to discover in this world, relationships are not the only thing.

4. I WILL NOT DEAL WITH MIXED SIGNALS.

If you complicate my life from the start then dating is just a problem. That's why I'm no longer willing to go out with men who play games.

I can wait until I find someone who is honest and really tells me the truth instead of wasting my time on someone who is hiding behind moronic dating rules.

5. I WILL NOT confuse lust with love.

I used to be confused about what love really means, but now I know. It's not just about finding someone attractive and inviting them to bed. It's so much more than that.

6. I WILL NOT DATE WITH A MAN I CANNOT TRUST.

I am not being cheated. Do you know why? As soon as you prove to me that I can't trust you, I'll walk away without thinking twice about it, no matter how much history we have in common or how much I love you.

I am completely loyal, so I expect the other side to do the same.

7. I WILL NOT ALLOW LOVE TO BECOME MY PRIORITY.

If I were obsessed with you, it would feel like my whole world collapsed when you broke up with me.

But if I balance my love life with a thriving social life and career, then getting abandoned won't be that bad. It will still hurt, but the pain will be bearable.

8. I WILL NOT JUST GIVE MY HEART.

I won't fall in love with the first man who will give me a little attention. I'll be looking for someone who really deserves my love.

You will not break my heart because I will only give my heart to men who are worth my effort.

9. MY HEART IS MADE OF STEEL.

You might piss me off, but you won't break my heart. I've been injured so many times that I have become numb to pain. Besides, I'm way too strong to let any man ruin me.

I'm way too strong to hide at home and let the heartache devour me. I'm way too strong for a guy to control my emotions.
