Waiting for Your Partner to Change, Part 1

Updated: Jan 5


Waiting for Your Partner to Change, Part 1

Ever dated someone who needs to change?

Like Molly. She’s been dating Tim for six weeks.

They see each other twice weekly, but he’s usually late or distracted.

Last week he was 30 minutes late to a restaurant and two hours late getting over to her place. And he barely communicates the other days.

He talks about how busy he is at work and apologizes a lot.

She likes his ambition and work ethic, but the amount of time they spend together is not enough. She’s always waiting for him to text or initiate plans.

She wonders why he bothers dating at all. She and her friends talk about all the mistakes he’s making. “Doesn’t he know what a quality woman you are? Why be on a dating app if he’s not going to make you a priority? He better shape up, or he’s gonna find himself alone.”

Molly isn’t happy in the relationship and feels resentful and frustrated way too often.

But she’s still dating him.

Why?

Well, that’s the question we answer in coaching.

There are so many reasons women stay in relationships that don’t suit them.

🤷🏻‍♀️ 🤷🏻‍♀️ 🤷🏻‍♀️

We argue and hope things will change, especially when we think we’re right. To us, it seems so obvious that the other person is wrong. So we stick around assuming this person will see the light.

Why am I talking about this?

Because so many women fall into this trap.

The trap of wishful thinking.

If you’re unhappy, yet staying in the relationship where the guy seems obviously wrong, there’s a reason.

But it’s not the reason you think it is.

If this sounds like you and you’d like to figure out what’s keeping you with a guy who’s not acting right, let’s talk. Sign up for a free consult on the home page.
