Dating people like your parent
I was actually making myself more upset because I didn't grieve the way the people told me to.Now, I just take things one day at a time and when I need to cry, I cry.Although far from perfect, they have years of experience and wisdom that you don’t have yet.This might enable them to see the character faults in your bf/gf a whole lot easier than you, especially if you’re blinded by the deep emotions you feel for your bf/gf.
Then learning how to deal with conflicts within a relationship can be painful, as well.
They will always have a reason to grieve But, many people can tell you things like when they think someone is going to die or how much time they "really" have left, etc. You never know when they are actually going to leave your life forever.
In that moment that you find out that your loved one has passed, your whole outlook on life changes and even though you might have said those words to yourself once or twice in your head to "prepare," nothing ever prepares you for the real thing.
Parents remember their own good and bad choices while dating.
They just want you to be protected from bad consequences which could affect the rest of your life.
I am single as can be at the moment because it is beyond difficult to find someone who not only understands what its like for me to have lost my Mom but someone who can deal with how things hit me.
