When it comes to relationships, I'm not so good at getting into them. I've noticed that the more I like a guy, the more likely I am to be standoffish and awkward around him. It's a bad habit fed by some unhelpful thoughts that are cluttering up my world view.

But to my surprise, I've come to realize that, once I'm in a relationship, my instincts are amazingly good. It's as if I automatically know what to do and say (or not do and not say) to give the relationship a full and fair chance -- or at least the chance it deserves based on the quality of the guy and the quality of his affection. And in my more serious relationships, I've noticed that my heart knows -- long before my brain catches up -- when I need to move on.
