Of course, not all men need to be “straightened out,” but before I met my girlfriend I was, as a former coworker once labeled me, “A hot ass mess.”Don’t get me wrong; I was employed, working on a master’s degree, writing and enjoying my life.

Recruit a support system of friends and family to help you fill the time normally spent with a significant other. Maybe you’d just rather be in a bad relationship than be in no relationship at all.
