Dating can be scary. Even scarier, for many, is the idea of getting your heart broken. While a broken heart may often feel like the worst thing in the world, it is very likely that time has taught you that it really isn’t the worst thing in the world. Nevertheless, who wants to go through the process of healing from one, especially when it might be preventable in the first place? Recently Essence highlighted 12 ways to avoid a broken heart. Here are 3:

1. “Accept Responsibility” – Remember the role you play in your quest to be happy. According to Kevin Carr “fulfillment and satisfaction ultimately begins and ends with you.”

2. “Know Yourself” – Know what you want out of life and a relationship. This can help prevent you from becoming both frustrated and disappointed when things don’t go the way you desire them to.

3. “Lay Down the Law” – People set their own standards for how they want to be treated, particularly by the people they love. Set the type of standards you want the person pursing you to “live up to.” Additionally once you set your standards be sure to maintain them.

    Aw, this was a really nice post. Taking a few minutes and actual
    effort to produce a top notch article… but what can I say… I procrastinate a lot and never seem to get anything done.
