This is true for women too. never forget this quote! Sometimes we're so excited to be with someone that we make excuses for behavior that we know deep down isn't right, if we're making excuses, it probably isn't the right relationship.
Been saying this for years, and it is absolutely true. I can finally smile again and sleep at night, because I'm not worrying about where I stand with someone who refused to let me go and was too chickensh*t to be honest with himself or me.
