Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, aka DATING PTSD. Does it exist? You betcha! Sometimes in life, after we’ve had a bad dating experience we transfer or project that experience onto another individual who has similar characteristics. ‘Oh, I dated an older man before an this happened.’ ‘Oh, no, I dated a Scorpio before and he was a cheater!’ Or, ” I dated a guy who was separated from his wife, but it turns out they were only separated by an ocean as she was on vacation in Europe.” Any time we come across someone who broke our hearts or lied to us in the past, sometimes, we have the tendency to project the same characteristics onto a new person who wants to date us. You can’t judge a book by it’s cover, and the same is true for dating. So, even if the last ‘investment banker’ you dated was a cheater, it doesn’t mean the new candidate standing before your eyes is. Open your heart and your mind, but stay strong and smart! And always remember to value yourself before you value others.
