My Opinion About Most Relationship Books

About This Photo: My Personal Parody Of Relationship Book Covers
Most of the kinds of relationship books that offer this kind advice was offered by bitter people. They thought they would do others a favor and prevent them from getting hurt. I thought would work, so I followed quite a bit of this advice for years.

However, most of the advice I read in dating books did me very little good. I am now still technically single and almost too old to have kids of my own. Was that the kind of future that these books were supposed to provide me?

If I had to do it all over again, I would've given relationships a chance more when I was younger. I say this because when I was younger there was more people available who didn't have kids yet and who didn't have ex baggage. Having a relationship with someone would've been a lot easier then--and it wasn't like I was just a loser no one wanted. A fair amount of people were actually attracted to me. 

On The Other Hand

I know. There's always an “on the other hand” when you read my posts. I should admit that I felt that it was more important for me to heal from past sexual abuse before I get married. Maybe for a few years after leaving the scene where it happened was necessary.

However, I think now I should've just opened my heart to someone who may have accepted my situation for what it is. I also maybe should've opened my heart up to someone who may not have been perfect but at least loved me. If only I didn't realize a lot sooner in life that I didn't have to be perfect to be married, my life would be so much more like I want.
