There’s something real in women’s intuition. It’s an accurate signpost for decision making, but it usually bumps up against man’s logic. So we have to put ego aside and listen to them.
I didn’t realize it when I was younger and that led to a lot of confusion and pain, but I tend to have pretty good intuition on relationships and people. I’ve made business decisions that while based on paper sounded great in my gut simply felt wrong and regretted later on. The same can be said of relationships where I felt it would lead to a disastrous end the positives seemed too good to pass up. In most steps of my life from commitments to purchases to almost any other big decision I’ve realized that my instincts and intuition were more often likely to be right than wrong when compared to my more rational side.
Go with Your Gut, uhh I Meant Heart
Usually from a first glance or meeting I can sense where a relationship with a person can go in the future. With girls I’ve dated I can sense usually by the end of the first date whether this relationship has a real future or not. Whether or not this is a person I would love, be infatuated with or a mere fling. Some may say that I am simply creating a self fulfilling prophecy by entering a relationship with these ideas in my head, but in almost every case where I stayed longer than I should have it was based on ‘logically’ making things work.
I think that most people when they start a relationship with someone can intuit these things once they have a basis of understanding who they are and what they want from their lives. I’ve met people who I know would have a life changing affect on me and instead of fighting it, I went with it and even though most life changing circumstances tend to be filled with hardship, in almost every case I’ve come out the other end a ‘better’ person.
I think the older you get the better you can be at finding the right person mainly because you understand yourself better. In our teen years we really don’t know who or what we are so just go with simple factors like is that person cute, are they popular, do they like me. Usually just having someone liking you is a good enough reason to be interested in them. As you get older though you realize that there are more people out there who will like you so that is not a good enough reason. You want to find someone compatible with you. In most cases you can come up with certain traits that you like and dislike and as you get older the list will grow at times and shrink and others, but in most cases your gut feeling will be a good indicator.
“I believe in intuitions and inspirations…I sometimes FEEL that I am right. I do not KNOW that I am.”
― Albert Einstein
Even in cases where I knew something would be ‘bad’ for me in the short run my intuition told me I should do it and even though I suffered through many a heartache the end result was never in a heartbreak. The times that I followed my instinct and hunches in relationships I’ve realized that I have no regrets whereas the times I followed reason and logic, I tend to look back and wonder what could have been. How different my life could have been. Logic and reason tends to be the easy way out of things, the safe way, but intuition and going with your gut is the road less traveled.
There will be times when you know that you are right about something regardless of what all the facts and evidence there is set before you. In those cases I’ve realized for me at least to live a life with as few regrets as possible I’ll go with my intuition and that crazy feeling.~
