1. Thinking we’ll never get over him. We will. Two months and several powdered donuts later… we’ll feel better.
2. Hacking into email or phones looking for suspicious messages and then yelling at him for the “k thnx bye” text he sent to his female co-worker two months ago. “k thnx” is not code for “hot steamy sex.” (Is it?)
3. Thinking our partners must be interested in everything we do, think and say. When it comes down to it, we zone out when men talk about circuit boards, right? Having a best friend or gab partner outside a relationship is a good thing.
4. Displacing. Freud was right with this one. If we’re mad at him because he ate our tasty restaurant leftovers out of the fridge, tell him we’re mad at him because he ate our tasty restaurant leftovers out of the fridge. Don’t turn it into a commitment issue.
