Anyway - she's single and has had a few dodgy relationships (haven't we all?) and as girls do - we got talking about it. (Note for chaps...that's not all we talk about - but it is one of our favourite topics!)
Of course I told her all about being a Princess Shiny Diamond and all that entails. Placing a high value on yourself and not settling for anything less than what you want in a relationship. Understanding that a man who loves you will not treat you badly - and if he does - go find somebody who treats you nicely instead (there are plenty out there).
We have all been in relationships that are less than satisfactory - and we all have the choice to stay or leave. If you stay - you run the risk of not being available for the nice men when they come along (which they do!)
So off she went with the the advice to join a nice dating website - and go out and have some fun - there are thousands of men out there who are looking for a lovely lass like Emma (names have been changed to protect the innocent).
From my own personal experience on dating websites (which you have no doubt read about on here) you meet a lot of frogs - but every now and then you unearth a diamond - I did - and I'm off to live with him at the weekend!!!
Good Luck Emma (Names have been changed.....)
