Holding Out for Mr. Right?

Lessons from Being Mary Jane & Dr. Love

”Should Mary Jane, or any woman, consider settling down (sort of) with Mr. “I just might be your last chance?” Absolutely not, says the “Modern Love Doctor,” Brenda Wade, Ph.D.

“If you buy into that theory, you are saying that you believe in a limited view of yourself, men and the world," Wade says. "If you have a limited view, it limits you in other ways. You may have children with limited views.”

Holding onto a relationship with someone who does not see your true value or meet your needs and desires may even have a negative impact on your health, Wade advises.

“If you are unhappy, it leads to stress and raised cortisol levels. It is not good for you on any level.” Click for more love lessons.
