Cook’s Dating Rule #10- Do me a favor-when a person tells you that they don’t want to be bothered…leave them alone. We play ourselves by either thinking they don’t mean what they’re saying or our ego gets in the way out of being rejected. You make yourself more vulnerable to pain when you continue to pursue. There are too many people in the world for you to lose your character over one. You are better than that. Move on to the next one. Too many fish in the sea, but you want Starkist. ..stop that!
