How Do I Keep a Man from Leaving Me?

Q: My last three boyfriends have broken up with me and never looked back. I thought my last boyfriend was my true soul mate, but he dumped me too. I am afraid of loving a man again, but I can't stand to live a life without romance. Why do men keep leaving me? How can I make a man stay?

A: Not all relationships are guaranteed to last...even if you think they are perfect. Rather than put yourself in a victim role by saying that all men leave you, consider what role you had that turned the relationship sour. This new perspective will shed light on the role you played that contributed to the failed relationship.

There is no way to make a man stay in a relationship he doesn't want to be in. All you can do is keep an eye on your behaviors as well as his to recognize—and fix—problem areas as soon as you see them. The longer you wait to address them, the more difficult they will be to repair.

And lastly, as long as you continue to be open to love, it will always come into your life.
