For the better portion of my 20s, I’ve been single.And not just solo, but really-really-really-want-to-be-in-a-relationship-crazy-obsessed-single-gal. And making these mistakes isn’t even a bad thing as long as you learn from them for the future.
Your first serious relationship is memorable for many reasons.
This is your first boyfriend or girlfriend we’re talking about here – obviously you’re always going to remember this person just because of that.
I'm not just talking about friends - you might cancel family plans to be with him or not do as well in your school because you're so focused on him. Trust your gut - if you really feel like he's doing something wrong, he probably is.

(FYI, we have a whole chapter on this in our new book “He’s Not That Complicated: How to Crack a Man’s Romantic Code to Get the Relationship You Want“) Even the kindest, most well-meaning, most empathetic guy won’t be able to satisfy a woman who acts needy the majority of the time. I would be pretty surprised if you never had a needy guy around you. Making someone else responsible for your emotions is a key ingredient in creating a toxic relationship type dynamic, so it’s very important to guard against doing that (as well as recognize when others are doing that towards you).
