I admit it. I'm guilty of having held onto a guy because his image was so perfect that I wanted to make it work no matter what. My biggest mistake was caring too much about what my friends thought.
Praise for my last pseudo-boyfriend:
"He has the emotional maturity of a muffin."
"I wouldn't worry about him too much. He's just a phase, right?"
"He sounds like such a loser."
"Wow, he's awkward."
"You guys are perfect for each other because you're both so weird."

Can you honestly blame me? He was a catch. I had to have him for as long as I could.
