Dr. Phil has a saying, “If you ask for half a loaf, guess what you’re gonna get? Half a loaf.” Jodi Arias did not realize or accept that she was worth the whole loaf. It’s the biggest dating mistake any self-respecting woman that is dating in the 21st century can make….settling to remain a mermaid or the unidentified friend with benefits when the woman wants so much more.
Like most red blooded women she equated sex with love, and so despite the fact that all signs were there, she did not want to accept that she was just being used for sex because the love was just so there for her.
Dating Don’t: Travis Alexander would still be alive today if Jodi Arias had just opened her insight to the fact that all signs were pointing to the oh so obvious, and respected herself enough to accept that and move on. Like many women, she wanted more and thought sex was the way to get to it. Big time dating don’t.
Would we be having this conversation today if Jodi had accepted one of those four date invitations that week in January 2008? We will never know.
If you want more, you have to give yourself enough respect to have the “awkward conversation” and walk away if he doesn’t want what you want. If you truly believe in your heart that you are worth having what you want, and you should, then ask for that whole loaf. Don't walk away without asking for it though, because your lover can not read your mind. Ask. And if this bakery isn’t offering it, there’s one not too far off that is. But getting there will require some authentic action on your part.
