Jillian is giving relationship advice! Looking for love?
1. Go where people who are single and like-minded are likely to be. Get out of the house. Go on the dating websites. Match.com. Plentyoffish.com. Ask your friends to set you up.
2. Let go of perfection. For your and for a potential beau. The grass is going to be greener where you water it. On the flip side, don't feel that you can change someone to be something that they're not. Don't think that if you're good enough, you can mold them into who you want them to be.
3. Don't fall in love with being in love. No need to fast-track it. You don't get to see the real person for at least three months. After that you see the insecurities and ugly things about people. Important stuff.
Called Natalie. Jillian called her as "The Love Doctor." Natalie was cheated on. She thinks it's her fault. Jillian thinks the guy had issues. Natalie said there were red flags. Jillian said, "Aha!"
He had intrinsic issues, and Natalie thought she could change him. You can't change somebody. She thinks that if she's thin, good, smart, funny enough, the red flags will go away and she'll change this person. This person is probably reminiscent of someone in her past.
When she was a child, her parents wanted her to lose weight. Jillian wants Natalie to realize that these issues are about the old boyfriend and parents, not her.
In the future, Natalie needs to leave the relationship if she feels that dynamic of not feeling good enough. She has to change. She has to stop trying to be everything to everyone. Instead of putting the energy into everyone else, she needs to put it into herself. Turn the energy inward, and you will start to feel more fulfilled. You won't feel depleted.
Jillian's new book is out! Slim for Life. Check it out.
