LIVE // One of the most important things to have in any dating relationship is self-control—the ability to control your emotions and impulses. The truth is, once you hit a certain level of emotional attachment or cross certain physical lines with a boyfriend or girlfriend, it’s difficult to take steps back. That’s why it’s so important to set boundaries and guidelines for your dating life—even before you’re in a relationship. When we don’t have boundaries, we open ourselves up to act on impulse. But strong and clear boundaries help keep those emotions and impulses in check. Have you established clear boundaries for your dating life? Even if you’re not in a relationship right now, take a few minutes to think about what your boundaries will be for a future dating relationship.
