dating kryptonite & the BLOW OFF

Superman's only known weakness is kryptonite and sadly almost everyone has their own form of dating kryptonite. You know, that one person that gets to us every time. Whenever you run in to them or hear from them you go weak at your knees and no matter how hard you try you can't resist.

No matter what, there's one person in my life that I can't resist. I tell myself how wrong for me he is. I practice all of the things that I'm going to say to him the next time I see him and he starts flirting with me. But the second I see him all of that dissipates. I can't even resist his late night flirty texts.
All reason and rationale escapes me and somehow I become this doe-eyed girl who is completely at his mercy. Recently I was on a date with one guy and he started texting me and I was paying more attention to his texts than to my date and I suddenly wanted out of the date and wished I was hanging out with him. He trumped that date with just the word hi.

What is it about these people that gets to us like no one else can? It could be for a number of reasons. Maybe you're holding out the hope that your relationship will resume or turn into something more. Maybe you never had the proper closure to begin with. Or maybe it's just some kind of undeniable chemistry.

But one thing is for sure, they are dangerous and deadly just like Superman's foe. So how exactly do we stop ourselves from succumbing to them? That remains the million dollar question and if anyone can in fact come up with a successful way to avoid your dating kryptonite and avoid making a choice you might later regret, please comment below. I'm stumped!



  1. ugh, I've had a few of these guys in my past. they are impossible to ignore.

  2. Completely understand and agree. It could be the biggest a-hole but for some reason we just can't stay away
