What you should do if you started dating a girl you really like, but your nice guy ways caused her to put you in friends zone and start dating her ex again. How to get out of the friends zone if you put yourself there by being too nice and accommodating to the detriment and suppression of your own wants, needs and desires.
In this video coaching newsletter I discuss an email from a viewer who is stuck in friends zone with a woman who went back to her ex after he started over-pursuing her only 3 weeks into dating her.
He knows his behavior has driven her away, but he’s driving himself nuts because he is too scared to stand up for himself out of his fear he will lose her, even though he is ignoring the fact that she is now dating and sleeping with her ex again. He has not slept with her at all and is deluding himself into thinking that the relationship will become more if he continues on with his nice guy ways.
If you have a question you would like me to consider answering in a future Video Coaching Newsletter, you can send it (3-4 paragraphs/500 words max) to this email address: Questions@UnderstandingRelationships.com

“One of the hardest things to do in life is to stand up for yourself in a society that places such a huge emphasis on conformity, trying not to offend others, being politically correct, going along to get along and basically sacrificing who you are in order to be accepted by those who you deem important. Once our identity becomes associated with a lover, friend, business, career, social status, etc., it becomes difficult to let go of those attachments to embrace who you truly are. Fear of loss is often so overwhelming that most people will sacrifice their happiness, dreams and desires in order to gain the acceptance of others which is usually fleeting and fickle anyways. You’ll never be truly happy unless you are living a life of your own choosing and design. A life that is free from the need to gain the approval or acceptance of others. When you can find fulfillment, happiness and satisfaction in your own work and efforts, the acceptance or approval of others becomes irrelevant and unnecessary.” ~ Coach Corey Wayne
