Do you attract toxic people? In this post, I will give you six reasons why you often find yourself dating toxic people. Here’s a checklist!
1. You are Positive and Pleaser.
If you have too much positivity you tend to ignore the red flags. You might think that it is possible to change the person. You may even think tell yourself how strong you are to handle this red flag. Most positive people do everything just to please the people around them.
2. You are Honest and Open-minded.
People say that “Honesty is the best policy!” Well, some of us are too honest with our feelings. Some people find it easy to confess what they feel. Even if the other person does not feel the same way about you, you tend to be open-minded and just accept the complicated situation.
3. You are Loyal and Good Listener.
Loyal people never fail to give constant attention to the same person. They are always there to listen to all the stories the other person has to stay. Toxic people find this very comforting. They are assured that they can always go back to you when things go wrong.
4. You are Compassionate and Understanding.
Compassionate people have high emotional intelligence. They try to understand what’s going on with other people’s mind. The good and the bad, they try to understand where the other person is coming from. These people genuinely try to help others no matter how toxic they are.
5. You are Generous and Helpful.
Generosity is not only measured by the gifts you give. This also includes the time and effort you are willing to give to another person. There is nothing wrong with being generous and helpful. It’s just that some people take advantage of our kindness.
6. You are not Judgemental and Perfectionist.
You accept people as they are. At this point, you do not really have high expectations and demands. You tolerate other people’s flaws. You do not judge people easily.
