’ ‘When someone says they aren’t ready to be in a relationship, they are about two months away from committing to someone else.’ ‘Establish a healthy relationship with alcohol/weed, whatever that means for you.’ ‘Backup your data.’ ‘Don’t waste time on people who aren’t interested in putting in time with you.
