"Listen to that little spidey sense, you know, where something just isn't settling right. That is an innate part of our being, those red flags."
"Rejection is protection. If they reject you or ghost you, then they're not meant for you. So they're leaving you free to seek somebody else who is a better match."
"There are enough fish in the sea, you can put that fish back in the pond and go and get your rod back out and go fishing again."
"Just make sure that you stay safe and that you see them for who they really are, not just who they're putting out there, but really have that level of discernment."
