If you’ve had a constant stream of bad guys or girls in your life it can be easy to begin to generalise and assume every man or woman is a terrible person. Clearly this attitude is not going to allow you to move on into a new relationship. To ditch this relationship baggage think about the positive relationships you’ve had with either men or women.
You can choose from a variety of people, from past friends, to relatives and maybe even some exes. Reminding yourself that the opposite sex are not all bad may help you to reach a new, more positive attitude that will help you form new relationships.
