Host Thoughts on Season Four Episode Fourteen

Get to know yourself and what you like, don’t like, and don’t want. Listen to your gut and don’t be afraid to stand up and say no. You don’t have to be nice about it. You don’t have to explain anything. Be clear and don’t leave things up for interpretation. Don’t be afraid to block/remove someone from your life if they show they can’t respect your boundaries. A small violation of your boundaries is a red flag because it will lead to bigger violations. Dating apps can be a great way to establish boundaries initially and weed someone out who can’t even respect the smallest of boundaries. Remember, being alone is much better than being with someone who invades your bubble. Also, it is impossible to set boundaries without also setting consequences.

It boils down to, once again, honesty and transparency.
