Dating a girl with a bad laugh
If you do choose to pursue her, then next thing you must understand is that the process won’t be easy or always pleasant.
Going after a woman who is already attached comes with a few built-in problems.
But so is the desire to be victorious, to prove that you’re better, stronger, or more attractive, to demonstrate your ability to subvert an existing relationship for your own validation.
These aren’t fun feelings to acknowledge, but they’re crucial to recognize because they’re inherent to the male experience.
All practical considerations aside, if a girl is in a relationship that is unhealthy, abusive or otherwise toxic, you shouldn’t shed any tears about breaking it up.
You should, however, think long and hard about the implications of inserting yourself into a toxic relationship (and dating someone who would enter one).
This might be rational or irrational, likely or unlikely — but the fear just might linger.
There’s one overriding condition that, in our book, generally gives you carte blanche to pursue a girl no matter her circumstances.
If you feel that you must be with this person, and — this is essential — the feeling is clearly mutual (that is, she feels about you the way you feel about her, and you both want to be together), then you can and should go for it.
At the end of the day, you probably can’t “save” her, so check any part of you that wants to.
All you can do is be a supportive, caring friend, let her know that you’re interested, and hope she chooses you.
If you don’t — if there isn’t anything particularly outstanding about this person — then you already have a reason to respect her circumstances and move on.
