Three Miami Men You Should Never, Ever Date
3. Mr. Potential
Perhaps the most dangerous species of them all, Mr. Potential talks a good talk -- and he looks damn good doing it. He has all these plans for the future, and of course, you're included. He's going to have this high-level position, live in this chi-chi area, and help these kids in Guatemala. The guy is Jesus Christ with a paid job!
Naturally, you begin to place him on a pedestal. His talk is so good, you even begin to think he's better than you and that you should be honored to be around him. Without even realizing it, you're falling in love with the future him and not the real, present-day him who is right in front of you at the moment.
As the relationship continues, time after time he falls short of his promises. And truthfully, the disappointment he causes is partly your fault because you believed his words rather than his actions. Like mama Maya Angelou says, "The first time people show you who they are, believe them."
Yes, Mr. Potential has potential. But who knows how long it will take until he fully blossoms -- if he ever does. Are you willing to wait?
