2. You need to be rescued.
You got dumped and your heart is broken. Maybe your partner or your divorce left you scrambling for a place to live and you don’t know how you’ll get by. You’re emotionally and financially vulnerable, and oh, look—right on cue, here comes someone to save the day!
This is a time to be extremely cautious and maybe give yourself some tough love. Your life, to be frank, is kind of a mess right now. Why would someone who’s really got their life together want to get enmeshed with me right now? Why is he investing in taking on a charity case he just met? If he’s not looking for someone to take advantage of, at the very least he may exhibit poor judgment.
