B - Be Clear from the Start

Miscommunication is one of the leading causes of relationship discord. Suppose you want a functional and healthy relationship, set clear expectations from the onset. Be upfront about your expectations, your deal-breakers, and your values. This transparency will not only save you time, but it will also give your partner an understanding of what your priorities are. By starting with honesty from the beginning, you stand the best chance of developing a strong, functional relationship.


A - Affirm Your Boundaries

The term 'ghosting' refers to the sudden and unexpected cessation of communication. This lack of communication is stressful for the person left behind and can lead to feelings of anxiety and confusion. Therefore, it's essential to define and maintain your boundaries in a relationship. Be honest about what you want from your partner and what's unacceptable. When you have set the boundaries, stick to them. If your partner can't respect your boundaries, it may be time to cut your losses and move on.


C - Communicate Often and Clearly

Communication is the lifeblood of any relationship. It keeps things moving forward and ensures that you and your partner are on the same page. If you're not sure what's going on, it's time to ask. Avoid making assumptions or jumping to conclusions because doing so can lead to misunderstandings. Spend quality time talking to your partner about your hopes, dreams, and desires. Permit and encourage your partner to do the same. This can help you both understand each other better and strengthen your bond.


O - Own Your Emotions

Breadcrumbing is one of the most sinister types of dating. It happens when someone strings you along, just enough to keep you interested and never enough to take it to the next level. It's important to own your emotions and address them head-on. Ask yourself what you want from your relationship and be honest with yourself about your feelings. If you feel like your partner is breadcrumbing you, it's better to confront them than to endure the pain of the situation.

N - Never Settle

Always remember that you deserve happiness and fulfillment in your relationships. If you're not getting what you want or need from your partner, don't stay in the relationship hoping things will change. Take control of your destiny and move on. Give yourself time to feel the pain of the loss, but also remember that life is always full of opportunities. Keep searching until you find someone who values and respects you and can give you what you need.


The world of dating can be a minefield of mixed messages, confusion, and heartache. But the solution lies in embracing uncertainty and using BACON to deal with dysfunctional dating. Remember, always be clear from the start, affirm your boundaries, communicate often and clearly, own your emotions, and never settle.


As Aristotle rightly said, "Happiness depends upon ourselves." Take control of your happiness by using these tips and finding fulfillment in your dating life. So, take a step forward today, and enjoy the journey.
