Kimberly's Kounseling Korner by Kimberly Martin

Dear Kim,

I am a figure competitor and have had much trouble finding the right guy, if I am nice to guys in the gym for example they all take it the wrong way. Some are attractive but most are not, it seems that I fall for the bad guys which are very attractive. They are selfish, shallow and all they offer is a great body. How can I find the right guy, or at least a guy that can treat me good?


It seems you are in a pattern of picking the same type of guy. Maybe it's your comfort zone but a lot of people pick the same type over and over again even when that type is NOT good for them.
Also, you are allowing these guys to treat you the way they do. You're worth more than that and deserve better so you're probably gonna have to start looking for a different type of guy...maybe go for substance instead of model looks...make small changes in what you're looking for and I'll bet a different type of guy will emerge.
Good luck and hope this helps!

About the Author...

My name is Kimberly Aline Martin, but I go by the name Kim. I was born in Decatur, GA on November 1st, 1969. I've lived in Georgia my whole life and can't imagine living anywhere else. Well, maybe Hawaii...

I've been married to my best friend for over 13 years and we have two wonderful children, both boys, ages 5 and 12.
We now reside north of Atlanta and I am currently a stay at home mom.

Three things I live by:
I truly believe 'what doesn't kill you, makes you stronger'....every obstacle in life that is overcome makes you a stronger individual.
I also believe that everyone makes mistakes and those mistakes shouldn't be regretted, but embraced because they make you the person you become.
Lastly, be consistent-about everything in your life-and surround yourself with people that do the same.
