Oprah Winfrey– “If a man wants you, nothing can keep him

away. If he doesn’t want you, nothing can make him stay. Stop

making excuses for a man and his behavior. Allow your intuition

(or spirit) to save you from heartache.”

—“Stop trying to change yourself for a

relationship that’s not meant to be.”

Oprah Winfrey– “Slower is better. Never live your life for a man

before you find what makes you truly happy.”

Oprah Winfrey– “If you feel like he is stringing you along, then

he probably is. Don’t stay because you think ‘it will get better.’

You’ll be mad at yourself a year later for staying when things are

not better.”

Oprah Winfrey– “Avoid men who’ve got a bunch of children by

a bunch of different women. He didn’t marry them when he got

them pregnant, why would he treat you any differently?”

Oprah Winfrey– “Maintain boundaries in how a guy treats you.

If something bothers you, speak up.”

Oprah Winfrey– “You cannot change a man’s behavior. Change

comes from within.”

Oprah Winfrey– “He is a man; nothing more, nothing less.”

Oprah Winfrey– “Never let a man define who you are.”

Oprah Winfrey– “Never borrow someone else’s man. If he

cheated with you, he’ll cheat on you.”

Oprah Winfrey– “A man will only treat you the way you allow

him to treat you.”

Oprah Winfrey– “All men are NOT dogs.”

Oprah Winfrey– “You should not be the one doing all the

bending–compromise is a two-way street.”

Oprah Winfrey– “If a relationship ends because the man was not

treating you as you deserve then heck no, you can’t ‘be friends.’

A friend wouldn’t mistreat a friend. Don’t settle.”

Oprah Winfrey– “The only person you can control in a

relationship is you.”

Oprah Winfrey– “Always have your own set of friends separate

from his.”

Oprah Winfrey– “Never let a man know everything. He will use

it against you later.”

Oprah Winfrey– “Don’t ever make him feel he is more important

than you are, even if he has more education or a better job.”

Oprah Winfrey– “Do not make him into a quasi-god.”
