Get That Man Off a Pedestal

Bella's love for Edward borders on worship. When she can't be with him, she places herself in life-threatening situations, just so he will come to her rescue. That's not too healthy.

While we love our guys -- we also love ourselves and would never repeatedly put their value above our own. "If there is a huge power imbalance between the couple, the relationship is going to be very unhealthy," says Deacon. "Love works best if both halves of the couple have a healthy sense of their own value." If you or your guy are overly obsessed with one another, take a breath and reexamine the relationship. It's unhealthy -- and possibly dangerous -- to place so much of your own self-worth in the hand's of someone else. If your man's on a pedestal -- get him off and put yourself up there.
