Most Helpful Girl
I am currently in this situation. Some of my friends really don't like the guy I am dating right now because of some things they have heard about him, erego his "reputation" is negative. But I'm an adult and I form my opinions on my own, so I have chosen to keep seeing him despite these things. When I'm with him, I only see good things, so I want to see where it goes.
That's not to say that you should completely discount what other people say - I have kept all of it in mind and I value people giving me those "warnings", but I also believe that in order to judge someone, we must judge them for ourselves and not based on what we are told or what their reputation might be. However, it never hurts to proceed with caution and protect your heart.
Yes, people tell the truth, but people also lie, so you never know whether a reputation is correct or not, which is why it's important to make our own opinions on someone.1THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE
