One way to break out of it is by positive self-talk.
You can try to boost up your confidence in going back into the dating scene by motivating yourself.
Yet, if you don't get rid of this distrust toward men it will destroy your chance of finding someone new.
This distrust often shows up in online dating profiles when you say things like, "no head games" or "no dishonest men." When you write those things in your profile, you're broadcasting on a billboard that you've been hurt and that you're distrustful.
You'll scare away the men who have it together because they'll recognize your distrust immediately.
And most of the men who really do play head games or are dishonest haven't admitted to themselves that they possess these massive flaws, which makes it likely that they aren't going to stay away from you just because you ask them to in your profile.
After all, you are the only one stopping yourself from doing so.
Positive self-talk can help build up your confidence.
