Our intuition serves as a silent guide that whispers warnings about red flags and gives us a nagging sense of unease whenever something is amiss.

TikToker Catie (@catiechats) is talking about how her decision to ignore her gut instincts led to a profound lesson about the importance of listening to her inner voice.

One time, she went on a date with a guy who she really didn’t want to go out with in the first place. She had felt that she needed to be more open-minded, so she decided to give the guy a chance.

During the date, she noticed that he seemed to have his guard up. He also spent the first half of the date criticizing her for being fake.

However, she believed that she had shown up to the date as her authentic self. She had always considered herself to be a very transparent person, whether in person or on social media, so she was surprised to hear about his impression of her.

They ended up getting into a whole discussion about the parts of themselves that people tended to misinterpret or make uninformed judgments toward.

The date turned out to be really interesting, although she couldn’t get over his rudeness. It also taught her a few lessons that she will continue to apply to her life in the future.

First, she realized that it’s important to trust your gut. Her gut had been telling her that she and the guy wouldn’t have been a good match, so she should’ve listened to it and said no to the date at the beginning.

Secondly, always find something to learn from when on a date because the other person can teach you a lot about yourself.
