Starting a business can take a considerable investment. Quitting your job to work on your passion might force you into lower paid work.Even if failure doesn’t cost you anything, it can still bruise your ego.
I believe there is merit in actively finding the realistic worst case scenario.First we were all complaining about being ghosted, but now everyone is talking about breadcrumbing, the dating tactic where someone strings you along instead of either fully committing to ~talking~ or else cutting the cord entirely.Let's get one thing straight: being upfront and honest about your intentions with someone is by far the best policy when it comes to dating.If you are both dating (non-committed) and clear of your intentions and you aren't sure it's going to go anywhere with the people you are casually dating, it's OK to say "hi" now and then as perhaps you just want to keep things warm in case you both are in a different place."Of course, it's still a good idea to keep the people you're "talking to" in the loop about how much — or little — you're into them.
Nonetheless, here are five scenarios in which it's OK (though perhaps not preferable) to give someone the breadcrumbing treatment.I understand that breadcrumbing someone can be fun (even if just for the ego boost), but it's not fair to treat people like they're disposable and ignore their feelings.
