5 Gut Feelings You Should Listen To And Never Ignore

If your conscious is talking than you should listen.

At least that's what they say. More than often, if you feel some type of way -- you shouldn't second guess those feelings. Your gut never lies, no matter how bad it hurts -- ever. Drake has a lyric that says, 'talking to myself, but I'm never listening'. Although we all love Drake, don't following suit. If you hear your conscious talking, always listed. Always. Not sure what is worth listening out for, well, according to Cosmopolitan everything -- but to give yourself a better idea, keep scrolling.

When you're with a guy and suddenly start feeling uncomfortable for any reason.

"Even if he didn't specifically tell you, "Oh, hello, I have a knife and want to use it for murdering purposes," if you have a feeling that something about him seems like he could be one of the killers on Scream Queens, just tell him you're really tired and need to head home. This is 100 percent better than waiting to see if your suspicions are correct and then having something shady happen."

That even though the guy you're dating is great, he's still not The Person, and it's OK to just end it.

"Plus, in my experience those relationships always get to a point where you finally start having major problems (like suddenly picking fights with them because you don't like them and it's making you so freaking mad because you just want them to be The One already!) and then decide to end it, so just skip the inevitable drama and save both of you some time."

That this Tinder guy is not worth meeting.

"Every time I've felt like, "Well, he's kind of boring, but he's not a total jerk and he seems sort of hot," and went on the date anyway, I just found out in person that he was exactly who I thought he was (and if anything, even worse). Even if he's perfectly nice, if you're not really psyched to meet him, it's a waste of time for both of you. Skip."

Not feeling sure if you should grab a condom or not.

"The answer to whether or not your gut is right on this one is always yes. Your gut is very wise."

When you think about breaking up with a guy, but then he does something sweet and you're like, "Maybe not?"

"OK, so he brought over your favorite cookies from that fancy place uptown that you usually only go to once a month after you get paid. Do you really want another month of him not responding to most of your texts, but then sometimes bringing you cookies you could totally buy yourself? No"

Do you find yourself questioning your conscious a lot?

Follow you gut. It won't lead you astray.

Heck yeah!!!! People are taught all the time that they shouldn't trust their gut but this is dead on. So what if your gut is wrong? Especially when you're feeling creeped out. Sure, he might not be plotting to murder you but if you're feeling creeped out you don't need that in your life!

I agree!!! @shannonl5 the littlest gut feeling could be speaking volumes and we would never know. I'm slowly, but surely learning to just listen, especially if I don't feel comfortable about a situation. Better safe than sorry!
