“If someone wants you, nothing will keep them away”

"If someone wants you, nothing can keep them away. If they don’t want you, nothing can make them stay” was cited in print in 2004 and is of unknown authorship. Several numbered relationship rules followed this first one. “When someone wants you, nothing will keep them away” is a slight variation.

The saying has become popular and has also described employment situations.

We should remind each other of this list when applicable (even if not single, good advice in general and pass it along to your single friends! It is good advice!) This advice is applicable to anyone of either sex.

1. If someone wants you, nothing can keep them away. If they don’t want you, nothing can make them stay.
