Have you ever found yourself searching on google, how to tell if a guy likes me? or what do guys look for in a girl? etc. You are not alone—I have done these kinds of searches many times in the past. There are many sites that tell you five things to do to hold on to your guy or 10 things your date does to hint that he likes you. These have good intentions, but ultimately you need to listen to yourself, and what you feel. We can’t keep comparing people’s words or actions to these types of articles. Because who can live up to all of those standards? Even though we want a partner who is loyal, funny, a good listener, and attractive—basically the perfect partner—first we need a reality check!
I am not implying the perfect partner is not out there for you. Often, we feel like the right guy will complete us and help mold us into the person we want to be, so we wait around hoping he will sweep us off our feet. But, I want you to think about investing in yourself. What kind of woman do you want to be? Do you want to be successful, independent, compassionate, or confident? The more you take the time to reflect on yourself, the better person you will become—You will get closer and closer to becoming that perfect partner yourself.
As you go through life, trying to find your perfect partner and laying the foundation for your future–make sure to hold onto your values and find someone will make you incredibly happy and will acceptance you for the person you are. Don’t hold on to those instances when others didn’t give you the time of day, or respect. Do not let these moments allow you to believe that you aren’t beautiful, successful or fun enough to be around. Remind yourself that life is a journey and you are growing into the person you are meant to be.
So, that more women can benefit from these posts don’t forget to follow or share!
