Are you reducing your chances of meeting him by having too many stipulations? When you’re a teenager, you have this ideology of what Mr. Right will look like, what kind of car he will drive, etc. Well as you mature, you begin to prioritize and rationalize these same expectations of perfection. You come to learn that he may not be 6’4”, light with hazel eyes and driving the Maybach Benz. If you’re seeking true love, stability and a solid foundation, you have to make sound and mature choices.
As women, it’s difficult to dismiss our idea of what we’ve always wanted, even if we know it’s outside of the realm of reality. It’s almost as if we’ve conformed to what society says a “Successful couple” looks like, but that doesn’t create happy or lasting relationships. It doesn’t matter what someone else thinks, as long as he makes you happy.
Does the complexion of someone, the car they drive or the job they hold define their character? How can you ever be sure of what your type is, if you have tunnel vision? Sure, we all want this picture perfect mate, but that’s just not reality. I”m not suggesting that you have to settle for someone you don’t want, but to simply open your mind. Until you expand your limited mindset, you may just find yourself single a little longer. Standards and stipulations are not the same thing, and it’s up to you to decide what’s important to you, true happiness or only what it looks like from the outside.
Open your mind to the endless possibilities and increase your odds!
