I feel compelled to write the following. Again, just some food for thought.
If I may blatantly state: Ladies... men will always be men and they will never change "just because you would like them to."
I do not say that to sound rude or overconfident perhaps in the stance that I am taking. But, can we be real?
And men, I know it is probably frustrating, perhaps annoying, to constantly feel as though women are trying to mold you, shape you into the man she thinks you "ought to be." In retrospect, that alone undoubtedly causes men to withdraw.
Ladies, it's true. Stop wasting your precious, God-given time on trying to make a man into the man you think he ought to be. It's natural that us girls wish to nurture others. But there's a fine line between wanting to nourish a man and meet his needs versus creating unrealistic expectations for that 'special someone' to live up to.
Instead of trying to change the one you're with, why not just love him/her for who they are? Flaws and all.
And if it does not work, that's when you move on. You don't spend another moment waiting around fighting for that man to live up to your own expectations, because that's a fight you'll lose every time. You move on with confidence in knowing that "he's" out there waiting to find you too.
This is when the best relationships will arise: the long-lasting, forever, happily ever-after kind. When neither partner is expecting of another to live beyond their means. Let us love one another honestly, completely, and feel all there is to feel in our journey of finding the one you love and the one who will love you in return.
Case in point being, to both men and women out there, don't ever settle for less than what you know you humbly deserve.
We all deserve something beautiful. Wait for the one who says, "I love you" and means it... with every last part of their being.
