"Men and women both need to understand this concept.
Women, if your man started dating you for no reason other than he found you attractive then you can bet money when that wears off (and it will) and you've not cultivated something deeper in the relationship then he will wander off to something "better". There's always someone better looking. Your looks may get you a man, but they will never keep a man. And a good man will take the time out to find out who you are, if you are worth investing in, and he will stay and be faithful and dedicated. Not because of what you look like, but because he invested in who you are and WANTS to be there.
There's nothing you can do to "keep" someone. They make a choice to invest and stay invested. They make a choice to be honest and faithful and put the time and effort into you because they desire to. And they desire to do so because they arrive at a place where they feel you are worth it. And they won't arrive there unless you too are investing and giving them a reason to make a choice to "stay". So if someone doesn't want to be there, there's nothing you can do to change that. And you can be the very best version of who you are, and they still not stay. It's not a reflection on who you are. It's most often a reflection of their inability to appreciate what you've offered them.
Let me tell you this too. A good man will cherish you. Any man can "love" you. But a man who values you and who you are will cherish you. ===================== cher·ish
protect and care for (someone) lovingly.
"he cared for me beyond measure and cherished me in his heart" =====================
And that is what you should be seeking in from your life partner.
Many blessings this Saturday." #stuff#dating#life#datingmemes#love#yas#canigetanamen#loyalty#singlegirls#lifememes#fitfam#vanfit#vanfitfam#lift#lifting#gym#fitness#singlegirl
