You need to know what you want in a man before you start looking. If you don’t know exactly what you want, how will you know when you find it?
What It Means:
Everyone has deal-breakers. Those things, or characteristics, that will forever prevent you from permanently settling down with someone. You need to identify what those are from the very beginning, so that you don’t waste your time and his, pursuing a relationship that has no hope of a future.
What are your deal-breakers? Cheating? Lying? Unwilling to travel? What if he doesn’t want to have children? It may be hurtful in the early stages of a relationship to break things off, but putting it off doesn’t make it any easier. In fact, the longer you wait, the harder it becomes.
Spend some time determining what you’re willing to be flexible on, and which things are absolute deal-breakers for you. Then start asking specific, pertinent questions early in a relationship, to help you determine if you’re sure you want to continue investing yourself and your time in it.
If you know what you want in a man, no one is saying that those real-life fairy tale moments don’t happen, because they do. You should just go into your
next encounter with realistic expectations. We are not saying that your prince isn’t out there, you just have to be able to clearly see him!
