How to tell if you are dating or with the right man?
I know it’s hard sometimes, You feel like things are going well when you are together. However, sometimes he just doesn’t seem to be available on many levels, which has made you feel insecure. The feelings are usually in the pit of your stomach eating you up at night, sometimes to the point where you can’t even fall asleep.
Here are some things to watch out for, to tell if you are dating or with the right man.
First, is Emotionally Distant lately –
He always looks perturbed or pre-occupied with his thoughts, the tv, or better still his phone. The second that phone text message beeps, he drops whatever he is doing, and voila! He seems to not care about the conversations you have with him anymore. In other words, you feel that he is emotionally unavailable.
Next is the Physical
Physically – He is into his body more than yours.
Is he always at the gym working on his physique? I know your wondering does he even notice what I’m wearing today or that I got my hair cut, nails were done, eyelashes done, changed the color of my hair. Oh, and I hate to tell you, that many women change their hair color or do something drastic like chop of all the length if they feel insecure.
What about Financially -$-
If he is always short on change, or perhaps he is not able to pay his bills for the month and is constantly begging to borrow or asking for money from you, this is a bit of a disappointment as well. You are not his financial bank loan officer or his mom. Take notice of how many times recently you have been dreading his question of if he can borrow money from you even if it’s only five bucks here or there, just until he gets paid.
Please ask yourself, Has he paid you back the other little amounts he has borrowed from you? If he hasn’t why not? Is it because you let that slide for fear of losing him? Wake up please. that is usually a huge red flag.
Is it Time to have “The Chat”
Am I Right?
Listen to your heart to make the right decision for yourself.
Most importantly- please Respect yourself first.
Do some Self -Care checking in
Would my mom or sister act this way or put up with all of the above-mentioned red flags?
How would they react? How would you want your daughter to react? or perhaps your Sister?
How do I feel when I am with him? Loved and respected?
Like a Princess? Yes, you deserve to be treated like a Princess! not with all the monetary things, but by the way in which he treats you with kindness and respect and compassion and genuine interest and involvement in your life. That’s all.
Are you being too needy? When is the last time you went out with your girlfriends and just hung out? Be a little mysterious, be busy, don’t be available.
Here is why.
Ladies, if you have to ask a man, “so what are we?” or “where is this relationship going?” The answer is nowhere. Men by nature are hunters and go for what they want. If he wanted you to be his wife, he would have proposed. If he wanted you to be his lady, he would’ve asked you. Men go hard for what they truly want. If he is not going hard for you, you are not what he wants.
