When it comes to dating or being in a relationship, for some reason a lot of us settle. Settling in love should never be an option.
Don’t be in too much of a rush to just be in a relationship. Don’t waste your time with people who aren’t going to be putting effort into things. Don’t jump into something for the sake of no longer being single. Love doesn’t work that way.
Don’t get me wrong, no one is perfect and no matter who you end up with is going to have their own flaws, but finding the right person is worth the wait. Below I am going to go over some of the things you should look for in potential partners. If someone does not offer you all of these things they are not worth your time.
Things People Who Actually Deserve To Be With You Will Do:
1. They help you to forget your past.
Sometimes we need someone to help us overcome our problems from the past. This person doesn’t care what you’ve been through he or she is there for you in all the best ways. You are able to heal and overcome all that you have faced in the past.
2. They comfort you in many different ways.
They are there for you in all the ways that matter. When you need someone to comfort you they are right by your side. When you are with this person you feel stronger.
3. They respect you and your boundaries.
We all deserve respect. If they are willing to go above and beyond to show you the respect you deserve, they are keepers. They don’t cross your boundaries and would never push you into something you were not comfortable with.
4. They change your definition of love.
They make you feel differently about love. The way you think about love is never going to be how it really is. They make you feel as if you are truly living out that magical fairytale that was not achievable.
5. They do not make you confused about their feelings.
They know what they want and don’t beat around the bush. You don’t have to guess whether or not they’re interested in you. They put everything on the table and if you are interested then you make the next move.
6. They push you to be the best version of yourself.
They want you to be the best you that you can be. They take care of you and help you to achieve all of your goals and dreams. They push you, but not in a bad way.
7. They treat you like a valued best friend right off the bat.
They don’t treat you like an option. They are kind and caring towards you from the very beginning. You instantly connect.
8. They listen to you when you speak.
They don’t pretend to be listening they really are listening. The things you have to say matter to them. Your opinion and your views make a difference in their life.
9. They do not contradict themselves.
They say what they mean and mean what they say. You will not catch them in any lies or setting themselves up to fail. They know their limits.
