Dating is a minefield. I’ve been in situations where I thought that I’d found my dream partner, but then they ended up running away at the first sign of trouble. Despite that, I knew that when the right person came along, they wouldn’t be so easily frightened.
The same goes for you too. If someone runs away, then that just means that they were never right for you to begin with. So, here are 8 things that could never scare away the right guy.
Fighting with anyone is a horrible experience, especially if that person is your significant other. Although it’s something that you’d probably like to avoid, arguments will happen. When you spend so much time with another person, you’re bound to disagree with someone. That can be a terrifying thought for some people, but if he’s the right guy, he’ll understand.
In your younger years, dating was mostly for fun. As you get older, however, it starts to become more about finding a life partner. Once we reach a certain headspace, we can no longer afford to waste our time on people who are just playing games. When you find the perfect guy, he’s going to want to commit just as much as you do.
3. Your Family
Everyone in the world has some family issues. Likewise, not everyone is going to like your family. Nonetheless, that shouldn’t be a deal-breaker for your partner. Whether he likes them or not, he should be able to accept that they will be a part of his life now. Along with that, he should still do his best to get along with them.
4. Your Friends
Along with family, your friends are also one of the most important aspects of your life. They’re the people that you see most often, as well as being the people who will pick up the pieces if your heart gets broken. Having friends who are a big part of your life, protective, or just not his cup of tea shouldn’t be an issue for him.
You are a human being and human beings have messy emotions. You cry or scream, you get happy or scared. All those things are a part of what it means to be alive. So, if he runs away and the first tear you shed or the first time you get angry, he’s not the man for you.
6. Your Responsibilities
There are always going to be things in life that you need to take care of. Perhaps you work, study, volunteer, or have other responsibilities that require your attention. Although those things may scare away potential partners, it won’t if you’re with the right guy. He won’t mind sharing his time with you and will support you in all your endeavors.
7. A Slow Pace
There is no guideline for how quickly relationships should move forward. Some people will sleep together on the first date, others after a few months. Likewise, some people will get married almost immediately while others will wait for decades. If you want to move slower, that shouldn’t bother him. A guy that cares about you enough will be willing to wait until you’re ready.
8. Your Expectations
Never let anyone tell you that you need to lower your expectations. You’re allowed to be picky and to know what you want, especially when it comes to relationships. When you finally find the right man for you, he’s not going to judge you for those things. Only an insecure man would want to be with an insecure woman.
Trust me, when you find him, you’ll know that he’s the one for you. He will be the man who’s strong enough to stay with you through everything. Unlike other guys, he won’t be scared away by these things. On the contrary, he’s going to love you so much that they would never bother him. They are a part of what it means to be with you, and being with you will be all that’s important to him.
