Be honest. You develop a slight shudder every time you hear the term “dating” thrown around. You know that the whole thing is just a game designed to see how much emotional torment and manipulation people can take. And you’re just sick and tired of it. You’re tired of playing games. You’re tired of dating men who are just interested in having their fun with you and then leaving you out to dry. You want to be with someone who is serious; because you are a serious person. You are serious about finding love. And you really don’t want to be wasting any more time or energy on dating someone who isn’t going to take you seriously.
You don’t want to keep on wasting your time on a guy who is just going to play the game with you; you want to spend your time with a man who is going to do what it takes to earn your love. You want someone who is really going to put in the effort to make sure that you are convinced of his authenticity and realness. This is the secret to dating, if you don’t already know it yet: if you really want to find someone to spend the rest of your life with, it’s more than just a matter of going on a few dates and getting to know one another. Sustainable love is always about making the conscious effort tot get closer to each other on a constant basis.
It might not sound all too flashy. It might sound a little old-school. But it’s the truth. That’s what love is really made of. That’s what love is supposed to look like. That’s the kind of love that lasts. What exactly does it men to have a man who courts you; a man works hard to earn your love? It’s essentially when a guy dates you; but he is able to transcend it. He really dates you with a purpose. He dates you with serious intention. He dates you with real direction. He knows what he wants with you; and he knows what it is exactly he’s looking for. And while that can sound so serious and intimidating, you don’t really have to panic.
Remember that ultimately, love and relationships are supposed to be fun and happy. They are always supposed to have environments of joy and brightness. But underneath all of that, you need to be able to build a solid foundation of intimacy, passion, and compatibility with one another. It’s true that relationships aren’t just about love and luck. You need a whole lot of wisdom and closeness. You really need to maintain a good sense of self-awareness so that you aren’t blind to the problems that are actually plaguing your reality. You have to make sure that you aren’t blinding yourselves to the issues that you need to be addressing as a couple in your relationship.
You both need to make sure that you understand how difficult things are going to be for the both of you; and you both need to be confident enough in your love to pull you through these tumultuous times. At the core of it all, you need to have a solid foundation of friendship. You need to be able to establish a kind of bond with one another that you can build on the deeper you get into your relationship. You are going to need that bond because it’s that bond that is going to keep of you together even when the world is trying to break you apart.
It’s that closeness that you have with one another that will prepare you to face all of the challenges that will come your way together. It’s really that foundation of closeness that will strengthen your relationship through whatever hurdles you might have to overcome. So that’s why it’s important that you don’t necessarily pressure yourself into rushing through the various parts of your relationship. You don’t always have to be living life in the fast lane. You have to make sure that you are taking things as slowly and as naturally as possible. Do what feels right to the both of you.
The less pressure you place on yourselves, the less pressure you place on your relationship as a whole. And you always want to make sure that you don’t cultivate a high-pressure environment in your relationship. You want to make sure that you aren’t stressing yourselves out. And that all starts with approaching things the right way. So date with a purpose. Don’t be doing it casually or without any direction in mind. Have a clear vision of what you want so that you know exactly where you’re headed. And lastly, enjoy the ride. There’s nothing more beautiful than two people falling in love. And you don’t want to take that experience for granted.
