If we are being honest, the criteria we had for men when we were younger was that they looked good.
In high school, we all wanted to be with the popular, athletic guy who was attractive to everyone.
Now that we have grown up, we can’t be so superficial.
Naturally, you need to be attracted to the man you’re in a relationship with.
However, when looking for the right man, the way he looks should be the least important thing.
A lot of other elements are much more important when you want to share your life with a man.
You could be with the most handsome man on the planet, but what good is that if he doesn’t treat you right?
How can his looks contribute to having a healthy and happy relationship?
Maybe you just want to stare at him and admire how good he looks, but is that all you’ll do for the rest of your life?
He could have a perfect jawline, a manly beard, broad shoulders, and white teeth, but will those things ever make you happy?
Will those things give you the patience and understanding you need? Can they make you feel safe and love you for the person you are?
You need to understand that someone’s physical appearance can’t compensate for the things that are really important.
His looks might make you feel butterflies in your stomach, and other women could envy you, but it won’t make you happy.
A man has to be a lot more than just a pretty face and a nice body to make a woman happy in a relationship.
This is why we need to stop glorifying guys who work on themselves only by working on their muscles in the gym.
It doesn’t mean that there’s something wrong with being physically active and into sports.
Sure, when something is good for your health, you should pursue it.
Still, you have to agree that other things are much more important when you’re searching for a man you want to have a relationship with.
How about when you’re looking for the person you’ll spend the rest of your life with?
Is it really important how they look now if you plan to grow old with them?
Let’s forget about the guys who are all about looks and put the spotlight on those who know how to love and respect women.
There are men with manners and behavior that would leave you breathless.
Those men treat women right, and there’s more to them than what you can see on the outside.
Every woman deserves a man who will hold the door for her. A man who won’t ever forget anniversaries and birthdays.
You deserve a man who will bring you flowers and do whatever it takes to make you smile.
This type of man wouldn’t ever insult or abuse a woman. Breaking your heart is something he would never do because it would break his own.
Start paying more attention to those guys who aren’t always in the spotlight.
Notice those who don’t show off and aren’t as loud as others who need to stand out in the crowd.
A man like that will never only see you as a physical object. He will be more interested in your mind and heart than in the way you look.
This is a man who would never take advantage of a woman or make her feel bad about herself.
You won’t be just another girl to a man like this, and he will appreciate and cherish you.
He will recognize your worth and make you feel special because you will be special to him.
Losing you would be the worst thing that could happen to him, so he’ll fight to keep you around.
You won’t ever feel like you’re not good enough for him because he’ll make sure that you know how amazing you really are.
He will love you with all your flaws because he knows that they are a part of who you are.
A man like that will show you so much love and respect that you’ll learn to love and respect yourself as well.
Isn’t that what true love is supposed to look like?
If you want to spend the rest of your life with someone, your looks and his will slowly disappear.
You will grow old, and your bodies and faces will change.
If you fall for him because of his good looks, will you be able to love him once they are gone?
A gentle heart and a kind soul don’t fade away over time. So, that is what you should look for in a man, not abs and muscles.
If he has good manners and respects you, it won’t disappear as you grow old together.
You will never have to regret choosing him because he’ll keep doing whatever it takes to make you happy.
When you’re looking for your forever person, you can’t only look at what’s on the surface.
The things that truly matter are under the surface, so you can’t just focus on the exterior.
You deserve to feel like a lady, and only a true gentleman can make you feel that way.
He will treat you the way you deserve, and you’ll know that you’re a priority to him.
He’s the kind of man who will work on improving himself on the inside, not only on the outside.
A man like that will do everything in his power to make your relationship work. It won’t be a one-sided relationship like the ones you probably had before.
He will put as much effort into the relationship as you do, and he’ll make you feel like a princess.
Don’t you deserve to have that? You do, and you will, you just need to stop paying so much attention to guys who are only good-looking.
Respect and manners are attractive, and a guy who only looks good will never be as attractive as one who has these traits.
You need a man who’ll treat you well, not just look good.
