It’s a New Year! And with it come goals to be even better in life and in love. However, here’s one big, bold relationship truth: If you bring the same old mindset and misconceptions about relationships into this “new” season, then you won’t have different results.
These myths include;
Men Are Intimidated By Your Success and Independence
The real truth is that men are looking for a partner in love and not a “boss.” The “right man” for you is not going to be afraid of you or intimidated by you. He’ll appreciate all that you have to offer and look forward to partnering with you.
Having Standards and Expectations Will Drive Men Away
It’s very possible that it wasn’t your high standards per say that turned him off, but your delivery. If stating your standards comes with a defensive nature and attitude, then yes, it can be a turn-off. However, if it’s simply you just discussing your desires, then men who are on the same page as you (and that is the key) won’t run at the first mention of what you will and won’t tolerate.
There Are No Good Men Left out There
There are plenty of good men out there. And plenty of men that are committing and getting married. So don’t let a string of bad dates or the opinions of your friends cause you to lose faith that your partner is out there somewhere.
Your Husband Is Only Driven By Sex
Sex for men is an expression of love and it keeps them connected to you. And if you start thinking about it in those terms, then perhaps you’ll want to connect with them even more!
Your Man Wants You to Be Perfect
Stop putting so much pressure on yourself to be perfect in every area and give yourself some leeway. Your attitude will have a jump in the right direction the minute you do.
Men Are Emotionless
Men have emotions just like women do, but it’s the expression of those feelings that might be different. This isn’t about good and bad, it’s just that he may handle and show his emotions differently.
Men Don’t Care About Your Needs
You can’t keep getting frustrated with him over things that you’ve never expressed. Communicate early and often and don’t leave him guessing while you’re just mad.
