Dating can be fun and when you’re in the dating pool, you should always keep in mind that the guys you hook up with will never be anything more than just that.
Of course, not all hook-ups are bad. The memories of some will make you cringe but I’m sure most were fun and there was few that taught you a thing or two. When you’re dating someone and you’re in love, it’s often easy to confuse yourself by thinking the man you’re with is perfect but there’s actually a vast difference between the guy you date and the man you marry.
The guy you date: He worries over what you have to offer him and adores you only if you give him your full attention. It also helps that you’re attractive and share a few common interests with him.
The man you marry: This man will love you for who you are. Your every wonder and flaw. He thinks about you before himself and spends his time building a better life for the both of you as a couple. He will understand you better than anybody else and hopes that he will always be a good husband to you.
The guy you date: Gets jealous and possessive. This can be cute in the beginning of a relationship but after a while it will be exhausting and time-consuming. You don’t want to spend the rest of your life with someone who is quick to mistrust you.
The man you marry: He trusts you and the decisions you make. He is patient and will always keep an open mind when the both of you are talking about something important. This man will consider your feelings and thoughts before irrationally reacting.
The guy you date: He will always think that he can do better. Some guys are just boys on the inside. Yes, all men will look but if your man is following half-naked girls on Instagram, you can bet your a** that he is definitely not marriage material. This guy has to feed his boyish needs, which comes before respecting your feelings.
The man you marry: He only has eyes for you and yes, he may look if a pretty lady walks past but you know that no one could ever be more beautiful to him than you. He makes you feel good without complimenting you 24/7 but by respecting you for the woman that you are. No half-naked blonde in a thong could compete with you because to him, you are indeed perfect.
The guy you date: He shows you how much he can spend. Look at his fancy this and fancy that.
The man you marry: He has a financial plan that he ruthlessly follows in order to save for both your future. He will spoil you when he wants but he also knows how to manage money, so that you can both lead a comfortable life for as long as you’re together.
The guy you date: He is emotionally unavailable and hates having any kind of “talks”. If it has got to do with talking about how the relationship could flourish or anything that is emotion-related, he will shy away.
The man you marry: He will always want to be better and do things that could benefit the relationship he has with you. He will listen to your struggles and worries, and never fails to fix it or try his best at least. This is the man that doesn’t love you selfishly but instead loves you selflessly and with kindness.
