Does he Show you That he Loves You

We have often heard it said that the most interesting story is the one where the author show rather than tell the reader what is happen. You can apply this same concept to your relationship. Your relationship can become so much more meaningful when he  not only tells you that he loves you but shows you that he does.

Words without action are often meaningless words. If he tells you that he loves you yet acts differently do not believe his words but rather his actions. How a man treats you is exactly how he feels about you. Sometimes women are enthralled by the words and make excuses for the actions.

It may be a hard pill to swallow but listen to his truth, take note of the feelings that he is expressing by his actions and decide if he is showing you enough love.

Does he Meet Your Expectations

Does the man you are dating have the attributes that you are seeking in a partner. Is he considerate or affectionate and does he seem trustworthy. Does he have a plan or a vision   for the future. Is he the type who is just  drifter, living for the moment with no thought about tomorrow….yes those types exist.

Is he someone who respects women or does he see women as an acquisition and boasts about his past conquests. Do you share the same values or interests. Do you find him easy to talk to and does he engage in meaningful conversations?

Sometimes at the start of a relationship sparks will fly and fires may be ignited but if you are not compatible it burns out quickly and the fire dies. So to save yourself heartache evaluate the facts in front of you and decide if he is someone you want to take a chance with.

Anecdote of the Week

Blurred Vision

A businessman was highly critical of his competitors’ storefront windows. “Why, they are the dirtiest windows in town,” he claimed. Fellow business people grew tired of the man’s continual criticism and nitpicking comments about the windows. One day over coffee, the businessman carried the subject just too far. Before leaving, a fellow store owner suggested the man get his own windows washed. He followed the advice, and the next day at coffee, he exclaimed, “I can’t believe it. As soon as I washed my windows, my competitor must have cleaned his too. You should see them shine.”

How Well do You Know Him? Image result for free clipart images of women 

Sometime women will get in  serious relationships without know much about the men. This can leave a woman at a disadvantage because sometimes the man is either married or he is involved in another relationship.

Before you get too deeply involved with him get to know as much about him as you possibly can. Your life and your future is not something that you should take chances with. Find out where he lives and what kind of person he is in his community, does he have a bad reputation or is he a respectful citizen. When starting a relationship take it, get to know something about him and then decide if this is the person you want to invest your time and energy in.

Remember that all that glitters is not gold and it is better to play it safe rather than end up being sorry and hurt.

What a Woman Wants From Her Man

What a woman often wants most from a relationship is to have a man who loves, respect, and appreciates her. She wants a man who makes her feel special; one who thinks about her feelings and not just his own.

A woman wants a man who will not lie to her or give her a reason to feel jealous. She needs to be able to trust him with her heart. She wants someone who is serious about her and their relationship and is willing to put in as much effort to make it work as she does. She wants a man who will commit to her and  who will be there for her when she needs him.

Be Confident

As a woman you may find that you have to work twice as hard as your male counterpart to get recognition. There will be doubters, those who believe that you will never succeed.Stay confident and feed your mind with positive thought. When others tell you that you can’t know that you can. Here is a friendly reminder from the poet.

Somebody said that it couldn’t be done
      But he with a chuckle replied
That “maybe it couldn’t,” but he would be one
      Who wouldn’t say so till he’d tried.
So he buckled right in with the trace of a grin
      On his face. If he worried he hid it.
He started to sing as he tackled the thing
      That couldn’t be done, and he did it!

Somebody scoffed: “Oh, you’ll never do that;
      At least no one ever has done it;”
But he took off his coat and he took off his hat
      And the first thing we knew he’d begun it.
With a lift of his chin and a bit of a grin,
      Without any doubting or quiddit,
He started to sing as he tackled the thing
      That couldn’t be done, and he did it.
 
There are thousands to tell you it cannot be done,
      There are thousands to prophesy failure,
There are thousands to point out to you one by one,
      The dangers that wait to assail you.
But just buckle in with a bit of a grin,
      Just take off your coat and go to it;
Just start in to sing as you tackle the thing
      That “cannot be done,” and you’ll do it

Empowering Women

Equal rights and justice for all should include equal rights for women. For centuries women have been treated like second class citizens. Things have changed along the years, but the change so far is not enough and women still have to work twice as hard as their male counterparts to get ahead in life.

The double standard is evident all around us. It is easier for society to forgive a man for the mistakes he makes than for them to forgive a woman. Just take a brief glimpse at relationships for example; a man can have multiple partners and it is accepted as being okay – he is just being a man. On the other hand should a woman do the same thing she is considered a whore.

The double standard must stop what is good for the goose is good for the gander. It is time to start taking women seriously and treat us with the respect we deserve.
