Dont Settle!

Ladies, Don’t “Settle”.

     For the longest time, I’ve been unable to grasp one of the mysteries of the universe: Why do so many great girls date so many losers? Now hold on a second, just bear with me. I’ve seen a ton of relationships come and go. I’ve seen a ton of heartbreak, and I’ve seen a ton of girls ask a ton of questions after a failed dating experience: Why didn’t he change? Was it my fault? Was it something I did? Was it something I said? Am I pretty enough? Is there something wrong with me? Did he even like me? Why? Why did this happen?

     I don’t pretend to have all the answers, because I don’t, but what I do have is insight. I have insight because I experienced what I’m going to call a “seventeen year girl drought.” For the first seventeen years of my life, I had ONE relationship that lasted for a whopping TWO weeks, after which I proceeded to fail miserably in the dating department until this past summer where I met the most wonderful girl on the planet. I’ve never felt more blessed. But that’s beside the point. The point is that in those seventeen years, I’ve noticed a recurring pattern in all these failed relationships: the girl believes she can change the guy. Too often, girls fall into the trap of thinking the guy they date has potential and will become everything SHE wants HIM to become. I’m here to tell all you ladies to stop doing that. Stop settling for jerks.

     I’ve been blessed with a great father who has provided an excellent example of how to treat women. When it comes to treating his wife, there’s nothing my dad wouldn’t do for my mom. I’ve always tried to emulate that characteristic when it comes to my own relationship. The problem with too many guys is that they’re, in a word, selfish. They care more about themselves than their significant other. Far too often, I see girls who have an idiot boyfriend that won’t even open the car door for them. Something as simple as that is not a lot to ask for. As a matter of fact, it shouldn’t have to be asked. A good boyfriend wants to do something like that. My girlfriend lives in Chapel Hill, so I drive about three hours every other weekend to see her. I don’t drive those three hours because it’s something I HAVE to do. It’s something I GET to do. It’s a privilege. It’s something that makes her happy. Therefore, it makes me happy.

 Girls, if a guy is not willing to step up to the plate, be a man, and try to win your heart every day, ditch him. He isn’t worth your time if he views winning you over as a chore rather than an amazing opportunity. I’m telling you, there ARE guys out there that will make the effort. They DO exist. Please don’t make the same mistake so many girls make. Don’t settle for a loser.

Don't settle.
You are too precious.
