The year 2013 is here. It's a time for self-improvement and perhaps a time for you to set some good standards for your dating.
As 20 Something dating in a urban environment, I have learned one thing about finding a good man and ultimately meeting the one - you have to respect yourself to get the results you desire.
Would you believe if I told you, you could get any man in the world to fully commit to you if you fully respect yourself?
It's 100%. Before you debate with me, I will tell you why this is the only way to a happy, loving and committed relationship.
You have to inspire a man to commit to you by how you make him feel about himself. You can't make him feel like superman if you don't feel like superwoman all on your own.
Here are some words from Muhammad Ali that should make you a believer:
"Everything that God made valuable in the world is covered and hard to get to. Where do you find diamonds? Deep down in the ground, covered and protected. Where do you find pearls? Deep down at the bottom of the ocean, covered up and protected in a beautiful shell. Where do you find gold? Way down in the mine, covered with layers and layers of rock. You've got to work hard to get to them."
This is how you should carry yourself in a dating relationship- treat yourself as sacred. You're precious and more valuable than diamonds and pearls. What for the right love to uncover you by carrying yourself with respect. Only a man worthy of you will be able to live up to this love you have waiting for the one.
