Questions you need to answer before settling down
29 June 2016, 09:27
Before you settle down, answer these questions:
1) What can I offer financially? Every woman is seemingly looking for a financially stable man. But do you also have something to bring to the table? Life is hard and men nowadays need someone to keep the family going when things go south on his side. They also need financial boosters. When he is broke, she can lend him money. And when she is walking on the red carpet, he can be her prop. That is the beauty of symmetrical connection in marriage.
2) Am I emotionally stable? Carrying along the baggage of past mistakes is not going to work if you need someone to fill that vacuum in your heart. It's just irritating having someone who keeps reminding you about her fear of a break up. Open up your heart and learn to love again.

Just like Westlife says in their song The Rose, "Some say love it is a razor that leaves your soul to bleed. Some say love it is a hunger, an endless aching need. It's the heart afraid of breaking that never learns to dance. It's the dream afraid of waking that never takes the chance. It's the one who won't be taken who cannot seem to give and the soul afraid of dying that never learns to live." Just forget the past and free yourself from the emotional loss of the man of your dreams.
3) Am I ready to change my attitude or character? Are you the rigid character that wants a man to do things your own way when you can't think twice about changing your habits? Well, when it comes to marriage, inflexibility is a vice. If you need him to love you the way you want, you have to be the person he can associate with without feeling tortured. Don't expect to find a refined product in a man if you are unmarketable.
