What Kind Of Man Should You Date?

Earlier this year I had an interesting conversation with a friend about whether or not she was going to continue dating the guy she had been seeing. After hearing about some of the ways he acted, I thought to myself, “You deserve so much better! Why are you even talking to this tool?! He sounds like a boy, not a man.”

And then I shook myself and realized that I have done the very same thing on probably more than one occasion. We all have at some point!

You’ve got to kiss a few frogs before you find a prince, right?

Do you think about the type of person you want to date before you enter into a relationship with someone? Or are you kind of like me, where you run off to ride a few colts and rope something and 6 months later you look up and realize you’ve become a couple?

What type of man should you date? You should…

Date a man who has rougher hands than you.
Date a man who can outwork you, but appreciates your help.
Date a man who doesn’t exist on social media.
Date a man who swears, but apologizes after.
Date a man who is good to his dogs.
Date a man who can do a load of laundry and make his own meals.
Date a man who is able to say a genuine “I’m sorry.”

Date a man, not a boy with swag.

Date a man who puts your happiness above his own.
Date a man who is proud of you, and doesn’t care who knows.
Date a man who is willing to call you out when you’re acting ridiculous.
Date a man whose dreams are just as big and outrageous as your own.
Date a man who reads.
 Date a man who is constantly striving to better himself.

Don't date a man simply to date,
Date a man because you can't imagine him not being in your life.
