He’s totally into you. He’s handsome, funny, smart, etc. Things are going well. And of course, you’re starting to fall hard… “Maybe this is the one,” you start to ask yourself. Here is what you must do before allowing yourself to fall in love. This article absolutely applies to men too!
One important dating lesson I’ve learned after falling in love is to let a man earn the affection that I feel for him.
Now, I am not I saying that you can’t feel excited and passionate, just make sure that he is consistently earning it.
-Is he returning your calls every single time?
-Is he making time for you on the weekends?
-Is he sharing important details about his personal life with you?
-Does he flirt with other women in your presence?
Be very honest with yourself, and don’t deceive yourself in these initial stages!
Sometimes we just want to be in love, and it’s just easier to flow with the emotions rather than using our heads.
But if you don’t pay attention to signs, and if you don’t let him earn the affection that you are starting to feel, the signs that you miss are going to bite you in the butt.
Why make a man earn your affections? Because it gives you an opportunity to really see if he sincerely likes you, and wants to put in the work to be with you.
Passionate kisses, sexy banter, pricey dinners with red wine — that’s not work. That’s play! For a man, putting in the hard work means being consistent, speaking with honesty, becoming loyal, rooting for you, and including you in his life.
Once your new guy has earned your heart by being present and doing these things, then you can fall straight into his arms.
You’ll know he’ll catch you.
