If you’re dating a man and wondering if you’re ready to take the next step, you want to make sure he’s the right man for you. You want to be able to recognize not only positive qualities but the negative as well. Here are six signs that the man you’re dating might not be the right man for you.
1. He doesn’t consider your needs
If the man you’re dating thinks more about himself and what he wants, he might be too selfish to be the right man for you. It’s important that your needs are considered as well as his. If you mention wanting to visit the museum for your weekend date and he blows off your idea for what he thinks is a better date, your interests are being ignored. Relationships are about compromise. You might not always want to do what he does, but you will because you love him. He should be willing to do the same because your needs matter to him. This type of man probably isn’t the man for you.
2. There’s a lack of trust
If either you or the man your dating lacks trust in the other, this is a sign that he might not be the man for you. Trust is required in a romantic relationship. If you or your boyfriend have trust issues because of past relationships, that is something that needs to be dealt with. Trust issues can lead to controlling behavior, manipulations, and accusations that you will feel the need to defend yourself again. A lack of trust in a relationship can cause you to walk on eggshells around your boyfriend to avoid upsetting him or making him think you’re hiding something.
3. You can’t turn to him for comfort
