Contrary to what MOST of us think, having a big pile of cash lying around doesn’t guarantee we’re always going to be happy. In fact, what we believe will make us happy won’t actually do the trick.
And that applies to dating as well. You might assume that a certain kind of guy is going to give you your “happily ever after”, but the expectations in our heads don’t always correlate to reality.
Who knows, the free-spirited, take-me-where-the-wind-blows type of guy you always pictured yourself falling in love with might not be the ONLY good match for you. Maybe that feeling of fun and freedom isn’t the only criteria for an ideal relationship.
Who says dating a 9-to-5, straight-arrow kind of guy won’t provide you just as much happiness – even without the whirlwind romance you’ve dreamed about? Who says he can’t offer you just as much excitement as other types of men?
If you want to look at the business of dating guys in a more positive light, here’s my recommendation: keep your eye OFF the prize.
One of the things I notice with a lot of women is that they tend to focus too much on the end result when they should be enjoying the ride.
When people get on the roller coaster, they don’t tell themselves, “Boy, I’m really looking forward to the end of this ride!”
It’s all about savoring the anticipation, enjoying the sudden twists and turns, and above all, having a blast.
If you lose sight of this, you’ll just end up feeling horrible when your date doesn’t have that picture-perfect Hollywood ending that you envisioned.
