If you have already opened your horizons and met different people, including the man you date, now give yourself the opportunity for your partner to be someone who considers you a person worthy of being loved.
These are the main differences in attitudes that a boyfriend has who is not interested in taking another step, and he who is willing, but also wants to marry you.
1. About ‘be a good match’
The boy you date: Think about what you have to offer. He likes you because you give him your time and attention, because you find him attractive and share with him interests and hobbies such as playing a sport or listening to his favorite band. He hopes you are a good match for him.
The boy you marry: Think about what he has to offer you. He loves you for who you are, appreciate your whims, your flaws, your strange sense of humor, the strange way you laugh and read Edgar Allan Poe. Hope to be a good match for you.
The boy you date: He gets jealous very fast when you're with other boys. He gets angry easily, which often ends with small arguments. He is possessive about your time, and although that can be nice at times, it can also become frankly annoying.
The boy you marry: It puts their trust in you and gives you the benefit of the doubt. Try to understand your point of view before affirming his. He is willing to give you your space when you need it. He is always open to talk about things and exercises patience by getting angry.
3. About being pretty
The boy you date: He's the guy you wear makeup for. You spend hours preparing yourself because you want to impress him and look pretty, and at the end of the night I give you a kiss that reminds you that he is yours.
The boy you marry: He is the boy who is not aware of himself if you are around him. He tells you that you are pretty with or without makeup, because he loves you with his heart. You don't need a kiss to confirm that he loves you, but he gives it to you anyway, and every time you feel butterflies that flutter inside his stomach.
4. On the interest of each other
The boy you date: It's a mystery. He likes to be a puzzle for you to solve, and you try to be enigmatic to keep him interested. You are afraid that over time, they may get bored of each other.
The boy you marry: You know it as the palm of your hand. You let your guard down because you feel comfortable with him to reveal his secrets. Although there are times when you can get bored together, in general you feel happy to be in their company.
5. Fun vs. Feelings
The guy you like: It's the one you have fun with. You are with him because he moves your emotions.
The boy you marry: It's the one you not only have fun with, you can also do a lot of other things. You have feelings for him, not just ‘chemistry’. You are in love because he understands that loving you involves sacrificing part of his time, energy, and is willing to do so. He loves you patiently, enduring, faithful and selfless.
"Love is patient. Love is kind. He is not envious or proud. It is not selfish. He does not hold a grudge. He always believes everything, expects it and supports it. ” Corinthians 13: 4-7
