So you’ve been single for what seems like (or maybe is already) years now, and you’re fed up. You’ve dated your fair share of men, and while some of them check off the boxes that you’re hoping to find in your potential husband, something always feels a bit off. You feel like you’ll never be able to find a guy who’s worth taking the plunge for and you wonder if you’re just being too picky. But commitment is no joke for you. Here’s how waiting a long while for Mr. Right will allow you to become the best version of yourself.
Your integrity will be stronger than ever
After meeting many different guys, your integrity will be put to the test. Some days, you may feel like giving up and taking a shot at the next decent guy who makes his move. Your morals and values will constantly be questioned during this process, but you’ll realize that they come out on top every time. Each time you tell yourself that you refuse to settle for less than you deserve, your character will only be strengthened.
You grow more comfortable with being independent
The more time you spend alone, the more you’ll realize how much you appreciate your solitude and freedom. Typical boyfriend or husband duties are automatically deferred to you because you’re all you’ve got, and that’s perfectly fine. On the flip side, men also gravitate towards women who know they can hold their own.
You won’t waste time on men who will only let you down
Getting into relationships with men you’re not into will only lead to heartbreak (for you and for them). When you save yourself that wasted time and energy, you are able to direct it towards better experiences and relationships for the future.
He’ll admire your patience (and then some)
What’s so attractive about waiting for the right guy is that it’s clear you know what you bring to the table. You may not realize it, but your ability to wait around for Mr. Right demonstrates a high level of self-worth, patience, dignity, levelheadedness and confidence. Men don’t want an easy effort. If she’s worth it (and he cares about her), he’ll fight tooth and nail to gain her affection.
You’ll become a better you (who will attract a better man)
Since you’re not putting the energy into building a relationship, the time spent on yourself will become that much stronger. You’ll have the time to focus on developing your hobbies, interests and knowledge. You may even be more available for traveling to new places. The things you learn and pick up throughout your single-life will allow you to grow and mature, finding a better partner as a result.
