How do you know if you’re marriage material? The answer to that question isn’t as straightforward as many would like to believe. The main problem is that evaluating yourself can be quite tricky. It takes a high level of honesty to be critical of yourself. No one likes to feel like they’re anything other than the best. But, you may have some things that need to be worked on. Those things could be holding you back in the love department. If marriage is what you seek, then you’re going to have to change your ways. If not, then you better get used to lonely nights on the couch alone.
Flirting is a completely different ballgame than having a wandering eye. You keep flirting with other people right in front of the person you’re dating. Why? Don’t you understand that it’s only going to get worse from here? No one feels comfortable when their partner is flirting with someone else. You may think it’s harmless talk, but your partner doesn’t feel that way. They believe you are trying to find someone else who will replace them. Put a stop to the flirting before your partner does a little flirting of their own and finds someone else worthy of a relationship.
Everyone makes mistakes. You’re not perfect and pretending that you are is stupid. If you make a mistake, own up to it. You can’t possibly think that it’s a good idea never to take responsibility for your shortcomings. You make mistakes, and it’s time for you to own up to them. You should say you’re sorry and then work on making sure that you don’t make the same mistake again. That’s how you prove that you genuinely are sorry for your actions.
How do you react when situations become tedious? Do you fly off the handle and storm out of the room? You can’t act like that and expect anyone to respect you. You need to be calm so that it’s possible to think through problems. If you think what turns people off in situations like these is anger, then you’re greatly mistaken. They see your inability to solve problems as a more significant issue than anger.
Your friends are more important to you than your partner. You go out of your way to spend as much time with your friends as possible. All your partner wants is a little bit of your time. Why can’t you give it to them? It makes them feel like you think they’re worthless. That’s essentially what you’re saying by not wanting to spend time with them.
You are irresponsible with your money. You spend all of your money on yourself. You don’t think about tomorrow at all. You might work hard, but that’s no excuse for wasting your money. A person is going to think about how you’re going to react when there are children in the picture. Are you the type who will take care of their children? If not, then they aren’t going to want to start a family with you. Be smart and set aside a little mad money when you get paid. Keep the rest for bills and save some for a rainy day.
No one is as good as you are. They all fail. You make sure to let everyone know that fact as well. Keep your mouth shut and don’t tell everyone of their shortcomings. How would you like it if they kept bringing all of your failures to your attention? You wouldn’t like that at all. It’s no different when you keep repeatedly pointing out their flaws. You’re not helping them improve themselves in the slightest. Instead, you’re setting yourself up for failure in a terrible way. Only be critical of others when it’s called for and leave the nitpicking to people who want to remain single for the rest of their lives.
You can’t keep your eyes off of any one of the opposite sex. You always stare at other people and pay close attention to their body parts. If you’re single, then keep on looking. If you’re involved with someone else, it’s time to take your eyes off of other people. No one likes it when their partner keeps staring at someone else. The first thing they think is that you’re going to cheat on them. They don’t know that you’re just soaking in all of their beauty. You give the wrong impression by being far too interested in someone else.
There’s a difference between being greedy and a cheapskate. A cheapskate is someone who doesn’t want to part ways with their money. Someone greedy won’t separate themselves from anything they own. You don’t get anywhere in life by hoarding everything. You certainly won’t find a person who’s willing to tolerate it. Life is a two-way street, and sometimes you have to part ways with things that are important to you. If not, then you can be greedy all alone. Then, you’ll have your stuff, and no one can bother you. If that doesn’t sound good to you, then it’s time to do something about it.
You tell someone you’re going to do something and never follow through. It makes you look dishonest. No one is capable of following through whenever it comes to delivering on every promise. But, you’re not keeping any of your promises at all. That tells the other person you’re not serious in the least. You’re just telling them what they want to hear. If you can’t follow through, then don’t say you can. The honesty will be refreshing, and you won’t let the other person down by breaking your promises.
Who doesn’t like to go out for a drink now and then? You’re the type who takes it to a whole different level. You go out to drink almost every night of the week. Then, there are the weekends. That’s when you double down and drink even more. No one wants to be married to a drunk. Anyone who hooks up with you at this point has an ulterior motive. Clean yourself up and leave the drinking for birthdays and holidays.
