Tell me... what is love? What does REAL love look like?"
My reply: Love — REAL love — is the connection you feel when someone sees the YOU of you—your imperfections, your challenges, your issues, your peccadillos. And they not only accept you for who you are—without judgement or attempts to make you fit some preconceived mold—they inspire you to become even more… to grow into a better version of yourself. You don’t want to grow and become more *for* them, you simply want to be better so you can share your better self *with* them.
They don’t feel the need to keep or control you, because they recognize that they not only don’t want to… they shouldn’t need to, so they don’t. They don’t project their past experiences on you because—although they might have experienced relationship challenges with others in the past—they realize that you are your own unique person… and you are not their past; you are their future.
They respect that you are in charge of yourself, and they trust you because they trust themselves.You would never intentionally hurt them, lie to them, or belittle them because they are a part of you… a part of your experience in life… and by treating them poorly, you would essentially be hurting, lying, or belittling yourself.
Someone in real love is to know how to give love *and* how to receive it… because they know they are valuable and deserve it. And not only do they know it, they want YOU to know how valuable YOU are... because they also feel that connection and want to show you that you matter for no other reason than you… are you.
But mostly, they want to share they way you see and experience the world.Dear THOSE Ladies: Yeah... I know. You want him to be 6'3". He needs to have a certain way of walking. He needs to have a certain income level. He needs to [insert long list of requirements here]. Nothing wrong with wanting your needs met... but if you are hell-bent on obtaining a guy with specific qualifications, you will spend endless time searching for a *package*... instead of discovering the soul within the man. By doing so, you will likely pass up the right guy—thoughtful, connected, loving—who might be a little on the short side... or who might not own his house yet... or whatever. Think about it this way: Sometimes Prince Charming comes wearing nerdy glasses. See the MAN for who he is in his soul—without projecting your own expectations, and love will be waiting.
Love doesn't hurt. Rejection hurts. Playing games hurts. Abuse, being ignored, complacency, and indifference all hurt. But love feels good, and you know it when it's right.
"Sorry, I've been busy." "Yeah, I meant to call you." These are the statements of someone who is not making you a priority. Bottom line: When someone *really* wants something, usually there is nothing they won't do to get it.
This predatory environment has far-reaching implications. These men play on/prey on women. After a few bad dates and misplaced emotional investment in the wrong guys, many of these women decide that all men are like this. So, when a genuinely nice guy comes along, she’s not interested, or else she decides that he’s “just like all the rest.” The nice guy then laments that women only date the jerks, and he sets out to become a jerk in order to garner a woman’s interest.
STOP WAITING for later. For the right/perfect person. For the weight to come off. For more money. For tomorrow. For soon. For a better time. There is no perfect time for anything. Happiness awaits those who live and love IN THE MOMENT. By waiting, you are allowing endless moments to pass you by. Live in The Now... don't wait for Someday.

Love is great. BUT... it's better to refuse to settle for second-best and be single, than to sacrifice your wants, needs and self-esteem just to be in a relationship.
Don't chase people.
Be yourself, do your own thing, and work hard.
The right people- the ones who really belong in your life-
Will come to you. And stay!!!
