See I believe that the men women choose to date is often a reflection of how they feel about themselves. Women who choose men who abuse them and use them, often have low self esteem and don't believe they deserve any better. Now this is an extreme case of course, but I believe a lot of us tow this line in a way. Many of us are not at rock bottom on the self esteem chart, but we also aren't skyrocketing either. So therefore, we start accepting mediocre guys to take the place of prince charming because we fear that that's all we deserve. We settle for the guy who's decent looking rather than the one who makes us drool like a dog staring at a begin strip. We date guys who aren't bad guys, but they don't value us as much as they should, they don't constantly look for ways t make us smile or laugh, they don't constantly think up ways too sweep you off your feet and then we categorize this kind of relationship as "real life". Now don't get me wrong, I get that everyday isn't sunshine and roses, but I am surrounded by friends who married a real prince instead of settling for the 4th and 5th heirs. Their princes are still looking for ways to appreciate them and new ways to show their love to them years into their marriage.
Us single women need to start revolutionizing the way we think about ourselves and I believe that if we do, what we accept is what we will start attracting. We are smart, educated, successful, God-fearing, beautiful women who are a prize. Any man uninterested in per suing the prize with everything in him simply isn't worth it. Love yourself enough to wait for the guy who is so much more than you ever dreamed of. Wait for the guy that seems "too good for you". Wait for the guy who challenges, encourages, and inspires you. Wait for the guy who treats you like the princess you are and treasures your heart and well being above his own. The only thing worse than waiting is wishing you had waited.
