Whether you’ve been with someone for five months or five years, you deserve the best. You should be with someone who wants you…

Life is short. Romance, passion, success and love are needed to make life fulfilling and great. Just like significant ingredients are needed to make life amazing, the same is true for a relationship. A relationship needs both people to love, cherish, respect and care about each other equally.

Many people date someone who doesn’t really want them. Their partner doesn’t give them everything that they need. How do you know if you’re dating a man who really wants you? Well, that’s simple.

You should be able to immediately answer YES to all of these questions …

1. Compliments are key

Does the person you’re dating compliment you? Does he tell you that you’re beautiful?

When you’re dating someone who wants you, they should flatter you often.

When you’re involved with someone, they’re supposed to make you feel fantastic – ALL the time!

2. I feel so good

Does he make you feel good about yourself? When you’ve had a bad day, does he still make you feel great? Does he empower you to feel like you can do anything? Does he tell you that you’re awesome?

When you’re involved with someone, they’re supposed to make you feel fantastic – ALL the time!

3. Intelligence is sexy

Does he tell you that you’re smart? Does he think that you’re intelligent?

In a strong relationship, your partner is supposed to make you feel wonderful. The person you’re dating is supposed to add to and improve your life.

4. Be supportive

Does he emotionally support you? Does he mentally encourage you?

When you care about someone, you want them to succeed and be happy doing whatever they love. You don’t have to share each other’s passions, but you should want to stand beside them as they pursue their goals.

5. Some encouragement, please

Does he make you want to be a better person? Does he encourage you to be the best version of yourself?

The person you’re with should inspire you to be extra fabulous!

The person you’re dating should make your day better by doing small things to show you how much he adores you

6. Let’s get busy

Do you want each other? Does your partner want to pleasure you? To keep it PG rated: Does he want to kiss you often? Does he want to make out with you whenever he can?

A relationship is supposed to be pleasurable – literally. Plain and simple, your partner should want to sexually satisfy you.

7. I’m special

Does he make you feel special? Does he make you feel lucky?

When you’re happy with someone, when they are good for you, you feel like you’re on top of the world. You feel fortunate because you’re dating someone extraordinary. The person you’re seeing should feel that way too.

8. Be caring

Does he surprise you with your favourite dessert? Does he sometimes bring home your meal of choice, just because?

The man you’re dating should show you that he cares for you, by being thoughtful. He should make your day better by doing small things to show you how much he adores you.

Being romantic is a simple way to increase your love connection

9. A little romance

If you like flowers, does he ever bring them home for you? If you hate a certain chore, does he ever do it for you? Does he leave you a note saying how he can’t wait to see you later? Does he ever send you a love text?

Romance is needed to keep a relationship alive. Being romantic is a simple way to increase your love connection.

The man you’re seeing should make you feel like a King or Queen. I hear too many stories of people who aren’t happy in a relationship – they’re just comfortable. They’re afraid of going back to the dating pool so they stay with someone out of fear. Don’t let that be you. Whether you’ve been with someone for five months or five years, you deserve the best. You should be with someone who wants you.
