Are You Willing to Settle?

Men are from Mars and women are from Venus. Are we that completely different? I think not. Sometimes it feels as if we're speaking different languages, but desire the same things. I love how women deal with potential relationships like a trip to the grocery store.

1. Attractive
2. Intelligent
3. Spiritual
4. Loving
I could go on with the list, but you get my point. We check these items off as we're shopping for an inanimate object, not a person. Men have items on their list too. I consider myself an equal opportunity employer. Although I've come to the realization that there are some things I'm not willing to overlook or accept. Even funnier is how men and women expect to go to the club and find their "soul mate". If you did, please let me know how that's working for you. That's what happens when you hump for a bargain.

The way you begin a relationship is the way you usually finish. Meaning: Issues you deal with in the beginning can sometimes be the very same issues that become the problem in the relationship. I guess we need to be smart and informed consumers. I'm learning more and more about myself and what makes me happy. I don't need a relationship to define who I am, but I would like to be in one. The prerequisite is a healthy, mature, and loving relationship. Going back to the grocery store analogy; do you get what you want or are you shopping for what you need?

QUESTION: Are You Willing to Settle?

  1. It is a mindset thing to me as well... even if you call it settling, you can project your mind to think you have just hit the jackpot!

  2. I'm absolutely not willing to settle, and I can honestly say that I get what I need.

  4. To briefly address your grocery store analogy, when in the produce section I choose the best, brightest, freshest, firmest most ripe luscious strawberries that taste the best.

    When good strawberries are not available, I don't compromise and settle for the ones that have withered, grown a layer of fuzz or are encircled with fruit flies. I either find my good berries or I go without!



    Thing is, I am not even in the store...

  6. Wow, am I willing to settle? No I am not, if I had settled then I know I would have a million children running around and probably in a million different relationships. I do believe most people settle for what's around them, especially females. In everyday life I say beautiful, successful women looking for love. I'm sure they pull out their grocery list, because they generally have one specific kind of guy they would prefer, and generally that's the kind of man that put her through hell. She will by pass the good for the bad, thinking that what look good is good(remember everything that glitter is not gold and all food that look good don't taste good). Men we generally have a motive when we meet a woman, sometimes the motive is good and sometimes it's bad. I truly feel you settle the moment you make a decision and don't ask GOD for a answer. GOD has answers for you that a teacher, psychiatrist, or doctor couldn't even answer.
    P.S.: Don't settle, ask GOD.

  8. Many women say that they don't settle, but is that really true? Let's really think about that for a moment... Ladies if you have EVER SEEN A GUY AND SAID THE FOLLOWING: THEN YOU HAVE INDEED SETTLED!!!
    1. He really has potential(I can work with him and make him into a better man)

    2. All he needs is a good women in his life and that will make him a good man (The other females before me just wasn't women enough, I know how to handle a men)

    3. He is so cute! We would have cute babies. Everybody says we would make a cute couple.(I know he has 6 kids by 6 babies mama's and no job)He said, "Boo I would give you the world." (A WORLD OF HELL!!! LOL)

    4. I might not find a man that can "DO IT" like he can. "I know he's not good for me but I like a little bad boy." "Good guys are boring."

    5. I would rather have a half broke-down man then no man at all.

    LADIES PLEASE... DO AN INVENTORY CHECK-UP FROM THE NECK-UP! WHAT THE HELL!!! IT START WITH YOU AND ENDS WITH YOU!

    Put yourself first! Instead of making a grocery list for him, make a grocery list ABOUT YOU, FOR YOU.

    Well that's just my take on it, It's All About Love :-)
