As it says above. Eg- she must have shown she really cares for me, she must have shown she only has eyes for me and won't flirt with other guys, she must be on the same wavelength as me, she must be able to make me laugh, she must be sexy to me, she can't be too clingy, we must have similar interests etc. What makes you want to commit? Is it simply because you don't want anyone else to have her? Is it because you think going that extra step and being in a monogamous relationship is what you need in your life? Why not be in an open relationship eg where you have her to a degree but you can both see others, why do you want it to just be the 2 of you?
Most Helpful Guy
Dating Material for me:
Not a drug user. I'm not one, and I don't want to always have the fact that she could be arrested and taken from me at any point in time hanging over my head.
A Christian. I'm one, and while I do not care at all to be friends with non-Christians (many if not most of my friends are non-Christians) dating is different. Its so much more intimate, and its easier to pull someone down than help them up. I know I would be pulled down, so its best to avoid that situation.
I won't date a feminist (again.) There is nothing wrong with an "enlightened" female. Heck, I'm probably more of a feminist than most republican mothers. That said, my relationship slowly turned into this competition. She wanted all this power, and wanted to believe that she was the man in the relationship. This made me want to stand up and be a bit more overly male-istic in order to not get trampled. Take romance for example, most basic romantic ideas (when its the guy doing it) involve grand gestures of servitude and kindness toward the gal. He is does something sweet that makes him seem less and her seem more. That's great! I love doing that! I love seeing a girls face light up. I like making people happy. But this feminist would use that against me. She would make it seem like I did those things not out of joy, but because that was my role. I wasn't showing servitude, I was a servant. Thus, I never did anything romantic for most of our 2 year relationship.
I would like her to be smart, at least in something, not necessarily in everything. I'm a smart guy, and I've always valued intelligence and education. Its a turn-off to me when girls flaunt their ignorance. I love a girl who isn't afraid to show what they know. (Maybe that's why I fell for that feminist to begin with... hmmm..)0
