Feel like you’re stuck in a dating rut? Are all your recent relationships seeming to end as soon as they begin and worse, do you feel a sense of relief when it’s over?
Your partner should be bringing out the best in you but if you often feel you are fathering a daughter rather than sharing your life with an equal partner, it may be time to start running in the opposite direction – and as fast as you can.
There are plenty of fish in the sea but it’s not everyday you score the biggest catch. Read on to know if you are one of the lucky few who are dating the woman of their dreams.
You know your partner is a woman and not a girl if…
1. You Can Split The Bill
Financial independence in a woman is sexy. If your girlfriend does not expect you to pick the tab up on every date, rest assured you are dating a strong and independent woman. Come on guys, this is the 21st century and we all have bills to pay. Offering to split the cheque not only makes her considerate, it makes those rare occasions when you treat her that much more special!
2. No Facebook? No Problem
Little girls need validation on social media that your relationship is real, a woman knows that she doesn’t need a Facebook relationship status to tell her she’s the one. A woman lives her life with you outside the social media bubble, she’s not going to make a big deal if you forget to like a profile picture or like another girl’s status – you’re present for her in reality and that’s all that matters.
3. She Doesn’t Need You
A woman does not behave like a damsel in distress waiting for a prince on a white horse to come and rescue her. Women don’t have time for waiting, that’s because they are too busy hitching up their sleeves and kicking off their heels so that they can fend for themselves. Unlike girls who are constantly needing you, know that your partner is a woman if she doesn’t need you, but wants you.
4. What You See Is What You Get
A real woman doesn’t play games, with her life is always black and white. She tells you where she wants to eat, what you made her feel, and calls you out when you are genuinely being a jerk. She can be vulnerable too, but only if it helps her connect better with you. There’s no pretending with her and because she’s so comfortable being herself, you can relax and be yourself too.
5. She Sees Beyond The Mirror
A woman knows that while looks can fade, it’s personality and the ability to make her laugh that’s going to last. Whether you’ve got a six-pack or a beer belly, a woman will love you just the same. She won’t expect you to clean up for her but because she sees deeper than your mirror, you’re going to want to. After all, you want to complement her beauty too, don’t you?
6. She Supports You
You know your partner is a woman if you feel comfortable sharing your dreams and your deepest, darkest fears with her. She’s mature enough to understand that you need to pursue your dreams to be the best version of yourself and will stand by you even if you fail. If you succeed, she will be the first person to celebrate, although you both know, you could never have gotten there without her. All she asks in return is that you stand by her too.
7. She Dresses for Herself
Unlike girls who often think that less is more, women know that provocative dressing is not the only way to be sexy. Whether in pajamas, an old sweatshirt, or a clingy dress, a woman’s sexual appeal shines through because she knows that loving yourself is the easiest way to be sexy.
8. She Fights You For The Last Slice of Pizza
A woman respects her body and watches what she puts inside. She eats healthy and works out but that doesn’t mean she’s not going to fight you tooth and nail for that last slice of pizza. A woman, after all, knows that a little indulgence is always good and when she eats, she really EATS. That’s because she knows she can and when she wants something she does it.
9. She’s Ok Staying In
That’s not to say a woman doesn’t enjoy letting her hair down and painting the town red, it’s just that she can have just as much fun staying at home, curled up with a book or cuddling in front of the television. She doesn’t need to be seen and she doesn’t need to find the party – she knows that the party is where she is!
10. She Loves You. No Clauses.
Last, but not the least, you’ll know you’re finally in a mature, adult relationship when your partner loves you for who you are and accepts you, flaws and all. With a woman there will be no clauses to the relationship, she will love you regardless of whether you can afford to buy her the new Prada handbag, take her on a holiday to Europe, or even if you lose your job. As long as you treat her with respect and reciprocate her love, she will stand by your side through thick and thin.
If you’re lucky enough to have a partner who meets the above criteria, know that you are a very lucky man. In a world full of girls, real women are a rarity. If you have managed to capture the heart of a real woman, know she doesn’t give in easily. You have found yourself a gem, hold on to her tightly and enjoy life’s journey with her by your side.
