6 Ways to Find Your Soulmate
5. Be prepared to accept the love you find
Acceptance does not equal settling. I’m not talking about staying with the first suitor who comes along even if it’s not a perfect match. I’m talking about prepping yourself to accept the man you choose to spend your time with for who he is.
It’s human nature to want to change your partner, but there’s a fine line between having a reasonable desire for growth and trying to change his/her fundamentals–and sometimes it’s hard to know the difference. Believe me, I’ve been there!
A romantic relationship is in many ways like a friendship. There’s going to be things you love, and things you could do without. Sometimes he might drive you crazy just like, let’s be honest, your nearest and dearest friends.
So if you’d prefer your guy ate fewer French fries–and that’s your chief concern–you’re probably in something good. But if you’re hoping he’ll eventually get over his political views or suddenly become Mr. Personality when his idea of a good night is watching the game at home, it’s probably time to move on. Accept the whole package, and trust that if he’s in it to win it he’ll do the same for you.
