Choosing between love or money!
we, as millennial,
have become so materialistic and selfish in our approach towards finding the “right one”, that we tend to focus more on that person’s bank account rather than the kind of individual he/she is.
Which, in the end, leads to a messed up relationship that leaves you emotionally distressed.
As our society has been functioning like this for ages, even our parents tend to choose the best groom or bride for us as per their educational qualification, annual package and family status.
Again, I am not saying that one should not be practical in their approach and look for somebody who has no serious goals in life. But somebody who is ready to hold your hand and achieve their dreams with you.
1. Look for happiness:
Look for a partner who can make you happy even when you have had a bad day. It doesn’t mean that the person should always crack a joke! No. The person should be by your side and is ready to listen to the reason behind your sadness.
2. One man’s woman & Vice versa:
Insecurities, jealousy, cheating…These are some of the words that add poison to every relationship. Find a person who is loyal to you. And how do you check that? Good question.
If the person has given you assurance and has showered so much love that it leaves no room for all of this. That relationship starts building trust on its own and you would be worrying least about it.
3. The Planner:
As it is said, things never happen the way you want them to be. But a little planning never goes waste. Similarly, somebody who has their life sorted shows a lot about their personality like how seriously they take their career, relationship etc. And you can count on that person and take the relationship to the next level.
4. Space. Space and more space
I am not saying that the person should not worry about you. No, not at all. If you are looking for somebody who should be possessive about you, that is okay. But be careful in it. As there is a fine line in being possessive and overtly clingy. Every individual has its own set of friends, family and choices. One should look for someone who respects that freedom and gives you your time.
5. Respect it is!
If the person does not respect you as an individual, be it privately or publicly, then its not worth it. Always seek for someone who is proud of who you are and does not try to change the way you dress up, talk, look, the kind of friends you have. If the person accepts all of you, go for it!
So all the peeps out there who are looking for their “true love”, just take a deep breath, analyse things, do not overthink and make good memories with the one, after all money can’t buy happiness all the time. Right?
