My Insights!

I believe when the love for each other feels right, why wait a year or two to date to know what you already know about the person in the first few months? If the two of you both enjoy each other’s company, recognized each other’s positive and not-so-positive attributes, and still want to have your mate’s back, what else needs to be discussed. I have this debate with my girlfriends all the time. When the timing and maturity is in sync a man becomes ready to find his mate. When they do, provided they are not jaded, they do not waste time. I remember dating a guy from college, maybe a couple of years too long, my aunt approached me and asked what the heck I was doing. For my aunt, my uncle asked for her hand in marriage within six months of dating. She explained to me that it does not take that long for a man to figure out if he wants you in his life. If it does, he is dealing with his own personal issues or there is something about you that causes hesitation. However, more times than not, it is not about you. She told me to move on and let him deal with his issues, when he is ready he will come back. If he is lucky, you may still be there or someone else will acknowledge and appreciate your worth. And sure enough, I did find a man shortly after my break-up who was ready and wanted me to be a part of his life. He put a ring on it within nine months and discussions began with his family a couple of months prior. So I am a firm believer, if it feels right go with the momentum. Sometimes the hesitation brings a lot of unnecessary wounds. I wish much success to Evan and Ashlee’s engagement.
