Coming across a man with a great smile, similar values and a successful career can feel like a dream come true.
But just because he has amazing qualities doesn’t always mean he’s right for you. There are several great qualities that won’t automatically make a man Mr. Right.
Here are five of them:
1. He’s successful
Being successful in any walk of life is quite alluring for most women. Whether he’s thriving as an entrepreneur, in his chosen career field or as a financially independent philanthropist, finding a man who is doing well at what he loves is great. But being set in his life doesn’t mean he’s the man for you. What he actually does for a living and why he does it can say a lot about him. His career values may clash with your personal values and this can cause conflict in a relationship. Long hours or being on-call 24-7 can also cause a rift in your romance. And being in the public eye or in love with a highly sought after man can be truly difficult to deal with. For things to work, you need to be willing to live the life his success creates.
2. He’s well off
Making good money doesn’t make a man grown. An acquaintance admitted to me that even though he had a well-paying job that he loved and his own home, he absolutely did not have his stuff together. How a man makes (or doesn’t make) his own living can also speak volumes about who he is and the kind of partner he is. Every woman wants to feel safe, protected and comfortable. Biologically speaking women will prefer a man with more resources. But marrying a wealthy man is far from a guarantee of a happily ever after. Pay attention to how much of his life is focused on making money versus creating a safe and comfortable life for the both of you.
3. He’s educated
Intellectual connection is a huge and underrated part of successful relationships. However, being with a brainiac is not always a safe bet. I know from experience how some hyper-intellectual men can be emotionally cold and stunted. They can sometimes become physically aloof and even psychologically manipulative. An educated man is likely to be above average in intelligence, and these sour signs should be paid attention to. Dating someone with a higher educational degree doesn’t mean you’ll always be on the same mental playing field. There are no guarantees in love, so get to know him beyond his degrees.
