It’s amazing to get relationship advice from a woman you know has a strong marriage and who’s been married for years. It’s even more amazing when it’s our First Lady. When you spend years lowering your standards by way of entertaining meaningless relationships, it eventually toys with your self-esteem. Sometimes you find yourself longing for Mr. Right. and your eagerness to have him sends you spiraling into troubled territory with Mr. Wrong. Your lack of confidence can taint your thoughts and have you believing that the right man may never come along. I found that as long as you’re focusing on you, the man you desire will come along eventually. Read below what our First Lady Michelle O. believes you should seek when dating a man:
Cute’s good. But cute only lasts for so long, and then it’s, Who are you as a person? That’s the advice I would give to women: Don’t look at the bankbook or the title. Look at the heart. Look at the soul. Look at how the guy treats his mother and what he says about women. How he acts with children he doesn’t know. And, more important, how does he treat you? When you’re dating a man, you should always feel good. You should never feel less than. You should never doubt yourself. You shouldn’t be in a relationship with somebody who doesn’t make you completely happy and make you feel whole. And if you’re in that relationship and you’re dating, then my advice is, don’t get married. Get out of it and find that person that brings you complete and utter joy with who you are at the moment.
