There are times that you are going to get caught up in the middle of a bad relationship. It is definitely not a pleasant thing, and I wish it could be avoided all together, but life is not perfect and neither are relationships. There are going to be times in a relationship when you just want to walk away, but for some reason you stay and not quite sure why. The bottom line... love won't let you leave. I know it's frustrating at times when you get your heart broke time after time just to find yourself in the same situation yet again with the same person, and you do what you've always done; you stay! People around you think you are crazy and want to give you advice about what you should do. The problem with that is that it's easy to give smart advice when you are not the one in that situation. They have all the logical answers and speak with great confidence. As soon as they get placed in the same situation, they usually handle it the same way you did. And like you, they stay and then ask themselves why?
Marriage is the ultimate dream for many young girls. We not only envision the loving, caring, and adoring husband we will have, but we also imagine him standing beside us at a lavish wedding ceremony. Marriage is a commitment that can completely enrich your life. If you are serious about getting married in the near future, you're likely starting to be more particular about who you are dating. There are ways that you can find a man ready to marry just by reading some of the signals he's giving as well as what he's saying to you. When a man is open to the idea of marriage he's planning ahead. If you just met a man who has his own home and a steady job, take that as a positive sign. A man ready to marry wants his finances in order. Men who are investing in things like sports cars or exotic vacations with singles clubs aren't going to be popping "the" question anytime in the near future. If you've been dating a man for several months and he rarely talks about his family, this may be a sign that he's not ready for any serious commitment.
Have you ever wondered why it's so hard for guys to commit? Did you have a first date with a guy and you thought things went well and then he never called you back? Do you get confused about what guys want? What exactly are the rules to follow... especially when it comes to sex? Many women confuse an immediate sense of connection and chemistry with the feeling that this is a mutual attachment as well as a mutually emotional one. The question, "Why won't guys commit?" is asked often by women of all ages following a confusing date. It is true that the dating rituals are very fluid today. Men and women are trying to find their way. What exactly is the right thing to do? The reality is, there is no standard, one-size-fits-all set of rules. It is true that some people view physical intimacy as a kind of sport, with no strings attached; others might wait a few dates before it happens; and still others are as conflicted as everyone else, waiting months with one person, and allowing it to happen on the first date with someone else.
There's a "Big Mistake" many women make when dealing with men, and this is actually something men make women do without them realizing it - most of the time. Men are generally insensitive creatures - they're bad at hints and signs, and they may even ignore them entirely on occasion. Men are afraid of commitment, or see it as something that they'll only get to if they really like the woman. Thing is, relationships become tough for women because men are usually satisfied with steady non-committal relationships, and they almost never show it. When women confess to men about their feelings, it drives the men away. They withdraw because they're not comfortable in taking the next step or they don't see anything they really want. This becomes an increasingly difficult problem when a woman has gone with a man into a stagnant relationship. If the man doesn't show that he doesn't want to take the next step, and the woman does nothing about it because she's afraid of losing the "connection, " the man becomes too complacent in the relationship and may even be equally afraid of taking the next step in fear of losing what he has.
1. While it sounds corny, he might really be afraid of committing to you. It is a big change in going from being single to being married, especially if you have not lived together. Talk to him and tell him that you are afraid, too -- It is a big change, but it is a change you will go through together. 2. He thinks he will not get to spend time with the guys anymore. But obviously, you are going to want to spend time with your girlfriends, so he will have to do something while you are shopping, right? 3. He thinks you are going to throw out his leopard-print sofa or favorite heavy metal rock t-shirt. You might suggest a new shirt, but let him know that you are not going to totally change his style. 4. He thinks you are going to want to do everything together. But we all know that everyone needs a little private time. Discuss this, and help him feel more comfortable with the idea that sharing a life together does not mean being together every second of every day. 5. He might have some financial concerns.
Every serious relationship is bound to end up in marriage. Ladies try to read in between the lines and try to see whether their is any good husband material in their boyfriend. What tells whether he can make a good husband or not? Many ladies fantasize about a tall, dark and handsome man. Their is more to it than just looks. He might have looks meant to kill but a Casanova. That would not make you happy since their will be shared resources. A good husband concentrates all his energies towards building a family and exercising love, patience and selflessness. Sometimes it is too hard to detect a good husband it might need divine intervention. Our pastor used to remind us now and then that we should forward a prayer to God about our future husband. It looked so funny then but now i completely concur with him. Is your man a good husband? Would you pick him over again for a life partner? If yes count your blessings but you must also be good wife to have achieved that. I strongly believe that every man has the potential of making a good husband.

Opening the channels of communication is difficult for many couples. Its rare for both couples to both be extroverted people. Therefore it's more likely that one will be Introverted while the other Extroverted. This is more common in real life. In a pairing such as this it's inevitable that arguments will ensue and fights will occur. To minimize the devastation by this, it's imperative that a good channel of communication be put in place to lessen the impact that an Intro/Extro relationship argument can have. To open a good channel of communication you need to lay a few ground rules which are easy in theory but difficult in practice.

A big fight may be all that's needed to end a wonderful relationship, but is there really a way to avoid it? The answer would be yes, there are signs to look out for and methods to deal with them. The following are a few general tips on what to look out for and what to do to keep your man from withdrawing. 1. Understand what's going on in his mind. Men aren't romantic. They don't believe things will simply grow into what they want it to be. You have to be direct to the point - be clear and concise about what you want. Just remember that there's a right and wrong time for you to voice out your thoughts. Of course, this can make any woman feel vulnerable. But remember, all relationships have a measure of risk to them. In life, there are few things that can guarantee some form of profit without the person involved taking a risk, and love is definitely not one of them. Making a relationship grow means taking chances, but this doesn't mean that a woman can't put the scales in her favor.
It takes a wise woman to spot this sort out at first sight, but generally speaking, emotionally unavailable men are easier to date than to identify. Unfortunately, they are not as glaringly obvious to spot out as most would prefer, but there are a few general ideas that can be kept in mind. First of all, the emotionally unavailable man is never alone. He surrounds himself with meaningless, short-lived relationships, despite his supposed "commitment" to them. He is never serious when it comes to these relationships, opting to be checking the field than to be tied down. Do not be fooled when he says something along the lines of "keeping my options open", because it is simply means that he doesn't want to be with just one person. Second, he doesn't know what he wants. If you take a good, long look at all his flings, they will most probably be as assorted as a pack of M&M's. There will be no continuing trend in their personalities, or possibly even their looks. He has no idea as to what makes him tick in a woman;
