He’s not on the road 40 weeks a year, but he works 60 hours a week. ” What nice guys don’t realize is that you’re not looking for a man to cater to your whims. He might as well ask you that awful question: “What do YOU want to do?
Both men claim to want to find love, but aren’t willing to sacrifice for it. It’s not that they’re bad people, it’s that they don’t have much to give to the relationship. It’s the most important thing in the world for them. You’re looking for a man to lead, to make sound decisions, to drive the car while you ride shotgun. And, believe it or not, you may be at the root of it. You tell him you’d prefer one in a different part of town. You tell him that you weren’t crazy about the reviews. ” Hey, at least he knows you’re not going to shoot down your own idea.
The two of you may have even talked about getting married.
Ephesians urges all Christians to submit to each other because of our loyalty to Christ.

And I’m thinking, ‘Buddy, just make a decision and tell me what we’re doing.

I want a man who can take control – start his own company, book his own vacation, and yes, even be dominant in the bedroom. ) It’s really easy to see why this kind of guy is attractive. And as much as we’ve evolved as a society in terms of gender equality, there’s still a primal urge where many women long for a taste of a traditional marriage. The nice guys are bland and wishy-washy and don’t turn you on. So if it’s so hard to find one of these mythical beasts, what are you to do? In fact, as one of those men, I’ve got a lot of ideas on that very subject, but before we get to those I have to give you credit for knowing one big thing: you can’t change guys. Your intentions are pure – you want what you want – but the message that you’re sending to him is unmistakable: You can be a leader and make decisions, as long as I have final approval.There is no place in Scripture that places a boyfriend as an authority over a girlfriend—likely because there is no guarantee that this is a permanent relationship.
