7 Signs Your Partner Isn’t Settling; His Love Is Real

Settling isn’t always a bad thing. But it’s always good to have a guy who loves you for who you really are.

What is this concept of settling? Well, it happens all too often in the lives and relationships of people around us, we should at least familiarize ourselves with the concept. We all dream of having an amazing kind of love. We all want that for ourselves. But sometimes, the love that we have in our mind doesn’t exactly match up to the love that we’re given in real life. Sometimes, that’s okay. Ad sometimes, it isn’t. It’s only ever really okay if your expectations were already unreasonably high to begin with.


You have to understand that reality is never going to be like they make it out to be in the movies. And that’s something that all mature adults who are getting into relationships need to grasp by now. And it’s only through experiencing the reality of relationships where they really discover that their standards were unreasonable and they need to settle for whatever reality has to offer them. In that sense, settling isn’t so bad. But there is a bad kind of settling; the kind that can breed toxicity and dysfunction in a relationship.


It’s when a person is so desperate to be in any kind of relationship, that they choose to just jump on to any kind of relationship that they can – regardless of how the relationship makes them feel. They are so afraid of being single that they will cling to the first person who gives them the least bit of attention. And you never want that for yourself. You don’t want that kind of partner. You don’t want someone who is only settling for being with you because they can’t have what they really want.

So how do you make sure that you’re actually with someone who isn’t just settling for you? And why is that important? Well, it’s important because you want to make sure that you have someone who loves you for who you really are – someone who isn’t just treating you like some kind of placeholder until someone better comes along. And it’s easy to spot if a person’s feelings for you are real or not. It’s all a matter of being perceptive and observant in your relationship.
