Hold On To The Man Who Keeps You Accountable

Good, genuine guys do exist and get pushed away so often because they do what all men should do, they keep you accountable. So often women like to say there are no good guys out there, but the truth is they actually are out there and they had one but let him go. A man doing what he is supposed to do is so rare today that when it actually happens, it freaks women out, makes them feel disrespected, and makes them think he is controlling. The number one job for a man is to lead his partner, which includes keeping them accountable, questioning their motives, and challenging them to better themselves. It is 100% okay for a man to do what he is supposed to do. In no way is accountability, questioning, or challenging a disrespectful or controlling thing as long as it is done with the right intent behind it. If a man keeps you accountable it means he is making sure you are taking on the role you stepped into when you created this relationship or marriage. If a man questions you it means that he is making sure you are making the best decisions with the best motives behind them. If a man challenges you he is doing it because he wants you to be your best and do your best; not for him but for you.

Men, if a woman cannot handle you acting the way men are intended to in the relationship, she is not ready for a good relationship. A good relationship is not one where you do your own thing with no accountability, a good relationship is one full of accountability and constant moments of keeping each other in check; a good relationship is one where you base every decision you make off of how it will affect the relationship and both of you. This is exactly how my relationship is right now and it is the best relationship I have ever had. I have had multiple relationships in the past where there was no accountability, my motives and choices were not questioned, and I was never challenged to do better; those relationships were very toxic and did a lot of damage to me. In today's world, it is very hard for a man to be accepted as a good genuine guy doing what he is supposed to do because men like that are beginning to become degraded, shamed, and made to be the bad guy. There is a difference between a good, genuine man and a rude, controlling man. A good, genuine man cares about the other person and does the things he does based off of how it will make them better; a rude, controlling man cares about only himself and does the things he does based off of how it will make him better. The quicker women learn the difference, the quicker the good, genuine men can be given a chance instead of sent away.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
