If you search the popular hashtag #Goals or #RelationshipGoal on basically any form of social media you will see a slue of images of expensive or extravagant things that boyfriends have given their girlfriends. You will see pictures of couples traveling the world together and living "the dream." And Im sure if you are a girl in this generation you will probably be saying something like, "wow, I can't wait to find a guy that spoils me like that" or maybe "I wish my boyfriend did that with me"
Gifts and expensive things are nice don't get me wrong. But for some reason we fail to realize that we deserve more than the expensive things that a boy could buy you. I'm here to tell you that you deserve real "goals" ones that you have been dreaming of since you were a little girl. The "goals" that shouldn't cost a dime. The Relationship Goals that you should be searching for are things like...
A man who is loyal to you.
A man who loves you for exactly who you are.
Someone who encourages you and supports you through every step of your life - even the messy parts.
A guy who sees you as an equal in the relationship.
A guy who knows how important your family is to you and works hard to be apart of that family and he wants you to be in his.
A man who loves you when you wake up in the morning with messy hair just as much as he loves you all dolled up on date night.
A man who respects you and the decisions you makes - both together and apart/
Someone who never lets you go to bed upset.
A guy who is willing to fight for you through the bad days and the good one.
A man who does the little things to show you how much he loves you.
Someone who never stops romancing you.
Someone who loves the Lord and makes that the center of your relationship.
As women of this generation it is important that we remember what type of guy that we want and most importantly deserve to come into our lives. Please never sell yourself short of what you deserve in a relationship. You deserve more than that the pictures on social media of what is portrayed as "goals" you deserve to be in a relationship with someone who seems like dating your best friend. But I urge you not to settle please. The right one for you will come along and when he does you will know why other relationships never worked in the past. But it is gonna take time, you can't rush perfection. Let things fall into place as the Lord has planned. But please do not base what you want in a relationship by what you see on social media. Because I promise you that $200 makeup pallet he bought her on social media will eventually run out but the right guy who loves you for you will be there forever.
