Are you shopping for a Man… like shopping for a car?
Recently I was thinking about replacing my Lexus, with my dream car. I went to a couple of my favorite dealerships: Lexus and Mercedes.
I knew exactly what I wanted for my dream car. It’s a short list:
A 4-seat hybrid convertible, with air and automatic, and a light-colored interior.
While I was at the dealerships, it occurred to me that shopping for a car is a lot like “shopping” for a man.
Some women have told me they are making a list of what they want in a man. The theory is that a list will activate the Law of Attraction and help them manifest what they want.
There is some wisdom in this, because it never hurts to get clear about what you want.
You can search online or at the “dealerships.”
Maybe you want something hot and sexy, or perhaps a sportier model?
Maybe it’s power that turns you on, or perhaps reliability is high on your list?
But it occurs to me there is a potential flaw in this “shopping list theory.”
If the purpose of the car, (or your mate) is an enjoyable long-term ride, then there’s a missing component.
Let’s say you want to drive from San Diego to New Orleans, so you buy a powerful and sexy Mercedes convertible.
Your ability to make the journey enjoyable will depend on more than the vehicle, you need to check a map, get directions, add a back-up plan (like AAA) and you need excellent driving skills!
The same preparation and planning is also true for an enjoyable relationship.
You can find a great “model” of an Ideal Man.
Every bride thinks she’s found the RIGHT man for the long-term journey!
There’s lots of preparation for the wedding … but very little for the marriage.
With a 67% divorce rate…it’s obvious many women lack the essential components for a great ride.
Your journey will roll more smoothly over the “bumps in the road” if you know how to manage Boundaries, build trust, handle feelings, and have great communication skills.
So, before you commit to that hot & sexy model, or even to a more practical reliable model, get the essential relationship skills!
With excellent relationship skills, I manifested my Ideal Man 26 years ago and we’re having a GREAT journey, because we have the skills to handle relationship challenges!
As for replacing my Lexus, my sweetheart recently bought a 2-seat convertible with air and automatic.
We’re enjoying the heck out of it! (see picture above)
