Definitely Worth Waiting For

Ok, so it’s been a long time, I know. I have been away, getting my ducks lined up for Valentine’s Day. Yep, that’s the day the book comes out, and everyone can get so much more insight on ways to enhance your relationship, “for singles.” I’m so excited to finally get the complete message out. I want to share the wisdom I have been led to give with everyone, so we can stop finding some of the potholes we tend to gravitate towards in relationships, unfortunately over and over again. Not anymore, now we’re going to make some better choices, to get some better results! That’s what the 9 Tenets are about.

So I was just talking to a friend about a good friend of hers. She was telling me that her homegirl is dating a guy a few years younger than her. He left town for a while and during the time he was away, he changed his photo on Facebook to a picture of him with another girl. Well, this left the original girl upset, and when he returned to town, she then wanted to “define” the relationship. In her heart, the relationship was already defined, she simply needed confirmation.

My friend made a great point…at this point it was too late to do what should have been done from the beginning. They had been intimate, and now her heart was showing on her sleeve and she wanted a commitment. The relationship soured and since he held out for a while, now they are back…not back together mind you, they never were together. They are back to the “intimate” relationship with no strings attached. The girl obviously wants more, but all she knows to do is to wait for him, and let him do what he wants to do until he is ready to commit to her.

Ladies, this is why you are definitely worth waiting for. Now her heart is caught up in the situation. If she would have realized commitment (and in my opinion, marriage) precedes sexual intimacy, then she would have waited. She wouldn’t be emotionally trapped in a bad situation. I hope she takes her friend’s advice to look at the situation without the blinders of her emotion involved, but right now, it’s hard to remove her from the situation. Put a price on your self-worth, ladies…you are worth waiting for, and if you make him wait, he will appreciate you more in the long run as well.

So happy to be back on the blog…until next time!

The book is available now for presale orders at
