What exactly does the age old phrase ‘Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free’ mean? Have you ever dated a man and no matter what great lengths you went through to prove that you were worthy of being in a committed relationship with him, he still wouldn’t make you his official woman? Did you ever consider that maybe you tried a little too hard? Continue reading below to find out what we mean.
You’ve cooked, cleaned, given yourself to him mentally and physically, took interest in things he enjoys, have been supportive, and done almost everything you could think of to win him over but for some reason you’re still losing! Unfortunately for some of us, we do a little too much to prove ourselves to a man. Although it’s nice to show a man the great qualities you embody, he’s only supposed to get a sample of what you have to offer so don’t feed him a full plate and pack him leftovers then expect him to want more. Why would he buy the cow when he can get the milk for free?
Take into consideration that if it progresses into a monogamous relationship, you both might become bored quickly because there isn’t much about you for him to look forward to. When you think about it, the joy about relationships is learning each other but what is there left to know if you’ve already told and shown him everything? Leave a little mystery to keep your future lover interested. Also, before you get wrapped up in trying to showcase your qualities; be sure he is as well. Is his effort matching yours? Effort shows interest so if it isn’t there then don’t waste your time. Lastly, before you even begin to consider putting your best foot forward for a man, make sure he’s worthy of your energy and emotions! Everyone you date won’t be qualified for your special treatment, some just apply for the position because they can.
