And they lived happily ever after.
That’s the dream, isn’t it?
We’re all looking for Prince Charming - the guy who is going to sweep us off our feet and make us feel like we’re the best thing since sliced bread.
But how do you know how right he really is if you haven’t experienced someone really, really wrong?
You need to date the wrong guy, if only to understand how much better your perfect man really is for you.
Think of it this way: You need to be able to make comparisons.
You should date a guy who doesn’t treat you right so you’ll know how you don’t want to be treated.
You should date a guy who puts himself first and doesn’t even rank you in his top five so you know that you should be the priority.
You should date the guy who thinks it’s okay to have lots of girlfriends, so you realize that you should be his one and only.
If you’ve only been with one guy, how will you know that’s really how you deserve to be treated?
How will you understand that not every guy is going to offer you his jacket when you just wore a cardigan?
How will you realize that every single guy doesn’t bring you your favorite kind of latte when he knows that you had to pull an all-nighter?
How will you know that all guys aren’t willing to go the extra mile and get to know your friends and family because they value them as a part of you?
Yeah, you may spend the better part of your younger years on the lookout for Mr. Right, but you’ll never fully appreciate him until you experience Mr. Right Now.
