What are the qualities you look for in a lifetime partner?
When I was younger, I preferred a good-looking face, humor, and outgoing personality. As I grow in the Lord and get older, things changed! Men who have Christ-like attitude, smart, responsible, and lovingly understanding became more attractive to me. I have developed this sense of preference because God is teaching me so. I want a loving husband who my future children could look up to and be proud of.
There’s no denying of a fact that nowadays, some men and women prioritize something else when looking for an ideal partner. For some, those who can give them anything and everything they want –a lavish lifestyle (for women) or a beautiful body (for men), etc.). For this reason, they tend to check bank accounts or dimensions of a person’s body first before knowing their personality and character.
So with this short story.
A poor boy loved a rich girl. One day the boy proposed to her and the girl said, “Hey! Listen, your monthly salary is my daily hand expenses. How can I be involved with you? How could you have thought of that? I can never love you. So, forget about me & get engaged to someone else at your level”. But somehow the boy could not forget her so easily.
Sometime 10 years later, they stumbled into each other in a shopping mall. The lady said, “Hey! You! How are you? Now I’m married and do you know how much my husband’s salary is? $1,700 per month! Can you believe that? And he is also very smart.” The guy’s eyes got wet with tears on hearing those words. A few seconds later, her husband came but before the lady could say a word, her husband seeing the guy, said, “Sir you’re here? Meet my wife.” Then he said to his wife, “This is my boss, I’m also one of those working on his $100 million project. And do you know a fact my dear? My boss loved a lady but he couldn’t win her heart. That’s why he has remained unmarried. How lucky would that lady have been if she had married him. These days, who will love someone that much he said to his wife. The lady looked in total shock but couldn’t utter a word.©
[But for the sake of my future children, let me add financial stability on my list 😀 😀 ]
Lesson: Life is so short and it’s just like a mirror. You can only see as much as it reflects. So don’t be too arrogant and proud of yourself by looking down on people because situations change with time.
So, let us not under estimate anyone.. because everyone has a potential ^_^
