Ladies, it's no secret that dating can be daunting at times. We all want to be with someone who loves us, supports us, and cherishes us unconditionally. However, in the process of searching for love, we may find ourselves settling for less than we deserve. It's important to understand what we should expect from a potential partner. Let's talk action, time and listening for starters. I think these three things are crucial if he is serious about having a relationship with you.

One of the key ways a man can demonstrate that he values you is by showing you through his actions. His actions should match his words. A man can tell you he loves you all day long. But it is his actions that will prove it. His actions should make you feel loved and appreciated, and shows that he is willing to prioritize your feelings and priorities. For instance, if you need him to be there for a big event in your life, he should make it a priority to show up and be present.
2. MAKING TIME
If a man is interested in you, he will make time for you. Busy schedules may sometimes come in the way, but the right man will work around them to ensure that you remain a priority. If he can't make time for you, he's not worth your time. Now, this doesn't mean that he needs to be available 24/7. That's not realistic. It means that he should be willing to carve out time in his schedule to spend with you. A man who is interested in you wants to spend time with you. He wants to text you. He wants to talk to you. He will make time to do so.
A man who values you will listen to you actively and communicate with you honestly and openly. A good listener is someone who will work to understand you better and ensure that your voice is heard. Open and honest communication is critical in building a healthy and sustainable relationship. A man who is open and honest with you at all times will allow you to trust him and give him a chance.
In order to have a healthy and fulfilling relationship, you should expect a certain level of commitment and dedication from your partner. If a man can’t show you with consistent action that your needs are essential, make time for you daily, and communicate effectively, then he's wasting your time and he probably doesn't respect your feelings. Listen to your intuition and watch for the signs that illustrate genuine interest in you. There are other signs but these are three basic things you should be seeing from him.
