While I’m not especially happy with my long-term single status, I’m still not to the point where I’m desperate and hopefully will never get there. However, the older I’ve gotten and the longer I’ve remained single, there are some things that I’ve decided to cross off of my “mandatory man” checklist and opt for more obtainable traits.

Basically, I’ve decided not to be so darn picky; but let’s not get it twisted. While I am open to re-evaluating my checklist, there are some things that are simply not up for compromise. And while every woman will have her own set of non-compromising things, we all need them to ensure we don’t lose ourselves in a relationship or set ourselves up for disaster.  Here are a few things that I believe should never be compromised for the sake of a relationship.

    Men respect women who stand for something. I’ve seen women give up their core values with the quickness for a man. I think that is one of the biggest mistakes a woman can make. I can see bending your “rules” (i.e. 90-day for sex rule) but you should never abandon your values (i.e. marriage before kids) for anyone.


    funny how when a women gets pregnant men have to make many of these sacrifices… yall a trip

      When a woman gets pregnant, she’s given you the gift of her body that will never be the same, and another human being. You should compromise your life for her. Yeah, you heard right.
