Wait for the right man because you are a valuable woman!

Women are often put under pressure to get married and start families by a certain age or stage of life. Those who spend too long being single often involuntarily develop a stigma. But it’s much better to make sure you end up with the right guy rather than just any guy.

Because of the feelings single women get when they see their friends around them falling in love and starting new lives with the men who have swept them away, they, too, sometimes develop stronger desires to have those things in their own lives, whether it’s for security and happiness, or seeking fulfillment and general success. Some women even find themselves settling for men they might not have ended up with if they didn’t feel like it was simply time for them to walk down the aisle.

Some women forget just how valuable and precious they are in their attempts to find happiness—but every woman deserves a hero.

A hero who is worth the wait.

According to an article in the Washington Post from March of this year, since 1980, the divorce rate in the United States has risen by 40 percent. Obviously, marriages aren’t working out as much as people would prefer or expect them to, but that doesn’t mean that things can’t change. Sometimes a person—especially a woman—can get so caught up in wanting a wedding that she often forgets that a marriage comes after that. It’s not just a big day to celebrate with family and friends; it’s a lifetime commitment to another individual.

Make sure that individual is actually the man you want to wake up beside for the rest of your life.

Sure, not every single relationship is going to end in marriage, but as women get older, the idea of dating so much gets tiring. The concept of becoming a wife and not a girlfriend sounds more like what women want. While not every man is going to open your car door every single time you get in the passenger side (and you probably don’t want him to do so, anyway), remember that chivalry is not dead.

You still deserve to be treated like the respectable woman you were made to be.

There’s no set timeline for when a woman has to meet the right man. Every single person in this world is different. One woman might find her Prince Charming while she’s in college, and another might not meet him until after she’s hit 30 or—even more intimidating to some—after she’s had her over-the-hill party when she turned 40. But age doesn’t have to be a factor for finding love. Your timeline might turn out differently than you dreamed it would be when you were a little girl watching fairytale movies or dreaming about your future.

And there is nothing wrong with that.

No man is perfect (nor is any woman, for that matter), but there is someone out there who is perfect for you. So wait for him. He’s worth it.

And so are you.
