He Works For Your Love: 5 Reasons To Date Someone As Ambitious As You

My unwavering commitment to school and work has always trumped my social life.

Although I’ve had fewer dates than most, I stand by each one of my decisions to cancel or reschedule romantic rendezvous.

I’ve never been a person who dates just for the thrill of it. The fluttering in my stomach and the undeniable attraction is never enough to draw my attention away from my work.

However, I am much more enticed by a man I could possibly build a life with.

The bad boy has yet to steal my heart for longer than a fleeting fantasy, and I've never fallen for the drifter who doesn’t know where he's going or what he wants.

Some call it picky, but I call it reasonably selective.

I know what I want because I know who I am.

I am hardworking, driven and ambitious woman.

I have a general direction and plan, and I simply want to be with someone who is the same way.

Not only is ambition an incredibly attractive quality for a man to possess, but I also have it.

We'll have similar mindsets, goals and life plans, and our relationship will then be much more likely to work out in the long-term.

Here are the reasons why:

1. He will understand your struggles.

When you’re stressed out about work, he will know how it feels and will understand you really can’t help it.

If you can’t make it to the dinner plans you both have made because you’re stuck at the office, he will never take it personally.

He will know it's normal because he has also had his fair share of late nights.

2. He will cheer you on.

If he is just as motivated as you are, he will know what it feels like to be completely stressed out.

He will be there to support you during times like these, but he will also be there for your victory party after each success, no matter how big or small.

3. He will be mature.

If he has the discipline to go out, tackle the world and fight for the career and life he wants, he will be a mature individual who knows how to get things done.

This maturity and determination will transfer over to your relationship, and he will be determined to make things work with you.

4. He will be attractive.

A man who has his life together is handsome. A man who is deep in concentration is sexy.

Enough said.

5. He will respect you.

Chances are, if he is as motivated as you are, he will admire your work ethic and find it just as enticing as you find his.

With admiration comes respect. This gives your relationship yet another strong leg to stand on.
