I came across an image on Pinterest that stated, don’t marry the man that gives you butterflies. I want to call B.S. on this image. The media is teaching women to search for men they are comfortable with instead of men that excite them. I do not agree with this philosophy. Here are my reasons why I believe you should definitely marry the man that gives you butterflies.
Excitement is important in a relationship
Let’s be honest, we all get bored with simple things. We seek excitement and adrenaline. If your relationship is not filled with excitement, it will fail. If your partner fails to give you those butterflies each time you see them, it could lead to you seeking it elsewhere.
The honeymoon phase does not have to be short term
It is believed that the euphoric phase of a relationship is just in the first year, but it doesn’t have to be. If someone really loves you, they will do whatever it takes to make you happy. They will keep trying to impress you which will keep the euphoria around. As long as two people are really trying to keep the spark in their relationship, the butterflies will not diminish.
You should be taking risks sometimes
Life is fun and you should be living it. If you have a choice between a man who gives you butterflies and a man who is nice to you and makes you feel comfortable, definitely choose the first option. Taking risks will help you enjoy life more. So maybe your relationship won’t last forever, but you will be so much happier knowing that you took that risk.
Remember, relationships don’t make you the person that you are. So don’t choose to be with someone because of the lifestyle they can provide you. It’s okay to choose happiness.
