Date with a man who is smiling. Date a guy who spends his time improving both emotionally and physically. He may have problems with time because he has an insatiable thirst for life, and for life itself.
Date a man who has a list of things he wants to learn about himself, about the world around him, and about others.
Find a man who smiles.
The smiling man is a man who chases his dreams.
You will know because he will tell you what he wants from his experience on this planet and what he would like for others.
He’s the one who hooks up with people he’s just met and asks them with curious interest what they’re doing in their life and then delves into the conversation without trumping them with anything he’s doing right now.
Do you see the guy listening to the conversation with a grin on his face?
He’s the right guy. He always learns from what others have learned, and he loves hearing about your experiences. Even if it’s something he couldn’t do or achieve, he’ll enjoy it vicariously without feeling threatened, offended, or insecure.
He’s the guy who tries new things, watches others try new things, and enjoys both.
If you stop to talk to him, he’ll tell you about a new book he’s read, a new place he’s been to, or a new class he’s taking. He is lost in his lust for life and for life. He realizes that he has a limited amount of time and wants to make the most of it.
Invite him for a cup of coffee and listen to his stories. You will find that he listens to yours with as much enthusiasm as he tells you his.
Ask him if he’s a foodie or a traveler. Ask him if he enjoys watching sports or doing sports himself. Find out what is more fun for him: learning a new language or taking guitar lessons. His answer to all of these questions will be a resounding “yes”.
It’s easy to date a man who smiles. Give him your time because it is the perfect gift – he cannot grow out of it, lose it, or change it, but he will always remember it. Play cards and chat with him. Drinking coffee. Watch a movie. Take a walk Discuss a current event or book. Go with him through a crowded market; he will start conversations with others just to learn about them, and you will learn about each other at the same time.
But there is no pressure to participate in these conversations. He learns and grows because he has to, but he will never hold it against you if you are not on his schedule or on his way. He is simply driven to learn them, have experienced, and enjoy the people around him.
If you make a mistake, he will accept it – and smile. He knows that people are imperfect because neither is he. He acknowledges his mistakes, so he won’t hold yours against you. If you let him down, he may be disappointed, but everything will be fine and he will smile.
He knows that failure comes with experience and learning and that one can try again and again.
He is a master of empathy. Through all of this, he knows how to run a mile in your shoes without wasting time judging you. He understands that over time people assume their own potential and that they have their own schedule.
If you find a man who smiles, don’t let him go. He will be involved in several things, they will learn and grow. You could lose him to his passion for a short while, but he will always come back to you. He’ll want to share what he’s doing – with you – and he’ll want to hear about everything you do too.
He could propose to you by video chat, at a concert where his voice screams above the noise, by the pool with a margarita in hand, or strolling through a busy downtown area. He is passion incarnate, and when his love reaches that level it will be uncontrollable. She’ll burst to get out.
You’ll smile and laugh as you’ve never done before, and your eyes will curl up into slits of happiness.
Date a man who smiles because you deserve it.
As a woman, you have a right to all of the happiness, energy, passion, longing and laughter that life can give you. If you’re looking for a dramatic existence or an untested life, you’re better off with another type of man.
But if you want a life that is fiery and full of joy, date a man who smiles.
