Are you here because you’ve made the conscious choice to shift your dating profile from “Casual” to “Serious”? 

The era of endless swiping and juggling multiple partners has come to an end.

You aim to discover that extraordinary woman who will accompany you through life. 

However, it’s no easy task. 

Society’s constant noise is overwhelming, bombarding you with messages that label your decision a mistake. 

This divisiveness spreads across various platforms like Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, radio, and television.

Here’s my advice: instead of getting caught up in the noise, focus on what you truly desire

The propaganda may or may not turn out to be true, but don’t let fear dictate your life.

Relationships require effort, and while some succeed, others fail. 

I’ve experienced a failed marriage but still desire a lifelong partner. 

Stay true to yourself because she is waiting for you. 

Okay — let's get started. 

Without further ado, here are the three key boundaries you need for long-term love. 

1. Independence:

Consider this carefully. 

Seriously man, take a moment to reflect on it. 

Women are attracted to qualities such as confidence, stability, self-reliance, and a man’s independence

Maintaining personal independence is crucial for a long-term relationship to succeed. 

Avoid losing yourself in an attempt to please her; it’s a no-win situation. 

She desires and requires an independent partner, just as you do. 

Respect her individuality as she is her person. 

Both of you should encourage and support each other’s personal growth.

Find a balance where you can complement each other’s careers, lives, and aspirations. 

Break free from suffocating expectations and establish emotional boundaries that allow for space and independence. 

Pursue your hobbies, maintain friendships outside the relationship, and value your alone time. 

Of course, it’s important to strike a balance in all of this. 

Prioritizing time with her is important if you envision a lifelong partnership. If you find yourself ignoring her or lacking desire, you might not be ready for a committed, long-term relationship.

2. Personal Ambitions:

The key to a strong relationship is supporting each other’s dreams. 

It’s important to set clear boundaries on the time and energy invested in our individual goals, making sure they complement rather than overshadow the relationship. 

For instance, I deliberately wake up early to focus on my aspirations, which may vary depending on what I consider important at that time. 

Currently, my priorities are writing, reading, and exercising. 

I allocate 1–2 hours a day for my long-term goals, and it’s crucial to communicate to my partner that I need this time. 

It’s reasonable to assume that she also has her aspirations, which could be spending quality time reading a book or pursuing her faith, among other things.

Whatever her goals may be, it’s essential to respect and support them as well.

Brandon’s opinion — your values and beliefs will not change much over your life but your aspirations will ebb and flow. 

3. Intimacy:

It’s time to step up. 

Take charge of your role as a man and openly express your desires and preferences when it comes to physical affection, intimacy, and sexuality. 

In any successful relationship, intimacy is crucial, but often traditional norms overlook individual preferences and comfort levels. 

However, when you communicate your likes and preferences, you may be pleasantly surprised by her response. 

She will either wholeheartedly embrace your desires or she won’t, and that’s the beauty of setting boundaries.

Knowing yourself and your wants makes it easier to make decisions about a life partner. 

Of course, this dynamic isn’t simple, and both of you must understand each other’s needs. 

It’s also important to recognize that neither of you will always be able to meet those needs completely, which is why understanding boundaries is essential. 

One last note — if she starts disrespecting your boundaries — this is a clear sign something relationship-wise has changed. 

Once again — be a man and take charge. 

In conclusion, maintain your independence, pursue your aspirations, and communicate your intimacy needs. 

Hope this helped!

Love y’all. 

Happy reading,
