Or vise versa.
Ugly but true. Do not try to make someone realize that they might be ready when they clearly aren’t. Why? Because you’re wasting time and effort and you’re just digging your own grave for when that person realizes that he wants to take a step back. It is very easy to convince yourself that maybe, just maybe if you showed him how great it can be to have someone like you, all of a sudden he will drop everything and put you on top… Of everything.
Things just do not work that way. You can’t blame him or yourself. Everybody is different. It doesn’t matter how beautiful you are, and it doesn’t matter if you have the biggest heart in the world. If someone is not ready to settle, they won’t. And they shouldn’t.
