This week Ronnie and I are teaming up to help singles around the globe… or at least the block!
We’ve worked together to create two lists that will hopefully help you find the love that you need and the love that you deserve.
Despite what some people say about wanting to find “the one” to settle down with, their actions don’t match their words. What we’ve realized is that some people are actually running away from the person who is right for them for a multitude of reasons.
Well, we’ve created two lists with ten of the top reasons that this happens just for you.
Check out my list below that tells men 10 reasons you’re trying to run from a good woman.

1. Because You Think You’ll Miss Out On Something 2 of 11
Many men think they'll miss out on freedom, fun with the boys or other things when a good woman "locks" them down. What they don't realize is how much they can truly gain from the love of a good woman.

2. You’re Afraid of What Your Boys Will Say 3 of 11
If you're more worried about what your boys think than what your woman thinks then you're not ready for a mature relationship. It's true that you can't please everyone but if your relationship starts heading towards marriage your woman needs to come before your boys.

3. You’re Buying Into Stereotypes 4 of 11
Some men think all women are gold-diggers who are out to get half of what they have. The problem is, I've heard this ideology even come from men who don't have anything to split in half. A wise man once said, nothing from nothing leaves nothing! Every woman out there is not out to divorce you and take your stuff and if you're not careful you could end up keeping yourself from gaining more than you would ever lose.

4. Because She Requires The Best From You 5 of 11
A great woman will make you better. She'll encourage and inspire you to be your best so you can be the man that she not only needs but deserves. Don't let this scare you off.

5. You Think You Need To Get Yourself Together 6 of 11
While you may want to get yourself together before you move forward or you think you have to get some things straight, don't be afraid to communicate what those things are. Are they items that you can work on together? If you're waiting for the perfect situation you may be frustrated later to find out that the perfect situation never comes and in the meantime you've let a good woman slip away.

6. You’re Afraid of Rejection 7 of 11
You can't hit a home run if you never swing your bat. There are beautiful, smart, intelligent women that you might have a chance with if only you'd make the first move. Women love a man who isn't afraid to step up to the plate. So if you're not doing this already, make sure you start now!

7. You Haven’t Seen Successful Relationships Around You 8 of 11
Don't be discouraged by what you see or what you hear about marriage and relationships. Just because other people are getting divorced doesn't mean you will too. If divorce concerns you then make sure you equip yourself as well as possible. Make sure you solidify your relationship by using communication and marital education tools to fight the risk.

8. Because You Expect Too Much 9 of 11
Are you looking for a video vixen in the bedroom, a CPA to balance the household finances, a supermodel for date night, and Claire Huxtable to raise your kids? If you are, you better ask yourself how you measure up in those same areas. Setting realistic expectations is an important component of every marriage and long term relationship. So figure out what's important and get real.

9. You Don’t Want Her To Change You 10 of 11
Yes there are some people who think they can change you but change can be a good thing in some cases. You should always be striving to be your best you, especially if marriage and children come into the picture. So don't be afraid of change. Embrace it as long as you're changing for the better.

10. You Think You Already Have It All 11 of 11
You may think you already have it all. She's already doing everything you could ask for so what difference does a piece of paper make? The paper represents your covenant with God and your wife. It shows her that you are willing to commit to her and that you have no intentions of leaving or not giving your best in the relationship.
