Some people celebrate you and all you have to offer.
Other people see you as a point to hit on their pathway.
How can you tell if someone you are talking to or dating, male, female or otherwise, values you and is invested versus fulfilling a need in the meantime?
I think it’s pretty clear, but in my twenties, I got sidetracked by a lot of men that were clearly not in it for the long haul, and I wasted good time sweating silly boys. As an adult, I really am pretty good at seeing someone’s true colors, so I always like to advise younger people who are learning. I know I appreciated my wise friends when I was clueless and naive, although I didn’t always listen to reason.
Here are some differences between people who are invested versus people who see you as a way to fulfill their needs:
Someone Who Is Invested, Celebrates You
The person who values you, is invested in you. That person celebrates your job promotions. Your business investments. Your mini life wins, too, like getting a winning $10 lotto ticket.
The person who is invested, wants to be by your side to celebrate all the victories in your life.
