Why I'll Marry a fighter

It would seem that fighting for a girl has become a lost art, at least among most men that I know. You meet a guy, things are going good, and then, inevitably, something gets in the way. Distance. Work. School. Fear.
There are an endless number of reasons that relationships get difficult. Most boys cut and run the moment things aren't all sunshine and roses.
Here's the problem. One, then no relationships happen. Second, most of us girls, we've met a fighter once in our lives. Someone who fought for us, or our friend who has fought for someone else.
Do you even know how many points you get for fighting for a girl? I'm not talking creepy, stalker, she doesn't want to see you anymore kind of fighting. I'm talking, things got harder than normal fighting.
It is incredibly attractive to have a man that thinks you're worth fighting for.
I am used to being fought for. I know what it's like to have someone that was willing to drive 4 hours to see me for roughly that amount of time. I know what it's like to have a man fight through my insecurities to get to know me. I know what it's like.
If you fight for me, I'll fight right back.
I have missed classes, sleep, friends, to be with someone that was willing to fight for me.

Not only is this important for dating, I'll marry a fighter because I believe in Eternal Marriage. Relationships and marriage are not easy. It isn't always rosy. It isn't always perfect, and I'm not always easy to love. I know that, and I know that I'll need someone that is willing to fight to stay with me. Someone who will fight to love me. It's a choice, they need to be the kind of person who will keep making that choice. Fight to make that choice when it isn't easy.

Fight for your girls. Fight for your men. It's worth it.
