Having your house in order is a fancy way of saying you have your sh*t together. People who have their house in order have most likely found their passion in life. They are working at a job they love and have an established, stable career. These are the people who know what they want and have a solid 5 year plan. They have already accomplished much of what they wanted to achieve in life, and have plans implemented for how to achieve the rest. Here are 5 reasons why you should date someone who has their house in order:
1. They Have Ambition
It is usually quite difficult to have your house in order if you lack ambition. Generally, if your house is in order it is because you put in the necessary work it took to get it in order. Therefore, if you’re dating someone who has their sh*t together, it probably means you’re dating someone who is ambitious. Ambition is one of the sexiest qualities out there.
2. They Are Resilient
The road to success is not usually easy. If you are dating someone who seems to have it all figured out, I guarantee you it did not come to them that easily. They probably have been through hard times, and learned a lesson each time they failed at something. Their resilience is a great character trait, something you definitely want to see in a partner.
3. They Are Mature
A certain maturity comes along with having learned all of the lessons it took to get your house in order. Maturity is one of the most important qualities we look for in a significant other, because at the end of the day we don’t want someone who plays games or has no clue what they want. We want someone who has already passed that uncertain stage of their life, and grew up along the way.
4. They Are Goal-Oriented
When you have your house in order, it means that you had goals in mind and the drive to accomplish those goals. A goal-oriented individual is the best kind of person to date. Sometimes, while we are growing up, our mind isn’t set on goals, or on our future. Youthful minds often live in the moment a bit too much instead of thinking about what needs to change for a brighter future.
5. They Are Looking For Someone Who Has Their House In Order, Too
Dating someone who has their house in order is great for your own personal growth, because they inspire you to be the best you can be. They bring out your ambitious side, your resilient side, and help you accomplish your goals. If they have their house in order, they obviously want their partner to have theirs in order too!
