Have you ever heard someone tell you, “You need to take the word “can’t” out of your vocabulary”?
The problem with that is, if you take one word out of your vocabulary you must replace it with another. This is especially true in relationships. If a man tells me that he can’t do something, then I expect him to tell me what it is that he can do instead. This is what I’m talking about –
I can’t take you out on a fancy date BUT
I can cook you a nice meal.
I can’t cook very well BUT
I can order from somewhere nice.
I can’t offer you deeply stimulating conversation BUT
I can find current topics to discuss to keep you engaged.
I can’t introduce to my family right now BUT
I can bring you around my friends so you can start to get to know the people who are close to me.
I can’t take you on a nice vacation BUT
I can save so we can take a nice trip another time.
I can’t buy you nice things now BUT
I can compliment your taste and let you know that I think you’re deserving of the finer things in life.
Ladies, what are some other “can” statements that you’d like to hear?
