The gorgeous Paula Patton is on the cover of the latest issue of Rolling Out magazine and the actress is letting ladies in on the secret to finding Mr. Right and how to keep your marriage going strong. Here are noteworthy exerts from her interview:
Is it better for a woman to wait for Mr. Right?
“That’s where we need to go as women is to find some comfort in that. The moment we stop looking and caring, they all come flocking when you’re not looking.”
Why is it important to be open and prepared to receive Mr. Right?
“I am so glad that I am in a relationship or I would be messed up. Only people who love you can tell you “you know it’s annoying when you do this” and “you need to stop saying this when you are out in public.” It helps you grow as a human being. Hopefully, you enter the relationship open and ready to learn and this person who tells you there are some flaws you need to work on, you should listen. That’s what I love about my relationship and it has made be a better human being.”
What’s the best marriage advice you can offer?
“It’s a marathon; it’s not a sprint. As women, we get caught up in that day when you get to be a princess. When that day is over, you’re like, wait, hold on a second! What just happened? Do I even want to sleep with this person? That’s why marriage is beautiful. The longer it [lasts], that’s someone who loves you inside and out, loves you for all your flaws.”
What’s the secret to making it last?
“It’s about being yourself, loving yourself and finding that person who loves you just the way you are. Who doesn’t like to see people go on a journey, travel everywhere?”
