Family means a lot to them.
If you have noticed a good number of dating profiles where women mention that “family is important to them,” it is often because they want a guy that they date to understand this.
They want whoever visits their dating profile to understand that if they were to date, family will be a big part of their relationship.
In other words, they want that person to know that if they are looking to date them, they will also be spending quality time with family and not just her.
It is not so much that these women are “advertising” that they are family-oriented and that is all that they care about when it comes to relationships.
It is just that they know that family is a big part of their lives.
Hence, if a guy that meets them on an online dating site were to start dating them, that guy is also going to be around her family often.
She wants the guy to know that she comes as a package.
There are some guys who want to spend a large majority of their time with the woman that they are dating and no one else.
Indeed some of these women that “advertise” that they are family-oriented on their dating profiles may have dated or even married guys in the past who didn’t want to have much of a relationship with their family after dating or being married to them for a while.
These men may have given these women the impression that they were family-oriented when they first started courting them.
This may have been a quality that really impressed her and allowed her to give him a chance to court her.
However, upon getting into relationships with these men, some of these women may have come to realize that they weren’t being truthful about being family-oriented.
The men were no longer putting out the effort to get to know her family members.
The men were no longer wanting to hang out with those family members and would give an excuse as to why they couldn’t make it to a family event.
This may have been some of the experiences that these women who “advertise” that they are family-oriented in their dating profiles have had.
They may have become despondent over the fact that these men were merely telling them that they were family-oriented just to win them over.
They learn from this experience and decide to state that they are family-oriented in order to forewarn any guy that visits their dating profile.
Yes, they also want to be a part of the guy’s family and get to know his relatives.
Oftentimes, this is how a woman is able to tell what kind of guy she is dating.
In being able to get to know his family and hang out with them, she is able to tell whether she is dealing with a guy who will be a trustworthy long-term partner.
Now, the fact that these women “advertise” that they are family-oriented doesn’t mean that you have to be as close to your family as they are to theirs.
However, they want you to know that regardless of how close or aloof you are with your family, her family is going to be a constant presence in your relationship with her.
You will have to be okay with that if you hope to date her, especially over the long-term.
