By- Shreya Sharma

When we date a guy, we are so blind by the love that we think he is the perfect one and start daydreaming about our future together; but we need to be careful because there is a difference between the guy we date and the man we marry.  It does not mean you should ditch the guy, people change so he deserves a chance, but if you find no change in the guy you are dating, it is better to dump him rather than making the situation worse. Before planning to settle down, you got to know the difference between the boy and man. Here are 15 differences between the boy you date and the man you marry.
