8 Signs To Know If Your Guy Is a Keeper.

Updated on April 9, 2012

8 Signs To Know If Your Guy Is a Keeper.

>>>> 1...He's prepared to place you first. Once a man is genuinely dedicated to you, and your relationship is steering for the long-run, he'll make you an essential part of his day-to-day life, also a uppermost priority. A keeper will constantly demonstrate that he loves you and is dedicated to the relationship, both verbally and how he treats you.

>>>> 2...He'll be there by your side in a crisis...A keeper will be prepared to do whatever it takes to stand by your side when the going becomes tough. By demonstrating that he stands with you in your time of real need, his actions tell you he'll be there to hold your hand during the delivery of your children, the deaths of your parents an any other high-level strain or heartache ridden situations that you're certain to go through.

>>>> 3...He values your oddities...A good man will love with you because he treasures your gifts and is conformable to omit any flaws. But a keeper will even love you for your quirkier qualities...Devout reading of your and his horoscopes or your bad habit of using the same spoon to take some jam from the jar and eat it...Not simply endure but accept it.

>>>> 4...He demonstrates daily to you how much he cares...The most crucial component of any relationship is how the man you're thinking about spending the rest of your life with...Treats you. I'm not necessarily speaking about him giving you bouquets of red roses [although that's a good jester] but by demonstrating to you that he cares about your well being also...Things like making sure your tires are properly inflated...Or by sending you an text  wishing you luck on your interview at work.


>>>> 5...He's thoughtful...Ever since I was a kid, I've been told that actions speak louder than words. This is never more truthful than in how your man behaves  toward you and other people. A keeper is an altogether nice person. He's respectful to his parents [and yours] courteous to waiters and waitresses and kind hearted toward animals. And he behaves charitable even when he believes nobody is watching...A real mark of good character.

>>>> 6...He's self-consistent towards you...Similar to number 5, a keeper is trustworthy...A man who you'll be able to really rely upon. Although all people change throughout the courses of their lives, a man you would desire to have around for the long haul isn't namby-pamby. His word should be firmer than steel, as the phrase goes, and his loving behavior toward you should be just as firm.

>>>> 7...He's willing and able to handle your emotions...I consider it's safe and sound to say that women have a track record of showing our emotions a lot more than our male opposite. And aforesaid men will need to recognize how to handle our doing so in order to be viewed as a possible long term partner. A keeper will never attack you for being excessively emotional by accusing you of being [ like his mother].

>>>> 8...He's a fully grown Man and behaves as such...Along the road from baby to grownup, a few guys stall out along the way, never really becoming self-sustaining. An immature man who resists the norms and values of society doesn't see juvenility as a stage but instead a sanctuary from his obligations. A keeper, on the other hand, isn't simply capable but confident in successfully handling his own life.

      I really agree with you, however, it seems the expectations are rather high. Who has ever met a paragon like the one you describe????? Most people, both men and women, are a little more flawed than that. Good luck to you, and I did enjoy reading this. You write well.
