Women will always be an enigma to men out there far and wide. Loving them in a partnership can turn out to be the best thing that happened to you, but how can you know in advance that this woman means business with your future together?
Here’s a few pointers to know you’ve probably got a good thing going.
She Laughs at Your Jokes
Your jokes probably aren’t as good as you think they are, but as long as she thinks you’re hilarious, you’re golden. Laughter can heal pretty much anything, so this is a very important basis for your relationship.
She Accepts You The Way You Are
This may seem like an obvious one, but many people end up in relationships where their partner “molds” them into a brand-new person. She needs to love you for who you are, not for who you could be after years of intensive work.
She Trusts You
There’s no room for love in a relationship where everyone is constantly second-guessing each other. Your partner needs to trust you and trust in your actions. Why bother starting a relationship if you don’t in the first place, right?
She Can Deal With Your Flaws
Everyone’s flawed and most people are just a minor flaw away from damaged goods, so make sure that your partner is aware of these flaws and can deal with them. Sure, leaving your socks everywhere may not seem like a big dealbreaker at first, but will she still cope once the 150th sock has been found?
She Inspires You
This kind of speaks for itself. You don’t want to be in a relationship with a partner where you look at her and go “Jesus, she’s boring.” Find someone that inspires you and motivates you to be the best person you can be.
She Makes You Feel Free
You know what’s not a fun relationship? Life in prison. Having a partner doesn’t mean that you’re now suddenly joined at the hip, nor does it mean that you should be. If you can be in a relationship and still be yourself, that’s a good sign.
She Respects Family and Friends
You don’t just start a relationship with your partner, you start one with their loved ones too. Make sure there’s mutual respect between friends, family and the woman of your dreams and everything will work out fine.
She is a Safe Haven
There’s nothing quite like a woman that’s there for you when you need her the most. It’s easy to be in love when everything is peachy, but your partner needs to be someone you can count on when things get rough.
