Sorry, little girls, but this fairytale fantasy just isn't real life but, we can let you in on some little secrets to secure your happiness with your significant other. Without further ado, check out these fifteen qualities that will let you know to never let him go.
If he's not afraid to roll up his sleeves and get to work at any instance whether it be in the physical or mental realm, you might want to keep him around. Hard-working qualities in men are hard to find especially in today's realm and pickings of men out here.
He Believes In You
Surprisingly to our knowledge, a lot of young women and women, in general, have been in relationships where their partner showed little to no faith in their significant other's abilities or desires. Well, we'd personally like to say make that a thing of the past and if you find someone who's truly invested in you and believes in you, you might want them to stick around for the long haul.
Good With Children
Even though women tend to be naturally more nurturing in regards to children, finding out that your significant other is great with kids is always a good look. Whether it be with your own children, the children within your family, or a friend's child, knowing you have a trustworthy partner in regards to kids is always a plus.
Gives Up Guy Time To Be With You
Before any of you jump to conclusions out there, let it be known, that your man or woman should be allowed and given the time to spend with the other people in their lives especially their friends but, if they're willing to give up the company of their boys to spend some quality time with you, that's a quality that should be appreciated.
Encourages You To Try New Things
If you've found someone who you feel comfortable with that allows you to step outside of your comfort zone and aren't afraid to try new things and experiences with, seriously, never let them go. It's really easy to get trapped into the routine and regularities of everyday life but, having someone to pull you outside of your comfort zone from time to time will keep boredom from entering your relationship.
He Remembers What's Important
Let's get this straight, what might be important to you in regards to first date anniversaries or the day you both dropped your phones at the same time may not be at the front of his mind but, if he remembers you mentioning your favorite flower or favorite movie and meal and delivers you these things spontaneously, he remembers what's really important in the aspects of your being.
You Make Him Better
Self-improvement should be a continuous goal for all of us on this planet but, if your significant other has you as a little extra motivation to be the best version of himself possible than so be it. Most people enter relationships and become lazy but, any man who wants to continuously make himself and you better for the benefit of not only the relationship but yourselves is definitely a keeper.
Spends Time With Your Family
If you have a man in your life who's willing to spend time with the people that molded you throughout your life, whether he likes them or not, this is a quality that shouldn't go unnoticed and should be appreciated at all times. It can be tough for him to put himself in uncomfortable situations but, if he's willing to do so for you, you definitely have something worth cherishing.
He Challenges You
You might not appreciate it in the moment but, if you have a significant other who's willing to push you the extra mile or challenge you to take the next step in your career or raise the bar in any level in regards to your life, he wants you to be the best version of yourself as possible and instill an unstoppable mindset within you. Who wouldn't want that in their lives?
He Helps You Relax
The hustle and bustle of the world gets to all of us sooner or later and we need the given opportunities to unwind and relax from the pressures of the world. If your boyfriend or significant other knows exactly what you need in order to relax and relieve all the tension and stress from your body and mind. Keep 'em around.
Knows How To Make You Laugh
Supposedly, they say that women would prefer a man who was unattractive and can make them laugh on a regular basis than an attractive man with no sense of humor at all. We're not sure if there is any truth in that but, what we do know is that if the man in your life keeps a smile on your face and laughter in your heart he should be in the running for a long time.
A Stable Support System
It's one thing to have someone in your life who believes in you, challenges you, and encourages you to do new things but, when the weight of the world is on your shoulders and feel like you can't take any more will he be there to do nothing but support you in your moments of weakness or to support you at all for that matter. Think about it.
Let's face it, a lot of us guys out here have a hard time truly intaking what our women are trying to fully communicate and even though we might not always get it right, if we're attentive and listening to the women in our lives, it should come with some appreciation even if the message isn't always clear. Ladies, if he's all ears and listening to what you have to say, he's a keeper.
Flames tend to die down after being with someone for awhile but, if you've been with your significant other for quite some time and noticed that his passion for you hasn't let up not even one bit, you might have a partner for life in him.
A lot of people would like to believe that their boyfriend/partner would be there for them through thick and thin but, unfortunately, this isn't always a reality. Some people are in conditional love, meaning their love only is available in these conditions, in health, not illness, only for the good times not the bad, and so much more. If he's truly there for you and committed, you gotta keeper.
If you have someone in your life who possesses these qualities, it's time to think about keeping them around for good.
