Finding The One can be such a difficult task. There are so many variables that go into finding the perfect person to spend the rest of our lives in love with. The timing and the chemistry has to be perfect in order for relationships to work out. And even then, it’s not always a guaranteed thing. Relationships require a lot work, but they are made easier when you have a partner who is willing to work together with you ensure that your love never dies down. That’s why love tends to be a system of trial and error. We expose ourselves to as many different kinds of people that we possibly can, and we also engage in a process of self-discovery about the things we like and don’t like in people.
In the end, we should come out with a good understanding of what we want out of our partners and our relationships. For a lot of people, figuring things out can be quite difficult. They don’t know whether the relationship they are in is one that actually has potential for going all the way, or whether they should just cut their losses and call it quits. One thing is for sure, if you’re dating a guy that has the potential to be the man of your life forever, then you have to fight to keep him in your life. So how do you know if the man who you’re dating is that kind of guy worth fighting for? Keep watch for these signs.
1. Talk about future relationship plans.
If a man isn’t afraid to discuss the future with you, then that means he’s already entertained the thought of having you in his future. He’s not just fooling around with you and he’s seriously considering settling down with you for the rest of his life. It means he’s open to having you as a life partner. It also means that he’s mature enough to know that planning is always important.
2. Be your support system when you’re down.
Not everyone is perfect and you will have your fair share of failures and trials. That’s why it’s important for us to have people around us who love us and are willing to help lift us up when we’re down. If he serves as your number one support system whenever you’re feeling vulnerable, then he’s definitely a man worth keeping.
3. Be his true and authentic self when you’re together.
He has no problems letting his true colors shine whenever he’s with you because he is confident enough to know that you will accept him regardless. He also doesn’t ever want to keep you in the dark about who he really is as a person because he respects you enough to never conceal anything from you.
4. Make an effort to be liked by your social circles.
If he really did like you, then he would always make a concerted effort to be included in your social circles. He will want to be liked by your friends and family because he knows that they are important aspects of your life. He also knows that if you are to have a future together, it would be a shared future with each other and he has to play along to your standards.
5. Bend over backwards just to put a smile on your face.
Your happiness is his happiness. He would do whatever he can to bring a smile to your face because that is always the highlight of his day. He makes it his own personal mission to always make you happy even when you’re down in the dumps.
6. Practice full honesty even during the most difficult times.
Disrespect can break and destroy relationships and there is nothing more disrespectful than the blatant practice of dishonesty. If he is always honest with you about his feelings and actions, then that means he respects you enough to always tell you the truth. He never feels like you are stupid enough to not deserve anything less than the truth.
7. Treat you with utmost respect and care.
He always talks to you calmly and nicely. He doesn’t resort to cheap shots and will never make fun of you in public. If he will criticize you, he will do it in private and will keep it just between the both of you. He never wants to tarnish your reputation or damage your ego because he respects you too much to do so.
8. Serve as a great listener.
He’s a great person to talk to. He’s practically your best friend because he makes you feel like you can talk about absolutely anything whenever you’re with him. He’s someone with whom you can always count on to have a deep and meaningful conversation with.
9. Integrate you within his own social circles.
If he truly values you, he would have no problems with introducing you to his family and friends. In fact, he would want to show you off to people as much as possible because he’s just so incredibly proud of you and the fact that you’re together.
