The task of finding true love might feel like a near impossibility these days. And no one would ever blame you for feeling that way. However, just because it feels like love isn’t within your grasp just yet doesn’t mean that you should just stop believing in it altogether. Sometimes, you’re just going to need to put yourself in the right position (together with the right partner) in order for you to find success in your love life.
Even though you might think that you’re ready for love, you need to make sure that you have a partner who is ready for love as well. But how do you know if the guy you’re dating is someone you can actually find true love with? Well, there are a few telltale signs that you can try to seek out as you’re getting to know him better.
If you really want to know if you’re with the right guy to be in a healthy and happy romantic relationship with, then you need to make sure that he does these 10 things:
1. He doesn’t hesitate to be the one who calls or texts first.
He doesn’t really shy away from calling or texting you first. He isn’t interested in playing any games with you. He doesn’t wait for you to make the first move. He always tries to take the initiative.
2. He makes an effort in planning dates.
He really makes an effort in planning the dates that you have. He knows that dates are opportunities for you to get closer and share memories as a couple. He also knows that his efforts are going to go a long way in making sure that you feel loved and appreciated.
3. He misses you whenever you’re not together.
Even in the times wherein you aren’t together, you get the sense that he’s always thinking about you. He texts you just to check in on you. He really makes it a point to let you know that you’re on his mind even when you aren’t spending time with one another.
4. He doesn’t hide his feelings from you.
He doesn’t really seem interested in hiding any feelings from you. He really isn’t afraid of wearing his heart on his sleeve when it comes to you. He wants you to get a good glimpse of who he is and how he might be feeling. He doesn’t want to make you feel excluded or distant. He tries to bridge that emotional gap between you.
5. He shows sincere concern over your feelings and well-being.
He really shows a sincere concern over how you might feel. He does his best to bring a lot of positive energy into your life. Whenever you’re feeling angry, he listens to you and he tries to empathize with you. Whenever you’re sad, he will make you feel like you have someone there who can comfort you.
6. He acts as if he’s genuinely proud of you.
He is genuinely proud to be around you. He doesn’t patronize you in any way. He doesn’t put you on a pedestal. He doesn’t pressure you to act or be a certain way. But he doesn’t look down on you either. He doesn’t act as if your accomplishments and successes in life are small and insignificant.
7. He helps you out however way he can.
He really makes it a point to make you feel like you’ve got help and support. Whenever you need some assistance in getting something done, he wouldn’t hesitate to lend a helping hand. He wouldn’t be above doing chores and running errands for you. He would willingly do whatever he can to make your life easier.
8. He does his part to boost your confidence and self-esteem.
He really makes it a point to try to boost your confidence and self-esteem. He doesn’t hold back with any of his compliments or words of affection towards you. He really does admire who you are as a human being. And he isn’t afraid of letting his adoration be known to you.
9. He makes you feel loved in spite of your flaws.
He always makes it a point to make sure that you feel loved and appreciated in spite of whatever flaws or shortcomings you might have in your life. He doesn’t feed into your insecurities. Rather, he lifts you up and he makes you feel accepted even though you are very much aware of your personal imperfections.
10. He talks about the future with you.
And of course, you always want a man who is going to show a willingness to talk about the future with you. He should be a guy who has genuine plans for himself and for the both of you. Otherwise, you would never be able to feel a sense of safety and security whenever you’re with him. He wouldn’t be able to give you that.
