During the dating period you discover a lot about someone. It’s during this time that you learn what kind of person you’re dating and if they match up with what you want in your life. There are many qualities that are generally attractive to most woman. Here are five signs that they you’re dating is a keeper.
This is actually one counter-intuitive fact: men who use a discount code when they first sign up with dating sites like eHarmony are more likely to be looking for a long term relationship. The reason? They aren’t signing up for the ‘dating life’, which includes a series of one night stands and short relationships. They want one person, and aren’t willing to sign up long term at a dating website for that reason.
A man who asks for and respects your opinion is a man worth keeping. He’s not the kind of man who decides what you’re going to do and when you’re going to do it without asking if you’re okay with it. He actually cares about your preference. If you’re having a discussion about politics, religion, or other beliefs, he makes the effort to listen and understand your point of view. He doesn’t blow you off because he doesn’t agree. If you don’t agree about something, this man is likely to compromise.
A man who is generous is a keeper. You don’t need to be involved with a selfish man who keeps everything to himself and refuses to share. A man who is generous will offer you the last slice of pizza even if he wants it. He will want to pay the tip when you paid for dinner. A generous man is a thoughtful man.
Whether or not the man is ambitious himself he shouldn’t be intimidated by your ambition. If you’re going to school while working and training for a marathon, he should support and encourage everything you’re doing. If the man you’re dating attempts to hold you back from what you’re trying to accomplish, he’s not a keeper.
If the man you’re dating has the ability to hold a conversation, he scores big points. The conversation doesn’t always have to be intelligent, but communication is very important to a relationship. Does he ask about your day? Is he willing to discuss his? It’s equally important that he’s a good listener while you’re having a conversation. Does he respond and ask questions when you’re telling a story?
A man with a good attitude even when times are tough, is a keeper. You probably don’t want to be with a man who dreads every morning and the future. Being with someone who complains day in and day out about his job, friends, and overall life isn’t very much fun. Being with a man who is excited for his future and his future with you is much more exciting and peaceful to be around.
You will know you’re dating a keeper if you don’t dread seeing him and you enjoy your time with him. If you feel like you need to walk on eggshells because he’s negative about his own life or your accomplishments, he’s probably not the right man for you.
