1. He doesn’t get upset when you choose to spend time with other people.
He recognizes your freedom and he never wants to make you feel suffocated. He doesn’t want to chain you to the relationship and he will never have a problem with you choosing to hang out with other people. He lets you have a life outside of your relationship.
2. He lets you wear whatever clothes you want.
He respects you enough to acknowledge your freedom of choice and expression. He would never demean or insult you for your clothing choices. He knows that your clothes are a manifestation of your personality, and he loves that about you.
3. He never goes to sleep without fixing an argument with you.
He doesn’t like you to ever end the day on bad terms. He will always try to make amends with you before going to sleep at night. He never likes the feeling of going to bed without fixing whatever arguments or disagreements you two may be having.
4. He makes an effort for your friends to like him.
He knows that your friends are important to you, and so it’s also important for him that your friends like him too. He always makes an effort to integrate himself into your life seamlessly and that includes making your social circles accept him.

8 Signs He’s The Guy You Should Be Marrying
He’s definitely Mr. Right!
This one is for the ladies, another one will be posted tomorrow for men. So you’ve spent a substantial amount of time with your boyfriend and want to to take things to the next level, this article is going to help you in that decision-making process. Let’s begin.
8. He tells you to have your “Girls Nights”
This is something I haven’t seen in a lot of men but it should be more common than it already is. A guy who pushes you to have girls nights is a guy who knows how important your girls are for you and he knows you need to spend your own “me time” with them to stay happy. It also means that he isn’t a need freak who can’t see you have fun on your own without him being there. Keep in mind, a guy is writing this article and I tell my girlfriend to go out with her girls all the time. It’s a very healthy trait to have for men.
7. He understands you, completely
When I say “understand”, I don’t just mean that he knows your likes and dislikes. Anyone who spends a few months with you can understand you that much, I’m talking about a more mature level of understanding. This means that your guy knows when you’re ticked off, it also means he knows what to say and when to say it. If a guy can make you laugh at even the most darkest of your days, he understands you emotionally. Emotional understanding is very vital for a lasting relationship.
6. He doesn’t hate your social circle
This is kind of common, a lot of guy friends I have actually restrict their girlfriends from meeting her friends. There will be guys and girls both in her social circle but some men have issues with the fact that their girlfriends are spending too much time in her social circle (mostly the guys in that social circle). This points to a few insecurities that some guys have and it also points to the fact that he doesn’t trust you as much as he should. A guy who’s completely cool with your social circle is the guy you NEED to keep and do everything for.
5. He doesn’t flinch at the topic of marriage
I know, marriage sometimes can be a difficult topic to think about but when two people have known each other enough, it becomes part of the general conversation without a plethora of anti-marriage statements. We get into relationships because we want to see how compatible we are with people and ultimately if we can spend the rest of our lives with them or not. If your boyfriend doesn’t run away from this topic, it means he’s been thinking about it as much as you have or maybe more, he’s a keeper.
4. He supports you even at your worst decisions
We all make mistakes in life, sometimes our decisions lead to good things and sometimes they lead to bad things. A person who stands right by your side at both the good and the bad is a person who loves you no matter what. Support is very important (it goes without saying), emotional support is something that makes your partner understand that they’ll always get back to normal even if they make a bad decision. If your guy supports you even when you fail, he’ll support you in anything.
3. He loves you the same
Now this one is common. When relationships get old (a few years), a lot of people complain that “it’s not the same anymore”, “the spark is gone”, “we are growing apart”, well that’s because of a lot of reasons but mainly absence of expressiveness can lead to this. If you feel the same with your guy even after years of being with him, why are you even reading this article? He’s a keeper.
2. He is a romantic
Sentimental guys are hard to come by, I’m proud at the way I express myself with my girlfriend and she loves this fact about me, the fact that I am expressive about each and every feeling I have. A friend of mine once told me, he said:
“You’re very expressive and vocal about your feelings. A lot of girls are just going to use you until they find some douche.”
I didn’t believe it back then and the fact that my girlfriend loves me so much because of this is proof that I wasn’t wrong in not believing my friend. If you have a guy who’s emotional and expressive, marriage is your next step.
1. He doesn’t care about how “hot” you look
A man who loves you will love you regardless of how much makeup you put on your face or how hot you look. A man who loves you also knows that beauty and “hotness” are very superficial things and feelings are what count in the end. If you have a guy who looks at you with the same loving way in any case, he’s a keeper.
That’s it for now, ladies. Have you found your Mr. Right? Let me know what you love about him in the comments below. As always, stay blessed and keep the love alive!
