Have you ever looked at a couple and said “These two people were made for each other!” Most people hope to find the perfect relationship. This search, however, can lead us into relationships that do more harm than good. So, how do you know when you’ve found the man who is right for you?
You Are an Important Part of His Life
When a man truly loves a woman he can’t imagine life without her. He looks forward to spending time with her and frequently expresses his love. He doesn’t make her beg for his affection, ignore her calls, or talk to her every other day. It is easy for a woman to make a man an important part of her life. However, the reverse is rarely true for a man. So, if you have found a man who actively shows that you are an important part of his life, he may be worth keeping.
He Has Ambition
A man who has no idea about what he wants to do with his life will more than likely not be able to effectively assume his role as the head of your family. If you realize that your man is more satisfied with sitting on the couch than finding a job and getting his life in order, you have two options. The first is to offer him helpful guidance and help him grow. The second is to walk away. Sometimes the man has no intention to adjust his ways. In these instances, it really isn’t worth it to hold on.
It may also be true that your man may be too ambitious. One may argue that it is better to be too ambitious rather than lack ambition altogether. However, some men with great ambition have no place in their lives for a lifelong partner. Their ambition can overshadow their desire to make a lifelong commitment to someone. This leads me to my next point: he has to see a future with you in it.
He Has to See You As a Part of His Future
I have had two relationships in my short life. My first relationship lasted for about 5 years. I was in love and my man had become my world. However, I gradually began to realize that he never saw a future with me in it. He also didn’t need me as much as I needed him. We slowly began to drift apart until it was time for us to let go.
Regardless of how much it hurt, I realized that the truth was staring me in the face. A woman can’t plan to build a life with a man who has no plans to build a life with her. Not matter how much you love him, it just won’t work.
He Sees You as His Best Friend
The strongest relationships are those that are built on friendship. When your partner sees you as one of his closest and most important friends, he will be willing to let you see aspects of himself that no one else will ever be able to see. He will let you into the deepest places of his heart and share his dreams with you. If you are able to do the same with him, he may just be the right one for you.
He Strives to Make You Happy
A man who truly loves you will do anything in his power to make you happy. When you are happy, he is happy. He will be your shoulder to lean on when you are down and make you feel like the most beautiful woman in the world. His actions will greatly encourage you to make him happy as well.
Finding the right man can be a daunting task. However, if you realize that you have found a man who meets all of the criteria I have mentioned, he may be a keeper.
