For a man, the vital question is: how do I know if she is a keeper or not? Will our relationship withstand the test of time? The decision list below will help you know if your current date is a what most of us know as a keeper – a woman you can bring home to your mom.
How Many Boxes Does She Tick Out In this Decision List?
A long-term relationship or even marriage highly depends on whether you got yourself a keeper. Quietly check your woman against the decision list below, and see how many boxes she ticks out:
She has the smarts.
When looking for a life partner, it is important that she is smart. And, it is much better if she is smarter than you. It is believed that a smart partner will continue to challenge you intellectually, so your mind keeps working and remains sharp. You continually discuss and churn out ideas. And, it doesn’t stop even if you’re already old and gray.
She is honest.
In every relationship, honesty is still the best policy. If you have found yourself an honest woman, that is golden. In this day and age of deceit and scheming to get ahead, an honest woman is actually quite refreshing.
She has a genuinely positive outlook on life.
Let’s face it, negative people can really be toxic. And, the sad thing is, they can also be bad for our health, especially after prolonged association with them. Eventually, their negativity will rub off on you and it’s not going to be a happy state. If you’re dating someone who is as positive as sunshine, then you’re on the right track.
She laughs at your jokes.
There was a study in 2006 where psychologists suggested that having a partner who thinks they are funny is really important for men. So if you have already found a woman who laughs at your jokes and you can laugh in the face of problems, then don’t let go of her anymore.
She supports your goals while pursuing your own.
There is nothing more heart-warming than a woman who has her partner’s back when he is pursuing his dreams. But don’t get this wrong – she is not a wallflower. While he works on his goals, she also works on hers. She shows her genuine support and even extends help when necessary.
This is just a partial decision list. Of course, there are many more factors to consider. But, if your woman now has all these traits, then for sure, take good care of her. Do share this list if you found it helpful. Don’t forget to read more tips on the blog.
