How to Know He’s the Right Man for Your Heart

  • SumoMe

He has taken you out on a few dates. You have had dinner, gone to the movies and met his friends. Yet you don’t want to invest any more time unless there is long-term potential. How do you know? Here are ten ways to tell if he is the one you can trust your heart with. Ask yourself these questions:

1) Do You Respect Him?

We always hear about how important it is that men respect us, but it needs to work both ways. Do you respect him? You need to if you are going to take the relationship to the next level.

2) Are You Still the Same Person?

Sometimes women change their behavior in order to get men to like them. They may act dumb or pretend to enjoy things they don’t. If you are the same person you always are when around him then that is a good sign.

3) Can He Hang Out with Your Friends?

He needs to get along with your friends. They don’t have to absolutely love him- that’s your job. But they should at least feel comfortable having him in the group. If you see a lot of eye-rolling then ask them what is going on.

4) Does He Hurt Your Feelings?

A high IQ is great but emotional intelligence is even more important in a relationship. He should be able to show empathy when you are going through a tough time and not tease you about things you are sensitive about.

5) Do You Trust Him?

Either you trust him or you don’t. Think with your gut on this one. Is he someone you can trust or do you have doubts about what he does when you aren’t around?

6) Are You Physically Attracted to Him?

There has to be a chemical attraction if things are going to work out. Do you feel attracted to him physically? Do you enjoy cuddling with him, holding hands, kissing?

7) Are You Silly Together?

People in happy relationships make time to laugh together. Are you comfortable being silly with him? Do you have the same sense of humor?

8) Does He Fight Fair?

Everyone has disagreements- if you don’t then something else is going on that you need to check out. But can you work through a disagreement together without it getting out of control?

9) Is Silence OK?

One of the most telling things about a relationship is whether there can be silences without it being awkward. You shouldn’t feel the need to fill every moment with words.

10) Do Your Parents Like Him?

Your parents know you well, even if you don’t want to admit it. Take their opinion about him seriously. You shouldn’t base your decision on how they feel- but you should take in into consideration.

Is he the one to trust with your heart? If you ask yourself these questions and respond honestly you will have your answer.
