How To Tell If They’re A Keeper

You can’t stop talking about how great they are, your parents love them and they have an adorable bond with your dog! Here are some great ways to tell they’re for keeps…

They make an effort with your family and friends.

You get on well with each other’s friends and they always welcome the idea of meeting new people. Sunday lunch at Mum’s is always a pleasure and they make a real effort trying to connect with your siblings.

You’re best friends.

A great friendship is an important part of being in a relationship. You can have conversations about real things going on in the world and you’re constantly laughing and joking with each other.

You feel happy.

Of course, relationships aren’t always sunshine and rainbow, but 99% of the time you’re genuinely happy with each other. You don’t feel the need to walk on egg shells around each other and have you constantly grinning from ear-to-ear.

They’re planning for your future.

You both feel comfortable making plans in advance because you’re pretty confident about your relationship. They’re happy to spend money booking holidays etc. because there’s no reason you wouldn’t be together.

They remember the little things.

They listen to you and can remember little things you’ve mentioned in passing. They’ll surprise you with your favourite ice cream or start a conversation about your favourite book because they actually pay attention.

You can rely on them.

When you make plan, you know they’re going to be there. They’re willing to put time aside for you because they know you’re worth it and they enjoy spending their free time with you.

They love you at your best – and worst.

Like a real human being you’ve let your guard down with them and shown your emotions. But whether you’ve been sad, angry or just plain moody, they’ve stuck around and handled it.


Until next time,
