In the early stages of a relationship, it can all seem so magical and special – like this feeling of new-found love is going to last forever. Sadly, it doesn’t always burn that bright, but if you’ve found the right person for you, then you will be happy and steady together for years to come.
But how do you know when you’ve found Mr. Right? Well, on a recent Reddit discussion, a discussion opened on that exact topic, and users gave their answers along with the stories backing them up.
Here are some of the best. Enjoy!
1. He’s honest.
“If he would rather be honest with you and risk upsetting you than lie to you. Someone who is willing to tell the truth even if it means a bad outcome for them is a special kind of person. It’s easy to keep someone happy with lies.”
Communication and honesty are the keystones of any relationship. If he’s dishonest, you don;t have a future together.
2. He’s thoughtful.
“I was over at my boyfriend’s house and my boyfriend and I got into a pretty bad argument because of something I did and he was really pissed, so we didn’t talk for the rest of the night. I didn’t have my house keys so we slept on opposite sides of the bed, and I didn’t have a blanket. Well in the middle of the night I felt him put a blanket over me and put my head on a pillow, that’s how I knew.”
It’s a sign of a good man that he can forego his anger in a situation like this, and instead show his love.
3. He cooks.
“If he enthusiastically cooks dinner for you every day, even if you didn’t ask him to, he’s definitely a keeper.”
They say that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. This is true, but the same can apply to women, too!
4. He’s empathetic.
“When you are going through something rough and he listens and comforts you without judgment. When you can feel how much he cares and hurts to see you hurt.”
Empathy and understanding is one of the most important things in any relationship.
