We all know that love saying “When you know, you know” right? But what about when we think we know, but we’re not sure?
Sometimes love can be a bit confusing and we can overlook an amazing woman (who is girlfriend /fiancé /wife material) when we have one right in front of us. The most classic, yet utterly depressing love stories we have heard for decades are about those who live in regret and lone for the day that they can re-unite with “the one who got away.” These kind of love screw ups happen quite often, mainly because there are too many distractions and WE DON’T SEE THE SIGNS that she’s a keeper.
Finding the right girl is a life long challenge. Don’t live your life in regret knowing that she was right in front of you and you let her go. Check out our list of 16 signs she's a keeper and see if she shares these characteristics.
First and foremost, if you’re planning on being with her for the long haul, you should be able to hold a good, natural, easy flowing conversation. Talking to her is never a challenge and always a pleasure. She can hold a good casual conversation and keep you both entertained. Even on a 15 hour road-trip with bland scenery, things stay interesting with her. Also, during those tough conversations that can come up, she’s approachable and easy to talk to.
Now this one seems obvious, but we can sometimes overlook this sign. She should be smart. I’m not saying that she has to be an up and coming genius, like the next Cleopatra, but having a good solid head on her shoulders is important. She doesn’t necessarily need to be book smart either. Sometimes we don’t want a girl who can recite the pythagorean theorem in her sleep, but a girl who has good judgement and common sense. She knows the difference between right and wrong, good and bad, and she’s generally on the same page with you when it comes to decision making.
Though the super hot chicks with an IQ lower than room temperature may be tempting to date and hook up with, chances are that in the future, you wouldn’t want to discuss home finances with a girl who can barely count to 100.
Everyone has their own definition of what makes a girl gorgeous, but as cliché as this may sound, beauty really is in the eye of the beholder. Beauty comes in all colors, shapes and sizes and is ultimately defined by the person making the judgement. One thing to remember, if people have different opinions about her looks, don’t let them influence you at all.
You’ll know that she’s gorgeous by the way you react to just seeing her. She’ll make your heart skip a beat every time you see her. Her body, her smile, the smell of her hair and the very thought of her being in your presence brings you that natural high that you never want to wear off. That my friend, is beauty.
You know you have yourself a genuine girl when she’s willing to do or try new things that she normally wouldn’t have done before you.
She’s totally open to anything you want to try or do, just to please you. A total sign of a keeper.
She has drive and ambition. She knows what she wants and is willing to go the extra mile to get it. Whether she wants to get that promotion at work, stay in shape at the gym or become the best housewife she can be, she’ll find a way to do it. Not saying that she can’t be lazy, but she knows the balance. It’s okay for her to share some time with you on the couch while you two binge watch Netflix, but she knows that she can’t do that 24/7 because she has goals.
There’s nothing better than a girl who knows how to have a good time! She knows how to brighten the most dullest moments and bring out the kid in you. She’ll be the first one to find something cool for you two to do (even in a boring city).
She’ll totally dance with you at that party, even though your two left feet make you look like an idiot (she doesn’t care). She’ll be the first one to break out in group song at the karaoke bar with Bohemian Rhapsody. She just has that magic touch that makes everything imaginable fun and enjoyable.
Not only does she care about you, she’ll go the extra mile to make sure that you’re comfortable when you need it the most. Sprained your ankle? She’ll be the first one to grab the ice and wrap your foot in gauze. She’ll also grab her car keys and act as your human crutch as she walks you to the car and drives your sprained ankled ass over to the ER. She’ll bring over chicken soup because she know’s it’s your favorite and it’ll make you feel better.
She genuinely cares about you and your well being, and is always willing to do what it takes to make you happy.
This one speaks for itself. The smell of her brings you joy. Even if she’s not wearing perfume, you just admire the sensation your nose experiences when she’s in your presence. Plus who likes girls with a stench? Chemistry can play a huge role in how good a person can smell, studies show that we’re attracted to the body odor of those we’re likely to mate with. Can’t argue with science, or a girl that smells good.
Hygiene is never an issue with her. We’ve already established that she smells good and that you may be attracted to her when she’s sweating, but for the most part she goes out of her way to make sure she’s nice and clean. She makes sure her hair is done and her nails are nice and neat too! She’s always nicely dressed, even when lounging around in pajamas on a Sunday. She has that sexy, yet always done up look even when she doesn’t seem like she’s trying (she secretly is).
She completely trusts you, and you trust her. You have complete trust in this girl and never worry about her pulling any scandalous acts. She doesn’t trip when you want to go to Vegas on a guys trip, or when that random girl approaches you at a party. She know’s she can trust you and gives you your space.
She just gets you. She completely understands where your coming from and can sympathize or empathize with you when you need it the most. Not only does she understand you, more than likely she’ll agree with you (eventually).
If you screw up, she’ll forgive you. She’s on your side, even when it upsets her. She doesn’t hold grudges and she’s never bitter about the past. Unless you royally screw up (like cheat on her) she’ll always forgive you. It just might take some time depending on how bad you screw up, but this girl will bounce back.
She’s a natural at getting along with everyone. Your friends like her, your family loves her. She fits right into your existing life just like a glove. It’s almost as if she was meant to be there all along!
The last thing you want is a girl that your friends don’t approve of, or that your mother wouldn’t want to call her daughter-in-law.
Everyone loves a lady, and she is the epitome of one. She’s always respectable when she needs to be. She’s polite, proper and presents herself well. She not only respects you, but you respect her as well. She doesn’t always have to be too buttoned up though. She knows when to kick back and loosen up. She may have a sailor mouth on her occasionally, but only when it’s appropriate. She’s definitely not that ghetto girl in line at the grocery store who drops the f-bomb every other word she says.
You can be the worst comedian and have the lamest humor, but she’ll always be your number one fan. She’ll laugh at all your jokes, even when nobody else does. She’s even open to absurd inside jokes that only you two think are funny. You know you’re onto something when you two can speak in baby language and completely understand each other.
She doesn’t play games. She know’s what she wants, and you’re it. You’re the only guy that has her attention and she has no plans on looking elsewhere. She likes you a lot and loves you even more (you may just not know it yet). She may not be clingy, but she sure as hell has seen the signs that you’re a keeper and she’s not letting you go.
If your girlfriend exhibits any of these signs and she makes you feel good inside, you may want to think about making her your forever girl :) One of the first things you’ll want to do is figure out your engagement ring situation.
