Love can do miraculous things. It can make a complete cynic fall in love with love. It can make a closed off person open their heart like they never dared before. And it can make the most stubborn person completely let go and surrender to the power of love.
It really is amazing. And what’s even more beautiful is realizing that you can truly and whole-heartedly open your heart to this person and know in your gut that you’re safe.
To have that reassurance of trust, commitment, and complete relaxation when you’re with him is what we all aspire to find. It’s not easy. Especially if you’ve been hurt a lot.
It takes a lot of bravery to make yourself so vulnerable and open to love again. So when you do finally manage to achieve it, it’s the best feeling to know it was all worth it.
But now all you need to know is if your gut is right and if this guy really is worth your effort and commitment. And I am here to help you determine if you’ve finally found the one worth keeping around.
Here are 7 wonderful signs you can finally breathe with ease again, as your heart is in good hands!
1. So far, he has never done anything to make you question his loyalty
Since you’ve known him, you’ve never been hurt by him. At least not purposely. We all have flaws and we all make mistakes. But what I’m talking here is a betrayal of the heart. And so far, it hasn’t happened, and you truly believe his heart is in the right place.
A man who has never made you question his loyalty and has stayed true to his word is somebody that is worth your love. If he’s been around for a while and hasn’t made you regret having him, it’s likely you’re completely safe around him.
2. He has never lied to you (not even a little white lie)
Being lied to is something we are all unfortunately faced with a lot. It is a common occurrence these days, so when you find somebody who always owns up to his shit and is brutally honest with you, keep him.
It’s not easy always being completely honest. And lying takes zero effort. Yet, he still chooses to keep it real with you, because he’d rather tell the truth and risk hurting you in the process, than stroke your ego with a little white lie. It’s just not how he rolls, and you are lucky to have him. He seems like a keeper.
3. He always meets you halfway and never makes you chase him
He’s simply there and you just know it. Whatever you’re dealing with, you always manage to find a healthy compromise. He never makes you feel bad about it and he genuinely wants to find middle ground and keep you as happy as possible.
It is a rarity to find a guy who is willing to lose a battle or two if it means making you happy. But for him, it’s nothing but a breeze. You always find each other somewhere in the middle and make sure everybody’s happy. This is the purest sign of love there is.
4. He doesn’t have a problem with saying “I love you”
He can shout it from the rooftops for all he cares. He’s there, he loves you, and he doesn’t care who hears it. You feel like the luckiest girl when you’re with him, and it kind of feels like a dream.
But it’s not. He’s real and he’s all yours. A guy who is capable of professing his love even when you’re quarrelling and never lets you go to bed mad, is a man with a heart worthy of your love. Don’t take this for granted and show him how much you appreciate him.
5. He has always respected you and all of your choices
He stands behind you at all times. Even if he doesn’t agree with all of your decisions and choices, he will always back you up. He knows you’re a grown woman capable of making smart decision and he lets you be who you are.
It is so reassuring to find somebody whose support is unwavering. Whatever you do, you simply know he’s going to be there, and it makes every single choice you make that much easier. He is your biggest cheerleader and with his support, you feel invincible.
6. He goes above and beyond when you need him
He never makes excuses. You are always his priority, no matter where he is and what he is doing. You can call him in the middle of the night, and he’ll be there if you need him. You can call him about the silliest thing, crying your eyes out, and he’ll be your sounding board.
He just makes all other men pale in comparison. He is always there. He doesn’t choose moments when it suits him best and he doesn’t lie to get out of being there. He says something and keeps true to his word. That is a sign of a real man with a good head on his shoulders and a heart made of gold.
7. He makes you feel like the most important person in his life
And you most likely are! Your gut is always right. If you feel it – you better believe it! You feel like you are ready for whatever is ahead, good or bad. If you’re with him, you know you’ll weather any storm.
Sure, it’s not always going to be this breezy – and there will be challenging times – but that’s just the thing. However difficult it gets, you know you’re the one he always wants by his side. He has shown you plenty of times that he is not going anywhere.
He makes you feel important and heard, and there isn’t a greater feeling in the world. With this guy, you’re truly safe. He’s got you, and he’s not going to let you go!
