Ever found yourself in that tricky spot, wondering if the guy you’re with is really the one you should stick with for the long haul? It’s a tough call, and the more you think about it, the more confusing it gets, right?

Choosing a lifelong partner is no walk in the park. It’s probably one of the toughest decisions you’ll ever have to make.

Sadly, many women end up with guys who just don’t give them the love they need for a happy life. To save you from that fate, I’ve put together three little signs to help you figure out if your man is truly a keeper or if it’s time to walk away.

Here are the three subtle signs he’s a keeper:

Happiness and Fulfillment Are Your Norm

The biggest indicator that you’ve got a keeper is if you feel consistently happy and fulfilled in your relationship. Focus on the word ‘consistently’ here.

In any relationship, it’s unrealistic to expect both partners to always see eye to eye. We all have different backgrounds and experiences that shape our perspectives and actions.

A strong relationship relies on both partners consistently meeting and fulfilling each other’s needs. If you’ve got a guy who’s been consistent from the start, your chances of a happy marriage are high.

But if you’re regularly feeling upset, frustrated, or angry, and it seems like your needs are being ignored, it’s a warning sign. If your needs aren’t being met now, it’s unlikely they’ll be met in the future.

He’s Reliable and Sticks to His Word

In choosing a lifelong partner, character is crucial. Life’s full of ups and downs, and you need someone dependable by your side to help you through the rough patches.

To gauge his responsibility, look at how he handles his life. Is he financially sensible? Does he take his job or career seriously? Or do you spot red flags showing he might not be reliable?

Also, consider if he’s someone who honors his commitments. Does he own up to his mistakes, or is he full of excuses?

Inability to communicate and collaborate is a relationship killer. So, finding someone who is responsible and keeps his promises is key for a lasting, happy marriage.

He Treats You and Others with Respect

The way a guy treats others can be a big clue about what kind of husband he’ll be. Pay attention to how he interacts with people around him. If he’s kind to you but consistently rude or disrespectful to others, it’s likely that you’ll eventually be on the receiving end of his negative behavior.

On the other hand, if he’s generally kind, compassionate, and respectful to everyone, there’s a good chance he’ll treat you the same way. That’s the type of person worth committing to.

Remember, attraction is essential too. It’s not all about lust or infatuation, but there needs to be some spark. Attraction is subjective, and what pulls you in might not be the same for someone else. It’s the attraction that opens the door, but the real substance of a person – who they are and how they treat you – is what makes you want to stay.

Once you feel that initial spark, these three signs can guide you in deciding if he’s really marriage material.
