If He’s Worth Your Time, He’ll Make You Feel These 10 Things

While a deep connection takes time to develop, you can generally tell pretty quickly whether you have chemistry with the person you’re dating. Still, chemistry doesn’t guarantee that the guy you’re seeing is actually worth your time and energy. If he is, he’ll have you feeling these things right off the bat:

  1. Butterflies I know it’s cheesy, but that feeling of butterflies is definitely something you should be feeling, especially in a new relationship. If the thought of seeing him doesn’t make you feel a little tingly inside, what’s the point? Those butterflies are an indication that you dig him, and that’s the base of a good relationship.
  2. Confident He should be lifting you up, not tearing you down. A guy that’s worth your time will make you feel like you’re the best girl in the whole world and boost your confidence even higher than it already is (or should be). You want a guy who tells you how beautiful you are and how much he enjoys being with you and genuinely means it. You should feel good about your relationship and confident in what you guys have.
  3. Excited If he doesn’t excite you, then what are you doing? Wasting your time dating another loser just to prove that you are lovable? He needs to make you jump for joy when he calls or get all riled up when you go on a date. If he can’t do that, time to move on to the next one. Sure, you’ll settle down in time if your relationship is built to last, but this is supposed to be the exciting stage.
  4. Happy This is a no-brainer. A guy has to be able to make you happy, and more than that, he has to WANT to make you happy. Does he do little things like leave a love note for you in the morning or go out of his way to do something nice for you? A guy who’s really worth your time will go out of his way to put a smile on your face and love every second of it.
  5. Unstoppable A great guy will believe in you and your dreams. When he’s around, he’ll make you feel like you can take on the whole world; like you’re flying and you can do anything you set your mind to. He’ll make you feel like anything is possible, and that’s an incredible feeling.
  6. Peace Any guy who’s worth your time has to make you feel some sense of peace when you’re with him. If he’s always making you worry or stressing you out about little things, there’s no way the relationship can last long-term. If he puts you at ease and makes you feel comfortable when you’re together, you might have a winner.
  7. Secure Your guy should give you the feeling that everything is going to be okay and that he’ll do whatever he can to take care of you and protect you, even though he’s fully aware that you can do it for yourself. Not only that, but he should make you feel secure in your relationship as a whole. You shouldn’t be worried that he’s cheating on you or that he’s planning to dump you. A great guy will make sure that you know that he’s honest with and loyal to you.
  8. Hopeful Do you find yourself dreaming of the future when you’re with him? Are you full of hope for what the next chapter of your relationship with him will bring? If not, you should probably get out now. A guy that is truly worth your time will encourage you and give you the sense that something wonderful is about to happen.
  9. Sexy If he doesn’t make you feel like the amazing, sexy woman that you are, ditch him right now. You need a guy who finds you irresistible and has no problem telling you so, not just because of your appearance, but because of your heart and mind.
  10. Loved This is maybe the most important of all. Sure, it’s hard to tell at the beginning of the relationship if he loves you or not, but as time goes on and you get closer to him, you should be able to feel how he really cares for you. If he doesn’t, then there’s really no point to keep dating him. Your heart should swell up with all of the love that he makes you feel.
