If Your Boyfriend Has These Qualities, You Need To Marry Him

You don’t need me to tell you that a good guy is difficult to find, especially in the digital age where women often feel disposable due to the abundance of choice on dating apps. That’s why if you manage to lock down a guy who exhibits these 15 qualities, he might be a keeper for life.

  1. Caring Firstly, a guy who not only cares about you but also comes across as a caring person is one that is 100% marriage material. After all, who can help falling in love with a guy every single day who helps an old lady cross the road or gives you his jacket when you’re cold? Exactly.
  2. Thoughtful Hand-in-hand with being caring, a thoughtful guy in the 21st  century is one in a million. If he buys you your favorite chocolate when you’re having a bad day or remembers important dates, never let him exit your life.
  3. Charming A charming guy is the type that can win over even the most difficult critics, including your poker-faced mom. He has the swagger that makes people turn their heads when he walks into a room and can make you smile even when you don’t want to—and that’s why he’s so special.
  4. Funny A guy that makes you laugh until you cry when you’re not expecting it is someone who needs to go from boyfriend to husband pronto. After all, once you’re both old and grey and your looks have faded, humor is going to be the thing that keeps your relationship alive.
  5. Mature Finding someone who’s as mature as you and on the same page in terms of wants and needs can be such a struggle in a world where courting is dead and it’s acceptable to date multiple people at once. If he knows when to be serious, when to be goofy, and has the same life plan as you, you might want to keep him.
  6. Ambitious If he actually wants to take you places, do things, and make something of himself, then he might just be hubby material. After all, it’s a smart idea to choose a life partner who will push you out of your comfort zone and bring out your adventurous side so you’ll never get bored in the years to come.
  7. Driven If your boyfriend is ambitious then he’ll also be driven because it’s kind of challenging to be one without the other. He won’t just talk about his plans and goals, he’ll actually follow through with them—and that’s hot.
  8. Selfless You want a guy for the long-term who cares, but you also need one who’s pretty selfless. If he’s selfish, he won’t ever prioritize you or put your needs first. He’ll be happy to cruise along and do his own thing without consulting you and your feelings. Who wants that as their future?
  9. Independent There’s a fine line between being selfless and totally dependent on you, which is what you definitely don’t want. If he manages to prioritize you but still knows how to carry on his own without being needy or forgetting to treat you like a girlfriend instead of his mother, then you’ve found the perfect balance. Congrats!
  10. Good Listener A good listener is super hard to source—you tend to get guys who pretend to listen and don’t actually or ones who just talk about themselves all the time. If your BF remembers the things you tell him and responds well to you in conversation, then you might want to consider putting a ring on it.
  11. Optimistic You can never go wrong with a “glass half full” guy, especially if you struggle to stay positive in everyday life. In fact, if he brings out the good in you and everyone else around him and can always look on the bright side, he deserves to be championed and called husband one day.
  12. Supportive As well as having the ability to put a positive spin on situations, if he’s supportive of everything that you do then this is very unique. After all, the last thing you want from a life partner is one who criticizes you and makes you feel bad for the decisions you make.
  13. Appreciative From sending you cute texts telling you how much he cares to cooking you dinner after a long, hard day, if he makes you feel valued with both his words and his actions then he might be the one for you.
  14. Reliable You also need to marry your boyfriend if you can depend on him not to let you down. Whether this is in terms of not flaking on plans or being able to trust him on wild, boozy nights out with his buddies, you don’t need to worry because you know your guy has got your back. Doesn’t it feel wonderful?
  15. Loyal You need to know that your future husband is going to stay by your side no matter what. If you don’t ever worry that your boyfriend will cheat, stray, or leave you, then he’s a surefire winner who you should keep around for the long haul.
