11 Signs You’re A Total Keeper And Any Guy Would Be Lucky To Have You

We always focus on what makes the guys we like worthy of our time, but what about us? After all, you’re a total prize and you deserve someone who will fight for you and then never let you go. If you have any of these qualities, they’re just a few of the reasons that you’re a total catch.

  1. You know who you are and you’re proud of it. There is nothing sexier than a woman who knows who she is and won’t let anyone tell her otherwise. You know what you value and care about in life and you’re rooted in those values. There might be a man (or a few men) who come along and try to change who you are to fit what they’re looking for. Trust me, the fact that you’re strong in who you are and true to yourself is just one of the many reasons you’re a rare and precious gem.
  2. You’re constantly working towards your goals. Whether it’s a promotion at work, a creative endeavor, or even building an empire, if you’ve got things you’re trying to achieve in your life and are consistently working towards them, you’re someone who values and strives for self-improvement. Someone who’s always trying to work harder and become better is naturally someone who’s confident and headstrong. Any man would be so lucky to land a hard-working and ambitious woman like yourself!
  3. You prioritize what matters to you. Whether it’s your family, your career, your friends, or even your dog, prioritizing the things and people that mean the most to you shows how loyal and true you are as a person. When you put the things you cherish most in life above everything else, it just shows how you’ll prioritize and cherish your partner.
  4. You can make any situation fun. Whether you’re on a vacation, stuck in quarantine, or working overtime from home, you can make any place or day enjoyable. Your positive and uplifting attitude makes even annoying and difficult situations seem not as bad and your sense of humor makes everything a little more bearable. People love being around you because they know they’ll laugh and forget about all of the stress even if just for a few hours.
  5. You’re beautiful inside and out. Of course, you’re gorgeous – any man can see that – but what really makes you a catch is how beautiful your heart is. You’re kind, compassionate, understanding, and that doesn’t even scratch the surface. You have a beautiful soul and any man who meets you instantly feels warm and comforted. When anyone you meet feels a sense of ease around you, that’s a quality the right man will fight for.
  6. You fight fair. No relationship is perfect 100% of the time and you and your partner will disagree and argue from time to time. You should never suppress your feelings to appease the other person or sweep things that need to be confronted under the rug, but one of the things that makes you so great is that you know how to fight fair when conflicts arise in your relationship. You know how to express yourself while still always considering how your partner feels and listening to what they have to say. Not everyone can achieve that balance in a relationship and it’s just one of the wonders of you.
  7. You’re always there for the ones you love. Loyalty is so important to you. You stand by the people you love no matter what and if someone in your life needs you, you’re the first person by their side, no questions asked. People know they can count on you and your partner knows that you are trustworthy and honest because it is something you truly value. You’re a stand-up, gal.
  8. You don’t glamorize drama. Some people think there’s something romantic about fighting, conflict, and turmoil in their relationship. Maybe they think it keeps their partner on his toes, maybe they just get bored and want to stir things up for entertainment but that is definitely not you. You know that petty drama does nothing but cause animosity and tension in relationships and your partner knows that if there is something that is truly upsetting you, you’ll go to them like a mature adult and voice your opinion. That’s so much more attractive than a woman who cooks up trouble just for the hell of it.
  9. You don’t tear other women down. It’s so easy for women to pick on each other for tiny, insignificant flaws and shortcomings because it makes them feel less insecure, but that’s so not you. You know that the world is hard enough on women as it is and the last thing we need to do is turn on each other. Women have the power to move mountains and we have a much better chance if we work at it together and you know how important it is to lift other women up. You don’t get caught up in jealousy and childish antics and that makes you serious relationship material.
  10. You love with your whole heart. Nobody hopes and prays to meet someone who will love them half-heartedly, you know? What makes you so special is that when you love someone, you make sure they know it every, single day. You don’t hold back your feelings because you’re scared of the response you’ll get. We never know how much time we have left with someone and you never take that for granted. Making your partner feel loved and desired every day is another reason you’re a total steal.
  11. You stand in your power. Some men might be intimidated by a strong and confident woman but not your soulmate. He loves the fact that you’re strong, you’re firm on the principles, and you have a brilliant mind of your own. You don’t let anyone tell you that what you want in life is unattainable or that you can’t change the world. You treat every day as a new opportunity to make a difference and leave your mark on this planet. Is it any wonder you’re such a keeper?
