No one wants a girlfriend they have to baby-sit.
Once in a while, like if she’s had a rough day, it’s great to be her shoulder to cry on, but if she can’t seem to function without you and is constantly after you, she will eventually make you feel like you’re suffocating, which is a surefire way to get you running out the nearest exit. On the other hand, if she has her very own personality and opinions, can stand on her own two feet, both financially and emotionally, and is able to enjoy time away from you — while still missing you, of course — then she must be a great girlfriend.
I hate to be the one to tell you this, but the bimbo routine gets real old, real fast. A woman who can meet you at an intellectual level is a total turn-on.
Instead of being the one in total control, you’ll find yourself trying to figure out what she’s really thinking behind those eyes of hers — or if
she’s actually thinking at all.
An intelligent woman will constantly surprise you
and keep you on your toes. She won’t let you get
bored of her. Besides, it’s nice to have something to
No excess baggage
Yeah! We guys have all come across that girl who catches our eye @ 1st inspection but a closer look reveals trust issues,daddy issues,control issues and the likes. Most guys don’t know how to deal with such and would rather leave than swim in unsure waters
I know, this one is kind of obvious, but important nonetheless. A great girlfriend will not only want to
look good for you, but also for herself. She should always look her best and be well put together. You have to be proud to have her on your arm and enjoy the sight of her in any light. And this doesn’t mean that she has to be a Tiwa Savage clone.
Remember that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so if you think her full lips or large ears are beautiful, you’re allowed.
She Respects You
This is a biggie. Your woman must respect you. This means that she listens to you, even if she doesn’t necessarily agree with what you’re saying. And, of
course, she never tries to demean or belittle you in any way, shape, or form.
A great girlfriend won’t ever cause scenes in public or in front of your friends and will always wait to discuss matters with you in private. If she respects you, chances are that she will
behave in a tactful and diplomatic manner in most situations, which is definitely a good thing.
She Lets You Be A Man
Do not — I repeat — do not get involved with a woman who tries to get you to go to the salon, watch chic flicks and the likes!! You will end up resenting her more than you can imagine. A good
girlfriend lets you be a guy in all your glory, football night and all. If she’s a great girlfriend, she’ll even join you and your friends while watching a football match and even maybe cook a lovely meal to go .
She has to understand that men and women are different and should allow you to be yourself. Just like you wouldn’t deprive her of going shopping with her best girlfriend, she shouldn’t expect you to give up the guys for her.
There is nothing worse than a nag! A great girlfriend knows this and chooses her battles wisely. She knows when to speak-up and when to let it slide. You don’t want a girlfriend who will give you
the heights of hell for something that isn’t really worth it
She Gets Along With Friends & Family
A great girlfriend will not only hang out
with your friends, she will enjoy it. She’ll make a real effort to get to know and love the most important people in your life. And she won’t try to get you to ditch your best buds. She’ll actually empathize with your brother’s getting
dumped and suggest that you guys take him out to cheer him up. Not only that, but your friends won’t roll their eyes and moan when you mention that she’ll be joining you guys. (yes, women like this do exist).
She Loves You
If you have found a woman who loves you for who you really are and not who you pretend or try to be sometimes, you should definitely hang on to her. A
woman who doesn’t try to change you is hard to find. Of course, everyone has their slightly annoying
habits that their partner has to contend with, but if she really loves you, she will be able to cope with
these. Another way to know if she really loves you is by observing the way she looks at you and treats you on an everyday basis. If the sight of you doesn’t seem to faze her either way, and she doesn’t really
seem to care about what you have to say, she’s either playing very hard to get, or sees you as just some guy. But if a surprise visit or phone call from you makes her light up, there’s no denying that she loves you.
She Makes You Want To Be A Better Man
(Stop making that face)… Any man who has a great girlfriend or wife will tell you that she makes him want to be a better man. She doesn’t have to say or do anything; it just is that way. If you suddenly feel bad about how you treated your sister or an ex or you find
yourself trying to get your self in order, you might want to think about your motivation for doing so. It could be love.
Do You Already Have Her?
So, if this list seems to describe your current girlfriend, you, my friend, are balling!. In fact, you are probably
the envy of all of your friends, even if they tease you for losing your status as “player.” However, if the woman you are dating is more like the polar opposite, then I don’t think that getting serious with her would be in your best interest — but you knew that already, didn’t you?
