Traits And Characteristics Of An Amazing Girlfriend
True love really does exist, you know? Despite the odds and everything. Maybe there’s more to life than playing the field. Let’s take a look at these things in a girlfriend that will make for a lasting relationship.
She Is Independent
No one gets into a relationship to be a babysitter. If she’s had a rough day at work, it’s great to be her shoulder to cry on. But if she can’t seem to function without you, you’ll eventually suffocate, and if you’re smart you’ll run for the nearest exit.
Independence is key to a happy relationship, for both the man and the woman. You will find you are still getting to know her long after you have gotten serious if she has a host of interests and commitments outside of your relationship.
She Is Intelligent
An intelligent woman will constantly surprise you and keep you on your toes. She won’t let you get bored or complacent. Besides, it’s nice to have something to talk about between all that headboard-rattling sex.
She Is Sexual
While we are on the topic, a great girlfriend has to be sexually compatible with you. The two of you have to be on the same page, it simply means that you and she have an undeniable attraction toward each other and are able to communicate your desires verbally (or with physical cues). It is important that you please each other in the bedroom.
You are Attracted to Her
A great girlfriend will not only want to look good for you, but also for herself. Being seen with her should make you feel better about yourself. And this doesn’t mean that she has to be a Kim Kardashian clone. Whatever floats your boat. Your mutual attraction should make you both want to stay looking your best.
She Respects You
This is a big deal. Your girlfriend must respect you — otherwise you have to wonder why she bothers to be with you. This means that she takes the time to listen to you, even if you are in a heated argument.
A great girlfriend will keep major disputes private rather than taking you down in public. She will make an effort to see things from your point of view (provided you do the same for her). The key here is that the respect be mutual — it’s very hard for one of you to respect the other while feeling disrespected. The golden rule has no better application than in terms of respecting your significant other.
She Doesn’t Nag Without a Good Reason
It is rare to see a man who was convinced to change his behavior because of his girlfriend’s nagging. A great girlfriend knows this and chooses her battles wisely. She knows when to get upset and when to let it slide.
However, if you live together and you stay out all night without calling her, and she lets you have it, then you’re setting yourself up for disaster. This is a situation that nobody would let slide — not even a great girlfriend. Don’t push your luck with anyone, least of all your girlfriend.
She Gets Along With Your Friends and Family
A great girlfriend will make an effort to get to know your people. She will help your parents when you visit, try to understand your brother’s twisted sense of humor, and want to get to know your friends.
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. Of course, everyone has their slightly annoying habits that their mate 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 she 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
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 when you were younger or find yourself trying to get your finances in order to prepare for the future, you might want to think about your motivation for doing so. It could be love.
