Houston Matchmakers Reveal 5 Signs You Landed a Keeper

You’re dating this guy and think he’s the one.  Let’s hope he is!  You bring him up in conversation every chance you get and can’t get your mind off him.  You might be asking yourself what makes him so special.  Everyone knows that perfection doesn’t exist, so what puts your boyfriend above other guys?  Is it the way he looks?  Is it the way he prepares your favorite dinner every weekend?  Is it how he tolerates your mood swings once a month?  Our Houston matchmakers know there is no secret formula to determine if you have the perfect boyfriend, but there are certainly a few things you can keep an eye for that will tell you he’s a keeper.

These things have nothing to do with the way he looks, what he says, or the romantic gestures he makes.  Though he might not watch your favorite rom-coms with you on the weekends, he could still be your keeper.  So get ready as our Houston matchmakers reveal the telltale signs you landed yourself a keeper.

1. He takes care of you when you’re sick.

Even though you probably don’t want him when you’re sick, covered in tissues, and vomiting all over the place, he’s there to help you pick up the Kleenex from the floor.  Most guys, or shall we say most people, don’t want to get sick.  They want to stay as far away from you as they can when you’re feeling under the weather.  Most people would say that you and your germs can entertain each other until this sickness is gone.

Not your boyfriend, though, because he’s right there by your side, bringing you a bowl of hot soup (your favorite one), sitting by your side caressing your forehead and covering you with a blanky to keep you warm.  He is most certainly pestering you to drink more fluids because he knows how important it is for you to stay hydrated while you’re sick.  If your boyfriend does these kind and caring things for you, he is a keeper.

2. He always puts you first.

Your boyfriend is at the complete opposite end of the spectrum of selfish.  He doesn’t pick the restaurant he loves but rather lets you pick.  He lets you buy your favorite brand of cereal and makes sure you’ve eaten plenty of it to go to work with energy.  He even holds the door open for you everywhere you go.  This is the definition of a keeper.  If your boyfriend pampers you and makes you feel like a princess—not just at home but everywhere you go—then you landed yourself a keeper.

He checks with you to make sure you got to work safely, and if you have a presentation, he checks in with you afterwards to see how you did.  He cancels plans with his friends because you’re feeling sick, even though he was looking forward to seeing his boys all week.  This kindhearted guy always puts you first no matter what is going on in his life. This is the type of relationship most women only wish to have, and you already have it, so never let it go.

3. He plans fun outings.

Somewhere in the hustle and bustle of everyday life, many couples forget how to have fun in their relationship.  Couples go from being a youthful, spontaneous duo to a stale old couple who sits at home watching TV and ordering take-out.  Although your man enjoys the occasional Netflix marathon at home, he still takes time to plan fun outings for the two of you, such as go-carting, miniature golfing, indoor skydiving, winetasting, and dancing.  And these are just a few of the places he takes you on date night.

He thinks of fun outings to do together at least once or twice a month.  This makes him a keeper because he knows how important it is to keep the relationship exciting and fun.  Instead of falling into the trap of getting comfortable and letting the relationship become stagnant and boring, he’s putting in efforts to keep it alive and thriving.

4. He’s by your side during that time of the month.

You would be perfectly happy if he just bought you a box of chocolate and sat it outside of your bedroom door, along with some cramp pills, a heating pad, and a bottle of red.  But that’s not your boyfriend.  He doesn’t think you’re crazy during that time of the month.  He thinks it’s funny when the Hulk Hogan comes out of you and takes him by surprise.  He probably even makes fun of you a little bit, and as much as your hormones tell you to take your anger out on him, you just can’t do it.

He makes you smile and laugh when all you want to do is cry.  And instead of locking yourself in your room and avoiding him, you enjoy his company.

5. He’s highly domesticated.

How many times have you heard the words: “A woman’s place is in the kitchen”?  Hopefully never from your boyfriend or anyone you know.

Now, how about the phrase: “The way to one’s heart is through the stomach”?  Now, that one we do like.  There is nothing sexier than a man who knows his way around the kitchen and the rest of the home.  If your man knows how to do the dishes, prepare a meal, take out the trash, do chores, and clean, do we really have to say it to you?  Okay, let’s say it anyways: he is a keeper!

Dig in your talons and never let him go because you have landed what many women in the world only wish to have in a partner.  Your boyfriend is likely going to be an example of a great husband to you and a great father to your future children.
