7 Signs He Might Be The One

"The just man walketh in his integrity" Proverbs 20:7

We all have a tough time decoding the opposite sex. The more we are around guys, the more confused we can get! Amen? I mean, what language are they speaking? Is that even English? I’m stumped. When we look at little quirks guys have, we may not see the real gem that the guy is. I’ve put together a list of 7 signs that might tell you he is “the one”. This is not by all means a fool-proof list but it was created to get you thinking a different way about the guy in your life {or future guy.}

1.) HE VALUES YOUR TIME

You call and ask if he wants to go to lunch tomorrow at a local hangout…and he actually shows up! Not only that, he makes plans for the next day and keeps that as well. The fact is he cares enough about spending time with you and doesn’t like standing you up. That has to count for something!

2.) HE RESPECTS YOUR DECISIONS

You may not see eye to eye on a lot of topics but when you decide you believe in something, he takes you at your word. Sure, he can put in his two cents if he feels you aren’t making a wise choice but overall he understands you are your own person and allows you to make decisions. Even if it’s as simple as what toppings you want on the pizza.

3.) HE ENCOURAGES YOUR DREAMS

Okay so he may not know a lot {or even a little} about being a super awesome teacher, accountant, ballerina, concession stand worker, street performer or a blogger but he knows it’s important to you. He sees what you are passionate about and provides positive encouragement. Even if it’s a simple “Go get ’em, babe” that’s guy talk for “You can do it! I believe in you!”

4.) HE LISTENS TO YOUR ISSUES

Whether it’s the big things or the small stuff, he listens. If he lets you go on and on about your school/work issues or your cat’s insane cardboard box fetish, it shows a lot of patience in his character. Having an open dialogue is important, regardless of the topic. He will be a good listener and respond to what your heart is talking about.

5.) HE CONFIDES HIS ISSUES

His turn! He has listened to you for a good hour complain about your co-worker’s tuna and pineapple sandwiches, now he has something on his heart to share. He feels comfortable to confide in you so let him without judgement. Let it come natural and don’t force it. Trying to force information out of any guy is a road leading to Cut Off Cliff.

6.) HE LOVES HIS FAMILY

And doesn’t mind yours! Family is a big deal to us. We are super close and have tons of parties. It is rough when you are dating a guy who just sits in the corner not speaking to anyone. Maybe he is just shy but maybe that is a sign he is just not that into your family. My husband and I have a blast with both sides. We are blessed and we know it. He loves playing with my little brother and talking to my mother, and I love having heart to heart chats with his sisters. If he can tolerate your dad’s baked bean outbursts {if you smell my drift} without gagging, keep him around a bit longer {at least before he passes out.}

7.) HE GIVES TO OTHERS

One of the best things about my man is that he loves to help someone. He knows his strengths and talents and doesn’t mind helping or giving advice. It could be fixing the neighbor’s car, helping his mother pick up after dinner, helping a friend move into a new apartment or lending a hand during a church service. Whatever it is, big or small, it shows the ability to think of someone other than himself.

We all know the dating world can be crazy, to say the least. Like I said before, this is merrily a small guideline to get you thinking about him in a different way. I truly believe dating is an interview process for marriage. This list may help you, it may not, it could be something to read and laugh at. Just do me a favor: take your time! Don’t rush down the aisle or obsess over the latest wedding mag. Watch your guy, how he acts around other guys AND girls. Listen to what he says and HOW he says them. Take inventory of what you’ve learned and build your choices off of that list. Above all, pray! Seek Godly counsel and stay under proper authority. You will be blessed by doing it the right way.
