After listening to so many fairy tales and watching so many romantic comedies, it feels almost magical when you come across “the one.” But falling in love and staying together for the rest of your lives are two completely different things. When you finally come to a decision that who you are with is the one for you, you need to know that he will love you through thick and thin. He should be there when the flaming passion dies out and when you are old and covered in wrinkles.
If you feel you have found the perfect person to spend your life with, or if you are looking for one, here are some of the traits that show he is going to love you forever.
1. He Admits His Mistakes
Usually, ego comes in the way of most couples and they end up calling it quits. If your man has too much ego, then it means he does not love you enough. A man who will love you for an eternity will know when to give up his ego and when to admit to his mistake. He will even apologize for his mistake so that there is no bad blood between the two of you. For him, the love you share will always be more important than holding on to petty grudges.
2. He Respects You
Respect is the most important part of any relationship. If a man loves you, he will show it in his actions. One thing you should keep in mind is that respecting and pampering are two different things. If a guy showers you with gifts all the time but does not treat you well, he does not respect you. A man who respects you cares about your thoughts and opinions, he listens to you, talks to you politely, and helps you around the house. He knows that the two of you are in this together and does not expect you to take care of his every need.
3. He Loves You For What’s On The Inside
A man who truly loves you knows that superficial beauty is temporary and what really matters is what’s on the inside. Even when you have rollers in your hair or you are in pajamas, he will find you beautiful. When he compliments you, it will not only be about the way you look. He will compliment you on your personality and your sense of humor too. Such a man will love you even when you have wrinkles and gray hair.
4. He Shares His Emotions
Women expect men to be tough and strong physically and even with their emotions. But men do have emotions. It’s just that they are not comfortable showing their emotions to other people. They need to have a certain level of comfort with the person they are sharing their emotions with, especially if the emotions are associated with weakness. If your man is sensitive and shows you the gentler side of his personality, then he will take care of you and your feelings for a long time. He will not only connect with you on a physical level but also on an emotional level.
5. He Is Not Afraid To Take The Backseat
In a relationship, it feels good to have a man who takes charge of situations and who takes care of you, but if your man has this attitude all the time, it is not good for your relationship. A man who loves you understands when it is time for him to take the backseat. He lets you take control of situations and loves watching you be the powerful woman that you are, without feeling intimidated. He will not mind being told what to do, not all the time of course. He will always trust your judgment.
So ladies, if you find a man with these amazing qualities, don’t let go, but you should not end up being too clingy either. You should respect each other’s personal space no matter how committed you are. And never compare your man to someone else. If you feel anything is not working out, talk to him about it. Communication is the key to every long-lasting, loving relationship.
