Being that there are so many lists that talk about signs that a dude needs to wife his girl up, we thought we’d do things a little differently. So ladies, listen up! If you’re dying to know just what you need to do to reel that hunk into the marital boat, you should probably take a few notes and get that engagement chicken cooking.
Even though some of these may seem a bit unconventional (since when is fighting a GOOD thing, right?!) in nature, they’re completely foolproof. So ladies, if you’re on the fence about whether your man is marriage material, these will surely put your doubts to rest.
1. He complains. Yes, Really!
Yes, Really! Let’s be clear: If your guy complains about doing chores, but does them anyway, that shows just how much he loves you. Honestly, it barely counts if he likes doing it. There’s a certain beauty in that logic.
2. He argues with you. But you both get over it.
Alright, hear us out on this one. What could be better than having full blown make-up sex?
3. He isn’t obsessed with social media.
It’s borderline impossible to become addicted to online porn if he rarely uses the computer. Also, he’s even more of a keeper if he doesn’t constantly post Facebook statuses on the daily that update you on what he had for lunch and just how beautiful the sky is.
4. He’ll cry but isn’t a crier.
There are a handful of times that a man is allowed to cry: when his foot is caught in bear trap, traumatic world events, reciting to the “Star Spangled Banner” or listening to “Cat’s In The Cradle.”
5. He knows how to clean up!
Owning a tuxedo proves a couple of things about a guy:
A. He doesn’t mind going to a black tie event.
B. He makes sound financial decisions—after all, a tux pays for itself around four rentals.
C. He plans on staying about the same size for the foreseeable future.
6. His pearly whites are ON POINT.
A guy who hits the dentist on the regular has nice teeth (and probably OK breath). Also, he most likely takes care of himself to some degree.
But be careful if he’s too obsessed with dental hygiene. No one wants to be blinded by Mr. Shiny Teeth all of the time.
7. He’s on good terms with his mom.
This one is a slippery slope. You want a guy who has a good relationship with his mom but isn’t too close. This will save you a number of instances of accidentally being called “mom”.
Which is the WORST.
8. He understands that naps equal the best things since sliced bread.
One of the most important things in life is sleep. It’s a fact proven by a scientist somewhere, we’re sure. And if he can sleep like a narcoleptic ninja, that increases your chances of doing the same.
9. He’s seen The Notebook.
That movie was…terrible. But if he’s willing to sit through it and not check his phone too many times, he’s definitely a keeper, hands down. If he’s seen it multiple times…he may be a crier.
I would say to snap that boyfriend up if he’s handsome, rich and has a great sense of humor, but there is only one Jimmy Fallon.
