While everyone’s preference is different, why would you ever want to date someone who is constantly calling you and asking you where you are? Or someone who cries and complains twenty four hours a day? Of course, no one is perfect, but there are ways to tell if you are girlfriend material. We all have our bad days, so we don’t have to follow all of these rules all the time, but it’s a good idea to at least try and not do some of these things.
You Don’t Try to Change Him
If you really love him, then you love him the way he is. Is there really any reason to date a guy if you only want him to be someone else? If so, then you don’t actually like him. People are usually happy with the way they are if they act the way they do. Guys don’t want to be around people who are going to give them put downs and analyze everything they do so that they can correct them. No one wants to spend all their time trying to meet someone else’s standards.
You’re Fun to Be Around
Everyone has a point in their life when they need the comfort and appreciation of others. That’s perfectly acceptable! What isn’t acceptable is constantly complaining and crying about your life trying to get some attention and appreciation. Guys want to be with someone who doesn’t need to be comforted 24/7 but who can go out with them and have some fun. You can’t be loved if you don’t love yourself.
If you have six different spies hired watching his every move so that you know where he is all the time, chances are the relationship won’t last. If you want to be with him all the time, he’s going to think you’re needy! Let him know you have a life of your own and hang out with some of your other friends. Guys love strong, independent girls.
You Get Along With His Friends & Family
If everyone he knows and cares about hates you to the point they wish no good of you, chances are he’s going to feel pressure to break up with you (guys are really open, so if one of his friends doesn’t like you, they’ll make sure your guy knows!). It’s unrealistic to say you’ll get along with every person you meet, but try your best to be polite around these important people in his life!
While keeping all this in mind, always remember to be yourself! If you find it’s especially hard to follow one of these rules, chances are it has affected other areas in your life. Ask your girl (and guy!) friends for advice on what they think makes a good girlfriend.
