8 Signs He's a Keeper

Recently we had the pleasure of spending an evening with a 30-something couple we had introduced to each other about 18 months ago. 

Watching the two of them together for the first time was a real treat. As we reflected on how we began working with the female client about two years ago, we kept marveling at how natural and at ease they were with each other. She admitted that she had wasted a lot of time in the past and wished she had known how to discern the “Mr. Right Now’s” from the ”Mr. Right’s” right away.

So, if you want to make sure he’s a keeper, look for these eight telltale signs early in the relationship:

  1. He doesn’t play games. One of the most significant ways you can tell a man is a keeper is that he’s honest and genuine with you. If he wants to see you, he will make sure it happens; if he wants to plan something with you in advance, he will. He won’t play games because he is sure about how he feels about you and wants to be clear with you. When he thinks you’re a keeper, he will make sure that he keeps you off the market!

  2. He listens to you. This is by far the #1 way a man shows his interest in you early on. He also makes you feel heard and understood which creates intimacy and helps us settle into our femininity and receptivity. Win-Win!

  3. He’s super reliable. Words sell. Actions tell. Many times, men will say what they think a woman wants to hear. The guy who’s in it to win it will back those words up with his actions, consistently. Watch a little more than you listen.

  4. He shows genuine interest in what you love. He will try to get to know your world and what you value, even if it’s out of his comfort zone. Now that’s sexy!

  5. He’s very thoughtful. A keeper goes the extra mile for you even when he doesn’t have to - whether you’re sick, need a ride, had a bad day – he will show you how he feels about you and that you can count on him.

  6. He respects your opinion. He seeks your opinion on personal matters and values your perspective and wisdom. This is the sign of a true partnership.

  7. He makes you feel safe and like you’re in a relationship. One of the best gifts my husband gave me very early on in our relationship was the gift of transparency. He made it very clear that he felt I was a keeper and we had something special which made me feel immediately safe and secure in our relationship.

  8. He introduces you to his people. While it’s never advisable to integrate your friends/family with a new relationship too soon, it’s always a good sign when he wants you to meet his people within the first 2-3 months (after you’ve established a foundation).
