8 Signs of a Man Who Will Never Ever Stop Loving You

8 Signs of a Man Who Will Never Ever Stop Loving You

We men sometimes get a bad rap. The stereotypical “man” doesn’t do any of the following. However, the only men who are actually like this are created by writers as sitcom fodder (hopefully). In truth, when a man finds the person he knows he’ll be spending the rest of his life with, he’ll certainly work his hardest to keep them by his side at all times. If you have a man that adheres to the following, you know he’s a keeper for life.

1. He’s fully committed to you and your relationship together.

    Being there throughout the good times is easy. It’s when the going gets tough that it’s important that you both stick together. Real men don’t run out after a little fight, and they don’t take it out on their significant others when they’re in a bad mood. They understand how important their relationship is, and won’t let anything at all get in the way of persevering.

    2. He doesn’t avoid problems.

      Like I said, a real man doesn’t run out when things get rough. And he also doesn’t bottle up his feelings until he explodes, either. If something is bothering him within the relationship, he brings it up carefully and respectfully. He is comfortable talking through the issues he’s been having, and will make a genuine effort to fix any underlying issue that’s been plaguing the relationship. He understands that even major problems don’t define the relationship; it’s how you both work through them that does.

      3. He pays attention to the little things.

        If he lived alone, he probably wouldn’t care if the dishes weren’t done, the garbage was overflowing, or if the only thing to eat in the house was pizza rolls. But he knows you care about these things, so he takes time away from what he enjoys doing to make sure the house is clean and the fridge is stocked. He won’t ever watch a movie you both love without you by his side, and he lets you pick the iPod playlist in the car. Even if he really, really despises Top 40 radio…

        4. He is smart and wise.

          I’ll give you the benefit of the doubt that you picked a smart one. But the true measure of a man’s intelligence is not simply how smart he is, but what he does with his wisdom. He sees things from an objective point of view, and is able to give you great advice with any situation you face. He puts himself in your shoes constantly, so he understands exactly what you’re going through, and he doesn’t blow you off with half-hearted cliches. And you just know he will pass on great words of wisdom to your future children.

          5. He wants you to feel good about yourself.

            He thinks you’re beautiful; why would he be with you if he didn’t? But it’s not enough for him to think so; he also goes to great lengths to make sure you know you’re beautiful. And it’s not just simple words of reassurance, either. He’ll be able to sense when you think you’re having a bad hair day, and make it a point to compliment your ‘do. He’ll come up with ways to make you feel beautiful, inside and out, regardless of how you feel at the time. He’ll do whatever he can to make you see yourself as he sees you each and every day.

            6. He makes your problems his own.

              If something’s bothering you, it bothers him. He will take on your problems and try to figure out ways to solve them, or at least get through them with the least amount of pain possible. Your issues keep him up at night, but that doesn’t bother him. What does bother him is when you’re facing a problem that he can’t help you with. When these situations inevitably arise, he does the best he can by standing by your side no matter what.

              7. He laughs at your mistakes.

                He knows everyone makes mistakes, and he’s able to shrug yours off easily. If you say something that offended him, he knows you didn’t mean it. He’ll laugh it off, even if it did sting a little. If you let him down in some way (like you had to stay late at work even though he had a nice dinner planned), he won’t hold it against you. He may be caring and sensitive, but he’ll never make you feel bad for unintentionally hurting his feelings.

                8. He takes his own mistakes seriously.

                On the other hand, anything he does that ends up hurting you will weigh heavy on his shoulders for a long while. He rarely beats himself up about much, but when he causes you pain, he’ll do anything to right his wrongs. He’ll never tell his love to “lighten up” or that he “was only kidding.” He knows you enough to know exactly what to do to harm you, but he would never in a million years dream of doing so.

                  30 Small Habits To Lead A More Peaceful Life

                  30 Small Habits To Lead A More Peaceful Life

                  In today’s world, true peace must come from within us and our own actions. Here are 30 small things you can do on a regular basis to increase your overall sense of harmony, peace, and well-being:

                  1. Don’t go to every fight you’re invited to

                  Particularly when you’re around those who thrive on chaos, be willing to decline the invitation to join in on the drama.

                  2. Focus on your breath

                  Throughout the day, stop to take a few deep breaths. Keep stress at bay with techniques such as “square breathing.” Breathe in for four counts, hold for four counts, then out for four counts, and hold again for four counts. Repeat this cycle four times.

                  3. Get organized and purge old items

                  A cluttered space often creates a cluttered spirit. Take the time to get rid of anything you haven’t used in a year and invest in organizational systems that help you sustain a level of neatness.

                  4. Stop yourself from being judgmental

                  Whenever you are tempted to have an opinion about someone else’s life, check your intentions. Judging others creates and promotes negative energy.

                  5. Say ‘thank you’ early and often

                  Start and end each day with an attitude of gratitude. Look for opportunities in your daily routine and interactions to express appreciation.

                  6. Smile more

                  Even if you have to “fake it until you make it,” there are many scientific benefits of smiling and laughing. Also, pay attention to your facial expression when you are doing neutral activities such as driving and walking. Turn that frown upside down!

                  7. Don’t worry about the future

                  As difficult as this sounds, there is a direct connection between staying in the present and living a more peaceful life. You cannot control the future. As the old proverb goes, “Worry is like a rocking chair. It gives you something to do, but it won’t get you anywhere.” Practice gently bringing your thoughts back to the present.

                  8. Eat real food

                  The closer the food is to the state from which it came from the earth, the better you will feel in eating it. Choose foods that grew from a plant over food that was made in a plant.

                  9. Choose being happy over being right

                  Too often, we sacrifice inner peace in order to make a point. It’s rarely worth it.

                  10. Keep technology out of the bedroom

                  Many studies, such as one conducted by Brigham and Women’s Hospital, have connected blue light of electronic devices before bed to adverse sleep and overall health. To make matters worse, many people report that they cannot resist checking email and social media when their cell phone is in reach of their bed, regardless of the time.

                  11. Make use of filtering features on social media

                  You may not want to “unfriend” someone completely, however you can choose whether you want to follow their posts and/or the sources of information that they share.

                  12. Get comfortable with silence

                  When you picture someone who is the ultimate state of peace, typically they aren’t talking.

                  13. Listen to understand, not to respond

                  So often in conversations, we use our ears to give us cues about when it is our turn to say what we want to say. Practice active listening, ask questions, process, then speak.

                  14. Put your troubles in a bubble

                  Whenever you start to feel anxious, visualize the situation being wrapped in a bubble and then picture that sphere floating away.

                  15. Speak more slowly

                  Often a lack of peace manifests itself in fast or clipped speech. Take a breath, slow down, and let your thoughtful consideration drive your words.

                  16. Don’t procrastinate

                  Nothing adds stress to our lives like waiting until the last minute.

                  17. Buy a coloring book

                  Mandala coloring books for adults are becoming more popular because of their connection to creating inner peace.

                  18. Prioritize yourself

                  You are the only person who you are guaranteed to live with 24 hours a day for the rest of your life.

                  19. Forgive others

                  Holding a grudge is hurting you exponentially more than anyone else. Let it go.

                  20. Check your expectations

                  Presumption often leads to drama. Remember the old saying, “Expectations are premeditated resentments.”

                  21. Engage in active play

                  Let your inner child come out and have some fun. Jump, dance, play, and pretend!

                  22. Stop criticizing yourself

                  The world is a hard enough place with more than enough critics. Your life is not served well by being one of them.

                  23. Focus your energy and attention on what you want

                  Thoughts, words, and actions all create energy. Energy attracts like energy. Put out what you want to get back.

                  Advertising

                  24. Assign yourself “complaint free” days.

                  Make a conscious decision not to complain about anything for a whole day. It might be harder than you think and the awareness will stick with you.

                  25. Surround yourself with people you truly enjoy being in the company of

                  Personalities tend to be contagious, and not everyone’s is worth catching. Be judicious in your choices.

                  26. Manage your money

                  Financial concerns rank top on the list of what causes people stress. Take the time each month to do a budget, calculate what you actually spend and sanity check that against the money you have coming in.

                  27. Stop trying to control everything

                  Not only is your inner control freak sabotaging your sense of peace, it is also likely getting in the way of external relationships as well.

                  28. Practice affirmations

                  Repeat positive phrases that depict the life and qualities you want to attract. It may not come naturally to you, but it works.

                  29. Get up before sunrise

                  Personally witnessing the dawn brings a unique sense of awe and appreciation for life.

                  30. Be yourself

                  Nothing creates more inner discord than trying to be something other than who we really are. Authenticity breeds happiness.
