10 Small Thoughtful Habits That Tell He Is A Man Worth Marrying

10 Small Thoughtful Habits That Tell He Is A Man Worth Marrying

Marriage is a major decision and you want to make sure the man you are wanting to marry has some good thoughtful habits. This article will discuss 10 thoughtful habits to look for before marrying your man.

Please add a few more of your own in the comment section below.

1. He starts the day by giving you a kiss.

Everyday is a new beginning, he starts his by always giving you a good morning kiss. This is one of the best and simplest ways to know he is consistent, plus it gets you in great mood to start your day.

2. He would rather listen than talk.

After a long, short, bad or good day, he is ready to hear about your day. He patiently waits until you finish and supports whatever decision you had made for the day. He basically has your back 100% – just like you have his.

3. He cooks.

Sure, it is always easy to order take-out and call it night. However, the ideal man would rather cook a simple meal for his family. There’s nothing like coming home from work and eating a home-cooked pasta with some wine.

4. He cuddles.

Once the day is over and you are relaxing with a glass of wine reading or watching a movie, he is right there hugging you (with his beer). I am not referring to just hugging and sitting on the couch and watching a movie. He will hug you, occasionally kiss you, offer to fill up your glass, and sometimes even massage your feet.

5. He is a pleaser.

He does whatever is necessary to please you during sex. He is romantic when you are in the mood for romance. He is spontaneous and exciting when you are in the mood for adventure or feel like letting your wild side out. He is not scared of a little adventure, a little sex in the movie theater, a park, or on a rooftop – depending on the mood, of course.

6. He enjoys your friends and family.

Marriage is life-long contract and it is important that everyone involved gets along and respects each other. He is very loving and understanding with your family and friends. He is willing to be the designated driver for you and your friends. He is also willing to shuttle your family back and front from the airport. He does not make a big fuss about where Thanksgiving or Christmas get-togethers should be.

7. He loves the little ones.

He absolutely loves playing with kids. When you go to your sister’s house, he is always playing Hide-N-Go-Seek or playfully chasing your nieces and nephews. He makes children feel safe, reads them stories, and is even willing to babysit occasionally. Imagine watching him crawling on all fours and chasing those adorable kids.

8. He is financially responsible.

No matter what kind of job he has, he is not the type to live beyond his means. He is responsible and pays his bills on time. He also makes plans for his future – hopefully a future with you.

9. He notices you.

While at a Christmas party or an evening gala, he compliments how good you look. He looks right at you, even when he is in a crowd. He makes you feel like you are the only one that matters. You are indeed the only person that matters to him at that moment and you can feel it without him saying a word. You can tell just by the way he is looking at you.

10. He takes care of himself.

He does some form of physical activity at least 5 times per week – whether it’s weights, running, biking, rock climbing, or Cross-fit.   He takes pride in the way he looks. He has a well groomed beard. He also dresses sharply and always smells good (except of course while training). He reads books and takes care of his mental health as much as his physical health.

5 Smart Reasons to Start Journal Writing Today

5 Smart Reasons to Start Journal Writing Today

Here’s the truth: your effectiveness at life is not what it could be. You’re missing out.

Each day passes by and you have nothing to prove that it even happened. Did you achieve something? Go on a date? Have an emotional breakthrough? Who knows?

But what you do know is that you don’t want to make the same mistakes that you’ve made in the past.

Our lives are full of hidden gems of knowledge and insight, and the most recent events in our lives contain the most useful gems of all. Do you know why? It’s simple, those hidden lessons are the most up to date, meaning they have the largest impact on what we’re doing right now.

But the question is, how do you get those lessons? There’s a simple way to do it, and it doesn’t involve time machines:

Journal writing.

Improved mental clarity, the ability to see our lives in the big picture, as well as serving as a piece of evidence cataloguing every success we’ve ever had; we are provided all of the above and more by doing some journal writing.

Journal writing is a useful and flexible tool to help shed light on achieving your goals.

Here’s 5 smart reasons why you should do journal writing:

1. Journals Help You Have a Better Connection with Your Values, Emotions, and Goals

By journaling about what you believe in, why you believe it, how you feel, and what your goals are, you understand your relationships with these things better. This is because you must sort through the mental clutter and provide details on why you do what you do and feel what you feel.

Consider this:

Perhaps you’ve spent the last year or so working at a job you don’t like. It would be easy to just suck it up and keep working with your head down, going on as if it’s supposed to be normal to not like your job. Nobody else is complaining, so why should you, right?

But a little journal writing will set things straight for you. You don’t like your job. You feel like it’s robbing you of happiness and satisfaction, and you don’t see yourself better there in the future.

The other workers? Maybe they don’t know, maybe they don’t care. But you do, you know and care enough to do something about it. And you’re capable of fixing this problem because your journal writing allows you to finally be honest with yourself about it.

2. Journals Improve Mental Clarity and Help Improve Your Focus

If there’s one thing journal writing is good for, it’s clearing the mental clutter.

How does it work? Simply, whenever you have a problem and write about it in a journal, you transfer the problem from your head to the paper. This empties the mind, allowing allocation of precious resources to problem-solving rather than problem-storing.

Let’s say you’ve been juggling several tasks at work. You’ve got data entry, testing, e-mails, problems with the boss, and so on—enough to overwhelm you—but as you start journal writing, things become clearer and easier to understand: Data entry can actually wait till Thursday; Bill kindly offered earlier to do my testing; For e-mails, I can check them now; the boss is just upset because Becky called in sick, etc.

You become better able to focus and reason your tasks out, and this is an indispensable and useful skill to have.

3. Journals Improve Insight and Understanding

As a positive consequence of improving your mental clarity, you become more open to insights you may have missed before. As you write your notes out, you’re essentially having a dialogue with yourself. This draws out insights that you would have missed otherwise; it’s almost as if two people are working together to better understand each other. This kind of insight is only available to the person who has taken the time to connect with and understand themselves in the form of writing.

Once you’ve gotten a few entries written down, new insights can be gleaned from reading over them. What themes do you see in your life? Do you keep switching goals halfway through? Are you constantly dating the same type of people who aren’t good for you? Have you slowly but surely pushed people out of your life for fear of being hurt?

All of these questions can be answered by simply self-reflecting, but you can only discover the answers if you’ve captured them in writing. These questions are going to be tough to answer without a journal of your actions and experiences.

4. Journals Track Your Overall Development

Life happens, and it can happen fast. Sometimes we don’t take the time to stop and look around at what’s happening to us at each moment. We don’t get to see the step-by-step progress that we’re making in our own lives. So what happens? One day it’s the future, and you have no idea how you’ve gotten there.

Journal writing allows you to see how you’ve changed over time, so you can see where you did things right, and you can see where you took a misstep and fell.

The great thing about journals is that you’ll know what that misstep was, and you can make sure it doesn’t happen again—all because you made sure to log it, allowing yourself to learn from your mistakes.

5. Journals Facilitate Personal Growth

The best thing about journal writing is that no matter what you end up writing about, it’s hard to not grow from it. You can’t just look at a past entry in which you acted shamefully and say “that was dumb, anyway!” No, we say “I will never make a dumb choice like that again!”

It’s impossible not to grow when it comes to journal writing. That’s what makes journal writing such a powerful tool, whether it’s about achieving goals, becoming a better person, or just general personal-development. No matter what you use it for, you’ll eventually see yourself growing as a person.

Kickstart Journaling

How can journaling best be of use to you? To vent your emotions? To help achieve your goals? To help clear your mind? What do you think makes journaling such a useful life skill?

Know the answer? Then it’s about time you reap the benefits of journal writing and start putting pen to paper.

Here’s what you can do to start journaling:
