15 Signs That You Have A Great Girlfriend

15 Signs That You Have A Great Girlfriend

If you’re dating a girl, check off these 15 signs that you have a great girlfriend. If you find a girl who fits this description, hold onto her!

1. She likes the same things.

You both like going to the movies, swimming, and you have pretty similar views on which people should be locked up. Not that you agree on everything, of course, but at least you are on the same track 90% of the time.

2. She never interferes with your work.

Yoko Ono (John Lennon’s second wife) once remarked in an interview, “In a way both John and I ruined our careers by getting together.”  However, the break up of The Beatles was a complex and long drawn out affair.

3. She tells you why she is in a bad mood.

Nobody can be a in a good mood all the time. She tells you why something is wrong, what happened at work to make her mad and why she is in a foul temper. Some people call that real communication.

4. She loves you for who you are, not for what you do.

Lots of famous people attract others because of their stardom. Tim Tebow makes it very clear that he wants a kind and sweet girl who is not dazzled by his fame.

5. She is not trying to change you.

You know the types who want to mold you into Mr. Perfect. There may be a few things that need fixing, but a great girlfriend adjusts to imperfections and can accept the fact that your hair style is a little bit different or that your weight is over or under a certain limit.

    6. She has no problems with her own body image.

    She is not trying to change her body all the time. She is not obsessed with dieting or going to the gym. She is perfectly at ease with herself.

    7. She is not the owner of your free time.

    Basically, she does not complain that you have sixty dozen things on your to do list. She allows you time for yourself without being clingy or complaining.

    8. She shares your values.

    You both “click” on how people should be treated. You have definite views on what education is and how important honesty is. Above all, you have very clear ideas on money and how it should be spent. It doesn’t matter whether you are a cheapskate or a big spender, as long as you are both in the same category!

    9. She is open with you.

    You know about her childhood and the problems she had because she has talked openly about these things. You know all about her worries and her little obsessions. You know about them because she wants a friend who loves her not only for all her brilliant qualities but her defects as well.

    10. She is a good listener.

    She wants to know what went wrong with that project at work or why you got mad with your boss. She is not afraid to ask for details. Her questions are focused on where you are coming from. She offers advice when asked for it.

    11. She is such fun to be with.

    You laugh at the same things. You enjoy lots of things together. You appreciate each others’ silly jokes, cartoon characters, stupid songs and crazy things on Facebook.

    12. She loves hanging out with your friends and family.

    You never have a problem when you want to do things with your or her group of friends. She fits in with your family so easily. There is no jealousy or undercurrents which could become toxic.

    13. She never asks for advice about clothes.

    She never asks you to help her choose clothes and would never dream of asking you whether a certain color suits her. She does not need that kind of advice because she is perfectly confident and poised.

    14. She knows how to surprise you.

    She knows how to spring a surprise on you. That can be anything from a different outing, a sudden change of plans or anything else which breaks the routine. Too much routine turns into boredom.

    15. She never nags you.

    She is the one who can let the small things go so that you can feel perfectly at ease in her company. You are both relieved that there is no nit-picking or nagging. You have both moved on and upgraded. You are now on a journey of personal growth and mutual self improvement.

    This is a perfect description of your great girlfriend, isn’t it? Or is it all too good to be true? If it is, then you might have to rethink what you are really looking for in a great girlfriend.
