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.

    8 Powerful Reasons to Love Your Enemies

    8 Powerful Reasons to Love Your Enemies

    We’ve all got our enemies; people who take pleasure in causing us pain and misery. Sometimes, the development of an enemy is due to certain differences in your characters and events have led to that. Other times, some people end up hating you for apparently no reason at all.

    Regardless of how you got this enemy, as opposed to the paradigm of fighting fire with fire, consider the following reasons and see why you should actually appreciate your enemies. This article will show you not only how to not be bothered by your enemies, but how to actually foster love for them.

    Read on to learn the secret.

    1. It’s a practical lesson in anger management

    To be honest, your enemies are the best people to help you understand your sense of anger management. When it might be true that your enemies have a way of bringing out the worst in you as regards anger, it is also true that they can help you in your quest to have that anger managed. You can’t get truly angry at someone you love and it is only in that time when you get truly annoyed that you learn how to manage it.

    Anger management is more effective when it is in practice and not in theory

    Your enemies are like the therapists who you need, but actually don’t want. Inasmuch as you might want to hate them, they provide you an opportunity to control the anger impulse that you have.

    2. It’s an opportunity for healthy competition

    You might not know it, but your enemies make for great rivals as they help harness the competitor in you (sometimes, you might not even know or bee conversant with this competitive side until you come across an adversary). You get the right motivation to compete and this can go a long way to spur you to victory.

    However, while doing so, it is also essential that you remember not to become a worse version of yourself while competing. Working against an adversary is tricky, and you need to ensure that you don’t cause harm to yourself or your morals in the process. Healthy competition is all you need to get out of this.

    3. Their negative comments can help you make a breakthrough

    It is true that your enemies never really have much good to say about you. However, in as much as they might be talking out of a place of hate, there might be some truth to what they’re saying.

    To wit, whenever you hear something mean or nasty from an enemy, you might want to take a step back and evaluate yourself. There is a chance that what this enemy is saying is true and coming to face that fact is a major step in helping you to become a better person overall. This is another testament to the fact that enemies can be therapists in their own way.

    4. Enemies can also be powerful allies

    Loving your enemies can also mean making an effort to interact and make peace with them. In the end, if you are able to establish some common ground and patch things up, you’ll have succeeded in making another friend. And who doesn’t need friends?

    This can also help you in working with people in the long run. You get to hone your inter-personal skills, and that can be a big plus to your ledger.

    5. It gives you the ability to realize positivity

    In a multitude of negativity, a speck of positivity always seems to find its way through.

    Sometimes, a knowledge of the fact that you have enemies will also help you to focus on the many positives and good things that are in your life. A lot of times, we neglect what really matters in life. This can be due to being overly concerned with the enemies we have.

    However, it is also possible for this acknowledgement to spur you to take a step back and appreciate the goo things (and people who surround you).

    6. There might just be a misunderstanding

    Sometimes, the reason why you have an enemy might be something very innocuous. You might not have known the cause of this fractured relationship and your enemy will help complete the picture.

    Simply approaching them will help you to understand the reason for the fracture. This, in turn, can help you to work towards healing your relationship moving forward. Misunderstandings happen, and you need to be able to work around them.

    7. You learn to appreciate love as well

    A constant reminder of the fact that there are enemies will also help you not to take those who love you for granted. Love and hate are two opposing emotions and it is possible for one to momentarily overshadow the other.

    However, while you’ll always have enemies, there will also always be people who love you. These people need to be appreciated for what they do for you. Never let the hate projected to you from your enemies take the place of that.

    8. Do you really need the hate?

    The truth is that enemies bring only toxic emotions and generate bad reactions from you. If you’re truly to live a prosperous life, you can’t really be carrying all this baggage around.

    Hate is bad and you should try all you can to get rid of it. It is a well-known fact that nobody can get really far in life while carrying a lot of emotional baggage. Well, hate is the biggest form of emotional baggage there is.
