(love Will and Jada!)
Just saw this list here of 10 Signs He's a Keeper, but dang, it's rough to work with!
Here's my take on the list (which, by the way, reflects a different set of aspirations than mine for a partner), and here's why:
- He's responsible - Does he remember to do things that a grown, adult person should be doing (paying bills, maintaining the home, etc.)? Are life's responsibilities distributed equally between the two of you? And if he doesn't remember, does he react well when you remind him?
- He's reliable - Contrary to the list, I don't believe you can run to a guy with all of your problems. Isn't that what friends, family, colleagues, and therapists are for? My take is....does he respond well to the problems that he's supposed to solve?
- He respects you - duh. This is a non-negotiable - it's not a sign that I should keep him! Pleeeeeeassse.
