Looking for the right guy, finding the right partner, spot a keeper, someone who is right for you, dating the right guy

Dating can sometimes be tedious especially when you have to weed through the masses. Of course your ultimate goal is to find that needle in the haystack. Here are 8 things that you should be looking for that signal this guy is a keeper.

1. A guy who really listens to you. Listening shows someone is really interested in you. Good communication is the key to a great relationship.
2. A guy who is intelligent. You and your partner should be evenly matched when it comes to intelligence.
3. A guy who shares your interests. There is a popular saying that “opposites attract,” but it is important to share some interests, especially in areas like recreational and social activities.
4. A guy who is romantic and affectionate. One of the ways to feel “emotionally” connected to your man is through touch.
5. A guy who cares about his personal appearance. Chances are if someone is sloppy about their personal appearance, that sloppiness will show up in other areas of life as well.
6. A guy with a stable career. A successful career means “safety” and “security,” especially for women who are seeking marriage. Money means many things to a woman: the luxury of being able to take time away from her own work or career when meeting the demands of raising a family, the security of a comfortable and safe retirement and a nice home.
7. A guy with a great sense of humor. Spend the rest of your life with someone who makes you laugh! He doesn’t have to be Robin Williams and put on a stand up act, but being able to see the funny side of life and not be too serious goes a long way toward future happiness.
8. A guy who has a good attitude. Seek out a partner who has an easy- going attitude. Avoid someone who is negative and always complaining. If you are always walking on eggshells around someone, you will soon be in constant pain.
