Falling in love feels amazing, but relationships are a lot of work. Especially when a relationship is new, many people often wonder whether or not it’s meant to last. Even the relationships that have lasted for quite some time can have the insecurities of whether or not the relationship is meant to last. Fortunately, many people show some kind of sign that they want to be with their partner forever. If you’re wondering about how long your relationship is going to last, look at these signs that your partner wants to be with you for as long as possible.
1. He likes being domestic with you
You might as well be living together, since you spend every weekend at his place (or your place). You have clothes, toothbrushes, and towels stashed away for sleepovers. He doesn’t really cook, but he gets jazzed to go grocery shopping together and make a meal with you.
2. He talks about living with you
If he’s shopping around for a place for the two of you to live together, he likely has the intention of staying with you forever. If he is willing to give up a bachelor pad and bachelor lifestyle for you then, he is very serious about staying with you. If he is giving up a job, a former life with a previous wife or living with his children for you then that is a very serious statement about his desire to commit to you permanently.
3. He pampers you
Sure, being sweet can mean that he’s just a generally sweet guy. However, keep in mind that guys don’t pamper women whom they have no interest in being with. They can be pretty obvious in their ability to see the long term validity in treating their women like queens. If he makes the effort to make you happy and pamper the heck out of you, he definitely wants to keep you in his life.
4. He uses the word “we”
When a man peppers his sentences with ‘we’ instead of ‘me’, he already thinks of the two of you as a team. Whether it is referring to the present or far into the future, it’s always a good sign when he refers to you and him as a single entity. It means that he see himself going through life not as a swinging bachelor, but as your partner.
5. He values your opinion
When a man starts to look at you as his future wife, your opinion will mean everything to him. Now that he can see a future with you, he’s not going to make any life-changing decisions without running them by you first. He may even run the smallest issues by you first just to get your take on things. It doesn’t mean that he can’t take control of his own life and figure things out on his own; it simply means he values what you have to say, and he wants to make sure that any decisions that can alter his future are met with your approval first.
6. His family loves you
Do not underestimate the importance of being loved by his family, especially if he is close to them. Their opinions matter, and if they love you, there is a higher chance that he will want to make you a part of the family. What the family thinks matters to a man. So if you got off on a bad start with them, go make amends now.
7. He shows you plenty of physical affection
He loves to hold your hand, hugs you and gives you back rubs – if needed. Attention is a kind of emotional currency and he is investing in your future by making sure that you feel loved enough to stay with him always. His logic is that if you feel good you won’t leave!
8. He still tries to surprise you
No one can be on romantic point all the time, but he’s at least trying to keep things interesting. He makes a point to bring home flowers or plan a date night because it’s important to him that you don’t settle into a groove.
9. He trusts you completely
Whether it’s with his ATM card or with is heart, once a man fully trusts you, it is a clear indication that he sees himself potentially creating a future with you. Moreover, once he takes your thoughts and opinions seriously and confides in you no matter how embarrassing the problem, you can be sure that he values you being in his life and fully trusts that you will take care of him in every sense.
