Many girls have had guys in their lives that were complicated and not ready for a relationship. And as we all know, we often want what we can’t have. When we have people in our lives who are always there for us, we tend to take them for granted. On the other hand, when a guy comes along who seems unsure how he feels about you, you tend to put up a fight to make it work.

This clearly isn’t logical, but it happens throughout our daily lives. We call this “unrequited love” and a lot of people suffer from it. Just listen to all the love songs that are written about it! I used to listen to these songs when my heart got broken and when I was disappointed by love. I don’t know why, but the songs made me feel better. I suppose every person feels better when they hear the truth.

It might be OK to wait for someone when you are still young, but when you’re older, you don’t have time for such games anymore. You need a serious person who knows exactly what they want from their partner.

If you meet a guy but you aren’t quite sure whether he is worth the wait, here are some signs you can look out for.

1. He gets in touch with you as often as he can

A guy who really cares about you will find 2 minutes out of his busy day to say hello. If he makes up some stupid excuse for why he didn’t call you, then you should just turn around and leave. A guy who loves you will always remind you of his feelings – he won’t let you forget about it even for a second. I know sometimes it can be difficult to call someone or be online all the time, but a sweet message wishing you good morning or good night can be enough.

2. He shows up on time

I don’t know about you, but I really hate it when people are late. If your guy is always late, he’s not respecting your time and will keep on behaving this way if you just forgive him. If he constantly shows up late at the beginning of your relationship, just imagine how late he will be if the two of you get married!

3. He expresses his feelings

If your man isn’t shy to admit he loves you, congrats! He is a real keeper. A guy who truly loves his girlfriend will always be honest and tell her how he feels. If he has the courage to express his love publicly, you can be sure he’s worth it. You know it is very difficult for boys to express their feelings and emotions, so be grateful if yours is able to do so.

4. He pays attention to the little things

If he knows that one movie you could watch over and over again without getting bored, or the only food you’d need if you were stranded on a desert island, he is truly in love with you. If he wasn’t interested in you, he wouldn’t bother trying hard to remember exactly what things you like. A guy who pays attention to such details really cares for you, and you can be pretty sure that you will spend the rest of your life together!

5. He is making an effort

If he doesn’t mind doing all the chasing, consider yourself lucky. It means he is head over heels in love with you and he is well worth the wait! Guys like this are so sweet and they make us feel very special. And trust me, that’s the best feeling ever!

6. He is relaxed around you

Not all guys can be relaxed around their girlfriends, especially at the beginning of a relationship. If he is totally relaxed and talks about everything in front of you, this is a good sign. He thinks you are his soulmate and doesn’t have any problem telling you his deepest secrets. You’re more than just his lover – you’re his best friend. This one is definitely a keeper!


My dear ladies, these are some of the most common signs that your guy is worth waiting for. Make an effort regarding every relationship, but take care of yourself as well. Don’t let anyone make a fool out of you, and make sure to have some personal rules before going into a relationship.

I hope you will find your Mr. Right who will take care of you and treat you like you’re the apple of his eye. I know he will soon come knocking on your door!
