How/when do you know you are serious about someone and that it's going somewhere? Or how would you know it's getting nowhere?
Most Helpful Guy
The way I see it, there are some traits that, in combination are rare, and when they present themselves, you have a very special girl.
The thing about it, all women seem to think they exhibit these traits but instead of kidding themselves, they should really think about them as I speak for all guys and basically they all feel the way I do.
1. Guys will look for signs that the girl has the capability to be trusted. Most people think they are trustworthy but trust is earned and when girls shy away from things because it's a rough patch in their life, if they don't work through problems or cut relationships off, if they change their goals or don't see things through or flakey with plans, if they dumped their ex for another guy, these are all traits that show they likely would not make a trustworthy girlfriend
2. Selflessness: before electric doors in cars, the test was you were, as a man, to open the door for the girl and as you went into the drivers side door, if the girl unlocked the drivers side door as you walked around it, she was a keeper. That test is no longer available but don't think guys aren't evaluating the test's modern equaivelent tears showing the capability of being selfless and caring... the cell phone isn't helping
3. Admiration/Respect and taking an interest in you.
If a girl is taking an interest in a genuine way, because they are into you, not quizzing or interrogating you like it's some qualification test or nagging, you are a little young for this but girls tend to exhibit this trait and it takes all the fun away and it makes them seem like a pain in the ass and hard to please... also, just showing a 50/50 relationship is unlikely
3. Passion: a girl who has taken an interest in something she devotes herself to. This does not mean traveling as that is not a sacrifice, whether it's botany or fashion, it is very attractive and she will be admired and respected
4. Fun: self explanatory
Now, whether girls know it or not, guys know, between 1-4% of girls can claim all do these traits and if they do, they have been asked for marriage already0
