He Makes Me Smile: 10 Signs of a Good Relationship

Posted on

The giggle the thought of him evokes, or the grin that comes up on your face should be great indicators. Here’s how you know you’re in a good relationship.

The man of my dreams is going to be the kind of guy who makes me smile all the time. I love to be happy, I want to be happy, and I want someone who loves life and love just as much as I do! Because of that, I’ve imagined all the possible scenarios and reasons my perfect guy would always bring a smile to my face.

Since I’m not with a perfect guy, then I’ll keep imagining him until I find him. However, if you’re with a guy you really care about, then here are all the things he should be doing to make you smile when you’re thinking about him.

1. He knows how to cheer me up

My perfect guy knows how to cheer me up. It doesn’t matter how stressful my day has been, it doesn’t matter if I’m in the middle of my monthly female crazy hormones, it doesn’t even matter if I’m angry at HIM at the moment, he always knows how to cheer me up. Knowing that is why he makes me smile.

2. He’s always there when I’m sick

My perfect guy makes me smile because he’s willing to be there and make me soup when I’m sick. He doesn’t run away at the idea of a stuffy nose or seeing me in my pajamas, he’s right there by my side, making sure I’m comfortable and giving me Tylenol and hot tea. He makes me smile because he takes care of me.

3. He’s not afraid to make an idiot of himself

My ideal man can’t be stuck up. If he makes an idiot out of himself, he laughs it off and goes on.

He’s not all about appearances and keeping up with the neighbors, he’s about being himself, which means sometimes he makes mistakes or does something ridiculously goofy. I like that.

4. He can beat me to the punchline

Any guy of mine who gets my sense of humor is guaranteed to make me smile, in fact, if he can finish my jokes for me (or the other way around), then I’d say we’ve got a very good relationship. Playful banter is very important and having a fun and happy relationship means having the same sense of humor.

5. He brings me take-out

My guy brings me take-out without my having to ask for it. He knows I don’t enjoy cooking and he knows I’ve had a long day at work, so he thinks about me and picks up some Chinese food for us for dinner. That would really make me smile.

6. Even when he’s gone, he texts me

I don’t need to know what he’s doing every second of the day, and I trust him, but my perfect guy would still make me smile by texting me when he’s out with the guys and letting me know he’s thinking about me. It’s important to let someone know they’re on your mind, especially when they’re out without you. Trust is the most beautiful thing in the world, but gentle reminders of affection are just as beautiful.

7. He knows how I take my coffee

The right guy would remember the little things about me. He would remember that I like plain coffee with a little extra whole milk; he would remember that I’m allergic to Bleu Cheese and never order it. He would remember that my favorite flowers are sunflowers.

The perfect guy for me could make me smile because he would pay attention to the little details about me. It’s the little quirks that really make us who we are.

8. He’s nice to others

My perfect guy is genuinely nice to others. Ladies, you have no idea how many guys I’ve gone out with who are just not nice human beings. They’re not nice to other people, they aren’t conscientious of what others are feeling, and they’re (quite bluntly) rude. My perfect man makes me smile because he is a genuinely nice guy to other people. That’s an important quality to me.

9. He sometimes watches me when he doesn’t think I’m looking

My guy would make me smile because he would watch me when he doesn’t think I’m looking. That’s right, sometimes when I’m busy working or trying to read, I’ll look over quickly and see him smiling at me. That would mean I still fascinate him. That would mean I still interest him and that I’m still important to him. That kind of love is the kind of love that makes a woman smile.

10. He puts me first

My ideal guy would put me first. Not just before the guys, and not just before his job, but he would genuinely put my feelings into consideration before he would make an important decision. He would feel that my opinions are valid and he would trust me. He would put me first and, of course, I would put him first as well. Even the thought of that makes me smile.

Relationships don’t have to be complicated. It’s easy to make someone smile, it actually takes a lot of thought and effort to make someone hurt. Why would you want to be with someone who doesn’t make you smile? This is, of course, a give and take situation. You should also be putting in the effort to make your guy smile. After all, if you’ve found a great guy who makes you happy, don’t you want to make him happy too?

Is your relationship in any way like the perfect one I just described? If so, share some advice with the rest of us, so we could learn how to maintain one ourselves. I’m expecting your input in the comments below
