There are two kinds of guys in the world – keepers and users. Distinguishing the two is not always as easy as it seems, especially early in the relationship. Knowing the signs to look is the best way to avoid wasting your time on the users of the world.
#1. He Can Cook
Everyone loves a man who can cook. If your boyfriend knows his way around the kitchen, he is definitely a keeper. He is even more of a keeper if he likes to go to the grocery store as well.
#2. He Gives You Flowers Just Because
If you come home to roses when it is not Valentine’s Day or your birthday, you know you have a good one. Most guys can’t remember to send flowers when the ads are screaming at them and Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. If your boyfriend is romantic enough to send flowers just because, he may be worth holding on to.
#3. He Takes an Interest in What You Do
If your boyfriend asks about your job and actually listens to what you have to say, he may be a keeper. Many guys would be hard pressed to even explain what their girlfriends do for a living. A man who takes an active interest is definitely a prize.
#4. Your Parents Like Him
Bringing a new guy home to meet mom and dad is always a crapshoot. Chances are your parents have been less than enamored with a past boyfriend or two. If your parents love your boyfriend as much as you do, you might want to keep him around.
#5. You Like His Friends
