“Actions speak louder than words.”
When you are getting to know someone, give yourself time to observe actions. If the actions line up with the words, then the words can be believed. Here are 8 behaviors to look for early on in a relationship. If the person that you've seen these signs consistently in someone who you are dating, he or she might be a keeper!
You are made a priority over time. He/she has time for you in his/her life and routinely puts other things aside to spend time with you.
Sex is not always on the agenda. Sometimes they just want to be around you. You really are that special.
You have a title. “This is my woman.” This is my boyfriend.”
They have introduced you to the significant people in their life such as parents, children and friends.
They want to be seen out with you. They want others to see the connection.
They open up over time and give you real information about themselves. What was their childhood like? What do they think about their job? What are their interests?
They put forth effort to build you up in your own eyes and the eyes of others.
They’re bummed when you change plans and they can’t see you. Watch out for jealous or possessive behaviors on this one!
If it feels a little too fast, it probably is. That’s no reason to run, but it’s a great reason to slow it down. Remember, when you pay a lot of attention to what’s being said and watch actions just as closely - you can prevent heartbreak. Remember… actions speak louder than words.
