Love, Zodiac

He's a keeper!

When you’re dating someone, it can be hard to know if they’re just trying to win you over and showing you what they think you’ll like, or if they’re being genuine. Is that good guy as fantastic as he seems or is he faking it?

We tend to put on our best, most positive selves forward when wanting to make not only a good first impression but a lasting enough impression to get what we want from the person, whether it’s sex or a relationship.

The theory being, first seal the deal, then you can be your true disgusting self.

However, no matter how you may try to hide it, your real self always comes out, and if one is attentive, there’s a lot we can learn about each other from our behavior and really listening to what people say.

If you want to find out if that guy you like is a decent human being, look for the signs he's a good guy. You just need to pay attention because he’s showing you who he really is all the time.

Does he play mind games with you or have you noticed him trying to manipulate you? Those are what a narcissist does, not a good guy. When he talks to you, does it feel as if it’s from his heart or something that he thinks you want to hear? Players use their words to turn your focus away from getting to know the real them to buy the facade they present.

If you feel that you can’t be who you really are, then it’s probably because he’s not being real with you. No one wants to feel uncomfortable or that they can’t trust being 100 percent with someone.

Here are some signs he's a good guy at his core, based on his zodiac sign

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

He's just as kind and polite to strangers as he is to you. It doesn't matter if it's someone sitting next to you in a concert or the wait staff, he treats everyone nicely. This shows a lot about how they are as a person and how they were brought up. He doesn't think he's superior to someone just because they have a service industry job; he treats people as he likes to be treated.

He looks people in the eye. He doesn't avoid eye contact because he doesn't have anything to hide. He's honest and direct without being a jerk. He's able to stand his ground without being intimidating or overly dominate. When he makes eye contact it shows that he has good self-esteem and that he's interested in what you have to say.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

He doesn't bad-mouth people. When he talks about a mistake one of his co-workers did or something about his ex, he doesn't do it in a mean or nasty way. You don't have to fear that when he's not around you, he's verbally throwing you under the bus. When someone refrains from talking smack about people, it shows that they have character and self-control. He takes responsibility for his part in what went wrong.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

He's able to turn something negative into a positive. If he makes plans and then nothing goes right, he doesn't have a meltdown. Instead of making things worse with anger and outbursts, he makes the best of a bad situation. If things are going horribly wrong but you use some creativity, a little patience, and a new perspective, it can be turned around. You end up with a funny story and you miss that uncomfortable feeling you get when someone is having a temper tantrum.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

He has a plan for the future but it's not set in stone. He's ambitious but he's not going to walk over other people and their feelings to get what he wants. He has vision and confidence enough to know the steps he must take. He's not floundering around, not knowing where he's going, and he's not entitled. He knows he must work to achieve his dreams.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

He treats you and other people with respect. This seems obvious but you might be surprised how many people think it's okay not to treat others with respect. He doesn't make you do anything that you're not ready to do and he respects you when you tell him "no." He takes what you want into consideration and honors your wishes.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

He not only has friends, he has good relationships with them. Our friends say a lot about us, as do the friendships that we have with them. If someone cherishes their friends and treats them well, it's a good indication that they'll do the same with their partner. Charles Darwin said it best when he said, "A man's friendships are one of the best measures of his worth."

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

He wants to be able to share with you so it's not out of the ordinary that he would take up your hobbies and interests. If you're a major athlete but it's not a good sport for him, he's your number one supporter. He doesn't demand that you give up everything you love for him; he's willing to incorporate the things that are import to you into his own life.

He's sweet to your pets. He may not be a huge animal lover now, but he'll probably end up being one. He will bring treats and toys for your dog or cat and he doesn't freak out when they want attention. He knows that you love them and that makes him love them, too.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

He talks about his family — not enough that you're sick of hearing about how perfect they are but enough that you know they're important to him. He's not scared to bring up his family which indicates you'll probably at least get to meet them, if not more.

He makes you feel like you can relax and just be yourself. It's exhausting to feel as if you need to be something you're not and that if you make a wrong move, they won't like you. He's accepting and so real, you know you don't have to fake it either.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

He's compassionate and doesn't just shut you down when you're feeling all the feels. He'd never accuse you of being on your period just because you're being emotional; he listens and lets you vent. If you ask for it, he's happy to advise or help in any way that he can.
