14 Signs You Definitely Won The Girlfriend Lottery

Sometimes someone comes into your life and you don’t know how you ever lived without that person.

All the past relationships not working out suddenly make complete sense. For the first time, you can truly see the rest of your life with that person – it’s a special feeling.

Won the girlfriend lottery? – here are 14 signs you have.

14. She makes you laugh.

Not a giggle. I’m talking crying, about to pass out, laughing.

13. She let’s you be you.

She doesn’t try to change who you are, she loves you for it. Aside from her telling you “burn that shirt” she lets your individuality speak – it’s a beautiful thing.

12. You’re mentally connected, even when not by each other.

This one is weird. Sorta the intangible thing. When you think to yourself, “man, I would love for her to text me right now” you get a “I miss you” text 30 sec later. You’re connected in a way that almost borders some sort of psychic stuff.

11. She motivates you.

She doesn’t even need to be vocal about it. Naturally, she brings out the fight in you. You no longer are fighting for just yourself, you now see the future as you and her as a team, and will do anything to make it as special as possible.

10. She’s full of surprises.

She knows just when to lay one of these one you, and it can turn your whole week around for the better.

9. She cares about your family.

So huge. Also a bonus if her family is great (which it is).

8. She can let loose, and be serious.

Serious at the right time, and pickleback at the right time – my perfect girl.

7. She’s motivated.

She knows what she wants and she’s gonna make it happen.

6. She reminds you how much she loves you.

Sometimes you just need to hear it and she knows just when to say it.

5. She’s not afraid to put you in your place.

If you’re an ass, she’ll let you know. And if she is, she’ll apologize.

4. She plans things well.

As guys, we suck at this often and she’s always good about reminding you. Very helpful. Very, very, helpful.

3. She always makes time for you.

It doesn’t matter how busy we get, she’s always looking to see how we can spend more time together. Have a fun date. A cool dinner. Drinks. Whatever. It really doesn’t matter what it is, as long as you two are together.

2. She makes you a better person.

Whether it’s teaching you something or offering a different perspective, she’s always there to bring out the best you. This is rare, and I can’t thank her enough for this.

1. She makes you look at life in a different way.

Maybe the most important thing for me is this. Children, growing old together, being a team. All the stuff you hear about, but never were sure of suddenly are so real. Everything you could of ever dreamed of, is right there with her and you can’t wait to start the rest of your lives together. She’ll do anything for you, and you would do the same. It’s a special, special thing.

Who am I kidding? I could keep going with this list. If you’re lucky enough to find the girl of your dreams, don’t take it for granted.
