11 Ways To Know You've Met A Good Guy

11 Ways To Know You've Met A Good Guy


In today's dating culture, it's extremely difficult to tell if you've met a good guy or just another "one night stand". From the first time you meet, you are unconsciously or even consciously looking for these signs.

1. He asks about your interests.

You interest him. He wants to learn as much about you as possible, and not in that creepy stalker way, but in the "you really keep my attention with your words" way. He asks a lot of questions about your life and he continues the conversation by giving details from his life, too.

2. He wants to meet your family and friends.

He knows how much these people mean to you. He knows that if he wants to eventually make something real with you, these people are going to be determining factors if he stays around or not. None of us ever want to choose between our family/friends or a significant other, and he makes sure this will never have to happen.

3. He asks about your day.

No matter if your day is good or bad, he wants to know about it. If something is upsetting you, he wants to know what he can do to help. If something is going great for you, he's there as an extra vote of confidence.

4. He makes plans that you can do together.

He's not trying to leave you behind. He always has something up his sleeve that you would enjoy doing, or that would be different and exciting for you to try. He isn't one of those guys who asks "what do you want to do" but rather "I have this planned for us".

5. He isn't needy.

If you're having a busy day, he will understand that and wait for you to get back to him. Chances are, he's a busy guy too and he expects the same from you. He won't blow up your phone with angry texts, rather, he will fill it with "I miss you" and "I'll be here when you get back".

6. He always puts you first.

He lets you order food first at the restaurant. He holds doors open for you. He asks about your plans before he gives suggestion. He makes you feel like you're the number one priority.

7. He responds in a timely manner.

You won't be waiting around for hours for a text back from him. He makes sure that you know that you're important enough to get a "hey, I can't talk right now" instead of ignored messages.

8. He respects you and your body.

He doesn't push you to limits that you don't feel comfortable with. He makes sure to always ask for permission first.

9. He has a good sense of humor.

Or maybe just your sense of humor. Laughing together is the perfect way to start a happy relationship. If you are together and all you're doing is laughing at him and smiling his way, you both know he's doing something right.

10. He surprises you.

This doesn't have to be with gifts either. He surprises you with a phone call during the day, a note that tells you what you mean to him, or even just a random "I miss you" text message.

11. He says "Good morning" and "Good night".

These two things are usually looked over, but they mean that you're the first thing he thinks about when he wakes up and the last night thinks about before he falls asleep.

3 Reasons Why Step Dads Are Super Dads


I often hear a lot of people complaining about their step-parents and wondering why they think that they have any authority over them. Although I know that everyone has different situations, I will be the first to admit that I am beyond blessed to have a step dad. Yep, I said it. My life wouldn't be the same that it is not without him in it. Let me tell you why I think step dads are the greatest things since sliced bread.

1. They will do anything for you, literally.

My stepdad has done any and every thing for me. From when I was little until now. He was and still is my go-to. If I was hungry, he would get me food. If something was broken, he would fix it. If I wanted something, he would normally always find a way to get it. He didn't spoil me (just sometimes), but he would make sure that I was always taken care of.

2. Life lessons.

Yup, the tough one. My stepdad has taught me things that I would have never figured out on my own. He has stood beside me through every mistake. He has been there to pick me up when I am down. My stepdad is like the book of knowledge: crazy hormonal teenage edition. Boy problems? He would probably make me feel better. He just always seemed to know what to say. I think that the most important lesson that I have learned from my stepdad is: to never give up. My stepdad has been through three cycles of leukemia. He is now in remission, yay!! But, I never heard him complain. I never heard him worry and I never saw him feeling sorry for himself. Through you, I found strength.

3. He loved me as his own.

The big one, the one that may seem impossible to some step parents. My stepdad is not actually my stepdad, but rather my dad. I will never have enough words to explain how grateful I am for this man, which is why I am attempting to write this right now. It takes a special kind of human to love another as if they are their own. There had never been times where I didn't think that my dad wouldn't be there for me. It was like I always knew he would be. He introduces me as his daughter, and he is my dad. I wouldn't have it any other way. You were able to show me what family is.

So, dad... thanks. Thanks for being you. Thanks for being awesome. Thanks for being strong. Thanks for loving me. Thanks for loving my mom. Thanks for giving me a wonderful little sister. Thanks for being someone that I can count on. Thanks for being my dad.

I love you!

A Beginner's Guide to Milwaukee Sports

Part I: The Bucks


Being a college student in Milwaukee has its perks, especially for sports fans. Now, while some may have brought their hometown teams to college, others (myself included) may have warmed up to the Cream City teams without knowing much about them. If this is the case for you, then these pointers can help you start enjoying Milwaukee basketball without looking and sounding like a bandwagon fan.

Quick History


Here are some facts about the Bucks that can make you feel more knowledgeable about the franchise:

- They have only won one championship (back in 1971) and have lost one NBA Finals series (1974) (Land of Basketball)

- They have only had one* MVP-caliber player in Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (#33) during the 1971, 1972, and 1974 seasons (Land of Basketball)

- Other Notable Players Include: Oscar Robertson (#1), Sidney Moncrief (#4), Jon McGlocklin (#14) and Ray Allen (#34) (Land of Basketball)

*Giannis Antetokounmpo may win the MVP award this year

Gear Up


This one is a bit of a no-brainer. Wearing team's colors or spirit wear is a must, especially if you're going to a game. Most items like hats and t-shirts are perfectly acceptable, and these are great if you're not trying to break the bank. Buying your gear from a sporting goods store will usually be cheaper than buying them from the team store (the main one of which is located in Fiserv Forum). Most online stores like NBA.com, Fanatics, Fansedge, and sometimes even the team's online store will have sales on sports gear, so getting a good deal on team wear is always a plus!

A Word of Caution: Jerseys

All three of these players are not part of the 2018-2019 roster and #77 and #3 have been reused by current players Ersan Ilyasova (#77) and George Hill (#3)


If you're willing to go the extra mile, buying a jersey can really get you into locked in and pumped for the live action. However, it should be kept in mind that official Nike NBA jerseys range from $110-$250, so they definitely are an investment. While there are other options available like the FastBreak jerseys by Fanatics, they are a simpler (still official) knockoff of the Nike jerseys. Also; beware buying sale jerseys. There are usually three reasons why jerseys are ever on sale (aside from a storewide sale): a player is injured, a player doesn't play much and is about to be traded, or a player has been traded. While there is nothing wrong with having the jersey of a player who went on to another team (like Kareem and Allen), you are not exactly going to get brownie points for wearing a Jabari Parker or a Thon Maker jersey anytime soon.

Know The Current Squad
