Choosing your forever partner isn't just about how you get along with him - you also consider what kind of dad he'll be for your future children. If he does these 10 things, you can be sure that he's not only going to be a great father, he's going to be the best dad ever.
1. He's great with other people's kids
Whether it's his nieces and nephews or your own younger siblings, the way he interacts with other people's children is a good sign of how he'll act with his own in the future. When he comforts his crying niece or wrestles with your brothers, you know he'll be doing the same loving things in the future with your kids.
A man who puts his wife first knows how to order his priorities. Once the two of you start having kids, you know they'll also be on the top of his priority list.
3. He points out cute babies in public
When you're at the grocery story and he fawns over the adorable baby in front of you in line, you know you've snagged a great future dad. You can already tell he'll adore your future kiddos.
4. He isn't afraid to hug it out
If your man is comfortable with hugging it out and giving verbal praise, he'll be able to give your kids the affection they need.
5. He's patient
Patience is perhaps the greatest virtue a parent can have, because your kids will put it to the test almost every moment of the day (and night). If he keeps his patience with you when you're having a rough day, he'll most likely keep his patience when the kids are bouncing off the walls.
6. He can go with the flow
Life with kids doesn't follow a rigid schedule. If he's able to bend the rules occasionally now, he'll be a great dad who'll make breakfast for dinner and let them stay up late reading their new comic book. Of course, he'll help you enforce family rules too, but he'll also focus on making lasting memories for your kids.
7. He's playful
One of the best playmates a kid can have is their dad. If he's playful with you now, he'll be down on all fours playing horse for your delighted child cowboy one day.
