Over at Mel Magazine, they had an article called, “Let’s Talk About The ‘Green Flags’ That Actually Make A Dude Worth Dating.” It wasn’t the greatest article in the world (For example, one of only 9 positives she came with is “he is in therapy….” which is bizarre), but the concept is gold.
So, why not steal the concept and apply it to women? After all, it’s easy to obsess about red flags to look out for, but guys don’t spend as much time talking about the traits that make a woman particularly appealing. Part of that is because so many modern women pitch a fit any time someone notes it’s okay for men to have basic standards. On the other hand, men recognize that good traits like being beautiful and loving to cook aren’t going to make up for heavy baggage or bad traits like screaming fits or being a hoarder. Along similar lines, there are some really amazing women out there that may not check every box on this list.
Still, it’s worth talking about what traits stand out in a woman not just because it lets men know what to look for, but because it’s also good for women to know what men like. Now, without further adieu, here are 18 green flags that make a woman worth dating. The more of these she brings to the table, the better catch that she is…
1) She’s girly and feminine.
