About a week back, I was whining over Skype to N about how my life is all routine, and how I crave drama. I even suggested I take up smoking, start drinking or take bike riding lessons. We have been together for more than five years, and he knew it is just a “phase”, and that I will get over it eventually. He didn’t put his foot down or negate any of my self-destructive thoughts; just ‘hmm’ through the conversation. Smart, eh?

Women, by nature, are victims of habit. We like drama. We need to stir up a hornet’s nest every now and then. We invite trouble, and then wish we hadn’t been so foolish; to the extent, sometimes I am upset because N and I aren’t fighting. I like a little fight here and there, and love the making up sessions that follows. You do too, right?

But if there is anything you must know about my N, it is that he is a simple, straight-forward guy. He doesn’t believe is scheming nor allows his actions to be guided by hidden agendas. If he likes something, he will say it. If not, he will change the subject. He is one of a kind (touchwood), and a keeper.

As if the universe was trying to say amen, I came across the following article on Elite Daily, listing 11 reason why you should marry the simple, uncomplicated guy. If you aren’t sure whether to hold on tight to your uncomplicated man or move on to a bad guy, I suggest you continue reading:

  1. He has no hidden agenda.

His intentions are always pure. When he tells you something, you know he says what he really means. He’s an open book.

A simple guy will never find the need to lie to you. He’s an honest, trustworthy person who values his integrity and his honor. You don’t have to question him because he’d never give you a reason to.

  1. He’ll never break your heart.

He’s a sweet, genuine guy. He’d never play you, and he’d never hurt you. He makes you feel safe.

  1. He gladly lets you take the spotlight.

He doesn’t mind being the wind beneath your wings. In fact, he enjoys it.

When you’re the life of the party, he’s your biggest supporter. He admires you and he’s proud of you.

  1. He’s easy-going.

He’s just a go-with-the-flow kind of a guy. He’ll never cause drama just because he’s bored. He doesn’t pick fights just to shake things up, either. He’s chill.

He isn’t hard to please.

  1. He just wants to make you happy.

When it comes to your relationship, his ultimate goal is to make you as happy as possible. He’ll do whatever it takes to make your relationship as strong as he can.

He’ll always treat you right because there isn’t a selfish bone in his body.

  1. He loves to dote on you.

He loves your independent spirit, but he also likes to do little things to make you smile.

He’s the kind of guy who will surprise you with flowers and a Vita Coco Coconut Water and rub your feet after you nailed your first-ever 10K race.

He wants you to know how much be adores and admires you. He finds pleasure in doing things for you.

  1. He thinks you’re beautiful even when you don’t feel beautiful.

Even on the days you feel your worst, he still thinks you’re the most beautiful woman he’s ever laid eyes on.

When you wake up in the morning, face smudged from last night’s makeup, he just wants to kiss you.

He knows he’s a lucky man.

  1. He’s your best friend.

He values your companionship above all else. He sees you as a treasured equal. The two of you can talk about anything and share everything.

You make the most meaningful memories together.

  1. He’s the kind of guy your dad would approve of.

He is the kind of man your father has always pictured for you. He’s stable, committed, and he’s good to you.

Sure, no one will ever really be good enough for his little girl, but your sweet, simple guy is about as close as it gets.

  1. He grounds you.

He’s stable and logical. He brings you back down to earth when you get too lost inside your head.

He’s perfect for you because he helps you sort through every problem with gentle ease.

  1. He’s supportive of your dreams.

You can always count on him to be your biggest supporter. He is the person who will cheer you on and always make you feel like you can do anything.

The two of you together are a true force to be reckoned with.

Like Gigi Engle said, he is essentially a unicorn, so never let him go!
