“The path of a good woman is indeed strewn with flowers; but they rise behind her steps, not before them.” – John Ruskin
Men, it’s time to get a little serious. Finding someone to spend your life with is just as important to men as it is to women.

That’s why it’s extremely important never to ignore these signs of a good woman. Make your life easier and commit these signs to memory.
Here Are 8 Traits Of A Good Woman To Never Ignore
Patience isn’t considered a virtue for nothing! “A patient woman can do a lot to ensure that you are stable of mind and that you are making the right decisions for yourself, and then the people who are in your orbit,” says business consultant Franklin Madison on The Good Men Project.
A good woman is patient, and doesn’t insist on instant gratification. Not everyone has the ability to be patient, so you definitely want to keep an eye out for the women who are able to exercise restraint in all walks of life. Patience really is a virtue, and is definitely a sign of a good woman.
Good women won’t want to bring you down. One of the major signs of a good woman is that she’s encouraging. No matter what your life goals are, she’s always going to stand by your side and be your greatest cheerleader. You’ll never have to feel worried, because she will always be standing by your side. When you’re feeling down, she’ll be there to pick you up whenever you need it, no questions asked.
Loyalty can be hard to come by in this day and age. That is why loyalty is the sign of a good woman. Her loyalty to you means that you won’t ever find out that she’s talking about you behind your back, or doing anything to hurt you. Even when you’re in the wrong, she will make sure that she has your back. You can always count on her to be there when you need it, no matter what.
“Because she chooses what she wants out of life and she holds on to it when she gets it. When you are what she wants, she will give you her everything,” says author James Michael Sama.
Let’s face it, we all say things we don’t mean. We all make mistakes. A good woman is willing to forgive your mistakes and work through them. When you find a good woman, you will know that you can be human and make mistakes. A good woman won’t just say she forgives you while still holding it over your head. She will forgive you, wholly and completely, and be ready to move on and grow.
5. No jealousy
Good women don’t worry about your ex-girlfriends or try to figure out who you’re hanging out with. Good women, “do not get jealous because they are secure enough in themselves to know what (and who) is worth their time, or what/who isn’t,” adds Sama.
When you find a good woman, you’ll know it by the trust she puts in you. She embraces your friends and realizes that you’re a whole human being outside of the relationship. She isn’t jealous of your family, your ex’s, or your friends. You won’t ever have to deal with the green-eyed monster when you’re with her.
The mark of a good woman is her ability to feel what you’re feeling. Empathy is a major sign of a good woman. While she can’t read your mind, she can put herself in your shoes and empathize with the way you feel. She cares about you deeply, as well as the other people in her life. When you’re hurting, she doesn’t stop to ask why. She feels it and wants to help you.
Being able to find humor during the good times and the bad is a skill that not everyone has. Meet Mindful states, “A woman who expresses her comedic sensibility with wit shows both her intelligence and her penchant for laughter; and laughter, let’s note, is both a bonding tool in smooth times and a healing tool in rough times of any relationship.”
You will know that you’ve found a good woman when she is able to make you smile even when things are going rough. To you, she is like a slice of sunshine on a cloudy day and she never fails to warm you up.
The most important thing about a good woman is that she’s fun, and that you have fun with her. It doesn’t matter if all you do is hang out at the house and watch television. “The best relationships are between romantic partners who are first and foremost best friends,” says Dr. Gary Lewandowski.
When you’re with her, you’re always feeling like you’re having a good time because she makes it fun. You’re not afraid to try new things as long as she is at your side, making you feel good.
Good women aren’t hard to come by, especially when you know what you’re looking for. Everyone deserves to have someone to love in their life, especially someone who is wholly and empathetically good. Men, keep an eye out for a woman who shows all the signs of being a truly good woman.
