34 Things To Do With Your Boyfriend To Test Whether He’s The One

We all have our own ‘deal breakers’ and there are some things you need to know about your partner before you say ‘I Do’. Here are 34 things you must experience with your other half to make sure he’s the one.

1. Requesting your partner purchase a gift for a wedding or birthday – This tests his ability and consideration.

2. Run an hour late for something – This tests his patience.

3. Attend a dress up party with your partner- This tests his fun-loving nature.

4. Request my partner pick-up a friend of yours who’s in trouble at an inconvenient time – This tests his loyalty.

5. Introduce your partner to ALL of your friends – This tests his ability to impress and converse.

6. Take a holiday with your partner (without other family or friends) – This tests his patience, his ability to interact with strangers and how he likes to spend his time away- restaurants, bars, hotels etc.
