Of course, failing some of these tests should not totally rule him out as he might just be a really good guy with just some few rough edges.
It needs to be added at this juncture that these tests need to be subtly carried out; more like mentally ticking off what is right and what is not.
So, let’s check out what the five tests are:
1. The flirt test
This one is quite important, by the way.
You should be wary of a man whose flirtations with other women border on absurd and plain thirst "thirsty men". [Thirsty is a modern/urban term which means “a form of lust or want of members of the opposite sex,” according to Urban Dictionary online]
2. The folks test
Better to meet his parents as reasonably early as possible. Instead of waiting till you’ve become overly enchanted and connected with each other before making that [dreaded] meeting.
What if his mother doesn’t like you? You know, something about all those mother-in-law stories you’ve heard over the years.
3. The friends test
Of course you want to put a man through this test because you want to be sure he has friends, or if he’s just a loner.
If he does have friends, you want to know what kind of people they are, what they do, what they find funny.
And lastly, because by meeting his friends, you can tell a lot about a guy. [That ‘female intuition’ thing is not totally a myth, you know]
4. The home inspection
Simply because you must be aware of how a man lives. Plus you really do not know a man until you see how he lives.
5. The kid test
Better be quick to ask if he has kids hidden somewhere. Better be inquisitive than sorry, ladies.
I mean, you get to decide for yourself if you want to be sure of what you are getting into, or wait till you get into it first before unboxing the package.
As always, the final decision is yours.
