6 signs he's ready to be a father

And six signs he's not.

Your ovaries won't wait forever you know!

I repeat, if you're prepared for it.

While it's that kind of talk you would expect to have your man running off the hills, it's a pretty important one if you want to score in parenthood.

Let's be honest, no one wants a deadbeat.

Can you tick some of these off your man's quality card? If so, then you've got yourself a really cool daddy.

Daddy: He sees kids everywhere. He starts pointing out cute babies with their parents to you at the grocery store, the park, and the coffee shop.

Deadbeat: When you swoon over a pair of identical newborns, he doesn't even notice because he's distracted cars or some babe's cleavage, not necessarily in that order.

Daddy: When you're sick, he has no problem with bringing you soup, rubbing your back at night while you cough miserably or even helping clean up after an unfortunate bout of food poisoning.

Deadbeat: Somehow work becomes extra busy for him when you start coughing and as much as it sucks, you're not getting any lovin' that night baby girl.

Daddy: When you got a new pet, he took on at least half the responsibility of feeding, walking, and vet visits without complaining. Pets are the new babies after all.

Deadbeat: If you go on a trip without him, you can pretty much guarantee the cat's litter box will be filthy and disgusting when you get home, and you have to text him every day to remind him to feed her.

Daddy: He actually holds and plays with his friends' kids or his nieces and nephews, heck, they even have their own inside laughing hysterically when they giggle (and making your ovaries ache).

Deadbeat: He awkwardly pats them on the head and says stiffly, "What a lovely little person" while slowly backing away. He doesn't put down his beer during this entire exchange.

Daddy: He cuts back on spending in order to save up for a house with some space or a safer car.

Deadbeat: His savings account has nothing in it after he basically turned your living room into a movie theater with that giant flat screen and way too loud sound system.

Daddy: He forwards you a picture of his cousin's new baby, with all the birth stats, a smiley face, and an "Isn't she adorable?!?"

Deadbeat: When you run into his best friend and his wife at the mall, you're shocked to hear see them carrying a little bundle of joy since your guy forgot to even tell you they were expecting. He 'forgot'.

Hey, this isn't cast in stone. He could probably have just never thought about it. The best way to know what he's thinking is simply asking him. Your ovaries won't wait forever you know!
