So you’re seeing this guy and he seems wonderful in so many ways. Maybe you’re in that first flush of romance, where every look, every touch has meaning. He’s kind and considerate. He remembers not only your birthday, but every detail you’ve ever told him, like your parent’s anniversary, or your dog’s birthday. If this guy were any sweeter, you’re sure he could walk on water.
Maybe his powers are supernatural. Ever thought of that?
Here’s ten ways to tell if your boyfriend is really an angel:
1. He’s Graceful
Part of being an angel is to live in God’s grace, that means being graceful. He’s not the type to crash into the coffee table or trip over his own feet, nor does he clump around with two left feet on the dance floor—in fact he’s a really good dancer.
He moves silently, too, so that there will be times you don’t hear him coming. That’s so he can sneak up on demons, and whisper the truth in people’s ears without them knowing he’s there. Sometimes, you might be the only one who sees him. He’s okay with that.
2. He’s Independent
This guy has his own thing going on. Since angels don’t really need to sleep, he’s usually out all night fighting demons and protecting the world from evil. While he wants to be with you, he may simply not have time. He needs you to trust him, especially when you ask him where he’s been all night, he really can’t tell you, because angels can’t tell people what they really do, not even YOU. In return, he will trust you and not act jealous or possessive when you’re out with friends.
3. He has strong protective instincts
He’s not controlling, but he will be protective of you—fearlessly so. If he senses you are in danger, he will try to warn you. If you refuse to listen, he will turn up at the last minute to save your life. This is the kind of guy who, if you’re watching TV together and he hears a noise, he will get up off the couch and see what’s going on. He knows there are dangers in the world, and he will stand in front of you to protect you–as long as you let him!
4. He’s humble
This guy doesn’t have a huge ego. In fact, because of what pride did to Lucifer, all angels keep their egos in check, so he doesn’t brag or act all high and mighty about things. While he may have nice things and dress well, he’s not flashy. He doesn’t wear a lot of jewelry or drive a flashy car. He doesn’t need to. He can fly faster than a Maserati!
5. He’s really easy on the eyes
Angels are better looking than we are, and your angel boyfriend is no different. He’s hot… like celestial hot. We’re talking tall, well-built and Henry Cavill kind of hot. There will always be a light in his eyes, even when he’s sad. At times, he’s even got a bit of a glow around him. That’s his halo.
He may be so humble that he’s in disguise and not super-hot, and he may look kind of ordinary, but even then, there will be a light in his eyes and a glow to him that makes him stand out.
6. He’s really well-behaved
In addition to being super-hot, this guy is well-behaved. He’s kind, thoughtful and polite. He’ll open doors for you and help you with the dishes. He’s not the kind to pressure you for sex or kiss and tell either. Angels are good at keeping secrets.
All your friends will love him, but don’t worry, he only has eyes for you. Your pets love to be around him and may trip over you to hang out in his lap, so his lap may get a little crowded. Your mom thinks he’s awesome. Everyone loves him (except maybe your dad, but that’s another story).
7. He’s responsible
Angels answer to higher laws than everyone else, or perhaps they’re just aware of those laws and act accordingly. If this guy does something wrong, he owns what he’s done. He doesn’t try to wriggle out of it or blame others. He’s accountable and you’ll find it refreshing to be around someone like that. Sometimes, you might not even know or understand what was wrong about what he did, and that’s okay. He’ll make it right.
8. He has an excellent memory
He remembers special occasions, like your birthday, your favorite color, and the anniversary of your first date—even from your past lives! This guy has an excellent memory and will remember things the average person forgets—like the sixteenth century!
9. He doesn’t carry a cell phone
Since angels operate at a different vibrational frequency than humans, they don’t interact well with our technology. Things like cell phones and even computers don’t work around him sometimes. When he waves his hand below the automatic dryer, it may not register. This guy may need you to push the elevator buttons for him. Don’t make a big deal about it.
If he happens to have a cell phone, he may not use it. This is a good thing. It means when you’re on a date, he’s spending time with you–not texting or tweeting his friends (see He’s really well-behaved, above).
10. He has wings—and a sword
Not just wings, but really big wings. They’re invisible most of the time, but if he really cares about you, he may show them to you. His sword is pretty cool too. Oh, and he can perform some basic miracles, like heal your wounds. But he’s pretty low key about it. Angels are humble, and so is he.
If your boyfriend meets all of the above criteria—congratulations! You’re dating an angel. If all of the above happens to apply to you, then you may be an angel too! If you suspect you know an angel, or even if you don’t, please comment below.
Note: If he’s a fallen angel, some, or all, of these may not apply. (I’ll cover how to tell if your boyfriend is a fallen angel in a future post.)
