Hotness And Beauty Are No Longer Your Top Priority In Potential Girlfriends
There used to be a time when all you think about and want in women is no longer what it used to be. Instead, you find yourself sizing up the ladies you meet for motherhood characteristics and a girl you can see a real future with.
The moment you find yourself looking for attributes that are much more than good looks, you’re most likely looking for substance and a serious relationship which is a good sign that becoming a father is part of your plans.
You Suddenly Develop Some Closeness With Your Nieces And Nephews

If you love playing with your nieces and nephews, there’s a chance that you’re subconsciously imagining what it would feel like playing with your own children some day.
The moment you begin to see children as interesting fellows that you enjoy hanging around with and not as annoying brats, you’re most likely on the path to becoming a father.
You’re Thinking Of Getting A Pet
Owning a cat and dog and wanting to have kids are completely different things, despite what people that are passionate about pets would tell you. However, having the urge to nurture and care for a pet can be a stepping stone towards having the urge to become a dad.
Partying And Clubbing Has Lost Its Appeal
The moment you become a parent there will be little time to spend on nights out partying and clubbing without your kids requiring your attention.
The moment you’re ready to let go of going to the bar, lounge or club every weekend, chances are you’re ready to become a father. You should however remember that while partying may seem tiresome and draining now, they would be memories you will hold on to as a father when you think back on your carefree days.
You’re Not Worried When You Think About The Future
If at the moment, all you think about is how to get the next girl, how to impress someone new or the right date ideas for your partner, you’re probably not thinking too far ahead.
Chances are kids are not in your plans and you still want as much personal time to enjoy as possible.
If the reverse is the case however, and you’re thinking about your future from a broader perspective where you have cute little kids running around in your overall plan, you’re most likely ready to be a dad.
