It may not be like your usual exchange of texts or length of conversations, but then he will make it a point to update you about how he is. He makes you feel good when you feel so nervous the day before your thesis defense. Some men have a false belief that looks don't matter when it comes to love; that's naïve. If you want a man to notice something then make it obvious. This is one of the worst ways of trying to hold a relationship together.
You'd expect the same from her, no? A good boyfriend respects your family; A bad boyfriend is disrespectful. He has an active social life, and gets along with people easily. It's inspiration that you're looking for; do not copy anyone. Whether it be mentally, emotionally or physically, a good man will never even think about being abusive towards you or harmful in any way. Not only is it great that he cares about himself, but your relationship will be healthier. A good way to tell if he will be a loyal boyfriend is to check out how honest and reliable he is with his friends and family. He tells you if he wants to take up Law or if he wants to enroll at a film school someday.
He should be someone that you know you can talk to, and, just as importantly, someone who you know will actually listen. Girls love a challenge just as much as men do.

A relationship is a two-way street. James Michael Sama is an award winning Boston based blogger on the topics of dating and relationships, having amassed over 30 million readers in just a year and a half.
Think about it: People are coming and going all the time in your life. How can he low-key insult you like that? Girls have a remarkable natural ability to scrutinize things objectively, so your girlfriend can tell if your look is classic and expensive or if it is drop-dead cheap from head to toe. Does he really think that he's in your league? If you truly do love your girlfriend, you would respect her too. The qualities that make a great boyfriend If you have to look for the one big quality that makes a good boyfriend, it would be his will to communicate with you and understand you. Though of course you should have your needs met.
Regardless of how attracted she is to you or how funny she thinks you are or how much money you have, if a woman cannot sleep soundly by your side at night, none of it matters. So it's thirty minutes of jogging every day, supplemented with a weightlifting session targeting a certain body part. You are still the same person as you were when he met you, you have only become more amazing and a whole lot tougher. Looks in a man are largely influenced by his dress and grooming habits. Experiment until you find a list of things she likes for you to do for her and add them to your repertoire—it's your job to find them. Again, I want to emphasize that these are things you should get in the habit of doing because you are a good person, not because you seek to be rewarded for your actions. As her man, you must master her body the same way a pianist masters his instrument.
But then, when he is with you, you are carefree and you feel guarded because you know he protects you. As it turns out, if you are too controlling and you act too insecure around her, that will make her less attracted to you and it will harm your relationship. He makes promises and keeps them. Being a good or bad boyfriend is not a black and white thing, at the most it has its grey areas, and it now depends on you to determine which end of the spectrum your boyfriend is leaning to. Can't he see that you deserve better? A good boyfriend will be a man who is generous with his time and with the material things that he has. Not everyone wants a man who is always making jokes and fooling around, but a sense of humour is an important trait to look for in a man.
Give her the time to miss you as well. He is your unmasked superhero, your angel in disguise. If you tell a guy that you don't want to have sex outside of marriage, but he relentlessly pressures you to anyway, then that's another boundary crossed. Giving her will make your girl love you more for being patient and understanding enough to consider her wants. A great boyfriend loves talking to his girlfriend.
It can be difficult for some people to express their emotions, fears and even inner-most desires, but having the right person in our lives often helps to open those doors. What gets you into trouble is who you are attracted to! This will make you appear insecure and desperate to a girl which is not cool at all; it turns girls off completely. Push yourself to reach those great heights, and realize that everything you do to build your life is not only for yourself but for the both of you. A good boyfriend knows how to manage his time. And she'll love you more for that, trust me! Always be interested in learning more about your girlfriend. Hey if you're romantic, sweet and all, but if you can't dress, you'll still strike out.
