There is a difference between boys and men. Men are a class apart. But there are men and then there are men. There is fine line between just a man and a good man. As men it’s our duty to be gentlemanly to those we encounter, especially the significant other.

Now the question is what makes a good man? There are various traits of a good man and here we have described a few for you.

Signs you’re with a good man

  1. He inspires you

A good man is already inspirational in his deeds and words. His strong morale and character are an inspiration. Still he never loses an opportunity to evoke inspiration in you. He inspires you to be yourself and to bring out the best in you.

  1. He makes you feel beautiful

There may be many who say you’re beautiful but none will make you feel it like he does. A good man makes you feel beautiful inside and out with not just his words but his actions, the way he interacts with you physically and mentally.

  1. He makes you feel safe and secure

A good man is always there to stand up and defend his woman in any unfortunate situation. The feeling of safety and security is vital for a woman in a relationship. It is the man’s duty to make sure you feel safe.

  1. He seeks constant improvement

A good man is never content. I mean he always works to better himself. Be it learning a new skill, building his body or any other aspect of his life. He is constantly seeking ways to better himself.

  1. He is honest

This is the most important attribute of any man. A good man never lies, cheats, or betrays anyone, especially their loved ones. Neither do they hold back from saying things as it is, whether good or bad. They don’t fabricate things.

  1. He is never abusive

A good man is never abusive towards you or anyone else. A good man will never abuse his partner physically, emotionally, or mentally. Even when it comes to dealing with external problems, he will do it with his intellect and strength instead of becoming abusive.

  1. He is supportive

A good man always has your back. It doesn’t mean he will be your ‘yes man’ but he knows the importance of being supportive to and will be there when the situation calls for it.

  1. He does the little things

It’s not the expensive gifts that make a woman feel loved but the little things that a man does and a good man knows this well. Opening doors, appreciating the new makeover, or just feeding the kids, a good man is never too busy to acknowledge it with a gesture.

  1. You’re his top priority

It doesn’t mean he will forget everything else and appease your every whim. It means he will be selfless in his deeds and he will put you first. It’s a man’s duty to put his woman first. A good man does this more often than not.

  1. He stands by you

It’s the duty of a man to stand by you and a good man, no matter what the situation, will stand by you. He will never ignore you. When a good man is committed to you, there is no in-between. He will be there through thick and thin.

  1. He trusts you and works to keep yours

Trust cannot be forced or brought but earned, a good man works to earn your trust and once he does he works to keep it. He never leaves his trust in doubt. If you have earned his trust, there is nothing that can shake it unless you create such a situation.
