6. He will not make you feel like the only one working for the relationship
2 people make a couple, not 1. 2 people have to work for their relationship, not 1. This might be the most simple numerical equation anyone’s heard. If he still can’t follow it, then you are wasting your time. If he’s not willing or able to put the same effort in the relationship as you, then you need to call him out on that. If you two have been together long enough and you know he’s not like this then cut him some slack, otherwise kick him to the curb.
7. He will not cheat
Cheating is never an option. And it’s a personal opinion that there is no coming back from it. I especially get irritated who claim they made a mistake. No brother, mistakes are made when you don’t know what you’re doing. When you chose to cheat on your partner, you had every will and intention of doing so and you damn well knew what you were doing. When do people commit themselves to each other, they have made a promise to be together. Nobody gets to decide whether that promise could be made void for a few times.
8. He will never be disrespectful
This just doesn’t hold true for his partner, but in fact, should be practiced towards every person he comes across. Those who are actually confident in themselves, don’t feel the need to put down or sneer at others. True humility is a sign of a great man, not a condescending attitude.
9. He will not put off talking about things that matter
A good man is not afraid of facing the uncomfortable truths. He knows that it is normal to have problems, whether at work or home and he knows that the only way to get through them is to face them and talk about them. He also realizes the importance of doing so in a timely manner. And so he will never try to avoid you when you are about to bring up some rather conflicting conversation or the likes. He also knows how to handle the said conversations and can be expected to maintain his cool during them.
10. He doesn’t abuse
Abusing behavior is far too common than we would like to admit. It arises from a need to enhance and validate one’s self-worth by making another suffer. It can be physical suffering, mental suffering or emotional. And it is found in all kinds of relationships. Needless to say, this is not healthy. So educate yourself towards the signs and if your man is the abusive kind, let him go. There are absolutely no excuses for such behavior.
