An extraordinary man will prioritize your self-care over his. He’s not concerned about a shopping list the length of his arm or even mopping up your vomit.
He’s lessening your burdens and you are the luckiest girl around.
10. “You’re hilarious.”
Your boyfriend prioritizes fun. Secondly, he thinks you bring it to him.
Laughter is a great stress reliever, also. Couples who laugh together, stay together. And who doesn’t want a lifetime of lightness and joy?
11. “I trust you.”
Trust is a massive deal to guys. If your man can be vulnerable with you and confide his deepest desires and secrets, you’re set to build an unbreakable bond. What you’ll get with this guy is a heart connection.
12. “I love you.”
It may go without saying that he should tell you this. Even so, declaring those three little words makes a difference to you.
He doesn’t have to say it every day. But he does have to say it when it counts — and with ease.
13. “I know.”
With this statement, he is acknowledging your feelings. He gets you like no other, and he’s there for you with a compassion you’ve never experienced before.
After saying “I know”, nothing else needs to be said. Instead, a touch, a squeeze of your hand, or a drying of a tear, those speak volumes. This man will be there when you’ve suffered a major disappointment or loss, in your most emotional, painful hour.
If your guy routinely uses these expressions, congratulations! You’ve hit the jackpot with this man! Stick with him, and you are destined to have a bright future together.
If not, don’t give up on your new boyfriend just yet. Listen to him a little closer before you show him the door. Give him a chance to reveal further that he is either worthy of being yours or better off with someone else.
