10 Things Every Girl Needs To Hear From Her Boyfriend

Getting a boyfriend can feel like winning the lottery or landing your dream job, thanks to our swiping obsessed and hook-up crazy culture. But just because you finally found someone special doesn’t mean that the hard work and effort is over. You still have to make sure that the guy that you’re with is worthy of you. If he’s your official boyfriend, here are 10 things that you deserve to hear from him:

  1. “I’m really happy with you.” You know that he makes you happier than anyone ever has before, so why wouldn’t you want him to say it to you? You deserve to hear this from the guy that you’re calling your BF. You need to know how he feels and that you’re on the same page. After all, you don’t want to wonder if he’s fallen as fast as you have. These things should be super clear.
  2. “You’re beautiful.” A guy who can’t say these words to you is a guy that needs to be dumped ASAP. He absolutely needs to think this way about you. Otherwise, there’s no reason for you to waste your time. You need someone who makes you feel like the gorgeous woman that you are, whether you’ve got your signature shade of lipstick on for date night or you just woke up with the messiest hair ever.
  3. “You’re the coolest girl.” You think that he’s the best and he’s totally changed your life for the better. You deserve to hear the same thing from him. If he doesn’t feel this way, then you should find out sooner rather than later so you can be free to find someone who does.
  4. “I can’t imagine my life without you.” A real man isn’t afraid of the future, and he’s definitely not afraid of a future with you. If he says something along these lines, whether he follows it up with talking about moving in together or just makes it clear that you’re headed in that direction, it’s romantic AF. And it’s a huge relief. You don’t have to worry about him bailing on you when things get real. Things are already real and he’s all in.
  5. “My mom is going to love you.” A guy’s mom is super important to him. If you haven’t met her yet, you’ve definitely heard stories about her, and you know that you need to make a good impression. Your boyfriend should absolutely say this to you before you two meet. It’s super sweet and will also ease your nerves… so you can actually make that good impression without freaking out.
  6. “I love waking up next to you.” This is the best thing that you can hear from someone, especially if you had a rough time dating before meeting this amazing guy. It makes up for all the horror stories and it’s just incredibly sweet. When you hear this from your boyfriend, you know that you have something truly special. He doesn’t want to wake up next to just anyone, he wants to wake up next to you. It’s like something out of a romantic comedy (you know, the kind that you swear you hate but secretly love…).
  7. “I support you.” It may seem obvious that your partner should be 100 percent supportive of your career endeavors, but sadly, it’s really not. So many guys are freaked out by smart, independent, ambitious women. The fact that your BF says this proves that he’s not like them at all. He loves that you’re intelligent and he wants you to go super far.
  8. “You can tell me anything.” This is seriously the hottest thing that a guy can say to you. You deserve to hear that your boyfriend wants you to trust him and wants you to tell him anything and everything. He’s in it and he wants to be your go-to person no matter what’s going on in your life. How amazing is that?!
  9. “Things are going so well.” When your boyfriend tells you this, you know that he cares deeply about you and your relationship. He wants you to know how great he thinks things are going. This definitely proves that you two are right for each other and things will most likely continue in a really positive direction. Also, the fact that he isn’t embarrassed to say something like this is another reason that you should keep him around. Real men are honest about this kind of stuff.
  10. “I’m here for you.” A guy that tells you this is a total keeper. He isn’t scared of hearing about the dark and difficult parts of your life, and he truly wants to be your number one when you need a shoulder to cry on or when you need to vent. If you weren’t already hopelessly in love with him, hearing him say this to you should totally seal the deal.
