There’s really no such thing as the perfect man. There is, however, such a thing as a guy who’s perfect for you, regardless of his flaws. He doesn’t have to be rich or conventionally handsome, but he’ll be one of the best things that has ever happened to you for these 17 reasons:

He actually respects you.

Not only does he respect you, but he extends that to everyone he meets. He believes that deep down, we’re all worthy of the same reverence regardless of where we are in life, and that you have to treat people the way you want to be treated.

He takes care of himself.

He eats right and makes sure that his health is one of his top priorities. A man that knows how to take care of himself will be able to take care of you if the occasion ever calls for it.

He owns his faults.

The perfect boyfriend won’t be perfect and he won’t ever pretend to be. He knows his faults and works on them daily, never making excuses for the less-than-ideal attributes he possesses.

He really listens to what you have to say.

He remembers important things you’ve said because he listens to you when you speak. He’s genuinely interested in your thoughts and opinions and makes it clear by never having to be reminded of something you’ve told him.

He gives you what you need without you having to ask.

He takes the time to get to know you on such a level that he knows just how to give you what you need. If you’re more emotional, he’s there to support you, and if he knows you like to handle things alone, he’ll give you space.

He tries his damndest to romance you.

He may not be the most romantic guy on the planet, but he doesn’t have to be as long as he tries his hardest to show you just that — he tried. He’ll pull out all the stops and make sure that you’re aware of his intentions to keep the romance alive.

He goes out of his way to make you feel secure.

You never question his intentions or feelings because he’s worked long and hard to ensure that you’re secure in the relationship. He makes it a goal to provide a sense of security that no boyfriend ever has before.

He makes other girls jealous of you.

The perfect boyfriend will have all of your friends saying, “I wish my boyfriend did that!” when you tell them about little things he’s done for you. The way he treats you, in private and public, will have all other women wondering when they’ll meet a guy like him.

He pushes you to be the greatest you can be.

He’ll be the cheerleader to your quarterback in the game of life and will always have your back when it comes to your own goals. He’ll never stop pushing you to accomplish things he knows you truly want because deep down he believes that if anyone could do it, it’d be you.

He has passion.

Not only for you and your relationship, but for his own personal work and hobbies, as well. He understands the importance of having something in life to be passionate about and he never wavers when it comes to his own.

He never stops making an effort.

It could be helping you clean the house or making it a point to have weekly date nights, but whatever it is, he puts in effort every damn day. He’ll never let you feel as though you’re being taken for granted.

He’s always growing as a person.

The perfect boyfriend will never accept being stagnant. He’ll always want to grow and become better than the day he was before because he knows that’s how people become the best versions of themselves.

He keeps you sane.

When the struggles of life are driving you crazy, he’s there to be the rock that grounds you. Not only will he never allow you to lose your mind, he’ll never be the one driving you there.

You can always count on him.

If you need something, you know you can rely on him to be there for you. Whether it’s soup when you’re sick or a shoulder to cry on during a rough time in your life, he’s always there for you.

He does what he says he’s going to do.

When he makes a commitment to something, big or small, he does it. He never flakes on you and understands that his word is his bond.

He’s compassionate.

When it comes to worldly issues, he’s compassionate to the struggles of others. He’ll never accept that people in bad situations put themselves there and understands the plights of those less fortunate.

He withholds judgment.

He’s never judgmental when it comes to things he doesn’t understand. Whether it be judging you, or others, his mind is always open and he prides himself on his social acumen.
