11 Signs You Have The Best Boyfriend In The World

When you fall for a guy, it’s natural to think the sun shines out of his butthole and he’s the most perfect man to ever walk the earth. However, does your dude actually stack up in the Best Boyfriend category? Here are some signs you’ve found not just a good one but the greatest one.

  1. He knows your Starbucks order off by heart. Venti almond latte, no syrup. It’s simple but you’ve never had a boyfriend who remembered your preference for non-dairy milk or a lack of cloying sweetness in your morning brew. Your current guy remembers every single time and never gets it wrong. Ah, what a relief.
  2. He loves your dog almost as much as you do. I mean, he could never love your pup on the same deep level as you—it’s your baby, after all—but he truly sees your furry pal as part of the family and treats him like it. It warms your heart to see the two of them interacting, especially since they get so excited to see each other every time your boyfriend comes over.
  3. He doesn’t see cuddling as a chore, he considers it a pleasure. While a lot of guys see cuddling as a prelude to sex or do it out of duty, this guy’s different. Not only does he not mind cuddling, he loves it and often initiates it himself. He knows there’s nothing better than getting all cozy under the blankets while you share some takeout. Yup, he’s the best.
  4. He brags about you to his friends and family and never misses an opportunity to show you off. He doesn’t hide you away or hesitate to bring you along to friends’ birthday parties, family functions, or work outings—you’re his perma plus-one and he wouldn’t have it any other way. He wants you there by his side and he wants everyone to know exactly who you are because you’re going to be there for a long time. Swoon!
  5. He calls when he says he will and never flakes on date nights. There’s nothing worse than someone saying they’ll be in touch at a certain time and then never hearing from them for hours or sometimes even days later. That never happens with your boyfriend—he’s punctual and consistent. If he says he’ll be over at 7 p.m., he’s at your door by 6:59. If he asks you to go to the movies this weekend, nothing comes up last minute. It’s awesome.
  6. He looks at you like you’re the only woman in the world. You know you’re no supermodel but he makes you feel like one. You never have to worry that other women are going to catch his eye or feel like you should be thinner or prettier or something more for him—you can see by the way he looks at you that you’re more than enough and everything he could possibly want.
  7. He doesn’t judge you for eating a whole pizza solo. There’s no expectation that you’ll stick to salads and no guilt about woofing down an entire pizza on your own—not only is your boyfriend not judging you, he’s cheering you on. He even asks an hour later if you’re ready for dessert. Heaven must be missing an angel!
  8. He finds your independence to be your sexiest quality. Instead of being intimidated by your intense independence and self-sufficiency, it’s a total turn-on for your boyfriend. He admires your strength and ambition and feels lucky to be by your side as you conquer the world. Now that’s the kind of guy every woman needs.
  9. He makes you laugh even when you’re having the worst day ever. You can be nearly homicidal with rage or in floods of tears with sadness and somehow, he manages to put a smile back on your face. It sounds stupid and cliche but he knows exactly what to say and do to make you laugh and it warms your heart every day.
  10. He loves nothing more than making plans for your future together. You can’t count the number of times he’s started sentences with, “When we get to…” or “In a few months/years…” He doesn’t shy away from future talk, he brings it up and loves imagining what your lives together will be like down the road. It’s an incredible feeling.
  11. He doesn’t just tell you he loves you, he makes you feel it every day. This is maybe the best thing of all. Want to know if you have an amazing boyfriend? Pay attention to how he makes you feel. It’ll tell you everything you need to know.
