Signs of a Good Boyfriend

Marlene Alphonse
Every girl aspires to have a good boyfriend who will love her and accept her as she is, with her flaws and imperfections. If you have a girl in your life, love her with all your heart and she will reciprocate your love for the rest of her life.
Love enables you to put your deepest feelings and fears in the palm of your partner's hand, knowing they will be handled with care.
- Carl S. Avery
Everyone wants to get a taste of this wonderful bliss called love. Being loved by someone or loving someone from the heart is one of the greatest joys ever known. When in love, you tend to be in 'fourteenth' heaven, floating in happiness.
Apart from the joys you experience in this special relationship, it is also necessary that you work towards strengthening the bond between you and your girlfriend. Every girl expects her guy to be an understanding and caring person who has genuine feelings for her. There are many songs that have immortalized this emotion. As Bryan Adams sings,
'When you love a woman then tell her
that she's really wanted
When you love a woman then tell her that she's the one
'cause she needs somebody to tell her
that it's gonna last forever

Qualities of a Good Boyfriend

You have been eying a girl in your neighborhood and want to approach her, planning for a lifetime relationship. Before putting your foot forward, there are a few things that you must keep in mind. You can follow these and see your girl falling in love with the person you are.

A Friend First, Boyfriend Later

One of the most important things in order to be a good boyfriend, is that you need to be a good friend first.
Friends are those people with whom we share anything and everything, without any qualms or worries. Be there for her and support her, in times of joy as well as in harrowing times, when she feels she's at the end of the world.
Celebrating her joys and being there when she feels down will help you both bond well. A comforting word, when she is depressed, or even your presence, to share her happiness, will definitely work wonders.

Remain Committed

Infidelity or cheating is the last thing than any girl will expect from a relationship. Know that she trusts you with her full heart and soul. Gaining a person to trust is tougher than breaking it.
Do not betray that trust she has in you because a broken trust is hard to heal. Show genuine interest in whatever she does. She relies on you to be more than just a mere listener so a few suggestions here and there when she asks you will be definitely appreciated.

Communicate Your Feelings

Another effective dating rule for men that should be followed is to learn to communicate. Communication is the key ingredient in any relationship. Confide your feelings to her, about anything.
Your work problems or any other issue. Open up about your feelings rather than just keeping them to yourself and cribbing about it. Just sharing your problems with her can make her feel wanted and also give her confidence to share her woes.

Show Her That She is Special

Girls loved to be pampered and admired. An occasional gift, like soft toys, flowers, chocolates etc., out of the blue can pamper her enough.
Girls often don't go looking for expensive, state-of-the-art gifts from their boyfriends. A single stem of rose will speak louder than that expensive piece of jewelry.
A gift out of the blue to surprise her, can work wonders, the memory of which will be imprinted in her memory forever. You can even use your creativity and come out with some unique gifts, specially made for her, which will definitely be treasured.

Love Through Gestures

Be a true romantic from your heart. Gestures speak louder than words. A warm hug, a gentle caress will express your love more strongly than mere words. Call her or leave her a note unexpectedly, telling how much you love her.
Use creative methods to make love notes and leave them in places where she least expects to find them. She is sure to be taken by surprise and bask in the warmth of your love. Your sweet, thoughtful ways can kindle the fire of romance and keep it burning for a long time.

Respect Her as an Individual

So you have won her over and you are in a serious relationship with her. Men in love can get a bit possessive of their girlfriends. Though you are a couple now, you must remember that you are two different individuals with different needs.
Don't cling on to your girlfriend as if she is going to disappear forever. Respect her space and privacy. If she needs to be on her own or wants to spend time with her friends, let her be. Instead, don't go on nagging her about whatever she does. Allow her to be free, doing what she desires.
Remember a healthy relationship is solely built on love and trust and not on material things. Concentrate more on building a stronger bond with your girl that will stand the test of time. Go ahead and sweep her off her feet. Wish you luck!
