2. He Respects You And Other People

A man will treat your family with compassion and will also respect their idea or opinion. In my opinion, if he abuses or curses you or someone else as you do not meet his standards, then he is a boy. Those boys often get intimidated or threatened by some things that smart women do and as they could not express their own feelings, they make use of cursing. He may still be a good boyfriend yet he has problems.

To put in simple words, boys may be intimidated by smart women while men are strongly stimulated by them. If he feels insecure about his intellect, he will not risk it with an intelligent girl. The boys will just stay within his comfort zone whereas a man wants some challenges coming from a smart woman.

4. He Gives His All To You As Well As Your Relationship

A man may not earn too much money, yet he is not afraid of spending each and every penny on you. He may not be able to purchase an iPad as Christmas gift for you, but he will do or get the best thing that he could afford.

5. He Trusts You

When you are around other men, he trusts you and will not be insecure about the fact that other guys will take his place. There are some reasons why men feels insecure about your relationship, but that does not mean that they continuously stop you from socializing just because he feel insecure by other men. He can be a thousand miles away yet he knows and believes that no one will love you better than him and your own heart as well as loyalty will lie with him. A long distance relationship or business trips will not bother him. He may miss you yet he always trusts you.
