We will give you a few pointers about how real men treat their partners, so you can decide if your current man is worth keeping or kicking.

#1. He always manages to pleasantly surprise you

There is a fine line between a nice and a nasty surprise, and a real man knows how not to cross said line. When out on a date, you’re right to expect certain things to happen, but a real man will also include some small and very pleasant surprises that you would never have thought of.

#2. He always listens and actually cares about what you tell him

A lot of men only pretend to care about what their partner wants and needs. How many times have you told your man something important and, when asking him about it later, he has no idea what you’re talking about? Real men know when to shut up and listen, know when to act on what you’ve confessed to them, and know when to be supportive.

This one is important. If he acts with respect towards you, it not only means that he respects you, but also that he respects himself, which is a very important quality in a man. It will also make you feel wanted and needed. Not to mention that people will always admire the way he acts with you, and many will want to be in your place.

Men usually have a hard time expressing what they feel. A real man, even if he has trouble expressing his feelings in pretty words, will find a way to do it by other means – soft music, dimmed lights, your favorite flowers, or a scented bubble bath waiting for you to come home after a hectic day at work.
