Don’t be fooled into thinking that guys avoid relationships like the plague. The truth is that when a relationship is working, there are many aspects that guys truly enjoy. You can keep that in mind when noticing your own guy’s behaviors and preferences.

Guys love these 12 things about relationships:

#1. Cuddling

Taking care of yourself sexually is simple even when you’re single. Masturbation and one-night stands take care of that need. Cuddling is something generally reserved for relationships, and it’s really comforting at the end of each day.

#2. Standard Friend

When you’re in a relationship, you have a person likes when you share even the dullest details of your day. You can call and message them at any time and know that they’ll be happy to hear from you.

#5. Relaxing on Night’s Out

Being single can be fun for guys, but it also comes with a lot of pressure. Every time a guy goes out, they worry about how the women around them are seeing them. Once you’re in a relationship, going out becomes a time to actually relax and enjoy yourself.

#6. Endless Date Nights

For a guy, having a girlfriend is great because it means that date night can happen whenever they feel like it. No more need to try to convince a girl to go out. Their best friend and partner is always ready to do something fun together.
