20 Signs Your Boyfriend Is One Of The Good Ones

Diply 28 Jan 2016

When we were younger, most of us thought we wanted the Hollywood man: he's romantic, passionate, and just bad enough to keep things interesting. As we got older, though, we realized that maybe that's not the ideal setup. After the credits roll, that Hollywood guy isn't quite so dreamy. With romance comes deception, with passion comes unpredictability, and that bad-boy attitude can turn south at the drop of a hat.

Lies and drama are exhausting, and the stress of an unpredictable partner wears on you over time. So where does that leave us?

Honestly, it leaves you ready for the right kind of guy. He's simple, loyal, and not interested in giving you the runaround. He's the one who wins your heart slowly and gently, and you wouldn't let him go for anything.

If this sounds like your guy, chances are you've snagged a unicorn.

1. He doesn't play games.

19. You two have the most fun when you're together, whether it's just cooking dinner and washing dishes, or going out for laser tag.

20. Most importantly, he is your best friend.

He's goofy, makes terrible puns, and forgets to clean up after himself, but he'd do anything for you. Treat him right and hold on tight to this one, because you don't want him going anywhere.
