11 Things GOOD Boyfriends Do Differently

@dimove

1. He is passionate

The biggest way to tell the difference between a boy and a man is to gauge his passion. Does he want to sit on the couch all day and play video games? Or does he have goals and hobbies he spends time on? A good boyfriend is a passionate boyfriend — one who knows what he wants and goes after it.

2. He lets you know where you stand

Shitty boyfriends do things on purpose that make you feel insecure about the relationship. Good boyfriends do not play games. If a guy can’t have a conversation with you about the status of the relationship he is (repeat after me) NOT a good boyfriend.

“You are the only person who gets to decide if you are happy or not—do not put your happiness into the hands of other people. Do not make it contingent on their acceptance of you or their feelings for you. At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter if someone dislikes you or if someone doesn’t want to be with you. All that matters is that you are happy with the person you are becoming. All that matters is that you like yourself, that you are proud of what you are putting out into the world. You are in charge of your joy, of your worth. You get to be your own validation. Please don’t ever forget that.” — Bianca Sparacino
