The best boyfriend knows that small gestures matter the most. That’s why he will like and comment on your Facebook and Instagram pictures not out of jealousy or selfish reasons but because he really loves you and wants everyone to know that. He is the one who takes selfies with you, who takes pictures of you without you noticing because he wants to ‘freeze’ the moment, who gives you time to do the things you love, who respects your friends and family.
He is someone who will take care of you when you are sick, who will plan amazing dates, who will love you and take care of you just as you do for him.
Your best boyfriend won’t be the “cool and detached” guy. He will be sweet and sensitive and he will fight for you and your relationship. He will reciprocate your effort. He will call you to make sure you got home safe. He will listen to you when you tell him about your friend’s love drama. He will call a cab when you are wearing heels. He will pick up your cousins from the airport when they are visiting. He will kiss you, hug you, and proudly show you off.
He is not a sweet talker who doesn’t fulfill his promises. Because let’s face it, everyone can whisper sweet nothings to you, but not everyone will show up at midnight because you sounded upset when he called you.
The best boyfriend is not someone who takes you for granted and then apologizes with a present and dinner. He is the one who is always there for you. He makes you his priority. He doesn’t leave you second-guessing and wondering where you stand with him. You will always know that you are his world.
He will talk about commitment because they are not scared to “give up” their single life because they want to be with you and that’s all that matters.
These men are not endangered species. They are not unicorns. They do exist. And they will change your life in the most beautiful way possible.
The best boyfriends out there know that it’s the little gestures that matter the most. And most importantly, when they love – they love hard. They are all in. They are not cowards to fear vulnerability and intimacy.
And these guys are the ones who are worth waiting for.
