“There is no better test of a man’s integrity than his behavior when he is wrong.” – Marvin Williams
How does a woman decide if she wants to spend her entire life with a man? It is quite an important decision to make. How can she even be sure if a man is worth spending time with? One needs to take certain characteristics and situations into consideration for that. That’s when someone reveals their true self. You can stay with a man only if he has these following six qualities:
1. Never being abusive
Violence in any form is never justified unless it’s used for self-defense. A good man would never infer domestic violence on their partner. How much heated an argument may become, he would never lose his cool to the extent of stooping down to a beastly behavior.
2. Being supportive
Emotional support is something that everyone looks for in a healthy relationship. One must see if their partner is supportive and encouraging enough of their life choices. They should not be condescending towards you. If something provides you a sense of happiness, your partner should stand by it. They should be beside you in times of crisis. On the other hand, if they see that something is going to be disadvantageous for you, then they should motivate you to change your decisions, however, without belittling you.
3. Making you feel safe
Everyone seeks protection and security from their partner whether it’s a man or a woman. Looking out for your woman, is something that is expected of the right man. He should see that his partner is not taken advantage of. He should become her shield in every way.
4. Being selfless
Putting his own selfish interests and goals before his duties towards you, is not something a good man does. He is confident and does not think it necessary to bribe you in doing things. He would rather know what little things make you happy and act accordingly. He would splurge a little, if he can afford to and buy that smile on your face.
6. Being honest
A good man would never cheat on their partner. He might get tempted to do so in many ways but he would never take that step. Neither would he steal or lie to his partner. Su actions can never be forgiven and it shake the foundations of the relationship. a person who commits it , is not suitable to live with.
7. Making their partner feel good about themselves
Warmth, love and care are the pillars of a relationship. It is by showering these gestures that a man makes their partner feel special about themselves. You would look for that one kiss and hug when you come home all tired at the end of the day. If your man is successful at providing you with that comfort, you know that he is the one to look forward to.
No one perfect and no one is whole or complete. A true relationship brings two people together and fulfils their shortcomings. If you are able to find solace and comfort in the presence of your man, in his warm embrace, then he is definitely the one.
