He is not afraid to tell the whole world that he loves you. He is even proud of introducing you to his friends and families.

2. You feel welcome and comfortable around his family and friends.


You never felt out of place whenever you’re with his company, you feel comfortable being with them as they treat you like part of their family.

3. He never forgets his wallet.

He won’t let you pay the bills or say “oh I forgot my wallet, would you mind …” But of course there is an exemption to this one, a woman can pay the bills sometimes but not to the extent that you seems like to be a sugar mom.

4. He doesn’t play “grab-ass” in public.

To make it short he is not that “pervert” type. He treats you with love and respect.

5.  He is very affectionate.


He shows his warm and tender care, and always up for some intimate cuddling.

6. He is chivalrous.


This is pretty self-explanatory, basically what a real gentleman do.

7. He is full of surprises.


He never fails to surprise you. Not just with random gifts, flowers, and chocolates but also by being a better person each day.

8. He’ll wait patiently for you to finish up your shopping.

Shopping isn’t men’s specialty but he’s willing to spend time shopping with you.

9. He respects not only you but also those important people in your life.


This is one important thing to watch out for when in a relationship. If he is super sweet to you but constantly ragging on your parents or friends, you need to cut them loose. Respect must be given not only to you but also to those whom you love.

10. He trusts you with all his might.
