In today’s world, it’s so hard to find a guy that totally
“gets you,” isn’t over-confident, has no player-like
tendencies, and has all the qualities that would make him
perfect boyfriend material. While no one is ever perfect,
there are some personality traits that would make him
come just within reach, or at least perfect to you! In my
opinion, these personality traits are something every guy
should possess if they want to be perfect boyfriend
material and become the one you want to be with for the
Dishonesty is such a big, big deal breaker. No one wants
to deal with a guy who constantly lies about his feelings,
whereabouts, friends or anything else important. And,
yes, that includes little white lies too, because if he lies
about liking your outfit, there’s no telling whether he
feels he can lie about something else! I (and I assume
you ladies too) value the truth, in all situations. It’s
always the number one determining quality that I look
for in someone I’m dating when deciding if he has all the
right traits to be perfect boyfriend material!
Intelligence is such a huge turn-on. Instead of trying to
impress you with corny pick-up lines, he should be trying
to impress you with knowledge. Intelligence is so
important because it lets you know that he can make
smart decisions and inferences, form thought-provoking
opinions, and carry interesting conversations. There is
nothing worse than a guy whom you can’t have a decent
conversation with. You guys should be able to learn from
one another and expand as people.
Open-mindedness is such a good quality to have. If
someone is willing to try something new, is open to
innovative ideas, opinions, adventure, different styles
and just an overall willingness to accept things without a
cloud of judgment hanging above, he is a great guy in my
book. If the guy you’re crushing on or already in a
relationship with has this personality trait, then I’d say
he’s a keeper!
Laughter is one of life’s simplest pleasures. A guy that
can make you laugh in times of heartache, times of
depression or embarrassment, sadness or despair, or even
just a regular day, is a guy that will help nurture a
healthy relationship. Not that he has to be a jokester all
the time, or a class clown per se, but a guy that can make
light of the situations that might be difficult for you can
surely make you feel a lot better. Laughter is a powerful
medicine after all.
I know I always want to look for someone who has a
caring nature. I want to make sure that at the end of the
day, he’ll be there when I need him, and that he’ll
actually want to be there. Nothing is worse than being in
a relationship, or getting to know someone and realizing
that the only things they care about are themselves! You
want to know that, should you ever need solace or
comfort, they’ll be the shoulder you cry on.
Does your guy sit home all day eating Cheetos and
playing video games on the couch without ever thinking
of doing anything else? Then, that’s definitely a warning
sign that he might not have the right qualities that make
him perfect boyfriend material. Now, I in no way bash
gamers, but he should want to accomplish something in
his life. Whether that is goal is to be a lawyer,
entrepreneur, businessman, or even a professional video
game tester, he should at the very least have a plan to get
to where he wants to be. His future and plans for such
should always be on the horizon. Or else, you’ll be
moving on, and he’ll be holding you back!
A guy that is understanding is a guy who listens.
Wouldn’t it be great if every guy listened AND retained
the information you told him? Well, there are a few who
do, and that definitely sets them apart from the rest. You
want a guy to understand what you’re going through or
the opinions you have, even if they don’t necessarily
agree with them. Understanding is such an essential
personality trait because it lets you know that
communication between you two will go more smoothly
than someone who refuses to see your point of view.
These are only but a few great personality traits that help
you determine whether he might be perfect boyfriend
material. Among amazing traits that I look for in a guy,
I’d also like him to be charming, adventurous and of
What personality traits do you feel make a guy perfect boyfriend material?
