This is sad but true – a real man is hard to find today. It’s not that you are not serious in your search for one. And it's not like they have gone into hiding either. There is genuinely a serious shortage of real men.
However, sometimes they are hiding in plain sight, standing right before your oblivious eyes. And that might not be your problem – in a world swarming with the wrong kind of men, spotting a good one can be a little tricky as well.
But how do you know you have come across a real man?
What do you look at? It is the dressing, or the walk, or how he talks? Maybe it’s how he shows affection.
The surprising truth - it’s none of these.
There is one quality that only real men possess – they don’t make excuses. What they do instead is make an effort.
Boys will profusely express their love for you, but no actions to prove it will be forthcoming.
With real men, such words are accompanied by actions.
Real men are also proud of your achievements, and will not find them intimidating as boys will. A real man will not play games either. So, they will not keep you waiting when you should be out on a date.
If anything, they will make an effort to be there when you show up. A real man does not need to play games and manipulate you so that they feel better about themselves.
To a real man, your happiness is their happiness as well. So, their desire will be to make you feel better and happy about everything.
A real man is also really protective.
Your safety will be a major priority for him, and they will do plenty to make sure you feel safe. He will keep your head on his chest to make sure you feel safe and protected.
A real man can be reached on the phone even when you don’t expect them to be. Boys will usually not be available on phone, and they will have a lot of excuses why.
Real men will travel a long distance just to be with you without making any excuses.
A real man will usually put your happiness and pleasure before their own. He will take great delight in seeing the woman he cares about satisfied and will willingly make sacrifices to make sure you are happy.
A real man will not want to lose you. So, he will try to make sure you feel loved and appreciated so that you know you are a priority in his life.
Real men care deeply about the little things. That is why they will love your smile and anything that brings a smile to your face.
A real man is also very respectful.
They will never treat you in a way that makes you feel less deserving, and they will never have to apologize for disrespecting you because that will never happen in the first place. Even when you disagree, the respect they have for you will still be there.
A real man knows what he wants.
A real man knows that YOU are what he wants. He will not waste his time going after other women because he knows you are all he needs.
A real man is also honest, and will readily admit when he is wrong.
Real men are also honest about their feelings. They will not second-guess themselves when they say they love you, even if it is in front of thousands of people.
All a real man wants is to give you all his love and he doesn’t mind if the whole world knows how crazy he is about you.
Excuses like how he is not used to expressing his feelings are not things you will have to worry about when dealing with a real man.
A real man also thinks of the future, and they will often involve you when planning for it. They take charge of their own lives and ensure that you both succeed. They want to build a future with you.
A real man also believes in you, which is why he will not be afraid to challenge you. He knows your accomplishments are his as well. They also want to work on themselves for both your sakes.
Love is not a scary thing to a real man as it is for boys.
Whether they are getting it or giving it, real men open their hearts and minds to this emotion. Boys will run away or get scared when they experience love. But real men embrace it whole-heartedly because they can handle it.
