5 signs of a GOOD man
16 November 2015, 14:53
Nairobi - How do you know if a man is good?
They should understand you
The problem most partners make is they generalize on things,
‘but isn’t that not what men/ women do?’ A person that is right for you gets
your kinks and creases. They are able to understand that you are just you and
not like every other person. They understand where you are coming from with
every situation that comes up and are willing to work with you on it not stress
you about it. Or integrate it into insults when you are arguing.
They should be able to support you
Regardless of how they feel about a situation or what you
want to do, they should be supportive. It can be going back to school, changing
a course, having more babies or leaving your current job. A partner who
understands you will get your point of view, correct you but also support you.
They are not afraid to speak their mind to you
The reason people lie in relationships is not to hurt
someone’s feelings, or not create a situation that will be explosive; so they
lie. You and your partner should be able to be open with each other. Most
partners would rather watch their partner destruct rather than get the rear end
of a foot stuck in them. In the end you have someone trying to dig you out of a
deeper pit than what it should have been.
They know when it is not the time to deal with anything with
A partner who can take themselves out of a situation and
come back later to deal with it is priceless in my opinion. It is not them
being disrespectful or ignoring you but preventing something explosive. They
know you are not solving anything so they walk away until you are sane enough
to actually have a conversation. The problem only comes in when people sweep it
under the rag and not confront it.
They respect your opinion
The worst kind of relationship is when one partner looks
down on you. They think you think as a child. When you talk they raise a
newspaper and say they are listening. Or when you talk to other people around
him or her you notice them giving pointed looks at other people like they are
now rolling their eyes at the back of their heads while you give you ‘small’
opinion. That is very frustrating.
