Ladies: What are the characteristics of a "good boyfriend"?

Asked by BarnacleBill (16065points) September 25th, 2010

This question is prompted by a recent question. What characteristics or behaviors are appreciated in guys that you date?

The thought struck me that a list in search engine immortality might be helpful to others who aren’t sure what this means.

I’d like him to have…
a sense of genuine conversation/humor.
a good relationship with his parents/others.
good communication skills/honesty.
good conflict resolution skills.
basic self-control.
and I would like to be attracted to him physically.

I’ll let you know if I ever go out on a date again.

@lucillelucillelucille, examples, please. Those terms are too broad and as a result are open to male misinterpretation.

I can’t remember. I haven’t been on a date for 3 years, 4 months. But who is counting?

Hmmmm,lets seeeee…...
It is nice if they consider your interests want to find out more about them, are open to them and to trying new things together.
I am a romantic and have always liked romantic men…creativity comes into play there.If he pays attention and knows what you like,then any small gesture would make my heart skip a beat.
Funny guys are great! They are not afraid to goof off and I like that in a person.If someone takes themself too seriously it will bore the hell out of me.
I like people that know how to live!
Kindness.He has to treat animals and children with kindness or he is fired.
Last but not least,honesty.

Considerate- not just to me but to others too. Doesn’t abuse waitstaff, that kind of thing.
Compassionate- to me this includes kindness and patience.
Attentive- includes affectionate and protective.
Romantic- will do things for me even if they’re not “his thing”.
Honest- will be open emotionally to me and not sugar coat everything. This does not mean he can call me names when he’s feeling angry.

@Neizvestnaya could not have said it better. I agree because it’s exactly what I was going to say.
