1. Introducing you: When he introduces you to family and friends, he should be saying wonderful things about you. He may go as far as making you seem like you're an angel on Earth. It's not that he's lying, it's just that he thinks so highly of you he can't help but brag.

2. Admiring your strong opinion: If your man is putting you down for having a strong opinion then he needs to hit the road. Your man should find it attractive when you have a strong opinion you're willing to discuss with others.

3. Taking your advice: There will be times when you're more knowledgeable about a specific topic than he is. He should turn to you for advice instead of pretending to know everything. If you're extremely interested in a topic then he'll ask you about it out of genuine curiosity, not because he feels obligated.

4. Sharing his knowledge: If he is knowledgeable in a certain area, he won't be arrogant about it. He'll want to teach you what he knows instead of keeping it selfishly to himself.

5. Accepting your flaws: As Hannah Montana said, everybody makes mistakes. If he makes you feel bad for messing up, he isn't respecting you. Instead of calling you weak, he should help you out.

6. Checking up on you: There will probably be a time where you guys aren't together physically whether it's due to school, work, vacation, etc. He'll always check in with you and he'll wish you were there with him.

7. Taking you along: When it comes to social events you'll always be his plus one even if the event doesn't explicitly ask for plus ones. He won't be afraid to introduce you to his coworkers.

8. Befriending your friends: Instead of making the relationship just about him and his friends he tries to be friends with your friends as well. He wants to make time for you and your friends.

9. Leaning on you: He's not afraid to lean on you when he's vulnerable. Whether he's sad, sick, or anything like that he realizes he isn't weak but he's trusting you.

10. Genuinely apologizing: Sometimes we hurt the people we love. It's a part of life. If he hurts you, he should genuinely apologize for his actions and strive to not make the same mistake again.

11. Being fair: Sometimes you'll get into fights with each other. If you snap off on your man, he shouldn't let that change his opinion of you.

12. Helping you out: If he goes out of his way to make you feel better when you're going through a stressful situation then he's a keeper. He should never make you feel worse about yourself in a time of stress and pain.

13. Cheering for you: You guys should be each other's number one fans. He should always support your endeavors.

14. Admitting you're right: To him, you'll be right around 70% of the time. Instead of arguing just to argue, he acknowledges you were right.
