12 Signs You’re Dating A Real Man, Not A Man-Child


12 Signs You’re Dating A Real Man, Not A Man-Child

Let’s face it ladies, you’ve always dreamt of dating real, grown-up men, but have inevitably ended up with immature boys.

Well, it’s quite possible that after repeatedly going through such disappointments, you feel that the fault is somewhere in you. Let me tell you that it’s not. 

Also, let me tell you to never settle for someone who doesn’t really deserve you. Sensible, mature, and truly grown-up men are indeed a reality. I cannot deny that they are somewhat difficult to find, but you’ve got to keep your eyes wide open.

Here are 12 ways in which you can distinguish between a boy and a real man.

1. Well-kept apartment

With maturity always comes responsibility and it is never limited to only certain aspects of our lives. A matured, grown-up man would always be responsible for the way he maintains his apartment, even though it is not something too lavish or extravagant.

2. Self-motivating

Any grown-up man is bound to have a plan for himself regarding the things he wants to do and those that he wants to be. Moreover, he would himself be motivated to achieve his dreams.

3. Self-sufficient

If your lover is capable of taking good care of himself, even in very bad situations, know that you are loving a man. To put it otherwise, you don’t need to babysit such a man, no matter what.

4. Opinionated

A grown-up man is bound to have his own opinions about things. Consequently, he might not blindly agree to anything and everything that you say to him. Rather, he would be mature enough to calmly and respectfully communicate his thoughts on the matter.

5. Priorities

As a man grows up, he learns to set his priorities right. A grown-up man wouldn’t seem as if he is lost somewhere with no idea about what he wants from his life. Your man would not be wandering around, but would certainly move in a particular direction. Moreover, you’d be one of his priorities.

6. Concerned about self-care

Knowing fully well that he has a lot to do, a man would always take care of his body, as well as his mind. He is always aware that life is good only when one has a healthy body and a sound mind.

7. Supportive

A grown-up man would never discourage you regarding the things that you want to achieve in life. They’d never tell you that you are incapable or that you won’t be good at something if you tried. On the contrary, they would always motivate you with their positivity and support.

8. No complaints

Having realized the futility of complaining, a grown man doesn’t endorse that. Rather, he would try his best to make something happen despite the odds.

9. Accommodative decision maker

A real man might be making the decisions for himself and for you, but all the while, he would be ready to accommodate your opinions or thoughts. At times, he might even completely surrender and let you decide, for being a man, he’d know that you might be better.

10. Undivided attention

After the day’s work or otherwise, you would have his undivided attention when the two of you are alone. A grown man wouldn’t be distracted by a TV show or something as trivial as that. He would make sure that he gives you the attention you deserve.

11. Admittance of guilt

This, probably, is one of the brightest signs that your partner is indeed a man. A grown-up man would never point his fingers at others but would recognize his mistakes whenever he is wrong. He would accept his guilt and try to learn from it. He would never try to hide it away.

12. Appreciative

A truly grown-up man would always realize the value that you bring to his life. Owing to this recognition, he would always appreciate the good things in you and would treat you the way he should. He is bound to have a lot of care for you and he’d always recognize that you are important for him.

So, in all, close speculation of some significant habits and behaviors can help you choose between a man and a boy. So, go ahead and live your dream.
