We are always searching for a ‘good man’ but to be honest there are not as many in this world as we wish there were. Sure, we fall for men that we think are overwhelmingly positive and supportive only to find that we are actually head over heels for a toxic nightmare.
When you are with a real ‘good man’ things will be different. Just because the ‘boys’ of your past have hurt you and made you seemingly give up on the idea of love doesn’t mean that there are not good men out there in this world. Sometimes it takes a lot of inner searching and realization for us to understand what we are finally face to face with.
Below I am going to go over some of the signs that you are with someone that you can finally consider a ‘good man.’ You deserve all that he has to offer you. Treat him well and he will treat you well in return.
