What makes it good? - December 9th 2010, 12:43 PM

What makes a good boyfriend? And what makes a good girlfriend? There is no right and wrong for this, i just want opinions. Just wanna see what matters to people when it comes to relationships. Thanks x

I'd say a lot of things make a good boyfriend/girlfriend.

If I was to pick the main thing that makes a good partner then I guess I'd say the most important thing is them being there for you and trying to support you in whatever you choose to do (within reason) but also being honest with you.

Communication, communication, communication. That's a big one.

And being supporting, caring (obviously lol), and being trustworthy.

for me what makes a good boyfriend would basically mean me describing my boyfriend

Being kind and caring and very understanding, listening even when they dont know what the heck to say or how to help. knowing when to laugh and when to shut up lol. being a great cuddler hehe. humour, o god humour in a relationship just makes it feel beautiful! me and my boyfriend laugh at eachother and with eachother all the time, aslong as the other doesn't take offense then i think it's fantastic! i see some couples who have no sense of humour at all, they seem so bored with eachother! being able to talk. open mindedness and making an effort

My model of a good boyfriend is really my boyfriend, which is cheesy and embarrassing but true. He knows when to take hints and ask if somethings wrong. He would never flirt with other girls in front of me. He still pays attention to me if we're with his friends. He always makes sure I get home ok and that I text him when I get in late at night. He tells me I look nice even when I feel a mess: Boys should know that saying something like 'you're the prettiest girl here' even if it's not necessarily true, will score them maaaaaajor brownie points!! He shares his food with me and offers to pay for my drinks / cinema ticket / whatever. He'd never try and persuade me to do something physical if I wasn't feeling up for it. He listens to my opinion and he remembers details. He forces his hoodie upon me if I'm cold and he gives me chocolate. He texts me in the morning wishing me luck if I have an exam that day and if he's getting me a glass to drink out of at his house he always fetches the spotty one that I like.

Better stop before I get too gushy :/ but THOSE things are what make a good boyfriend.

What I think constitutes a good girlfriend ~ someone who knows when to talk and when to keep quiet, and when to give space. Someone supportive and confidence-building. Not emasculating. Someone laid-back who doesn't try to control their partner (or appears not to )

A great way to find out what you personally want in a boyfriend and a relationship is to make a list of the qualities you really like in a guy. Keep that and use it as a check list next time you find a possible candidate.

And it's OK to be specific, if it's what you like than you can't help that.

I would say a good partner is someone who is honest and trustworthy, and respectful of you. They are someone who shows caring, compassion, and understanding for you. They can laugh at life and at themselves, and they value intelligence and learning. They have loyalty towards you, and a willingness to work through issues that arise. Those are just some of the most important things, although there are many more.

Hey, a girl who gets it. I think I'm jealous of your boyfriend. Assuming you're actually like that, anyway.



Although I'd add a couple of things. The ideal girlfriend wouldn't flirt with other guys, and would have few to no inhibitions in bed. Also, not just let herself go physically after a couple of months together. Yeah, I'm shallow.
