1. He treats you as his queen.
He spoils you with affection, and he always makes sure your needs come first. It doesn't always have to be something grand, but his instinct to carry an extra jacket when you're watching a movie (because you 1. always forget; and 2. are always cold) is something you love about him.
2. He's in it for the long run.
Oo, walang forever. But with him, you are confident and certain that he is in it for the long haul.
3. You are his future.
His goals are set, and he sees you as The One. He doesn't waste time on unnecessary things, and he's incredibly motivated to reach his ambitions in life—one of which is to marry you.
4. He looks at you, and only you.
He never fails to remind you that you are beautiful. Every. Single. Day.
5. His values are firm.
He's not perfect, and he makes mistakes just like everyone else. But he never compromises his values for short-term satisfactions that may drag your relationship down. Ta-ta, fuckboys!
6. Your parents approve of him.
There is no better feeling in the world than knowing that your parents like your guy. He knows how to act when your parents are around—and isn't fake about it.
7. He is honest and true to you.
He tells you if an officemate flirts with him, and even laughs at the thought of being with someone else. Thanks to your man, you can now cross out overthinking and paranoia in your list of relationship woes, because he is 100% true to you.
8. He loves his family.
He never forgets to buy pasalubong for his sister, and he takes care of his lola whenever she gets sick. He even tells you about his parents, and how he idolizes their marriage! With this kind of attitude, you know what’s in it for you! <3
9. He proves that chivalry isn’t dead.
He opens the door for you, holds your hand when you cross roads, and pulls out the chair for you whenever he takes you out. Yes, these are pretty basic, but they matter and they count. <3
