Characteristics Your Man Should Have For a Successful Relationship

Sep 2, 2008
Not all men are created equal - there are the boys and then there are men. Those men worth having have abilities that can make or break a relationship. See if your man has these emotional abilities to keep the relationship going.

Characteristic #1 - Level headed and Mature. There will always be arguments and disagreements in a relationship. How does he handle his emotions? If he gets impatient and flares up without resolving the issues like a mature adult, then there's a possibility that he's immature. Does he keep on pointing an accusing finger at others and never seems to see that he could be at fault? These are signs that your man might still need to grow up emotionally.

As in any other relationship, there will be bumpy roads ahead. If your man is mature enough, he'll be able to keep his emotions under control. He may not agree with you all the time, but he'll keep an open mind and be man enough to say what's on his mind. He won't always nod in agreement, but both of you will be able to talk things over without anyone losing their temper.

Characteristic #2 - Ability to have good relationships with other people. A mature person will cultivate relationship with others and take them seriously. As the saying goes -- "If a friend is good to you but rude to the waitress, then he is not a good friend."

A mature man has the ability to cultivate and maintain a healthy relationship with you and at the same time take care of his relationship with others. He knows that if a woman makes him choose between her and his friends, family, or career, then she's not someone he'd want to be with for the rest of his life.

Characteristic #3 - Has dreams he wants to achieve. Immature men will tell you their dreams about having big houses or being rich or being ale to drive the flashiest cars. In short, immature men are so full of themselves that all they see is their own material desires and nothing else.

Meanwhile, mature men's dreams would involve not only themselves but also about how the world would become a better place because of them. He'll tell you of his dream of taking care of orphans and kids on the streets or finding ways to achieve world peace. He dreams big - his own selfish goals and aspirations come second.

No comparison right? Surely you know which "dreamy" man is more suitable for a long-term relationship.

Knowing the characteristics to look out for is the first step. The next step would be for you to be the kind of woman who attracts these kinds of men into your life. This is not rocket science - just be as mature as the man you want to be with. The ideals mentioned above doesn't apply only for him, but for you as well. The more you grow, the more you'll realize that life is fun and exciting, even when you're single at the moment.
