8 Characteristics of a Good Man ...

By Melissa

Ever wonder what the characteristics of a good man are? If you are in the dating scene, I am sure you have? We all have wanted to know the type of things to look for in a good man. Take a peek at these 8 characteristics of a good man and keep them in mind during your next date.

1 Faithful

As a woman, finding a faithful man should be one of the main characteristics of a good man we look for. I’d much rather a guy be man enough to break up with me than out cheating behind my back. If this isn’t working for you and your heart (or other parts) are looking elsewhere than let me know so I can move on too.

2 Honesty

Honesty is very important also. Not just honesty to you, but also his honesty to other people. If he is quick to lie to his boss or even his friend than he probably can’t be trusted. One day it may leave you doubting his word.

3 Financially Sound

A characteristic of a good man isn’t that he makes a lot of money, but that he handles his money well. Even a man with a fat pay check can be broke. Take time to figure out how he uses credit cards and if he bothers to save money.

4 Sense of Humor

One of my favorite characteristics of a good man is a sense of humor. I love a guy that can make me laugh and enjoys laughing too. I couldn’t handle being in a relationship with a guy who lacked humor.

5 Easy Going

I also want someone I can feel at ease talking to. If you have to walk around on egg shells or feel anxious to be around a person, it just doesn’t seem right.

6 Respectful

Another characteristic of a good man is respect. He needs to have manners and treat others with respect. He also needs to be someone that deserves respect. The worse thing is to be around someone who is unnecessarily rude to others and acts inappropriately.

7 Family Orientated

Does he value family? He may not come from the best family, but a characteristic of a good man is having family values. He needs to understand the importance of having parents as good role models and the benefits of a tight family bond, even if that isn’t the life he’s had.

8 Driven

Having goals and motivation is another characteristic of a good man. You want someone that is always trying to do better and is driven to try harder at everything he does. That means he will always try his best to please you.

Finding a man with characteristics of a good man isn’t hard. Keeping these characteristics in mine will help you weed out the bad guys and focus on the good ones. What are some characteristics of a good man that you like?
