Infatuation is a funny thing. Everything is sunshine and rainbows in the beginning, but in the throes of the “honeymoon” phase with a new beau, it can be very easy to become blind to small red flags. The following small warning signs can help you know if your “good guy” really might not be quite so good for you after all.
He engages in “mate guarding”
Keeping body contact at all times, being a flesh satellite, barking at other men who breathe your air. Plenty of guys out there subscribe to that macho “claim your woman” philosophy that’s been plastered all over the media, and truthfully, that’s why so many guys aren’t worth spending more than 15 seconds on. Guys are truly secure in their value won’t be so insecure that they can’t handle you interacting with other male humans.
He’s afraid to disagree with you
If your good guy doesn’t have his own opinions, he’s either a coward or a liar; you don’t want these types of men to be your significant other. Men who are confident and dependable won’t sacrifice what they believe in just to appease you, and men who believe in nothing can’t be counted on at all.
He compares himself to other guys a lot
A man who is self-assured isn’t fixated on what all of the other guys are doing with their lives; instead, he is fully dedicated to his mission and purpose. A valuable man brings other men of value up, instead of tearing them down to feel better about himself.
He’s $exually insecure
If you and your man aren’t on the same love wavelength, then this will inevitably become a real problem down the line that can’t be ignored. You and your man need to be able to have an honest, mutual understanding about what your physical desires and limits are; if he can’t have that kind of conversation, he’s probably not mature enough to handle other matters.
