On paper, a good boyfriend will always do romantic things that will sweep you off your feet and make you feel like you’re living in a Disney movie.
But the best boyfriend? He will do all that, and will also do all of the less than romantic things to remind you the beauty of being humble and help you stay grounded.
The best boyfriend will do everything and more to help you and make sure that you’re the happiest girl in the world, and will encourage you to bring out the very best in yourself. He will make all of your dreams come true while telling you that you’re being a brat.
He won’t just buy you the world, but he will show you how to take charge of your own world, for example teaching you to budget better and pay off all of your debt.
He won’t just take you out to fancy restaurants, he will make you dinner every night. He won’t make you feel like you need to work out to look better. He will tell you go to on a run because it will make you feel better after a rough day. He won’t tell you to ask him before you go without your friends, he will tell you to just do it.
He will bring you a book to the bathroom if he realizes you’re going to take longer than expected. He will do your laundry, he will make sure you have enough pencils for class and that you have enough toiletries on hand. He will even buy extra to make sure you never have to go without.
He will not always tell you exactly what you want to hear, but he will give you the best advice and will always be the best friend to you. He will be real with you, and that’s the most romantic unromantic thing that he can do.
