13. To Fight For Us No Matter What
Your boyfriend needs to stand up for you if people are insulting you or saying something horribly offensive. However, if you are the one that is doing the insulting or something offensive, then he isn’t obligated to support that kind of behavior. He needs to support you but he doesn’t have to agree with you if you are acting irrational, especially when it is out in public. Depending on how skilled he is at saving face, he might wait until you two are alone to explain how your behavior may have been inappropriate. Remember that if he isn’t taking your side on something, there is typically a reason.
We have seen that scene where Jon Cusack plays that song for the woman he is trying to woo outside of her room or that time when Matt Damon chased Mimi Rodgers to California in Good Will Hunting. Typically, events like that never occur. Guys might try their hardest to make the relationship work, but they are not going to go to extreme lengths.
12. To Know The Right Thing To Say In Every Situation
If you are one of those girls that watches rom-com movies on the reg, than there needs to be some awareness that movies do not reflect real life. We have become familiarized with the scenes in movies where the male lead knows exactly what to say to the girl so that she falls in love with him. They both smitten with one another and then they both live happily ever after. In reality, the opposite usually happens. More likely than not, the guy in our lives are more likely to say the exact opposite of what they want to hear. Set your expectations based on getting to know your guy on a personal level rather than comparing him to fictional characters that you see in movies or on TV.
11. To Never Look At Other Women
Sorry, ladies but men are biologically programmed to be visual creatures. This means that no matter how hot we are, our boyfriends are always going to look at other women whether we like it or not. Though our dudes owe it to us to at least show some discretion and not start panting like a dog in heat every time a hottie walks by, there is no need to be alarmed by this. Even if you are in a long-term relationship and he would never dream of being with anyone else, he is still going to notice female beauty that inhabits the same room as he does. When men see a physically attractive woman, a chemical reaction happens in their brain where the neurotransmitters dopamine and serotonin are released and give him an involuntary surge of pleasure. A part of him is going to wonder what it would be like to be with her. It is one thing to think about it, but acting on it is obviously cheating. If it is any consolation, this was the same reaction he probably had when he saw you for the first time.
