Talk is cheap and actions speak louder than words
It’s often easy to spot a bad apple of a man, but sometimes even the baddest of apples can look tasty to the untrained eye.
Well, fear not, we’ve got the foolproof way to help you spot a good man when you see one.
It’s all very well playing “hard to get”, but there reaches a stage in the courting process or relationship when reliability becomes a key foundation in your partnership.
Talk is cheap and actions speak louder than words; knowing you can rely on a man to stay true to his word, be there when he says he will, and call you when he’s promised to are sure signs that he is a good man.
Honesty truly is the best policy, especially when it comes to relationships.
If a man avoids sharing his true feelings with you, he may be emotionally unavailable and not yet ready to commit to a new relationship with you.
If, however, your man is able to pay you compliments and confess his feelings for you in a sincere way, he could well be a keeper.
Remembering his Ps and Qs is one thing, but watch out for his behavioral traits when interacting with others.
Aggressiveness towards others, be it passive or overt, will indicate underlying unhappiness or sheer disrespect for the feelings of other people, and this could hinder your relationship later on down the line.
You need to be with a man who supports you and doesn’t lecture or belittle you.
A real man will do his utmost to make you, and others, feel respected.
Footing every bill and ordering for his lady may not be the norm in modern-day relationships.
However, there are some chivalrous actions that will indicate you’ve found a good man.
No matter how small or grandiose the gesture, if your man holds open the door, pays you compliments, and makes an effort, these gentle nods to tradition are big nods to a good man.
If a man strives to put a smile on your face and does things that he knows will please you, these are the signs of a caring man.
All good relationships involve give-and-take, so make sure there is a balance to ensure a happy, healthy, and loving relationship.
He Respects You
Not only will he respect your opinions or beliefs, but a good man will also respect your needs.
Be it time to yourself or the need for attention and support, a foolproof way to spot a good man when you see one is to look out for the indication that he respects you.
It’s no secret that even the best of men are likely to forget dates such as your three-month anniversary.
But a man that remembers the little things, such as your big interview, or an important presentation at work, and drops you a text or gives you a call to wish you luck, is a good man for sure.

Respect is and has always been the biggest one for me. I live in the modern era; if someone doesn’t hold a door open for me I’m not going to lose sleep about it, in fact, most times I’ll hold it open for someone else. I think ”Pissoff” above has a different idea of what women consider to be respectful.
When I’m telling you something, I’d like you to pay as much attention to me as I do to you. When we’re making a decision, we don’t HAVE to go ahead with my idea/suggestion each and every time but the respectful man takes my words into consideration with a genuine and honest respect.
It is hands down the biggest way for me to spot a good person – male or female.
Respect is one of those qualities that holds true, despite gender, if you ask me, Anita.
And consideration of another person’s opinions and thoughts is definitely a part of that. If you’re a person who only pays lip-service to your partner’s opinions, your relationship isn’t going to get very far, don’t you think?
This sounds more like how to spot a good pet.
Jesus … Women don't act this way so why should men. I've lost count the amount of times I've held a door open and women breeze through like it's their right. I always like to retort in a loud voice "You're Welcome" rarely seems to embarrass them though.
Thanks for the visit and comment – welcome.
Why don't women act what way? You mean giving of themselves, respect for others and polite?
Who are you going out with?
The vast majority of my previous dates and my wife have all exhibited these traits which makes it way easier to reciprocate.
That said, sure, there's going to be people that take advantage of other people's kindness but that's life.
