Let’s face it – there are a lot of guys out there that are just flat out not worth your time or who will end up breaking your heart. Even though it’s easy to group men into a collective bunch, there are actually lots of different type of men.
So we know there are guys who definitely aren’t worth your time, but here’s the real question. Are there guys worth your time? Yes, there are. But the guys that are worth it? Well, they’re a little bit rarer – but they also deserve a little bit more of a chance than the guys who aren’t.
Here are 21 types of men that you should probably give an extra chance to if they come into your life:
A man who proposes being exclusive
Yes, they do exist. Not all men want to just sleep around and keep things casual until you bug them enough that they finally decide to be in an official, monogamous relationship. There are guys who know a good thing when they’ve got one – and want to lock down a woman who makes them happy.
A man who brings you into his life and introduces you to the people who are important to him
Isn’t it nice when a man actually takes the initiative and introduces you to his good friends and his family? It certainly beats dragging a guy to a family event to meet yours. On the flip side, if a guy is purposefully hiding you from the people in his life, this is a major red flag that he’s not the type of guy you want in your life.
A man who’s not afraid to compromise
No, it doesn’t make you less of a man to compromise, and the man who knows that winning isn’t everything is the man who is a joy to be in a relationship with.

A man who actually wants to know your friends
Your friends are your friends – it’s not like they’re going to stop being your friends anytime soon. So a guy who actually takes the time to get to know them and becomes friends with them is definitely a keeper.
A man who enjoys spending time with your family
There are too many guys in this world who think spending time with their s/o’s family is a chore, a duty to be performed unhappily and without joy. But the guy who actually likes spending time with your family, and bonds with them as if they were his own? He’s rare.
A man who can make a plan (and stick to it)
When you’re trying to schedule a dinner date with him and he actually shows up after only a couple texts about it? That’s a guy who’s worth keeping by your side.

A man who is passionate about the same things you are
The big things in life are pretty non-negotiable – if he doesn’t want the same things out of life that you do, then things probably aren’t going to work out. Make sure you’re on the same page with any guy that has serious potential
A man who calls you (on the phone!) after meeting you
No waiting 3 days and sending a vague text. No games. No funny stuff. Just an honest to god, pleasant phone call from a real man who actually wants to talk to you. Guys like this are a dying breed.
A man who texts back right away
Enough of this waiting around for him to text back forever, worrying more and more that you said the wrong thing. (After all, you can see right on the screen that he read your text! What is he waiting for!??!) Who has time for a guy that won’t text back for days? Nobody, that’s who.
A man who doesn’t mind watching the TV shows you like
He knows it makes you happy. He knows you love it. And he probably (secretly) loves it too. These guys are the best.
A man who cuts off any other relationships once he gets serious about you
Even before you get exclusive, a man who stops fooling around with anyone else because he knows he wants you is a guy with principles. In other words, the kind of guy you want in your life.
A man who will kiss you like he really means it
And I’m not talking about perfunctory pursed lips kisses or pecks on the cheek. I’m talking about life affirming, take you and squeeze you tight deep kisses that shrink the universe down to the spot where the two of you are standing.
These 9 habits of real men will make women melt.
A man who isn’t afraid to go after what he wants
There are too many guys out there who are wishy washy wimps who can’t ever decide what they really want, let alone go after it. Not this guy, though. He knows exactly what he wants – and he’s not afraid of reaching out to grab it. (It’s you. He wants you.)
A man who can sacrifice in order to keep your relationship strong
Is he willing to disrupt his own life because you need to go after something that’s important to you? Damn right he is. A man who’s willing to put your needs before his own is a great man indeed.
A man who doesn’t think twice about sending you flowers
He’ll send them for any reason – because he wants to take you out, or because he knows you’re stressed, or because he’s thinking about you and wants you to smile. Don’t let this guy go.
A man who can share his feelings honestly
He’s not afraid of his feelings (like he’s been told to be by macho jerks all his life), and he actually shares them with you with honesty! Can you say dreamboat?
A man who won’t try to change you – or even want to
There are parts of you he loves – and parts he loves not quite as much. But he would never want to change who you truly are – he’s just purely in love with you.
A man who follows through on his promises
How hard is it to find a guy who actually does what he says he’s going to do and follows through with plans? Really hard! When you find one who won’t ever stand you up – he’s a keeper.
Every woman deserves these 4 things from a guy… no matter what!
A man who thinks you’re at your sexiest when you’re lounging in a t-shirt
He doesn’t care about makeup, he doesn’t care about your hair – he doesn’t even care about the sexy black dress you save for special occasions (OK, he cares a little about that). Mostly, all he cares about is how sexy he finds you to be – even when you’re lounging around the house in nothing more than sweats and a tee.
A man who will really, really listen to you
He knows what you love on your pizza, and what your favorite color is, and that really embarrassing story from sleepaway camp when you were 9. He remembers all of it, because he cares about you enough to really listen.
A man who will ask you to marry him
Because a man who can’t go to sleep at night without thinking about how happy he is that he gets the opportunity to spend the rest of his life with you is… well do I have to spell it out?
