21 Types Of Men That Are Worth Giving A Chance

21 Types Of Men That Are Worth Giving A Chance

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.

Want more signs? Here’s 8 signs he’s in love with you.

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?

    He could be all of the above if u hav a nice house and a lot of money which he could be after, girls make sure he has a proper job and work ethic I don’t see that listed above

    Women, leave the men alone. It’s time you find self love and self respect. Women are systematically brainwashed to be doormats. And thats AFTER paying the IRS. Slavery within the slaverish walls of a one way relationship. Go live your life, the way you want it. Don’t get suckered into a slave roll, men naturally kmow women will do this.

  • John October 10, 2016, 2:37 am

    First you have to be someone a guy is willing to take a chance on. And you’re not. So articles like this are pointless.

  • John July 1, 2016, 2:14 am

    No, this is not what women want. As evidence that this is true, look at who they date. Don’t believe anything a woman says; observe what she does. I’m through explaining to them why they’re so unhappy. They’ll never get it.

  • G. Howard July 2, 2015, 8:22 am

    I personally like to hear the guys voice for the first few times that we communicate :) You can tell his personality and mood much better compared to a text message that is way to general and flat.

  • Jeffica Holler June 29, 2015, 5:00 pm

    I have a man that I really like and he might not always been the best type of guy (like the ones listed here), but I always feel good when I am with him! Does that help?

  • Devin M. June 29, 2015, 4:47 pm

    It is nice to see a list that actually helps out guys like myself. I am many of these, but there are so many douche bombs out there making a bad name for ALL men that I usually start behind the 8-ball in some cases.

  • Meredith Shuler June 26, 2015, 2:58 pm

    Great list of qualities that every woman deserves.

    • Kathy R. July 2, 2015, 8:35 am

      I felt the same way!

  • Lilly E. June 26, 2015, 2:19 pm

    It is hard to find a good guy that has a few of these qualities. However, I did find one that loves my family and texts me more than I text him so that must be a good sign, right?

  • Angelina Meyers June 22, 2015, 6:11 pm

    I would have to agree that if you can find a guy like any of these, you would be in pretty good shape.

  • Absofsteelmagnolias June 22, 2015, 4:38 pm

    I wish these types of men would come around me. I would latch on so quickly for the simple fact of how rare they are for me to see. Great list, however. Thanks for sharing!

  • Brigid V. June 22, 2015, 4:19 pm

    I have a b/f that likes to share his feelings. I feel pretty good about that since most of my ex’s would not express anything but anger. It might not have been towards me, but it was anger nonetheless. At that point you feel like you are in a toxic relationship.

  • Kari Stars June 22, 2015, 1:11 pm

    I have a man that does things like this. We are very serious and have been together for about 3 years now. I am hoping that he will be popping the question very soon.

  • Becky SchultZ June 22, 2015, 12:01 pm

    I would say that this is a very good list. Any man that does these things has a great head on his shoulders, in most cases, and was brought up the right way by his parents.

  • E. Hansen June 22, 2015, 11:34 am

    Very good points. IF you can find a guy that has even two of these types of personality traits, you need to hold him down tight. Good luck to those that are looking!

  • Andrea Scott June 19, 2015, 12:34 pm

    If you can show me a single man that comes with at least 2 of these types of personality, I am all over that. LOL. It is not easy to find a good man, at least where I live.

  • Rhythah June 18, 2015, 2:05 am

    Yeah there are still a few men with these traits and i am glad i am glad i am married to one of them

  • Deanna June 16, 2015, 6:10 pm

    I have always been a sucker for a man that can make a sacrifice or two. If they are going to put aside something they really want to do to spend time with me or go out of their way for me, I will melt in their hands.

  • GirlsRule June 16, 2015, 4:08 pm

    The best thing about giving a man like these a chance is that you have little to lose. The guy is going to be good if his personality matches with things like this, it is just a matter of how good!

  • Alley Necca June 16, 2015, 3:35 pm

    Anytime you can get a man to be exclusive, that is one to hold on to :)

    • Vettie June 22, 2015, 3:44 pm

      I thought the same thing. It was only 5 years later that he wasn’t so exclusive and my heart was crushed. I guess it can happen to anyone!

  • Darrin G. June 14, 2015, 3:47 pm

    I love to see my gf in her lounge shirt. she is more relaxed and that is just way sexier to me than anything else.

  • Allison W. June 14, 2015, 3:36 pm

    There are so many bad men out there, at least where I live, If I was able to find ANY that fit into the list you have here, I would be amazed and would actively pursue them for sure!

  • BensGirl June 10, 2015, 7:23 pm

    I would give these guys a chance for sure. Its the guys that only meet some of these that I question, but do not want to leave them off the list.

  • Julie June 10, 2015, 7:12 pm

    ALL great traits to see in a man. Now if they would only come around where I live, we would be in business.

  • Cherish G. June 9, 2015, 9:44 am

    I love a guy that sends flowers at random times. It speaks so much love without have to say words and that is the best part about it!

    • Shawna Weston June 26, 2015, 2:42 pm

      I LOVE this about my guy! Random flowers, calls, texts, dinners all make the difference when you are trying to keep things real.

  • Debbie Y. June 9, 2015, 9:28 am

    I have had a man that wanted to be exclusive before I did. Yeah, that did not work out too well as he was “exclusive” with a few others. I would agree that a man that likes to spend time with his family, however, is a good man!
