 1  Respectful

You deserve the kind of guy who would treat you with respect and acceptance. This guy won't ask you to do things that would make you uncomfortable and he won't force you to change your beliefs just for him. He respects you too much to do these things. In the end, you just have to realize that a good boyfriend doesn't have to agree with everything that you believe in. The important thing is that he genuinely respects you and your views in life. Remember that you are two completely different persons and respecting your personal differences balances your relationship with each other.

 2  Humorous

We're not saying that you should find a guy with the same humor as Louis C.K. so he can make you laugh 24/7. What we're saying is that a good boyfriend constantly makes an effort to see his girl smile. It doesn't matter if he resorts to a cheesy pick-up line or a lame knock- knock joke just to make it possible. We will still give him plus points for trying. And let's face it, seeing you smile is probably his most favorite thing in the world, anyway. See? It's a win-win situation!

 3  Trustworthy

A good boyfriend is able to erase all the lingering paranoia from your head because he evidently shows that he's worth trusting. You don't have to worry when he's not around because you're confident that wherever he is, he won't do anything that could hurt you and your relationship.

 4  Good Listener

Girls like to talk. It's what we do, we share stories. So, it's only fair that your boyfriend pays attention to your personal accounts. You don't deserve a guy who would welcome your stories with half-hearted nods and loud yawns. Always remember that a good boyfriend is genuinely interested in what you have to say.

 5  Committed

Anyone can easily make promises. But only a good boyfriend follows through. Commitment is a serious matter and it's something that most people are afraid of that's why being committed is such a big deal. Guys, listen up. We are not writing this to scare you off or to make you commit forever. Our ultimate point is this: every girl deserves a reliable guy. Strive to be that person in her life. After all, there's nothing more admirable than a man who keeps his words.

 6  Honest

An honest boyfriend has no trouble admitting his mistakes because he knows that lying would just hurt your relationship. He recognizes the importance of complete honesty that's why he tries to openly communicate his feelings. Nobody wants to be in a relationship brimming with doubts and uncertainties, right?

 7  Romantic

A good boyfriend knows how to make his girlfriend feel special. Keep in mind that being romantic is certainly not just about the grand gestures. It's not always about the airport chase scenes or fireworks displays or flash mobs in the middle of the street. Sometimes, the littlest and simplest ways are enough to make a girl's day.

To the Person Who Does Not Know Any 1D Song

By: CJ Reyno

Never in my wildest dream I imagined to meet someone who does not know a single One Direction song or who does not even know, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, and err… Zayn Malik. How did you spend your teenagehood without listening to their songs? The disrespect to my #StyPayHorLikSon. My initial reaction, Vas Happenin’?

Since I was 12 years old, that was way back on 2012, One Direction songs have been my official life soundtrip, my go-to songs whenever I feel happy, sad, mad, excited, and etch. I can still remember how people went crazy just to attend their concert here in the Philippines. I must admit, I was one of those. LOL. The group was also dubbed as, “The Biggest Boyband in the World”. They were an era. You really left me in awe when you told me that you do not know a single One Direction song. Their songs are gold. But I was a little hopeful when a new messaged popped up on our conversation, “Hey I know one, Make You Beautiful”.

You do not know how my world collapsed after reading your message. I would like to say that I appreciate the effort, thanks, but they do not have a song entitled, Make You Beautiful, because it is, What Makes You Beautiful. I tried to explain but you said that they are just the same. (Tip: Never fight with a Directioner when it comes to this because we will not let our guards down). No! They are not the same. How can you make this big mistake? LOL. What Makes You Beautiful is One Direction’s debut song. Almost everyone knows this, “you’re insecure, don’t know what for,” ring a bell? The music video of this surpassed 1 billion views on Youtube. On my 21 years of existence, you are the very first person who told me this “I-Thought-It-Was-A-Joke-But-You-Are-Serious” statement.

As a persuasive fangirl, I thought to myself that I should make you appreciate their music, that you should know that it is What Makes You Beautiful, not Make You Beautiful. The group may be in hiatus but their music is and will always remain superior. You are hard-headed lad. We even when to the point where you challenged me to treat so I can make you watch their music video. Am I even surprised that I agreed to this? HAHA. I feel like an agent trying to persuade her customer to buy a property on our company. You do not know how happy I was when you sent me your video listening to What Makes You Beautiful. I felt like I successfully closed a deal with my client. Not to exaggerate but I really jumped because of happiness after watching your video. It was the first message I checked that morning. Thank you for your effort, so much appreciated. Funny how our conversation starts with your innocence on One Direction until it goes deeper and last longer. Up All Nigh conversations which turned to almost Midnight Memories. Ironic how a Directioner had developed an admiration on someone who dislikes her favorite boys? Just like One Direction’s song, Change My Mind, “Never felt like this before. Are we friends or are we more?” I guess, like Liam’s line on Love You Goodbye, “It's inevitable everything that's good comes to an end. It's impossible to know if after this we can still be friends.”

I was happy that I made you listen to One Direction. At least I made you appreciate and made you aware that there is a song called, What Makes You Beautiful, not Make You Beautiful. I am happy that you already found your Girl Almighty. Wish me luck on finding my Summer Love. xoxo, Your Directioner friend
