Some guys are just better. That is to say, as is the case with all people, that some guys are just better people. Good people.
Here are 10 qualities and characteristics of men that might make them a really great partner:
1. When he looks at you, he really looks at you.
Have you ever had a man look into your eyes in such a way that you feel it in your stomach. He's not just looking at your eyes but he's looking at you.
He's trying to connect with your deeper self. He's acknowledging that beautiful soul inside.
2. He’s a kind man, but not a pushover.
This guy lands in the middle of the spectrum when it comes to aggression. He's not the guy who is going to jockey for alpha position but he's also not one to lie down like a door mat. He has power but he also has empathy. He'll fight for what's right but prefers compassion.
3. He’s driven, but patient.
You need a man who is successful. And that can look like any number of things. He doesn't have to be rich or famous, but he needs to have done something of which he is proud. But it doesn't come easy. So he needs to also display patience and take things as they come.
4. He has incredibly ambitious dreams, but is down to earth nonetheless.
Someone who thinks bigger picture is someone with a beautiful mind. You want someone who dreams big but knows that he might have to settle for a smaller version of that dream. But that is okay. Knowing that doesn't melt his ego or make him feel like anything less. This kind of guy will want to make things better but won't make promises that he can't keep.
5. He can cook.
Who doesn't like a man who can cook? Men who prepare their own meals tend to eat healthier and live a healthier lifestyle. Living a long, healthy, life together is beyond ideal.

6. He’s physically active.
If he floats your boat, this is a good thing. A man who takes care of his appearance may be one who exercises and stays in shape. This is a good thing down the road. It will keep him healthy and keep him in top sexual performance mode. It also helps keep him interested in sex. Wins all around!
7. He’s willing to lose an argument for the sake of keeping the peace.
I have a Dr. Phil guilty pleasure. You can often hear him asking people, "do you want to be right or do you want to be happy?" You need a man who wants to be happy. Yes, there are right and wrong arguments but most of the time, it isn't so cut and dry. Having a partner who is willing to let it go, is one who sees merit in what you are saying. He may not agree but he is able to see that you feel just as strongly about it and knows that you have reached an impasse. It is okay to end it there.
8. He has an uncanny ability to make you laugh and smile.
Is there anything better? You have a really bad day and within moments of seeing or talking to your man, you're grinning like that cat that ate the canary. He puts you at ease and makes you laugh. Hold on to that guy! Life gets tough and you need a partner that will travel with you but also lighten the load.
9. He tells you he loves you although he doesn’t really have to – you can feel that he loves you.
Sometimes words aren't enough. Actions speak volumes. His behaviour more than proves the way he feels for you. But, just to be sure, he tells you anyway. Having no doubt that your man loves you is a truly beautiful thing.
10. Whenever you need any sort of help, he’s always offering to give you a hand.
Again with the actions. Having someone willing to help you out and support you, no questions asked is something that isn't as common as we like to think. Having a guy in your life that wants to help simply because he loves you and knows you need it -- especially if you don't ask for it -- is a guy worth hanging on to.
