Every couple defines what is best for them and their relationship. That being said, here is a list of ways to be the perfect boyfriend that's universal. If you follow these pointers, it's pretty hard to be a bad boyfriend. Sometimes relationships can be a lot of work but hopefully they're never too much. It should be natural to have respect for each other, want to be with your partner, and see them succeed. 

Communication is a huge part of every couple's journey. Remember to listen, be open, and also let her know what you need as well. Respect each other and each other's desires. 

Everyone deserves love but it can be hard to meet the right person. If you have someone you think is special, follow these steps and make sure you let her know how important she is to you, especially if you've been together for a long time. It can be easy to get into bad habits and take the person you love for granted. Listen to this list's advice and don't let that happen. Remember how lucky you both are to have found each other and do your best to treasure every moment!   
Make Her Laugh
Laughter is one of the best ways to break tension. If you can make her laugh or at least share a similar sense of humor, your relationship will likely be a lot smoother and more fun.

Listen To Her Needs
Women will let you know what they need. It's simple. Just listen to them. It's a two way street, though. Good listening and communication skills go both ways.

Respect Her Interests
It's great when couples enjoy similar things, but it isn't always the case. Respect her interests, and she'll respect yours. She may not be a sports fan, and maybe you'd rather not join her book club, but as long as there is a mutual respect for each other, you will be fine.

Have Your Own Goals and Passions
Just like you were initially attracted to her because of who she was and what she liked to do, she felt the same about you - so keep it up. Don't ditch your friends, hobbies, and passions just because you're in a relationship now.
