Are there are tell-tale signs of a good, faithful man? According to a study by one behavioral specialist, the answer is, yes.
We spoke with women in Salt Lake City who made their own guesses as to what makes a man faithful.
"They got to respect a woman, and be grateful" said Karla coca
Katie Copeland followed with "confidence and trust."
These ladies, without knowing, are right on the money. We decided to use our friend Phil Dunphy as our male role model. The Modern Family dad may be a little dorky but he's actually a shining example of a faithful man.
"I think he's a good example for the most part, he does some goofy things but he's a good guy," said Kellie Englehardt.
"if he's confident, if he's trustworthy, then ya, definitely,” said Katie Copeland.
According to behavioral specialist, doctor Patrick Wanis, you have to look for a man who has respect. If a man respects women, he's less likely to view them as objects.
If your man craves attention, Beware. Wanis says a man who needs to be liked by everyone, is more likely to invite bad behavior from other women.
He should also be grateful, if he appreciates what he has, he’s less likely to stray.
Another positive trait is security. If a man is secure in himself, he won’t feel the need to seek out acceptance from other women.
A man should also be able to keep his word, and be emotionally intelligent. That means he knows how to think before he speaks, and can read emotional cues from others.
He should also not have a daredevil streak. If he doesn’t fear taking risks, he won’t fear the loss that could be associated with it.
Finally, how well your man communicates is a key factor. An expressive man is a happy man. If he can talk with you about anything, he won't hold it in and let it fester.
